“Say What You Will” by Cammie McGovern, is a teen romance novel that gets you thinking that life isn’t always good and dandy for everyone. Amy Van Dorn is a teenage girl with some disabilities; she can’t talk and she can’t walk by herself. Amy’s parents did not want Amy to be lonely during her last year of high school. She also has to use a talking computer to communicate. However no one wanted to wait for her to finish typing. This made it very difficult for her to make friends, so Amy’s parents hired peer helpers to be her friends. Her peer helpers; Chloe, Sanjay, Sarah, and Matthew, all come to realize that Amy is actually really funny, smart, and easy to talk to.

Amy had one of her helpers each day, but she was most excited about Matthew. Matthew is just a regular kid with an anxiety disorder, but Amy still likes him as more than a friend. Amy and her peer helpers take many exciting journeys throughout her senior year. They grow closer as friends and keep in touch through college.

I really enjoyed reading this book, however there were some older age appropriate words and scenes. All in all though it was one of those stories that keep you up all night reading. I would recommend this book for ages 12+ because of mature language and scenes. This novel was a really easy and fun to read
