OK So I totally wasn't expecting this book to be what it was about.(And I'm not going to say here cause it'll wreck the surprise)

I, incorrectly, made the assumption that it was band or music related as it had been recommended to me as a good read after Thoughtless and the cover had a stage on it etc. It's not.

Also I am not a huge fan of poetry in any form but in this scenario it really worked for me.

I wasn't overly keen on Lake but by the end she had won me over. She acted a little immature & stupid for me in the first half of the book but it helped to emphasis the mature decisions she made later in the book & we got to see her growth.

Will is so sweet & romantic & just wants to do the right thing by everyone regardless as to whether he is happy or not.

Overall I really liked this but it just fell short of me LOVING it.

And OMG I nearly forgot Eddie....Eddie is awesome! The part with her 18th birthday had me in floods!
I'm loving how a lot of YA authors are writing wonderful female best friends. Every girl needs one :)

I would say that this is the older end of YA IMO. There aren't any sexy scenes but they are 18 and 21 and there is some cussing and adult themes etc.
Well worth a read.
