Zac & Mia is about a girl and a boy who met at a hospital when the girl named Mia comes in with cancer in the room next to a guy named Zac who has Leukemia.

I read the Fault of the Stars by John Green two years ago I believe, and while I enjoyed it I wasn’t a huge fan of it. But this one really blew me away! I got so absorbed with the characters and the plot, and the writing was really beautiful!

This book was told in alternating POV’s between Zac and Mia. Zac was the more calmer out of the two and I really adored him! I felt he was such a good guy, and his character was so positive in hard times of this life, as well as very caring towards people. Especially Mia. I loved his interactions with her throughout this book.

Mia was such a complex character as well. She was such a teenage girl, it was so great to see that. I feel like sometimes authors like to make girls in that situation these perfect people and sometimes they aren’t. They should be shown at times as human beings, girls with feelings and insecurities. I loved seeing that about Mia. She felt real to me, like I could relate to her. 

Overall this story was so sweet, I loved everything about it. The ending just filled me with so much love! And made me want more so I can see what happens next! I highly recommend this book to anyone! You’ll fall in love! 

Let me know in the comments if you’ve read this book, as well as your thoughts on it! I’d really like to know!
