This story was about your first love during teenager years and how that can sometimes get out of control. Tony Stefano was a couple years older than Maggie McGuire, but they fell in love as teenagers. They even had a baby even though Tony did not know about it. Tony had left town because he was just not used to staying in one place. He only came home because his grandmother wanted to see him. His grandmother fell and hurt herself. He ended up seeing his first love Maggie. The old feelings that t ...more

Tony came home from Brazil because his Nonna had fallen and hurt herself. His grandmother was supposed to live forever. Maggie had e-mailed Tony, but hadn't seen him since they were teenagers. Both Tony and Maggie are apprehensive about meeting up again. Maggie had no idea why Tony just up and left town so suddenly. Tony had no idea what Maggie had to live through after he left. Growing up Tony and Maggie are the only two children for miles and they grow very close.

Oh my... This book was amazing. It Talks about issues from teen love to dealing with forgiveness as an adult. A bad boy who deals with rejection and a young girl who has lost so much. But will love and determination be the simple as forgiveness? This book is amazing and is an easy reminder that forgiveness is so simplewe have to just set aside the pain and let go of the anger to allow the love to blossom. I really enjoyed this book so much.

Teen love, round two. These two never quit loving each other, but because of their assumptions about what others think of them, they have a hard time getting it all sorted. Quaint small town scenes abound. Enjoy!
