Ethan Wright is just like any other high school kid that is one day lucky enough to meet the girl of his dreams. Throughout the course of high school the young couple learn to cope with incredibly difficult odds to discover all that matters.
This book is about Ethan, who falls in love with Amanda, a girl who has been diagnosed with Leukemia. It tells about their life that, at some points, are filled with happiness while others filled with despair. All That Matters gives you a view on how cancer can affect your body and the people around you.
All That Matters is somewhere between good and okay. What kept me from giving it 3 stars (good) is that All That Matters progresses too fast, the author tells rather than shows (most of the time), and that it didn't catch my interested for the first half of the book.
You could learn a great deal about life and love from this. It has realistic and somewhat memorable characters. All That Matters raises good questions like "Will you be going through this for the person you love, even if they might not feel the same way?"
(Spoiler Alert) I'm surprised Amanda stayed with Ethan as long as she did. I'm surprised that she even broke up with him after all they been through.
