My name is Devan Anderson and I am a photographer and the by product of a cheating father and a childhood evaporated by illness. I’m stubborn, protective, but I care more than I let on. What does a girl like me do when I taste life for the first time?
I’ll give you a hint. It isn’t what you think.
My name is Ian Jensen and I am a Pediatric Oncologist that works day and night with kids that prove to be braver than I. I am open to Nerf gun fights, having fun, and taking control. What’s a doctor who lives life by the book do when given a new chapter to live in?
Ask me again tomorrow?
What happens when a photographer set to live in the dark meets the doctor that lives in the light? What happens when our world collide?
In All I Ask, Elizabeth York pieced together a novel about a tough subject, but managed to walk the line to keep it less heart wrenching, without disrespecting the matter. As someone whose family has been touched by childhood cancer, that really meant a lot to this reader.
Devan hasn’t had it easy in life. She’s fun and strong, but more jaded than most. Now a photographer, she teams up with a local pediatric oncologist to help raise money for children suffering from cancer. Ian, wants to prevent suffering. He’s the fun doctor, who everyone wishes they had as a kid.
I really enjoyed All I Want. The characters are interesting, multifaceted, unexpected and endearing. The storyline can be hard at times, but the humor, angst, mystery, and explosive chemistry between Devan and Ian keep the reader reeled in. The pacing felt a bit choppy because there was a lot going on. It could feel a bit busy at times. I would recommend this to the reader looking for a book that has a very wide range of emotion, and characters that stick with you when the ride is over.
