“Extraordinary Means” by Robyn Schneider


For most of his life now, Lane has lived inside his boundaries in an almost “boring” lifestyle. He has excellent grades, a great girlfriend, and is ready to head off to the college of his dreams. It all seems perfect to him, until he is diagnosed with an incurable case of tuberculosis.  Lane’s parents have no choice but to send him away to part hospital, part boarding school, The Latham House. Here, Lane finds a girl from his past who is not at all what he remembers. He is intrigued by the way her and her friends live such adventurous lives at a place with such harsh rules. As he starts to get more used to his life at The Latham House, it’s hard to notice how much sicker everybody around him is getting until it happens to the person he cares about the most. Extraordinary Means by Robyn Schneider provides such a tragic love story that only can be shared through the power of words. The main reason I chose to get through the entire book was because the story line was constantly progressing in the best way possible. Extraordinary Means is a great book for people who have an interest in living with a medical condition and still trying to love in the Young Adult genre.
