This book is different than all the other Traci Hunter Abramson books I've read, but it's a great read. Maya has an a tumor at the base of her skull that has to be reduced to half its size before the doctors can operate. This isn't the first big challenge she's had in her short 20 years. When she was 13 yrs old she fled her homeland of India to escape an arranged marriage; when she was 16 yrs old her grandmother, who had helped her escape the arranged marriage, died and she was put into a foster home with people who didn't care about her. Despite all this she gets a full ride tennis scholarship to Vanderbilt University. Despite rounds of chemo and radiation the tumor isn't small enough to remove. Maya's only shot is to be accepted into a clinical trial in Washington D.C. She quits school, but she's too sick to work so she has no income, and no place to live while receiving the treatment. Her best friend Kari comes up with an idea but fails to tell her brother, Ben, a major league baseball player, about it. When Ben comes back to D.C. to train in the off-season he's more than a little shocked to find this girl he's only met once before in his apartment. Both of the main characters are very likable people who are genuinely kind. Ben feels the solution he comes up with to solve all of Maya's problems is inspired, if unconventional. Maya is a person who deals with everything life gives her without complaining and wants to take care of her problems by herself without burdening others. This story completely illustrates how serving others helps you to love them. I wish there had been another chapter or a short epilogue that takes place a few months later to catch up with them after Maya's surgery. This is a wonderful heart warming story. Totally clean read with a few chaste kisses near the end.
