Never Eighteen by Megan Bostic

Austin Parker is never going to see his eighteenth birthday. At the rate he’s going, he probably won’t even see the end of the year. But in the short time he has left there’s one thing he can do: He can try to help the people he loves live—even though he never will.

It’s probably hopeless. But he has to try.

  1. This book was a really sweet, hopeful story of a teen suffering from cancer. What I really enjoyed about it was that it only focused a little bit on the cancer at the very end of the story. The focus was more on how to live your life to the fullest, which was a nice break from the normal. However, it wasn’t memorable enough to be a Printz contender, but I would reccommend this book to people as a feel-good read.
