The Fault in Our Stars meets Go Ask Alice in this dramatic romance about a teenage girl who survives a terminal cancer diagnosis, only to get trapped in the deadly spiral of addiction. Fans of Gayle Forman and Sara Zarr will be swept away by this gritty romance, the first in a duology.
Evie is living on borrowed time. She was diagnosed with terminal cancer several months ago and told that by now she’d be dead. Evie is grateful for every extra day she gets, but she knows that soon this disease will kill her. Until, miraculously, she may have a second chance to live.
All Evie had wanted was her life back, but now that she has it, she feels like there’s no place for her in it—at least, not for the girl she is now. Her friends and her parents still see her as Cancer Girl, and her boyfriend’s constant, doting attention is suddenly nothing short of suffocating.
Then Evie meets Marcus. She knows that he’s trouble, but she can’t help falling for him. Being near him makes her feel truly, fully alive. It’s better than a drug. His kiss makes her feel invincible—but she may be at the beginning of the biggest free fall of her life.

It was such a good experience because is so real the story it makes you fall in love with life
Raw & emotional
Received a copy from the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.
Wow. INVINCIBLE by Amy Reed is a raw, emotional look at terminal illness, the road to recovery, and the dangers of substance abuse. Reed’s writing style is fascinating. I love the way the style changes based on the emotional state of the narrator. The characters felt very real. This isn’t your typical YA teen romance. Don’t be expecting some swoon-worthy romance or an easy read. Definitely held my attention to the very end. Looking forward to the next book in the series.
