Zac and Mia

A. J. Betts

The Fault in Our Stars meets Eleanor and Park in this tough and tender award-winning Australian import. After a recurrence of his leukemia, Zac, 17, is recuperating from a bone-marrow transplant when a loud blast of Lady Gaga alerts him to the presence of Mia, the angry cancer patient in the room next door. They begin to correspond on Facebook but then Mia disappears from Zac's life only to resurface months later with bad news: her leg has been amputated. The two finally reunite and despite their differences, develop a friendship and learn to see beyond their own sickness and circumstances.
