I can’t imagine a life being isolated from the outside world. I kinda tried though, not checking any social media sites, not going out with friends and not talking to anyone. That’s when I was depressed. But being sick and isolated? I guess that will be the worst and I think I understand why Lane hates it.
Lane has tuberculosis. He has to be locked out in the Latham house where other kids like him are staying. Lane still believes he will be able to get out of the Latham house soonest and he still continue the things he kept doing in the outside world. He keeps studying for his exams until his condition gets a little worse. As days passed by in Latham house, Lane met Sadie, she’s the girl from his childhood. He tried to be part of Sadie’s group until he succeeded. He even win Sadie’s attention. Being in Sadie’s little group, Lane enjoyed his life in the house, he discovered more secrets about Sadie and her friends. But despite of all the enjoyments, their group of friends suddenly crashes down. All of their life turned upside down when things started happening in Latham house.
This book is fun to read but at the same time heart shattering. I like how the story was made, full of hope and challenges but the twist of the story is what made my heart hurts so much. The book is beautiful, the story is promising and the characters are amazing. I enjoyed Lane and Sadie’s story, they’re both fighters for trying to recover from tuberculosis and dreaming about their future.
Sad how things end, but the book is perfect from what it is. I had a book hangover after reading this, I really can’t finish other books so I decided to take a break before reading again. I recommend this book to other readers. It’s really a good one.
PS. this is my first Robyn Schneider book!
