I honestly thought that this book was going to be like all those other books that I have read about tragedy coming into a girl’s life and how she moves on and finds love.

It was weirdly really good...I don't normally like lovey dovey books, but this was quite a good read :)
I would like to start by saying that I am a big Gilligan fan but this, her debut novel, is definitely not her best work. Her following two books are much better reads. This is way too D4 for my liking. Its all high-fives here and collared up rugby-playing boys there.

One of the best books I have read. I really enjoyed the way the story changes between both charachters and then finally submerge into one.. <3 Ruth s an extremely talented writer and I look forward to reading more of her books.
