    1. I am not a fan of cancer books, and neither is Mia So when she s diagnosed with leukemia, she hides it She doesn t want to be cancer girl She wants to get through that first round of chemo then be her normal, happy, perfectionist self, surrounded by the girls she s been friends with and cheerleaders with forever But it s not that easy and can t be that easy She s told one person her diagnosis Gyver, the boy who has been her best friend and neighbor since the beginning of time The boy who has alw [...]


    2. Initial reaction This is probably one of the few books on its subject matter that, generally, I was unimpressed with the presentation for I don t know I ll have to think over it with the possibility of upping my rating, but I wasn t taken with it.Full review All right, I ll bite in discussing this book with a short and sweet review I didn t like Send Me A Sign very much at all There were very few redeeming factors about it and the protagonist came across to me as a self centered brat whose frien [...]


    3. I approached SEND ME A SIGN with the knowledge that many readers had high expectations for this book, though I didn t really have any myself What I got out of my reading experience was that this debut novel squandered a good opportunity to discuss cancer in eye opening ways and opted instead to be a perfectly, irritatingly run of the mill YA contemporary novel about high school relationship dramaND ME A SIGN could ve used Mia s cancer diagnosis as an opportunity to reflect on people s belief in [...]


    4. I really, really enjoyed this book and I generally avoid 1 cancer books and 2 books about popular girls especially from new to me authors this is a debut And Send Me a Sign has both But, it was incredibly fresh and an emotional novel that surprised me Mia is a super popular cheerleader with a perfect life seriously in the first chapter, I was all, I m not sure I can spend 300 pages with a super popular cheerleader, those girls hated me in high school Her friends has the perfect summer before the [...]


    5. Send Me a Sign is a really good book that held my interest Mia, the main character who is diagnosed with leukemia, decides to keep it from her friends This turns out to be a decision that adversely affects her and her friends relationships when they view spoiler find out she didn t share her illness with them The repercussions from that decision angered me to think that people could be so incredibly cruel, even in the face of potential death.Mia is always looking for signs to help her make decis [...]


    6. There s no time wasted, tossing us right into Mia s world, getting to know her wonderful, sort of perfect life Really, her life is as good as it gets for a teenage girl She s got a dedicated group of friends, known as the Calendar Girls each one gets a season, rather than just one measly birthday Summer Girl Mia does great in school, has a good relationship with her parents, and there s the yummy boy that s really into her, Ryan Not to mention, she s got Gyver, the sweet next door neighbor she s [...]


    7. Considering I cried my way through this book, fell in love with The Boy, and my heart is STILL aching in a good wayI think I loved this book ___Final review end Me A Sign is one of those extremely rare books that took me beyond the mere act of reading a story, and actually propelled me into the story itself, until I felt like I was living the events taking place I clicked immediately with Mia who of us hasn t searched for a sign to tell us which direction to go, how to make the right decision My [...]


    8. Let s acknowledge, first things first, that Send Me A Sign is a novel with cancer in it But it is not a Cancer Novel It is a novel about a Person with cancer, not a person with CANCER So those of you who, like me, grew up morbidly fascinated by novels with titles like Time to Die My Love Who Is Dying or Mommy Don t Go And Die Because It Is My Turn To Die Too Young this is not the kind of book you think it is Mia has cancer Mia also has a near perfect GPA, a spot on the cheerleading squad, a trio [...]


    9. I could never resist picking a dandelion gone to seed, and I couldn t resist the beautiful simplicity of the cover of SEND ME A SIGN, either The summer between Mia s junior and senior year is supposed to be the best time of her life, but instead of partying with her cheerleader friends and soccer star boyfriend, Mia ends up in the hospital battling leukemia.But SEND ME A SIGN isn t just a story about cancer it s about fighting for control over your life, about friendships, secrets, omens, letti [...]


    10. It s official, Gyver Russo is my favorite male character ever When this book started out, Mia s life was perfect she had a perfect boyfriend, the best friends, that great grades and popularity That all suddenly changes when Mia gets diagnosed with leukemia As you may know from the synopsis, she decides not to tell anyone except for Gyver, her guy best friend And the story starts from there I loved this book, it was great and my only complaint is that she didn t hook up with Gyver until the end [...]



    11. I really dislike cancer books To me, many of them are too dramatic and incredibly predictable for instance, in some of the books, it seems incredibly obvious that one of the characters will die due to cancer While I have liked a few books that deal with topics of cancer, such as Before I Die and Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, most books in this genre I tend to avoid However, I very much enjoyed reading Send Me a Sign Why is this At a glance, it seems like a typical story about a girl diagnosed [...]


    12. Check out of my reviews at Singing and Reading in the Rain A unique and fresh tale on one girl s struggle through leukemia, Send Me a Sign will have you either sobbing or only lightly crying for the entire plot.Given the fact that I haven t read many cancer centered novels previously, I expected a flurry of emotions and feelings with no other reference Fortunately, Send Me a Sign was just that It was real and heart breaking, watching Mia have to go through endless rounds of chemotherapy and tri [...]


    13. I am always a little hesitant to read books that confront issues like life changing illness because it is so easy to either be completely depressing or preachy However, Send Me A Sign was neither one of those things What I found was a story that was sad, yes, but also funny, romantic, honest and hopeful Tiffany Schmidt s storytelling really brought me into Mia s life and showed me the contrast between before and after I was especially interested in Mia s mother, who will probably annoy and anger [...]


    14. I was worried this would be a Cancer Book I am a bit of a hypochondriac, and I m convinced reading all those Lurlene McDaniel books about dying girls as a teen broke my brain a little But guess what SEND ME A SIGN is awesome It s funny and bittersweet and swoonworthy Mia is far from a tragic heroine she s scared and sad and sometimes she makes bad choices, but they aren t stupid choices I always understood why She s also engaged in a fantastic love triangle one of the best I ve read, honestly Wh [...]


