Final-year university students Jonah and Ellen face life-threatening together - and discover love. As their love for each other deepens, they embrace intimacy and creativity, courage and honesty, joy and pride.
This novel - John Graham-Pole's third in his trilogy inspired by young people with cancer - evokes compassion, know-how, humour, and hope.
