I received a free copy of this ebook in exchange for an honest review.

I have to say I really enjoyed this book! I wasn't sure exactly what to expect since I've never read anything by this author before. I loved how this book was set up: we knew right away that Peter was killed, but we didn't know how, we didn't know why, and we certainly didn't know who did it. Wendy was a curious girl who often couldn't make up her mind. She wavered between wanting to be with Dylan, the hot, new kid in school,

Oh wow, this book made me cry my eyes out. It was so beautifully written, so emotional, true to the emotions and behaviors of the teens in this book. I cried at the prologue (of course, if you read the book). I cried during the heartbreak of all the teen drama. And I cried when the prologue caught up with the book. It was truly such an emotional, heartfelt story of love and lost and infidelity in a teenage world.

I loved Peter and Wendy. I loved Peter's dreams and even Wendy's confusion of teena

This was a good read, though I feel at some points it was a bit too YA for me. Sometimes Wendy seemed younger than her 16 years and at other times older - I would have to remind myself what age she actually was.

Wendy and Peter are best friends, though he obviously loves her more than just friends, she seems to be oblivious to to that fact. The new boy Dylan comes into the picture, and to be honest I thought he was a jerk from the get go just and didn't see the attraction between him and Wendy. H

2.5 stars. This book had a lot of flaws, but it had potential. It just needed a little more work, in my opinion.

1. I did not like Wendy, the narrator. She waffled back and forth between Pete and Dylan, and Dylan was an unlikeable jerk, so I really didn't see the draw.
2. Wendy, the main character, either acted WAY too immature, or too old. Basically, she never, ever acted like a 15-16 year-old would act. The scene where Pam and Wendy are talking and Pam asks about a guy's "you-know-what" annoye

A journey that no one person wants to experience. Raw emotions. Well written and emotionally expressed. A plot so real, characters easy to escape into their lives. An absolute amazing read!
