Year 9, Book 34

34. Zac and Mia by A.J. Betts

Zac and Mia are two Australian teenagers who meet because they have adjoining rooms on the cancer ward of the hospital where they are both being treated. When I first started reading this book I thought it was going to be The Fault in Our Stars all over again, but it really isn’t. Anyone who says that it is obviously can’t get past the fact that both stories are a love story surrounding two teenagers with cancer. Aside from that the stories are extremely different.

I found Mia very unlikeable for most of the book, and I think it was an interesting choice by the author to have a sort of love story surrounding a character who the reader is bound to dislike for most of the book because of her attitude and the stupid decisions she makes. If you liked The Fault in Our Stars, you will probably like this book. I give it a 7 out of 10.
