About the Author

He works full-time as a Graphic Artist and loves to write on his free time. Anything to silence the voices of multiple characters and situations running rampant through his head on a daily basis. He enjoys manga, anime, television, movies, and of course books. Just about anything that makes him feel emotion is fair game.

As the synopsis says, after a tragic accident, Sam is left fighting for her life. I was literally on the the edge of my seat the entire book over this. I was so desperate to find out if she would survive, my stomach was going crazy with nerves. But Casey keeps you holding on until the end before you find out by passing the time with Alan thinking back on the life he shared with his best friend.
The story was kept fresh by the constant back and forth of memories past, and the present heartache of not knowing if he was about to lose the girl he’s loved his whole life, all while having to come to terms with how his own life has changed. I absolutely loved seeing parts of Alan and Sam’s childhood. Watching their friendship start, a bond form, and grow into something that some people can only wish for. It was truly beautiful and the perfect light relief from what was happening in the rest of the book. And holy hotness Casey! He sure knows how to write the sexy stuff!
Though the majority of the book was highly emotional, it was absolutely nothing compared to the end. I was a wreck. Plain and simple. As we get closer and closer to finding out if Sam will pull through, we also get closer to finding out about a huge part of Sam and Alan’s relationship. I was non stop crying. Full on, ugly crying! Happy tears, sad tears, happy tears, sad tears, happy tears . . . I think you get my point. I was in bits. My heart didn’t know whether to break or burst with joy.
If you don’t buy this book and read it straight away then trust me, you will be more than kicking yourself when you finally see what you’ve been missing. A book like The Time Until by Casey Ford doesn’t come about all that often. It was beautiful, heartbreaking, breathtaking, moving, and incredibly emotional. A book that will stay with you for a lifetime. Definitely worthy of 5+ stars.
After a tragic accident leaves Sam in a coma, we follow their story in a series of flashbacks from Alan's POV. From the first day of kindergarten to angst-filled teenager life and onto college. We join Alan as he relives the most vital moments in his life. First friendship, first love, first loss. And the hope he hangs on to as he watches Sam lay helplessly in a hospital bed.
This is an emotional read that will have you laughing one moment and crying hysterically the next, and it is oh, so worth it!
