Really liked this story....have an afinity for Australia so enjoyed the setting. Loved the story within a story, found myself more invested in the 5 friends than in Taylor, but liked how the past and present were so intertwined. Also liked how Griggs and Taylor's love was portrayed, intense and seemingly real without being cheesy. Think teens will appreciate those feelings and not being babied with regards to the detailed intimacy and possibly controversial topics, ie drug addiction, pedophilia. Liked how the 4 friends in the present were building relationships similar to the 5 friends from the past. Might have teared up at the end when Taylor finally gets to know Tate.
