Thank YOU for writing the review! And for asking about my next book--I've just turned in a new one that will come out next fall (about this time). It's not a sequel to SAY WHAT YOU WILL but it's similar in spirit--two non-disabled teens are forced to volunteer in a class on relationships and sexuality for young adults with disabilities. Yes it's a love story!(less)

Quite a few people have asked me about it but I want to give it a little time to think about where I'd pick up their story again and what should happen with them. I think it would be a year or two later and quite a bit would happen in between. What do you think should happen?

IN the meantime, I've just turned in another book that will be out next fall that is a little similar in spirit to SAY WHAT YOU WILL. It has romance and some kids with disabilities in it, though none of the same characters as SAY WHAT YOU WILL.
THANKS FOR WRITING AND FOR ASKING!(less)

“This feeling will pass. The fear is real but the danger is not.”
Cammie McGovern, Say What You Will

“I've decided that it's possible to love someone for entirely selfless reasons, for all of their flaws and weaknesses, and still not succeed in having them love you back. It's sad, perhaps, but not tragic, unless you dwell forever in the pursuit of their elusive affections.”
Cammie McGovern, Say What You Will

“Let's don't wait forever for our lives to start. Let's begin them ourselves. Let's be fearless for once and say, we can do this.”
Cammie McGovern, Say What You Will
