RADIATE by Marley Gibson

Today on the blog I'm featuring a book that touches on an amazing subject and is such a wonderful addition to the world of young adult literature today.

RADIATE by Marley Gibson (Graphia/HMH, April 3, 2012)

From Amazon:

Hayley Matthews is determined to be the best cheerleader she can. She works hard and pushes herself 110% all the time. Then Hayley finds a lump on her leg. The diagnosis is cancer. The prognosis is unclear. She could lose her leg. Or maybe her life. At first Haley is scared, terrified. In an instant, everything she’s worked for seems out of reach. But Haley is strong. She’s going to fight this disease. She will not let it take her life or her dreams.

This book is racking up some amazing reviews including:

"RADIATE is a word that aptly describes this novel. I found myself caught in the tight grip of hope and determination. A story as extraordinary and as powerful as this one will affect the reader long after the book is finished, especially after knowing the source of the author's inspiration." - Colleen Houck, NYT Bestselling Author

"RADIATE shows readers that the power of positive thinking can change lives!" - Simone Elkeles, NYT Bestselling Author

"I have never read a writer with a voice as characteristic and consistent! I love it!" - Jennifer Echols, author of Going Too Far and Forget You

I hope you'll help spread the word and check out the book!
