“Dealing with your own terminal illness is easier than telling your best friend that you’re in love with her. Just sayin’.”  – Regina Callahan

Reggie Callahan has come to terms with her prognosis of less than a year to live. She’s been dealing with it all summer thanks to blacking out and falling off her horse back home in Wisconsin. Instead of starting her junior year, she’s only back at New York University to tie up loose ends. One of them is breaking the news to her childhood friend, actress and model, Desi St. Clair. For Reggie, telling her that she is sick, and leaving the city is harder than learning you’re going to die.

Until Desi kisses her.

This isn’t a story about gender preference or about living with cancer. Plain and simple, it’s about love and what people are willing to endure to live without regrets and savor every moment.

Portion of all sales will go to Free2Luv, a non-profit charity that supports anti-bullying & the freedom of expression.

My Thoughts:

"Life is not practice for the real thing; it IS the real thing. We can’t wait for the next test result, we can’t wait for the next treatment; we can’t wait for the next next. Go ahead and give yourself permission to own the moment. Moments are ours for the taking, and we have to grab it whenever we can. Make every moment, and make it count. Love like you have no tomorrow."

This book had a wonderful message about not wasting time and living your life for NOW!!
No more putting things off for tomorrow, next week, next month or next year. This book is about living in the NOW and facing life's hurdles head end no matter how hard and what the outcome will be. This story moved me to tears and make me think hard. Life is short so go after what you want!! I know some people don't like same sex couples but there was way more to the story. This story also deal with cancer and it's ugly, crippling effects that it has on a person and their loved ones. I encourage everyone to read this story and look deep within yourself and you will get a wonderful message.
