This was awesome book. I was pulled in right away and loved the way the character's story evolved. It was sweet and heart wrenching at the same time. I definitely recommend.
Kevin is a popular senior at Baldwin High who's mesmerised by the beautiful Fiona at a track meet. Kevin isn't fazed by the fact that Fiona's boyfriend Ryan is the captain of the football team. Kevin's campaign to meet Fiona and date her succeeds beyond his wildest dreams and they fall in love. Kevin's happy world comes crashing down on him 4 days before prom when he's diagnosed with Morbus Hodgkin, cancer of the lymph system, which is the same cancer that killed his father when Kevin was only 2 years old. Kevin doesn't want to hold Fiona back from going to college in Florida on a scholarship and breaks up with her, letting her believe that he doesn't love her anymore. Fiona is heartbroken and breaks off all contact with Kevin and his friends. After enduring multiple rounds of painful chemo, Kevin's cancer finally goes into remission and the doctor predicts that Kevin will be cancer free in 2.5 years if he keeps up his treatments. Kevin spends Christmas at home and wakes up from a nap to see Fiona in his room. Kevin has missed Fiona like crazy and often fantasises about Fiona visiting him in the hospital so he assumes that he's just imagining things, but it turns out that Kevin's mom called Fiona and Fiona's really in his room and mad at him for not telling her that he had cancer. Kevin is happy when Fiona agrees to stay in touch and his heart feels stronger already, fuelled by the hope that Kevin might be able to win Fiona back. Fiona hasn't forgiven Kevin for not telling her he had cancer and doesn't trust him, but she's willing to take things slowly and see where things go. Will Kevin be able to pull off another miracle?
A Sketch of What You Mean is a moving story about love and sacrifice that transcends time. S.L. Giger has written a very compelling story with vulnerable and memorable characters. I highly recommend this book.
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book
Fiona is a high school athlete. She is on track to go to college. She has a boyfriend and she enjoys her life. Then she meets Kevin and her life changes. She realizes that maybe things aren't as perfect as she would like to think. They strike up a friendship but as they spend time together the more their feelings for each other grow. Things go from good to great between the two of them. Everything seems to be perfect but then something changes. Will those changes cause a broken heart? Or will tings go on as they have been?
Kevin isn't the most popular guy in school but he is popular. He is happy with his friends and his life. He doesn't understand love...that is until he lays eyes on Fiona. He falls for her right away. He now understands how someone could fall in love at first sight. He plans and comes up with a strategy to get to know her. He is successful and they spend a lot of time together. She tells him he can't flirt with her because she has a boyfriend but he knows he can't promise her that. When he finds out he is sick he knows he must let her go. Can he live with that decision? Or will he regret it?
I really enjoyed reading A Sketch of What You Mean to Me. I liked the main characters a lot. I thought their romance was cute. I liked the way he devised a plan to get to know her. There were times I laughed in this book and a time or two that I cried. It's an emotional read and not just because Kevin gets sick. I liked Kevin but I thought he was kind of stupid. I know he did what the thought was best, and maybe I would have done the same thing in that situation, but it seemed to be a bit much. I liked Fiona too. She was sweet, intelligent, kind, and a good match for Kevin. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading sweet YA romance reads.
I really loved the way the story and the characters evolved.
I think this is one of those stories that stay with me for a long time!
I got a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Thanks, Seraina, for giving me a chance to read it!
