If Kisses Cured Cancer is a story about life in a growing coastal town, falling in love and stealing shopping trolleys.
'A refreshing take on young love poisoned by life-threatening illness. Heartfelt, honest and surprisingly funny.' - Jodie How.
Matt Pearce is depressed, working an uninspiring job and lacking any prospect of dragging his life out of mediocrity. That is until he meets Joy: a cancer survivor who lives beyond the rules of normal people.
As the pair go on a series of unusual dates - from hijacking fish n chip orders, to 'extreme people watching' at the airport - their love for each other grows. But Joy's past is about to catch up with her, and a hidden secret could tear the two apart forever.
If Kisses Cured Cancer is a quirky look at finding love in unlikely places. It is about the importance of connecting with those around you, enjoying every moment and not being afraid to go skinny dipping in the forest. It will have you in tears of joy, tears of sorrow and tears of laughter.

Book Review: If Kisses Cured Cancer by T. S. Hawken - Reviewed by Ronnie293 (11 Jun 2018)
Matt Pearce is depressed, working an uninspiring job and lacking any prospect of dragging his life out of mediocrity. That is until he meets Joy; a cancer survivor who lives beyond the rules of normal people.
Matt's dream was to become a writer but after too many rejections he had given up on it. When he is sacked from his call centre job, for being too customer oriented, Matt claws himself back from the depths of depression and decides now is the time to try writing again. Really do something.
Whilst out shopping he sees a woman taking someones full trolley then she proceeds to the checkout, pays for it and leaves. Fascinated by this girl Matt follows her and confronts her. She tells him she does this to save time. They soon become firm friends. Joy was very much a free thinker, she helped Matt to open up and see a different side to life. To live the life he imagined.
The story follows Matt and Joy as they get up to some funny antics and ultimately fall in love but love doesn't conquer all which makes this a very emotional read. If Kisses Cured Cancer is filled with raw emotion and using personal experiences as inspiration Hawken has written a touching story filled with moments of humour to lighten the story but still give the subject the reverence it deserves.
