    I learned so much as I read this book Suzie s relationship with Matt is adorable Not only did I enjoy a sweet love story, but I learned about a mysterious illness that I had never heard of before All the symptoms of the young woman made me want to read on to find out what she had What could this illness be Another tidbit about this story is that the author knows firsthand about this illness so she was able to describe it perfectly That was not all that I learn...

    This well crafted novel is layered with several interesting facets The story of the local swim team, Susie and Matt s evolving love story, and the deviation of Lyme disease.Not only is it an interesting concept, there is a great deal of information in this novel of which the general audience is not aware Susie s health issues have taken over every aspect of her life, and she s willing to give up a lucrative care...
