Amy & Matthew – a love story – Cammie McGovern


Amy and Matthew are two teenagers that not only have to deal with the usual trials and tribulations of adolescence, but also cerebral palsy (her) and obsessive compulsive disorder (him). Right from the start, you will completely fall in love with Amy and her cheerful determination to make friends by hiring schoolmates to be her helpers. Several students sign up, sometimes just to improve their school credits, but Matthew and Amy soon realise they have a bond which develops into more than a friendship.

The portrayal of Amy’s cerebral palsy is expertly drawn. But the love story, which is contemporary and fresh, is what makes the book so compelling. And the ending is satisfying without being a teen love story cliché.
