By Jack Thorne.
Rachel and Peter are 17 and in love.
It's love's young dream, but then Rachel gets ill - seriously ill.
She doesn't want her mum to fuss.
She doesn't want Alice to pretend she's her best friend, and she certainly doesn't want Alice's boyfriend telling bad jokes at her bedside.
The only person she wants is Peter, but Peter doesn't know what he wants.
