Teenager Cason Martin is the youngest ballerina in the Atlanta Ballet Conservatory. She never really had a choice of whether she learned to dance or not. Her mother, the conservatory's artistic director, has made all the decisions in Cason's life. But that's about to change. Cason has been hiding an injury, and it's much worse than anyone imagines.

Davis Channing understands all too well what it's like to give up control of your life. He's survived cancer, but his drug addiction nearly killed him. Now he's been sober for seven months and enjoying his community service at the hospital. But just when he thinks he's got it together, Davis's ex-girlfriend, who is still battling her addiction, barrels back into his life.

Cason and Davis are not friends. But, as their worlds collide, they will start to depend on one another. Can they both be brave enough to beat the odds?

"Heartbreaking, beautiful, and ultimately hopeful." - Foreword Reviews, starred review

"Cancer happened while prima ballerina Cason was busy making other plans; cancer survivor and recovering addict Davis hangs onto his hard-won sobriety and their deepening friendship. While their peers stretch their wings and aim for the future, these teens learn earlier than most that today is all we have - and that there can be a bracing power to this discovery. The debut author, a cancer survivor and amputee, covers challenging physical and emotional terrain in compelling detail with compassionate insight and strong storytelling skills." - Kirkus Reviews

"A solid addition to YA shelves and a next read for fans of John Green's The Fault in Our Stars." - School Library Journal
