Waiting On Wednesday || Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern

Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern
June 3, 2014
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.

I know that this book is technically already out, but I'm late to the party.

Still, I'm really interested to read a book about neuroatypical protagonists. We need more diversity in books and I hope the characters are treated with the respect they deserve. I can't wait to get to know Amy and Matthew.
