Seventeen-year-old Cameron Martin has a huge problem: he's aging a whole year of his life with each passing day!

High school is hard enough; imagine rapidly aging from seventeen to seventy in a matter of weeks, with no logical explanation, and with prom, graduation, and the state championship basketball game all on the horizon. That's what happens to Cameron, a popular pretty boy who's never had to face a day looking anything but perfect.

All Cameron wants to do is go back to normal, but no one, not even the best doctors, can diagnose his condition. When he finds love with a mysterious young woman, however, he realizes his only hope for survival might be with the one person who started his condition in the first place...

Whoa! I read this book for a day. I couldn't put my kindle down since the first time I started.  The plot moved along so quickly. Personally, I think the story is unique. I thought that kind of desease were truly exist (well yes but different symptoms) but then it happened because of other reason, love, if I may mention. Cameron had a perfect face, perfect girlfriend, and he was a basketball star. He started aging since the last time he lied about his birthday and got a free chocolate cake. He kept aging and no one could help. His girlfriend dumped him for the new basketball star. His bestfriend turned out so annoying with his documentary project. The librarian loved him! And there was a red-head girl who he had never seen before, started to steal his attention. Cameron is a great character to read about. He started to realize that he had make a lot mistakes to a lot people and he was sorry. The desease made him realized and brought up the good of him. I was touched by the reaction of his family when he was getting older. I know it's hard to accept when you're lovely son will die before you. I can't wait to read the rest of trilogy!! :)
