It comes as a twinge, a signal that
you’ve reached the exact half point of your life…

Flint knows he will die at 16 so he’s never
really tried to live. With 6 weeks left, he returns to his hometown
with his family, determined to go quietly.

Science-obsessed September interns at the world-renowned
Half Life Institute. She has never grieved the death
of her younger sister who “half-lifed” the previous year but she
is determined to find a cure.

Chance brings the two together. A friendship – and then something
more – starts to form. September’s easy warmth gives Flint
permission to enjoy his life, and in turn Flint allows September
to grieve instead of hiding behind smiles and personas.

But time’s running out and Flint hasn’t shared his
secret yet – will their connection prove extraordinary
enough to last beyond those last few weeks, or is their
time together destined to end in heartbreak?

An achingly beautiful romance story from the author of TikTok
bestseller You & Me At the End of the World

Perfect for fans of Adam Silvera, Kathleen Glasgow and Jennifer

A future classic for the Books That Made Me Cry trend


“Brianna Bourne offers us a moving and enthralling story that
reminds us that love lights our way as we all travel in death’s
shadow.” Jeff Zentner, award-winning author
of In the Wild Light and The
Serpent King
