Winner of the 2012 Australian Text Prize“When I was little I believed in Jesus and Santa, spontaneous combustion, and the Loch Ness monster. Now I believe in science, statistics, and antibiotics.” So says seventeen-year-old Zac Meier during a long, grueling leukemia treatment in Perth, Australia. A loud blast of Lady Gaga alerts him to the presence of Mia, the angry, not-at-all-stoic cancer patient in the room next door. Once released, the two near-strangers can’t forget each other, even as they desperately try to resume normal lives. The story of their mysterious connection drives this unflinchingly tough, tender novel told in two voices.

But, judging by some of the comments on goodreads, I think that pitch may harm what for ...

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy in exchange for an honest review! I first came across Zac and Mia via the Buzz Books. The first chapter was very promising indeed, and I always have a soft spot for Australian authors (I don't know why). Zac and Mia meet th...

If only we all were healthy and illnesses were cured once and for all. Think of how our world would function and how everyone’s lives would be. Get sick and could you take a pill and cured. Get hurt and the doctor’s could restore your health. As I read Zac and Mia, I thought about this world as thes...

5.0 Book Review ~ Zac and Mia by A.J. Betts
WOW…just WOW! It was so easy to get wrapped up in this story and not want to put it down until I finished it. I absolutely LOVED Zac and Mia! Some readers are comparing this to The Fault in Our Stars, but really, this book stands on its own. Yes, it is about cancer and yes it is about two teenag...
