Meet A.J. Betts!

Now available in Canada, Zac and Mia tracks the relationship of two ordinary teenagers in exceptional circumstances. They’re both in remission, but cancer has changed everything, and normal isn’t normal anymore. Told in alternating perspectives, it is a funny and tender novel about hope, love, and courage. We thought we’d ask A.J. a few questions to introduce her to Canadian readers!
