Product description

Review

I absolutely devoured this novel, which took me from laughter to tears in the turn of a page. From its brilliant premise to its wonderful ending, it was gripping, romantic and thought-provoking as it showed how two people can fall for each other without ever being able to hold each other's hand. I absolutely loved it. - Katie Marsh author of A LIFE WITHOUT YOU

A touching and often comedic tale of fitting in. - Prima

One of the most thought-provoking love stories of the year - Real Simple

Oakley's sophomore novel is a treat... Fans of Jojo Moyes and rom-coms set within the stacks of libraries will rejoice. - Booklist

It is easy to get lost in this vividly told story with characters and a fictional malady that are utterly believable. Oakley's second novel should build on the author's popularity and continue comparisons to popular authors such as Jojo Moyes. - Library Journal

Oakley masterfully creates a high-stakes story that still feels solidly real. All of her characters are well-rounded and charming, especially Jubilee. Readers will cheer each time she takes a risk and delight in her triumphs. A romantic, sweet story about taking chances and living life fully. - Kirkus Reviews

It's so rare these days to find an utterly original heroine like Jubilee - one who is bravely living an almost unimaginable life. Gripping, raw, and moving, this is one of my favourite novels of the year. - Sarah Pekkanen, bestselling author of SKIPPING A BEAT and THE OPPOSITE OF ME

A witty, inventive, and bittersweet story of a reclusive young woman forced to venture into the world where complex medical issues become tangled with longings of the heart. - Beth Hoffman, New York Times bestselling author of SAVING CEECEE HONEYCUTT and LOOKING FOR ME

A funny, moving and tear-jerking love story. - The Sun on BEFORE I GO

Colleen Oakley's debut deftly balances sorrow with laughs and compassion. - Us Weekly on BEFORE I GO

Before I Go brings humour and authenticity to a heart-wrenching journey. - Sunday Age

Author Oakley has set herself a tricky balancing act here, blending a comic sensibility with the depth and poignancy her subject requires. She pulls it off. - People Magazine on BEFORE I GO

Colleen Oakley takes on the big three - life, death,and love - and delivers a jewel. Before I Go absolutely glows with humour, wit, and compassion. I adore Oakley's fresh voice and could hardly bear for the book to end.

--Lynn Cullen, bestselling author of MRS POE

Book Description

An untraditional, but beautiful love story about the power and possibilities of the human heart. And how two people can touch each other - without ever even touching.
