Hayboo05: Dead On My Feet by Cesca Marie

Author's Summary: Recovering from a serious illness, Edward knows what it is to be invisible but obvious to everyone around him. Bella, who has watched a loved one die of protracted illness, understands the tightrope-act of life in an unpredictable body. Alienated by his disease, Edward finds a friend in Forks' newest resident. The only problem is that she sees far more than anyone else does – including the things he doesn't want seen.

Why hayboo05 loves it:

Dead On My Feet owned me from the very first chapter. Between the curiosity you have about Edward's illness and the dry and somewhat morbid humor, it's hard to stop reading until you run out of chapters!

Bella is also an puzzle that has pieces missing all over the place. The rate at which you find the pieces of both puzzles is realistic though. At first glance you might think Bella is too hard on Edward but when you read further into the story you see that it's what Edward needs to become a whole person again. To be healthy in every way.

I also really enjoy Alice and Emmett in this story. Alice is younger but she's been through so much right along with Edward that at times, you forget that she's only fifteen. That is until Edward says something insensitive...then you're quickly reminded that Alice is a fragile teen. Emmett brings a lot of humor to this story as usual. He's the protective big brother that he does so well! It's actually quite funny when Em and Edward try and keep Alice from growing up..

I really like that it's not always Edward and Bella together, though, that is the best part. You get to see them separate and then you see how they change when they're together. The contrast is quite different and it just sets in stone that they are exactly what the other needs.

The most interesting part of this story is all the stuff you learn about cancer and it's effects. Not only on the person that has/had it but his or her family as well. You get to see it from both sides of the road and that is part of the intrigue. You want to learn more about every single aspect of this story.

I could seriously spend all day talking about why I love Cancerward is his Bella but instead...why don't you go read it for yourself! You won't regret it!!
