John Green's The Fault in Our Stars meets Rainbow Rowell's Eleanor & Park in this darkly funny novel from the critically acclaimed author of The Beginning of Everything. Up until his diagnosis, Lane lived a fairly predictable life. But when he finds himself at a tuberculosis sanatorium called Latham House, he discovers an insular world with paradoxical rules, med sensors, and an eccentric yet utterly compelling confidante named Sadie—and life as Lane knows it will never be the same. Robyn Schneider's Extraordinary Means is a heart-wrenching yet ultimately hopeful story about the miracles of first love and second chances. This production includes a bonus excerpt from Robyn Schneider’s next audiobook, Invisible Ghosts, performed by Caitlin Kelly.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This thought-provoking novel about smart kids doing interesting things will resonate with the John Green contingent, as it is tinged with sadness, high jinks, wry humor, and philosophical pondering in equal measures.” Booklist (starred review)
“It’s hard to imagine a story about terminally ill teens that isn’t depressing, but Schneider has created just that…Lane and Sadie’s alternating viewpoints sensitively trace how their experiences affect their perspectives of both life and death…Balancing the hope of new beginnings against the uncertain fates of victims, it’s a novel that should prompt thoughtful discussions.” Publishers Weekly
“The uncommon setting, Schneider’s keen ear for dialogue, and the distinctive characters ensure that this captivating book about life, death, fear, and second chances will fly off the shelves.” VOYA
“Schneider’s subtlety, combined with themes about learning to live life fully, makes this an easy recommendation for those seeking titles similar in premise to John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars.” School Library Journal
“Narrator Khristine Hvam and James Fouhey are well cast in their dual narration of the interwoven story of Lane and Sadie…Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
