I was lucky enough to receive an advanced copy, an "uncorrected proof", of this book and wow. I knew it was going to be good, but I didn't realize that it would force me to run the gamut of emotions!!

Todd leads a pretty uneventful, pretty unremarkable life until a chance meeting at a film festival changes everything. Her name is Amy and she's actually talking to Todd! Not just that, she seems really cool and appears to legitimately enjoy his company. There's only one hang-up - Amy has an inoperable brain aneurism and there's no predicting how much time she has left.

It's an impulsive road trip that will change you just a bit. I laughed like a crazy person (given), I was moved to tears (as in cried like a baby), and I cursed Jeff Strand for keeping me in a constant state of anxiety (oh please don't let her die now!). This is easily one of the best books, the most heartwarming, uplifting, and nail-biting stories I've ever had the privilege to read. Please don't miss out on this one!
