Say What You Will

Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern

a standalone
to be published on March 27, 2014 by HarperTeen
contemporary | romance


John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars meets Rainbow Rowell’s Eleanor & Park in this beautifully written, incredibly honest, and emotionally poignant novel. Cammie McGovern’s insightful young adult debut is a heartfelt and heartbreaking story about how we can all feel lost until we find someone who loves us because of our faults, not in spite of them.

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.



1. The premise sounds awesome. It sounds like it’ll be a tearjerker, really, which I would absolutely love. My favorite books are the ones that make me cry and get all the feels, so this one looks really good. And I may not be a fan of illness books, but I think the illnesses used here are kind of unique for a YA contemporary (there’re too many books with cancer now) and I’d love to read about them!

2. The new cover is adorable! The typography, the colors and everything look good together and I just want this on my shelf! But I think this version’s only available in ebook format. You can view the other version here.

  1. This one is new to me but I totally agree with you. The cover is so cute and the idea sounds really good. Plus it’s standalone :) Thanks for sharing and stopping by :)


  2. I saw this on Edelweiss the other day and only just stopped myself from requesting it. That cover is really beautiful! I love it. And I think I want to read it but am not sure yet. Mainly because I am scared of the feels.


  3. I agree with you on both points! I LOVE the cover, simple yet artistic. And yes, I’ve never read the disorder and illness that is tackled on here in any other YA book, especially cerebral palsy. I’m very intrigued on how these two will connect!


  4. This book looks like it’ll manage to make me cry buckets. Alike you I’m not really the biggest fan of illness books. However the relationship described between the characters seems very genuine and something I could get behind. I also love the cover, I think i prefer the ebook version to the other version haha.


  5. I absolutely love that cover! But I confess, I’m a bit nervous about comparing a book to John Green AND Rainbow Rowell. *shakes nervously* That’s a pretty big thing to live up to.


  6. This novel definitely looks so adorable!! I love the sound of the premise and the cover is so CUTE!! xD But like Cait pointed out, living up to John Green and Rainbow Rwell would probably be pretty difficult :P
    Thanks for sharing, Aimee!! :3
    P.S. Thanks so much for stopping by Constellation Chronicles! :D I’m so sorry I didn’t manage to stop by your adorable blog earlier ><


  7. I completely forgot the premise of this but I’ve wanted to read it since watching the ARC party episode at Tea Time when they unboxed this! Was completely smitten by the cover haha and I’m so sad they changed it :( But this one looks good too!


What's the juice? Spill!
