THE GIRL NEXT DOOR Book Review and Giveaway
ABOUT THE GIRL NEXT DOOR
eBook Publication Date: May 24, 2013
Two teens are forced to make some very grown-up decisions when one of them is diagnosed with terminal cancer, twisting them into an unpredictable nightmare. Best friends since toddlerhood, Samantha and Jesse grapple with the realization that they are actually in love. What now? Beautifully written while handling a very heavy topic, Castrovilla addresses the universal question: In a world where the worst can strike at any time, how can we ever feel safe?
The Girl Next Door: Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble | iTunes
Samantha and Jesse have been best friends for about 15 years when Jesse is diagnosed with cancer and their lives change. Samantha wants to be with Jesse all the time and soon they both realize that they are in love. Jesse and Samantha deal with his cancer in their own way but they do it together. This story is very sweet and romantic and very very emotional. The story is sad but beautiful at the same time. I loved this book so much and I'm sure most people will also love this book especially because we all know someone in our lives who has or has had cancer.

The AVM Foundation Mission:

We found that Anthony's age group of 18 plus, doesn't have the emotional or financial support that other age groups do. We are also aware of the unique situations that this age group faces and want to help those adolescents and their families.
