Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern
 
Release Date: June 3, 2014
 
Summary: Born with cerebral palsy, Amy can't walk without a walker, talk without a voice box, or even fully control her facial expressions. Plagued by obsessive-compulsive disorder, Matthew is consumed with repeated thoughts, neurotic rituals, and crippling fear. Both in desperate need of someone to help them reach out to the world, Amy and Matthew are more alike than either ever realized.

When Amy decides to hire student aides to help her in her senior year at Coral Hills High School, these two teens are thrust into each other's lives. As they begin to spend time with each other, what started as a blossoming friendship eventually grows into something neither expected.
 
Why I Want to Read: This book is being compared to The Fault in Our Stars (which I loved) and Eleanor and Park (which I am dying to read). That alone makes me curious about this one. Plus, I love a good contemporary novel with unique characters and this summary promises loads of that! I'm jealous of all you bloggers that already have a copy. I can't wait to see some reviews; I hope they are positive.

Wow a book that is being compared to TFIOS and Eleanor & Park is definitely going straight into my TBR pile. Thank you for sharing this, I hadn't heard of it before!

Okay, so firstly- what a cool-sounding premise! Amy seems like a super likable main character, and I can't wait to meet her! :D But the fact that it's being compared to TFiOS just pretty much seals the deal: I have to read this! Thanks for sharing, Mag- this looks so so good <3 x :)

okay, I loved The Fault in Our Stars, but I didn't really like Eleanor and Park. *ducks* =P

But I think I'll try this book anyway because it sounds really interesting. =) Thanks for sharing!

I'm really interested in this one too! And I love the simplicity of the cover, very much like the art on Rainbow Rowell's books. :)

Comparing it to The Fault in Our Stars means a lot of HIGH expectations, though! I hope it meets it - it does sound like an awesome read!

I love the cover for this one! I think I remember seeing the proof of it on TeaTime with Epic Reads. It does sound really amazing though.

The cover has a very Rainbow Rowell vibe.

It sounds amazing too.

Sounds like a book that would make me cry. I still can't bring myself to read Fault of Our Stars even though I've had a copy for such a long time. Great pick! :)
