Reasons to Live
In loving memory of Wynter, an amazing person as well as friend whose life, friendship, and heart will never be forgotten.<3 1997 - August 2015
"In three weeks, five days, eighteen hours, and two minutes, I, Ashleigh Lauren Logan, am going to die."
Although Ashleigh Logan is only three months into adulthood, she is dying.
Or so she thinks.
Christian Hansen has other plans. After losing his older sister years ago to the same illness, depression, he vowed to never let it happen again. He's not about to break this promise and lose Ashleigh, his best friend, so he devises a plan. A plan to help Ashleigh live out several reasons to stay before the day she can hardly wait for. The same day he's dreading. The day that keeps them both up at night.
As Ashleigh moves through the bucket list - or the "Reasons to Live" as Christian secretly calls it, her eyes begin to open, one reason at a time. But to her, hope is a lie, the very lie that started this mess, the very lie that will end it.
Ashleigh is determined to end it once and for all, and to fix the "problem" she has become. People, however, have many different ways of fixing things, and Christian hopes to show Ashleigh a better solution.
Time is running out, and they are both desperate. Desperate for two very different things.
Ashleigh believes she has many reasons to die, but she will discover many more reasons to live that will challenge that belief.
Something will happen in three weeks, five days, eighteen hours and two minutes. Something that neither one of them could ever have expected.
