The first year of college is supposed to be about parties, parties, and getting the hell out of Texas. Instead, Milcah Daniels is spending her eighteenth year in and out of Houston's hospitals. Her hair is falling out, they�ve cut off her boobs, and if she makes it to nineteen, she�ll consider it a personal miracle.
Breast cancer really has a way of messing with a girl�s social calendar.
When Milcah�s temporarily discharged from the hospital, she�s determined to get a tattoo for every medical procedure she�s had. Her quest leads her to Skin Stories, a new tattoo parlor a block from her apartment. And to it�s infuriatingly sexy artist, Callum Scott.
Callum is everything Milcah wants, and everything she shouldn�t have now. A new relationship when the official prognosis is one to five years is a terrible idea. But Callum doesn�t know about the breast cancer, and Milcah�s not running to tell him.
But when the doctor says things are actually looking positive, her entire life turns upside down. How is she supposed to start living again when she�s finally learned to accept her death?

I don't even know where to begin. I absolutely LOVED this book so much. Milcah is this funny, beautiful, sassy, sarcastic, sometimes mean & sometimes morbid woman who has gone to hell and back from the age of 17. Two years of her life have been spent thinking she could die at any moment. Cancer is a devastating disease in itself but the side effects of it are more than anyone should ever have to endure. Callum is a gorgeous, sexy, kind, considerate, caring, talented man who knows how to look beyond the disease thats taken over Milcah's body & love deeply with his whole heart. The chemistry between these two is off the charts amazing. I cannot describe how much I loved this book. I extremely recommend this book to everyone. I laughed, I cried so hard my heart literally ached. At times I was so mad I was actually screaming at my nook. Lol. And I loved every minute of it. I didn't want it to end.
Basically, this was adorable. Milcah’s voice is fantastic. It’s absolutely perfect for NA, full of snark that made me snicker on more than one occasion and yet completely honest and real. Her thoughts and attitudes aren’t always pretty, and she isn’t even always a perfectly likable character (in fact, she was kind of infuriating several times), but I honestly didn’t mind because her worldview was so interesting and her voice made everything super fun to read. Then there’s Callum. Callum has jumped onto my list of favorite book boyfriends. He’s sexy as hell (I mean, hello gorgeous tattoo artist), an also adorable, and also thoughtful and basically I loved him from the start and didn’t stop loving him ever. Overall, ONLY THE GOOD DIE YOUNG is a fantastic example of NA fiction and one that I’ll be recommending basically forever for anyone curious about the genre. So go read it.
