Symptoms of a Heartbreak
Fresh from med school, sixteen-year-old medical prodigy Saira arrives for her first day at her new job: treating children with cancer. She’s always had to balance family and friendships with her celebrity as the Girl Genius—but she’s never had to prove herself to skeptical adult co-workers while adjusting to real life-and-death stakes. And working in the same hospital as her mother certainly isn’t making things any easier.But life gets complicated when Saira finds herself falling in love with a patient: a cute teen boy who’s been diagnosed with cancer. And when she risks her brand new career to try to improve his chances, it could cost her everything.It turns out “heartbreak” is the one thing she still doesn’t know how to treat.

    Saira is the youngest MD in America. With an internship in pediatric oncology, she knows she will make a difference in lives, just like she tried to do for Harper. We follow Saira, Cho, and Howard through several months as interns. Along the way we meet patients Pinky, Alina, Brenden, and Linc. Saira’s journey includes making decisions about life-long friends, as well as learning to drive. This book is filled with descriptions of foods that Saira’s daida makes.

    Saira is the Girl Genius, the youngest doctor in America; a title that she is proud to have and strives to live up to. When she begins her residency at the hospital her mother works at, Saira tries to distance herself and build her own reputation as a good doctor (something that is hard to do when you aren't much older, or younger, than your patients). When she bumps into a cancer patient named Lincoln, she is immediately smitten with him...and when Lincoln assumes she is a cancer patient as wel Saira is the Girl Genius, the youngest doctor in America; a title that she is proud to have and strives to live up to.

When she bumps into a cancer patient named Lincoln, she is immediately smitten with him...and when Lincoln assumes she is a cancer patient as well (and Saira does nothing to dissuade him of that thought) he finds someone that knows exactly what he is going through. Charaipotra does a wonderful job of deftly weaving a lovely story with the heavy topics of cancer, children and death. I was quickly sucked into her character's lives and I was desperate to find out what happens when Saira starts to act more like a 16 year old girl rather than a genius doctor. Can't wait to see what else Sona Charaipotra has up her sleeve!Thanks to NetGalley for the ARC!

    This book took me a little while to get into, but it was fun, thoughtful, and clever. I loved that Saira was the youngest doctor at her hospital and could hold her own against the other doctors, but some of her decisions were so frustrating! I could understand why they needed to happen since she is so young, prodigy or not, and it definitely increased the tension. Oh, and don't even get me started on her family, namely her aunt.I would recommend this book to anyone who loves television shows lik This book took me a little while to get into, but it was fun, thoughtful, and clever.
