Everybody likes Nathan Hawthorne. But he’s looking for more. More life, more love, more reasons to live. After the sudden death of his brother, Nate moves to New Orleans, hoping a fresh start will bring him clarity. His easy smile and California charm wins him the attention of every girl at his new school. Too bad he only has eyes for Camille.
Camille LaRue is a nobody, and she likes it that way. Her life has always been predictable. She has cancer. She’s terminal. She’s going to die. Cami can’t change her fate. The only thing she can control is how she’ll say goodbye. And that’s why she doesn’t have time for Nate, no matter how much her heart tells her otherwise.
When Nate says “Hello” to Camille, everything changes with one simple word. But how can she risk her heart when she only has a few measured heartbeats left? Luckily for Camille, Nate knows the best things in life are worth fighting for. He brings chaos into her orderly life, showing her just how much life she still has left to live.
