Book Review: Maybe One Day by Melissa Kantor

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

Genre: Realistic Fiction

Age Recommended: 14 and up

This book was very fast-paced in the beginning and started to slow down halfway through.

Maybe One Day


Olivia and Zoe are best friends and always will be. Even when they get kicked out of their dance school where they’ve been performing for ten years, they find a way to bounce back to normal. Or as normal as it gets without dance in one’s life.

However, Olivia goes to the hospital sick one day and doctors figure out that she has leukemia. When Zoe finds out, her world is turned upside down once more. Even her daily visits to the hospital don’t seem to help and Olivia’s health is deteriorating rapidly.

When blood transfusions don’t work, Zoe and Olivia’s school sets up a fund raiser to raise money to help Olivia. There, people also volunteer for bone marrow transfusions. Olivia’s brother Jake volunteers and signs up to donate his marrow to Olivia but Zoe isn’t allowed to because she’s under 17 and not family.

Zoe also starts falling for Olivia’s crush Calvin, whom she couldn’t stand earlier. It’s an opposites attract kind of situation.

To make matters worse, Olivia’s body accepts the bone marrow transfusion at first, but then her health deteriorates faster than before and doctors don’t know what to do.

Will Olivia survive? Will Olivia and Zoe’s friendship last?
