I couldn't take this book for serious. I just couldn't.
I hated the main character who was really annoying, whiny, ungrateful... and I could never understand how an Augustus Waters double (I'm not even kidding - I swear this is a really bad, blurry copy of Augustus) could fall in love with a brat like our lovely main character.

Overall, An okay read.

Review on blog: Tumbling In Books

This book is like Romeo and Juliet meet The Fault in Our Stars. I cried so much in this book! I should stop reading books about people dying. Lol.

Anyway... the story starts with this broken-hearted girl who was still trying to get over her twin's death and her family went to their summer house for healing time and stuff. And so she met this guy, opened her heart to him and all and I'll stop here before I spill more spoilers. Oops.

I think this was kind of an oka

Pretty good read

I thought it was a pretty good book very sad at the end of it.I thought the characters Callie and Ethan were very good together although it was sad about Ethan but overall I thought it was a pretty good read.

Although the story was emotional, I felt that the end was too easy and too fast. To make the h got the message, the end should not be that drastic.

I've been passionate about reading since I was a little girl, which lead to a love of writing. I write YA--especially if it involves at least some kissing.

I have my B.S. in Secondary Education-English from Penn State University, and am also pursuing my M.S. in Mental Health Counseling.

I live and write in New Bern, North Carolina.
