“Dealing with your own terminal illness is easier than telling your best friend that you’re in love with her. Just sayin’.”  – Regina Callahan

Reggie Callahan has come to terms with her prognosis of less than a year to live. She’s been dealing with it all summer thanks to blacking out and falling off her horse back home in Wisconsin. Instead of starting her junior year, she’s only back at New York University to tie up loose ends. One of them is breaking the news to her childhood friend, actress and model, Desi St. Clair. For Reggie, telling her that she is sick, and leaving the city is harder than learning you’re going to die.

Until Desi kisses her.

This isn’t a story about gender preference or about living with cancer. Plain and simple, it’s about love and what people are willing to endure to live without regrets and savor every moment.

My Last Season With You

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I always say that I read every type and genre of book, but I honestly wasn't pumped about a F/F story. I cannot express enough how pleasantly surprised I was by this story. It is complete romance.

Reggie and Desi have been best friends since they were little. Reggie always knew she loved Desi more than just as a friend, but she never wanted to rock the boat and chance loosing the most important person in her life. When Reggie finds out that she's dying, it puts life's priorities into focus for both girls. They find out they both have been having the same feelings and have wasted so much time ignoring it.
When you're packing up your life with the possibility of no longer living, what do you fill your suitcase with?

This book is from Reggie's point of view. It follows the ups and downs of her treatments and the budding romance between the girls over several months. My Last Season With You is a beautiful story of true love and life lessons.
"Regina, don't wait. Life is not practice for the real thing; it IS the real thing. We can't wait for the next test result, we can't wait for the next treatment; we can't wait for the next next. Go ahead and give yourself permission to own the moment. Moments are ours for the taking, and we have to grab it whoever we can."

If your looking for a touching, honest, moving book, this is probably for you. There will be tears.

4—4.5 stars
