Book Review: Amy & Matthew A Love Story By Cammie McGovern

Name: Amy & Matthew a love story 
Author: Cammie McGovern
UK release date: 27 March 2014
Summary: Amy is unflinchingly honest about her limitations. Born with cerebral palsy, she can’t walk or talk without help. But trapped inside this uncooperative body lies a brilliant mind and a luminous spirit – a girl capable of truly loving and worthy of being loved in return. Matthew has his own set of challenges – a mind consumed by unwanted repeated thoughts, obsessive rituals and a crippling fear that he can't explain. But underneath all of the anxiety lies a deep seed of hope for someone to come along who believes in him… This is the story of Amy and Matthew. It may not be a fairy tale romance or set in an imagined world far from our own. But the love they share is real. And yes, there's magic in it

Review: I'm not a Huge contemporary fan. I like books that are far away from the truth as possible. But when I read the summary of this book I felt a huge draw to it, and I am so glad I read it.
Literally something I've never ever read about, never would think of reading. A girl with Cerebral palsy and a boy with OCD. Sounds like a disaster love story yes? In some ways, but in others an amazing tear jerker.

I loved the writing style in this book. A lot of inner monologue which was so refreshing. Cammies writing is very clever and addicting. I loved the characters. Amy, the girl seventeen year old with Cerebral palsy trying to get through high school. And Matthew who's OCD is effecting his life pretty badly. I found these characters so refreshing to read. Their not perfect they have issues like real people. They come together to help each other and end up falling in love in the loveliest way ever. 

Cammie deals with cerebral palsy beautifully in this book. Its descriptive but no to much to take away from the love story. I feel like shes defiantly done her research or has experienced cerebral palsy in her life. 

This book felt really real. It brought out emotions I never thought I could feel. That little pain in your chest when something is just so emotional literally happened every other page. It's just an all around epic love story not about the generic hot guy and non popular girl in school, this is so much better.

A warm, magnificent and delicate love story that will break your heart and stitch it back together again.

Great write-up! Writing is a talent, and it must not be wasted. As with everything that we had been entrusted, we should

let it grow and share it with the world.> life long
