Lane Sullivan has always been part of the popular crowd, but after he gets sick, everything changes. Partway through his senior year, Lane is sent to Latham House, an open air boarding school for teens suffering from an incurable strain of tuberculosis. There, Lane encounters a girl from his former high school, Hannah Atwater. Instead of the shy loner he remembers, Hannah has transformed. At Latham, she is sarcastic, fearless, and utterly compelling. Her friends, a group of nerdy intellectuals, break the rules and execute elaborate schemes. And after Lane becomes one of them, Hannah shows him their secrets: an old office where they drink wine and read poetry, a way to disable the med sensors they must wear at all times, a secret cave in the woods. Lane and Hannah begin to fall in love, and a cure is announced, which will be available in a few short weeks. But when Hannah starts to fall sicker, it becomes clear that she won't live long enough for the cure. There is one last hope, though: a painful and risky treatment that doctors advise against. A darkly funny story about true friendships, doomed love, and the rare miracle of second chances.
