The half-life of love by Brianna Bourne
It comes as a twinge, a signal that you’ve reached the exact half point of your life…Flint knows he will die at 16 so he’s never really tried to live. With 6 weeks left, he returns to his hometown with his family, determined to go quietly. Science-obsessed September interns at the world-renowned Half Life Institute. She has never grieved the death of her younger sister who “half-lifed” the previous year but she is determined to find a cure.
Chance brings the two together. A friendship – and then something more – starts to form. September’s easy warmth gives Flint permission to enjoy his life, and in turn Flint allows September to grieve instead of hiding behind smiles and personas. But time’s running out and Flint hasn’t shared his secret yet – will their connection prove extraordinary enough to last beyond those last few weeks, or is their time together destined to end in heartbreak?
