I finished this book last night, and all night I had Sea, Deni, and Spider's words running through my head. This isn't a book you easily forget. It's a story about finding yourself, what it means to lose everything, love, heartbreak, and it's written beautifully. I couldn't put this one down, it was just so captivating and I loved it.

Sienna, Sea, Jones is afraid of flying and constantly haunted by dreams of her mother's disappearance. Ever since her mother has died, she has never been the same. So on her 15th birthday when her dad decides to go to Indonesia, he wants Sienna to go along to help. After debating with herself, she goes. While there Sea meets Deni. Deni is hot, troubled, and somehow just like Sienna. I loved these two characters. They helped each other in so many ways that it was just amazing. Heartbreaking (I was upset - I don't know how Sienna did it), but amazing.

Now we can't forget the other characters... one who happened to be probably my favorite, which was Spider. Hot surfer boy sweetheart, Spider. I just loved how he was there for Sienna. He's such a good-hearted kid and believe me, if I could have my own Spider... I would go get one now! Haha. Also I loved Elli. She was adorable and the way Sienna helped her was just meant to be.

Hearing the stories from the tsunami, during this book, just broke my heart. I can't even imagine what it must have been like and how these children kept going. I would have been devastated. Thankfully, this book shows you that, there are people who are willing to help you along the way, you just have to let them.

This story was beautiful, and I can't get it out of my head. Heartbreak, finding youself, love, helping, friendship, and letting go. This book has it all. If you get a chance this book is a must read. :)
