E Loch Ness monster Now I believe in science statistics and antibiotics So says seventeen year old Zac Meier during a long grueling leukemia treatment in Perth Australia A loud blast of Lady Gaga alerts him to the presence of Mia the angry not at all stoi See reviews at YA Midnight Reads35 stars Thank you Text Publishing for sending me this copy No compensation was given or taken to alter this review 'I'm the least brave of everyone I never signed up for this war Leukaemia conscripted me the fucker' Zac and Mia had a John Green vibe to it the synopsis immediately reminded me of The Fault in Our Stars While not as fantastic Zac and Mia has a strong story filled with wit humour and heart felt moments But let me stress that this book should not be in comparison to The Fault in Our Stars Zac and Mia carries it's own uniue story about two teens living with cancer The execution is utterly antithetic Both main characters Zac and Mia were enjoyable Zac had a judgemental narrative point at times yet his sarcasm and general authenticity made it hard not to love him Zac has been dealing with leukaemia for some time and during his time in the hospital meets dangerously fiery Mia Who seems to have a bad taste in music Who shouts at her mum Who has no friends that know about her fatal illness In all honesty I found Mia unappealing for the majority of the novel With her constant swearing ignorance and crude behaviour I felt isolated from her nonetheless all her glaring flaws seem to have a foreshadowing meaning to it which resulted me into likening Mia eventually While the family relationships only held a minuscule part to Zac and Mia I still feel the urge to commend it In contrary to Mia and her mother's yelling and coldness Zac and his mum's connection I loved to pieces They were small sentiments playing Call of Duty and talking but it was cogent tight and absolute bittersweetness Moreover a great contrast to the deep topics of illness which I thought was fleshed out well Not entirely dramatic but realistic in the sense that I was told from the perspective of a teenager Zac and Mia surprisingly was not solely romance based Yes there was a chemistry but it wasn't overpowering at all The connection between Zac and Mia was of a friendship during cancer the hold to reality even Nevertheless the romance isn't typical and eye roll a rama it's gradual not too gradual sweet but not too sweet Briefly the plot seemed a little lacking to me some background drama not in the dramatic sense would've been preferred to make it eventful Yet on the other side of the scale the writing was close to perfect A J Betts effortlessly created a story while daringly similar to John Green's still eually fascinating and touching All in all with minor flaws in the plot and characters I found myself still loving the story overall Compassionate and confronting are two words to describe this novel My friends and I have a theory We have all read The Fault in Our Stars and absolutely adored it if anyone can remember Isaac the short name is pretty much Zac And there's Monica but Mia seems pretty similar enough Our theory is that this is the story of Isaac and Monica before The Fault in Our Stars was taken place Of course that was just our hopes since TFiOS is something that keeps coming back to traumatise us Additionally Isaac and Monica's word was always the synopsis mentions always Could that be they're okay?

Zac and MiaC cancer patient in the room next door Once released the two near strangers can't forget each other even as they desperately try to resume normal lives The story of their mysterious connection drives this unflinchingly tough tender novel told in two voice Buy this book HERE on or buy this book HERE on BookDepository with FREE WORLDWIDE SHIIPPING I received an advanced reader's edition of this book from the publisher for free in exchange for an honest review All opinions are my own 4 of 5 stars Please read my rating system further below Though similar to John Green's The Fault In Our Stars I think I might have to say that Zac and Mia was one of the best books that I've read all year; it was so heart warming and refreshing I remember myself cracking up every few minutes each time I would try to read in an Australian accent since the novel is Australian I loved how awkwardly Zac and Mia met and how their differences sparked such a great friendship especially their morse code conversations about Lady Gaga and texting over Facebook Friendship not romance It's so common for healthy and friendly relationships in YA books to turn into romance and I loved how Zac and Mia's stayed the same it never changed making it such a breath of fresh air Out of the two perspectives that the book was told in Zac and Mia each had a perspective Zac’s by far had to be my favorite Did I mention that he loves Emma Watson? He was such an interesting character All of his decisions were driven by math and logic except when it came to Mia Mia on the other hand was a bit selfish and reckless but I really enjoyed seeing her change as a character Zac as the story progressed and her changing herself was great as well Overall I would really recommend this book to anybody who likes to friendship crazy bus road trips and especially if you loved The Fault In Our Stars My rating system I do use half stars5 I do not use the 5 star Not because a book might not be worthy but because a book is never perfect4 I loved it There weren't too many flaws and I had no trouble getting through it A 4 star rating is the highest rating I've ever given a book3 I enjoyed the book but there we're flaws that made me enjoy it less2 I finished the book but there were too many flaws for me to enjoy it1 I could not finish the book and I probably did not finish it
