Waiting on Wednesday: Send Me a Sign by Tiffany Schmidt

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine
in which we have the opportunity to let others know about books that we are eagerly waiting for. 

Title: Send Me a Sign by Tiffany Schmidt
Published: Walker Books for Young Readers
Release Date: October 2nd, 2012

Mia’s used to being the perfect teenager: pretty, popular, smart, caring. But that was before she was diagnosed with leukemia. Now, her father has become Captain Cancer Facts and her mother is obsessed with maintaining Mia’s image. Her maybe-more-than-a-friend, Gyver, is judging her decision not to tell the other cheerleaders that she’s sick. Her life’s about to change and she’s terrified by the loss of control. Mia’s always been superstitious, but as her body starts to feel like it belongs less to her and more to the doctors and their needles, she becomes irrationally dependent on horoscopes, fortune cookies, and good luck charms. As chemotherapy replaces cheerleading and platelets replace parties, Mia just wants normal back. But despite searching for clues in everything from songs on the radio to her Magic 8 Ball, her future is coming up 'Outlook not so good'.

Why I want to read it:  First of all I think this is a pretty and refreshing cover.  Second, I have recently read two books related to cancer diagnosis and they were both awesome.  Lastly, I am curious about the take on signs and superstition as a way to cope with a devastating disease.
