Hard-charging and irrepressible, eighteen-year-old Amelia Linehan could see a roller derby opponent a mile away — and that's while crouched down, bent over skates, and zooming around a track at the speed of light. What she couldn't see coming, however, was the flare-up of the rare liver disorder she was born with. But now it's the only thing she — and everyone around her — can think about.
With no guarantee of a viable organ transplant, everything Amelia's been sure of — like college plans or the possibility of one day falling in love — has become a huge question mark, threatening to drag her down into a sea of what-ifs she's desperate to avoid. Then a friend from the past shows up. With Will, it's easy to forget about what's lurking between the lightness of their time together. She feels alive when all signs point elsewhere. But with the odds decidedly not in her favor, Amelia knows this feeling can't last forever. After all, what can?

Frank yet empathetic, Malone’s gritty portrayal of interpersonal relations offers readers a telling example of a life-and-death ordeal from the inside out." — Kirkus Reviews,p>
