Send Me a Sign ↠ Mia is always looking for signs A sign that she should get serious with her soccer captain boyfriend A sign that she’ll get the grades to make it into an Ivy league school One sign she didn’t expect to look for was “Will I. 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 suandered 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 dramaSEND ME A SIGN could’ve used Mia’s cancer diagnosis as an opportunity to reflect on people’s belief in superstitions What is the significance of signs to people Why do people often look for signs in the course of their life and how is the significance they place in signs affected in light of a life changing event Instead Mia’s superstitions are a mere gimmick that fails to mask the truth about this book that it is a totally average totally unoriginal “cancer tale” featuring a hopelessly selfish heroine who never realizes the extent of her privilege and concocts wildly immature justifications for the predicaments she gets herself into with her own narrow thinkingThis book wants us to sympathize or empathize with Mia the popular she’s got it all cheerleader whose life unravels from something out of her control—but Mia is no Sam from Lauren Oliver’s Before I Fall or Parker from Courtney Summers’ Cracked Up to Be Sam and Parker’s are bitchy and self centered but we readers could see their flaws and see how they can become better peopleMia however is—oh how can I put this delicately—inexcusably horrifically disappointingly fg selfish I could see the series of decisions she made to end up the way she did but I wasn’t sympathetic at all to her self imposed plight and I didn’t believe at any point in the novel that Mia’s character was redeemableActually part of me sees this as a problem with the form of the fiction novel The very fact that Mia refused to give up the appearance of perfection even when inside she was falling apart was easy for her friends and us readers to see Mia succeeded much less than she thought she did at fooling her friends and of course with this book being written in first person POV we weren’t fooled at all This premature understanding on our part of Mia’s Tragic Flaw however meant that the majority of this overly long novel was just a cycle of the same events and situations over and over again Mia has an opportunity to tell the truth something prevents her from doing so and she gets into even deeper shit It’s painfully repetitive with no point and adds nothing to the story’s character or plot development Most of the story’s major conflicts were set early on in the first few chapters and then the characters don’t arrive at any sort of growth until the last few chapters Maybe it’s just me but I didn’t need to read nearly 400 pages for the MC to learn something I already knew she had to learn by Chapter 3SEND ME A SIGN suffers from a naïve belief that its “deep and sensitive” subject—cancer—will automatically evoke readers’ sympathies and keep readers invested in the story Uh no That’s Fiction Writing 101 even the most intriguing premise can be made into a cure for insomnia by shoddy storytelling What SEND ME A SIGN really is is a basic high school friendshiplove triangle tale with “I’m different because I’m about cancer” written on its figurative forehead There is a maybe maybe not jock love interest; a group of cheerleaders who try and fail to be than just an easily forgotten group of privileged white teenage girls; and oh yes apparently there is some dude named Gyver who’s supposedly the love interest but kind of just flits in and out of the pages and conveniently forgives Mia for her appallingly selfish behavior because he’s been in love with her his whole life Like we haven’t read that before Honestly if Gyver were half the guy this story wants him to be he would have never put up with so much of Mia’s crap It’s pure wish fulfillment is Gyver And that is how this book’s romance failed for me as well adding yet another black mark against it if you didn’t do the cancer storyline well couldn’t you at least have done the romance a little betterThe following uote which appears at 77% in my e galley kind of sums up all of what’s wrong with this book for meCancer had cost so much friendships grades cheerleading my whole sense of who I was I needed to know would I beat this and have time to fix thingsNo Mia your cancer didn’t ruin your life Your self centered personality did And this book isn’t a cancer book it’s about the relationship drama of a protagonist who—by the way—has cancer You get no pity from me read & download å eBook or Kindle ePUB à Tiffany Schmidt

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 itFull reviewAll 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 friends came across with the same kind of bratty ualities either that or they were too perfect This book wasn't as potent as I think it aimed to be with meandering passages and feeling so overly long that after a point I just had a difficult time caring one way or the otherThat said this book is one with a central focus on revealing Mia's diagnosis with cancer to her friends family people around her But Mia's characters was extremely self absorbed and I personally found it hard to sympathize with her as well as found the relationships in the novel to be a bit contrived and outside the point of reality I'm not going so far as to say the narrative was pretentious because it does depict the reality of Mia going through procedure after procedure to fight against her diagnosis and also her helplessness and isolation through it all The high school aspectsfocus were a bit pretentious though at least with the constant media dropping which shows it age in some respects I understand having some music movie TV and other media references here and there but in this for me it was too much without necessarily having that much intimacyI don't judge Mia for not wanting to tell her friends about the diagnosis I can understand that and the reluctance I justcouldn't wrap my head around the fact that she was so self centered most of the time Her friend Guyver is the only person she tells anything about the diagnosis though she keeps that relationship under wraps from her friends as well I found that I couldn't really connect to the other characters for the fact that they were all stereotypical cookie cutter without much flesh Not to mention HIGHLY judgmental And Mia's parents don't really feel that realistic either On one hand I understood Mia's mother's denial but on the other hand for me it didn't resonate as realisticThings hit the fan when Mia who takes far longer than the narrative could adeuately support reveals her diagnosis not necessarily by choice in some measures I wasn't surprised at the fallout but I didn't take it to be Mia's cancer diagnosis to be the cause but rather Mia's neglect and denial as the narrative went onCoupled with the meandering love triangle and taxing drama after a point I was just reading to see what happened in the end I didn't care about it I didn't feel it hit home with any kind of palpable resonation or changes Mia was not the kind of protagonist whom you could see for flaws and redemption the way you could for the protagonists of Lauren Oliver's If I Fall or even Courtney Summers' Cracked Up to Be I didn't feel the intimacy in the perspective it just felt like one long slog that could've been significantly edited down and had potency and potentialIn the end not one of the best books on its subject matter I've picked up I think it had some moments that were sweet and realistic but it was drowned out by the meandering plot and underdeveloped unlikable charactersOverall score 155 starsNote I received this as an ARC from NetGalley from the publisher Walker Childrens
