“In the face of tragedy, friendship is everything.” 

When best friends Zoe and Olivia are cut from dance school, their dreams of the future come crashing down.

It isn’t until Olivia is diagnosed with cancer that they both realize life is too short to get hung up on the negatives.

“Maybe One Day” made me realize this, too.

In this novel I didn’t find any fancy symbolism or dozens of metaphors, which makes it feel so open and honest.

“Maybe One Day” stood out not because its writing was metaphorical and fluffy but because it was just a realistic, relatable story.

I could imagine it all happening in my own life, which was terrifying yet eye opening. 

It really made me appreciate the people close to me and see how fragile and fleeting everything is.

At times, I had trouble finding motivation to pick up the book, but once I would start reading, I had to force myself to put it down.

I found myself reading Melissa Kantor’s novel late at night just to finish and crying when I did.

If you’re looking for a touching book about friendship, “Maybe One Day” is definitely a book to consider.
