Being touched by men has haunted studious college student, Lacey Shyver, her entire life. That is why she focuses on science rather than boys—rolling in her wheelchair to the beat of astronomy, math, and physics. Until, one simple touch from drummer, Blake Nivey, opens her up to things she never knew existed. Every time Blake’s fingers sweep down her shoulder, she wants mo ...more

Lacey Shyver is what others would call an inspiration, however the way Lacey sees it she is shy, uncomfortable with others, and just biding time day to day. Lacey is in college and she wishes about finding a true love, about not feeling squeamish by someones touch, and about feeling normal.

This is a story about Lacey's four years in college, finding herself, growing strong, and finding heartbreak. You do not get to know Lacey immediately, her story unravels through out the book and I thought t

For Lacey June 9th holds sadness at first a day when the one she loved left her. But is the one that left her with our regard for her heat her true love? Or is the one that left her with a promise of more the one she has to fight for? For Lacey those are just some of the questions that plague her. She struggles with insecurities and a trauma from her past that make it hard for her to move forward. Wheel chair bound she is afraid that all people (guys in particular) only see the chair and not her ...more

As a quadriplegic it's not often that I find a character that realistically depicts the thoughts, emotions, and ups and downs of living in a world not always accessible. With her creation of Lacey I applaud Ms. Goliesh in opening up dialogue when it comes to the definition of beauty, disability, and HEA. The author continually holds up a mirror and it's not always a pretty reflection as the outside world often treats Lacey as a child constantly in need of help or an inspiration not allowed to to ...more

>>>I received this book as an ARC in exchange for an honest review. <<<

June 9th- a book by Emha Goliesh about the struggle of life, but based on a totally different basis.

Lacey, the female protagonist, is having a neuromuscular disease which seems to control her whole life. Whatever she does, the disease always finds a way to influence her life . Even then she still tries to take part in life as much as she can, especially when it comes to her studies. 
Besides, she also has to

June 9th was the date my life crashed all around me, the date where I couldn't live a sane life anymore - a date where I first discovered that love really can make someone crazy, even fall onto the mental institution train. June 9th by Emma Goliesh reminded me of a teen book called Just South of Biloxi, a book where a girl had fallen in love with her best friend. The thoughts though that surrounded love had caused her to look from the outside as a crazy woman. In June 9th we meet Lacey whom is a

This is slightly different from my norm .. a love story of sorts based on Lacey’s experiences as a youngster growing up with the usual insecurities that surround this age group in school/college, but she also has disabilities to take into account.

It’s a story of discovery, love yourself in order for someone to love you. She couldn’t believe that anyone would willingly choose her when there are so many able-bodied people to pick first. Blake seems the ultimate catch, can she believe & trust t

"June 9th was the date my life crashed all around me, the date where I couldn't live a sane life anymore - a date where I first discovered that love really can make someone crazy."

This was a good book. To me, it is a book about strength, struggles, love, and acceptance. I felt many emotions while reading this ranging from happiness, sadness, empathy, and admiration.


Lacey has a medical condition that affects her in many ways. She doesn't want to be touched yet she just wants to feel normal. She

The synopsis marked this book out for me as something different, refreshing - a different point of view for a romance. And it was a different perspective, just not the one I was expecting.

On the whole, the story-telling was well paced, and the side characters colourful and entertaining. The character I struggled to connect with the most was Lacey herself. Although described as a strong individual, I didn't find her to be so. Often in tears, I felt she was naive and needy, almost to the point of

An emotional journey into the life of Lacey and her struggles with her condition. Can a girl that has loved with the looks and the pity of her illness find love?
Blake sees her not just her condition but when doubt and insecurities plague can she see the truth or lose him by failing prey to her own doubt.
A story of growth a story of acceptance a story that will make you cry and bring you joy all at once.
I loved it and embraced her feeling her insecurities and her pain.

Really great book. I loved this story even though it was not your normal book. I think that Lacey's character was great and it was an interesting twist on her story with her disability and what she had gone through. I do have to say I hated how it ended. It was kind of a let down. Other that that I loved the story line and was a good book

Sometimes I love to write. Sometimes I hate to write. Let's just say, it's a love-hate relationship. But at the end of the day, writing is truly magical, and it has become my best friend. It doesn't judge me when I'm frustrated with it. It doesn't yell at me when I'm being honest with it. It doesn't belittle me when I'm emotional with it. It's just there, helping me get through life.

The best thing
