"Dessert First is a beautiful novel about breaking and mending, what we lose and how we try to save. Kat's story is moving and bittersweet, and I couldn't put it down." —Ally Condie, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Matched trilogy and Summerlost

Upbeat—that's Kat, the girl in the family who everyone turns to when things get difficult. Especially now, when her beloved younger brother Beep is in his second leukemia relapse, and a bone marrow transplant from Kat may be his only chance.

But Kat's worried that she and her bone marrow may not be up to the job: She can't even complete homework, and she's facing other rejection—lost friendships, a lost spot on the soccer team, and lots of heartache from her crush on her former best friend, Evan. Kat doesn't know if her bone marrow will save Beep, or whether she can save herself, let alone keep her promise to Beep that she'll enjoy life and always eat dessert first.

Dessert First is a funny, moving story about coping, appreciating sweetness, and learning to forgive.
