I have had a couple of readers say that they would have loved to hear Jonah's POV as well as April's. While that is a fascinating idea, I don't have plans to write that viewpoint at this time. There are several wonderful novels told from the POV of a person with schizophrenia (CHALLENGER DEEP by Neal Shusterman just won the National Book Award) and I'm not sure an additional POV would add much to this story. Also I'm concerned it would feel a tad repetitive. As for a sequel, I wanted to leave the novel hopeful and open-ended. If you see April and Jonah finding each other again, there is certainly room for that! And if you see them going their separate ways, that's fine too. I tend to the happier epilogue in my imagination, but I can see both endings. Thanks again for writing to me!(less)

It's called Your Voice is All I Hear and is about a teenage girl whose first boyfriend is diagnosed with schizophrenia. I hope you can check it out! Thanks for writing to me! (less)

“I really miss the thought of you. I miss the hope that my future could've been a brilliant one–that you might have made it so. But I don't regret the dream even if it's gone now. And I want to thank you for inspiring it.”
Leah Scheier, Secret Letters

“You're not like a lot of your classmates. Friendships mean more to you. And so will your relationships. I'm not worried about the speed. I'm worried about the intensity... I actually know you, believe it or not. You're the type that can get completely swept away. And you'll stay loyal to the people you love, no matter what. Loyalty isn't a bad thing, but it is when you're fifteen and you have no experience.”
Leah Scheier, Your Voice Is All I Hear

“His gaze travelled down me, then zipped back to my face. "Sorry."
"Focus, Rafe."
"I am. Just on the wrong thing.”
Kelley Armstrong, The Calling

“But I will say this: When the scientists of the future show up at my house with robot eyes and they tell me to try them on, I will tell the scientists to screw off, because I do not want to see a world without him.”
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

“I wanted to tell the book thief many things, about beauty and brutality. But what could I tell her about those things that she didn't already know? I wanted to explain that I am constantly overestimating and underestimating the human race-that rarely do I ever simply estimate it. I wanted to ask her how the same thing could be so ugly and so glorious, and its words and stories so damning and brilliant.”
Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

“Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself.”
John Green

“Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.”
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars
