What I learned was that this young girl, so full of life, had her share of problems just like the rest of us.
Addison was an up and coming brilliant artist. One to watch and boy did people watch. When she walked in the room, every eye was on her. It wasn't that she was beautiful, which she was, but the way that she carried herself with confidence that not a single person was better than her.
This book is chalked full of interviews from every person that had a hand in Addison's life, trying to piece the time she spent here back together and let the world know whom she really was.
I thought the way the book was written was BRILLIANT!!! I loved every second of it and found myself reading every chance that I could get to find out more about this mysterious girl.
The story itself is very sad and it is kind of a wake up call to all of us to keep an eye on our children, friends and family at all times. you never know when we could lose them and to cherish the moments that we have together.
This book was hilarious! It was written exactly how I expect a 21 yr old virgin to think and act. I just couldn't get over how real this book actuallyThis book was hilarious!

I do not think that I have been so frustrated with a book that I had been reading like ever! But it was a good frustrating!!! I could seriously feel mI do not think that I have been so frustrated with a book that I had been reading like ever! But it was a good frustrating!!! I could seriously feel my blood pressure rise while reading and had to put it down several times because I wanted to just jump on into the story myself and commit murder on a few characters! This book made me feel something and even though it was anger, it left me with a story that I definitely will not forget due to all the mixed up emotions that I had while reading!
Cassie wakes up 1000 years in the future when she is informed that the world that she knew is long gone and everyone that she loves is no longer alive. This is where I first starting having the heart palpitations but believe me...this was only the beginning! Cassie is literally kept a prisoner that is expected to just do what the government tells her even though their plan is so sinister!
I really enjoyed Cassie as a character and was enamored of her strength. If I had to go through even an ounce of what she did in this book, I definitely would have given up. I also love the fact that even though she didn't want certain things to happen, she welcomed them with open arms because that is just what you are supposed to do and never in the book did she even have a thought of giving that up. (I cannot reveal what I am exactly speaking of because then you will all be spoiled!)
Next we have Michael and I liked him at first but the more the book went on, the more I was not so sure of him???? He had all these secrets that he just kept keeping from Cassie which really was annoying and added to my anger. The biggest ones were revealed right at the end and I wish that Cassie would have given him the boot! I just adored Travel and thought he was the man for Cassie:( He was sweet and really tried to make her happy!
I could probably go on and on about this book but that will deter all of you from reading it....so, go right now and hit up Amazon! I guarantee that you will be as frustratingly happy with it as I am! AND then, come on back and discuss it with me! I am dying to chat with someone about it! I can't wait for the next in the series!!!!...more
