Synopsis

Extraordinary Means by Robyn Schneider

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. When he's sent to Latham House, a boarding school for sick teens, Lane thinks his life may as well be over. But when he meets Sadie and her friends - a group of eccentric troublemakers - he realises that maybe getting sick is just the beginning. That illness doesn't have to define you, and that falling in love is its own cure. Robyn Schneider's Extraordinary Means is a heart-wrenching yet ultimately hopeful about true friendships, ill-fated love and the rare miracle of second chances. Praise for Extraordinary Means 'This captivating book about life, death, fear, and second chances will fly off the shelves' VOYA 'Schneider's subtlety, combined with themes about learning to live life fully, makes this an easy recommendation for those seeking titles similar in premise to John Green's The Fault in Our Stars' School Library Journal 'The perfect read-next for fans of the sick-lit trend and readers looking for a tear-stained romance' Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books 'Fans of John Green's blockbuster The Fault in Our Stars who are eager for more of that kind of story will likely be satisfied.'
