Mia Moore has spent her life searching for signs. A sign she'll fall in love. A sign she'll make it into a highly ranked university. A sign that the summer before senior year will be the best one ever. But when Mia is diagnosed with an aggressive form of leukemia, the only sign she wants to see is that she will survive cancer. Until she's better-meaning no throwing up, no hospital stays, and definitely no wig-Mia doesn't want anyone to know she's sick. And she certainly doesn't want to feel more than friendship for the one person who does know what she's going through, her best friend, Gyver. But the sicker Mia gets, the more she realizes that not even the clearest signs offer perfect answers, and in order to discover what will happen in her life, she will have to find the courage to live it.

TIFFANY SCHMIDT lives in Pennsylvania with her saintly husband, impish twin boys, and a pair of mischievous puggles. She's not at all superstitious . . . at least that's what she tells herself every Friday the 13th. Send Me a Sign is her first novel.
Seventeen-year-old Mia Moore believes in signs, and she makes decisions based on her daily horoscope, tarot cards, and even a Magic 8 Ball. Schmidt’s debut hinges on a doozy of a decision: Should Mia tell her friends she has been diagnosed with cancer? When all signs point to no, Mia leads her friends to believe she is in Connecticut visiting her grandparents instead of at the hospital. The one exception is her longtime neighbor, Gyver (as in MacGyver), who is right there with her through her first round of chemotherapy. Mia manages to deflect questions about her shrinking frame and thinning hair, as well as lengthy absences from school—perhaps a little longer than is believable. Eventually readers will wonder why, oh why, can’t her friends puzzle it out? The novel feels overly long, but it heats up midway through as friendships are called into question, parental nerves start to fray, and a love triangle blooms. Girls who gravitate toward problem novels, and enjoy stories of romance and complex female friendships, will stick by Mia’s side. Grades 8-12. --Ann Kelley
