Publisher's Summary

John Green's The Fault in Our Stars meets Rainbow Rowell's Eleanor Park in this darkly funny novel from the critically acclaimed author of The Beginning of Everything.

Up until his diagnosis, Lane lived a fairly predictable life. But when he finds himself at a tuberculosis sanatorium called Latham House, he discovers an insular world with paradoxical rules, med sensors, and an eccentric yet utterly compelling confidante named Sadie - and life as Lane knows it will never be the same.

Robyn Schneider's Extraordinary Means is a heart-wrenching yet ultimately hopeful story about the miracles of first love and second chances.

    Story
    "Predictable!"

    I love John Green so was excited to read a book that had been compared to his writing! But this was predictable with teenagers who were way too witty and quick. There were some silly lines... the boyfriend who "couldn't help but hope" that his sick girlfriend would get better... obviously! I finished it and did love her other book but you should pass!

    "Better for teens"

    This is your typical teenage love story. By the description I thought it would be a little more sci-fi or plot-based, but really it is just a teenage love story. But I do think teens would like it.

    "Beautiful"

    Such a beautifully written story. I quickly became attached to the characters and laughed and cried along with them. This is a must read for sure!