    15. I enjoyed this book but it was exhausting It was really long and felt really long There was a point in the middle where I just hated everyone for a long time Then it came back to goodness The beginning was great There was a lot of tension and drama and sadness and it felt real But then it got really soapy which is interesting for a cancer book I didn t feel like it tried to be lofty Mia buckles under her lies and she takes a big crash But I thought her friends were way too shallow and so was Mia [...]


    16. I had mixed feelings with this book I liked it and i didn t liked it What i didn t like was how Mia couldn t bring her self to tell her friends she has cancer and the suspense of her telling them dragged on too long, it made the story frustrating to read I hated her mom, she just annoyed the shit out of me But one thing i did love about it was the romance friendship between Mia, Gyven and Ryan, i thought it was really adorable on how both of the guys took care of her through the process and stor [...]


    17. Couldn t put the darn thing down Read it in less than 24 hours Cried at least twice but I loved it This book was especially poignant for me because my friend s daughter was recently diagnosed with cancer It helped me get a glimpse into what they re going through with chemo right now I wanted to yell at most of the characters in this book Give her a break She s got cancer but I was happy to see that they worked thru their issues by the end Fantastic writing believable characters A great read


    18. When Mia is diagnosed with leukemia her mom treats her cancer treatments like a trip to a spa A month of chemo, and life will go back to normal But cancer is Mia s new normal And getting used to life with it is nothing like getting your nails done.Make sure to read this one with tissues on hand Mia is such a realistic character I wanted to pray for her Instead I ll send my thoughts to anyone who is currently dealing with cancer I hope we find a cure soon.


    19. Mia Moore is a popular girl at school She has good grades She is on the cheerleading squad The handsome soccer captain is falling in love with her Her mom is very proud of her In her life, she has never really flat out fail at anything But when she is being diagnosed with cancer, Mia does not know how to deal with it Should she share her medical condition with all of her friends at school Can she pretend that nothing bad is going on with her health Can she hide her pain from her parents Can she [...]


    20. Send Me a Sign begins with a teenage girl who discovers news that nearly shatters the life she once knew right before her eyes Cancer is something we all face whether it be from the people around us or in ourselves and we all know it s a tough thing to overcome In Send Me a Sign, Tiffany Schmidt creates a beautiful and refreshing novel that allows us to experience someone literally dealing with life and death and the consequences of secrecy Mia believes in signs Before deciding on any big decisi [...]


    21. Send Me a Sign by Tiffany Schmidt is about a girl who gets diagnosed with Leukemia, and ends up struggling with health and relationship problems She believes that everything is a sign, this helps her make reasonable decisions Send Me a Sign is undoubtedly a book worth reading The suspense grew in some parts of the story, the drama caused unsureness and the wish to continue reading It tells a story about the secrets the main character was willing to keep from people knowing not just because she w [...]


    22. SEND ME A SIGN by Tiffany Schmidt was another of those books that I randomly selected, based only on the cover or the title, without having read any reviews or heard any plot or character descriptions It can be refreshing to start a book without any preconceived ideas, which can be difficult when you read and watch as many reviews as I do, but I was excited to give this one a try when I saw it on NetGalley.Starting with the plot Mia is a high school student who definitely understands what it s l [...]


    23. My Thoughts Wow, what a novel This one was awesome Even though Mia was sick, it was still a thought provoking novel I usually hate cancer novels, who doesn t We hate cancer, it s bad, and hard to read about We are introduced to Mia who believes in horoscopes, lyrics in songs, and mostly everything else that can be told through fortunes or signs Mia is enjoying her summer days with her best friends, when she gets some really bad news Mia has cancer Mia doesn t tell anyone except her parents of co [...]


    24. This book was really sad and adorable and crazy good, and hard for me to read for a few reasons For one, one of my best friends is named Mia and the though of her having to go through what this Mia did broke my heart, another reason was because one of my other really good friends did go through this, and although the experiences were different for Mia and my friend, the thought of what she had to go through breaks my heart It happened while in college and we lived in different places to start wi [...]


    25. Send Me a Sign was such a cute yet shockingly realistic portrait of what one might go through if diagnosed with cancer at such a tender age I expected this novel to read like one of those Lurlene McDaniel books I frequently read when I was twelve, but it s not sappy and overly sad as I had predicted Instead, this book takes a tragic situation and makes it a learning experience, a lesson in love and betrayal.Alienating her friends was probably the worst decision Mia made through this whole battle [...]


    26. This book was simply painful for me to read I was incensed and infuriated all the way through it Mia is a 17 year old girl who finds out the summer before her senior year that she has cancer Intensely advised by her mother, she decides not to tell anyone because she doesn t want their pity Mia has likeable moments but all in all she was as shallow and superficial as the so called friends whom she couldn t trust to be there and support her The parents were ridiculous and pathetic and the absolute [...]


    27. I absolutely loved this book Oh, where to start.ere s so much drama, so many lies, romances, deceit, denial that I have to say this book is one of my favorites this year So what is the sign They are everywhere but they are telling Mia nothing They are the four leaf clovers, the he loves me he loves me not, the Magic Eight Ball, just to name a few Life is going good for Mia the summer of her junior year she s popular, she s smart and she is a cheerleader What Mia didn t expect was her diagnosis o [...]


    28. Personal response I thought the book Send me a Sign was interesting because it described the feelings of a Leukemia patient It described how a mperson feels to learn they have Leukemia during the summer while having fun with their friends It describes the sadness of not being able to swim and enjoy summer.PlotThe book started when the main character, Mia, learned that she had Leukemia at a check up She began looking for signs to see if she would survive She used her friends music as a source for [...]
