    There is an author who writes young adult books like this. It's making me crazy--I think her name starts with M. If I can remember, I'll get back to you.

    Edit: The author I'm thinking of is Lurlene McDaniel. Check her books on amazon.com and see if the one you're thinking of is there. She usually writes about dying teens. She has a series called Angels in Pink that might be what you're looking for.
