Received a copy of this from the author in return of an honest review.

this is the tale of Abigails first love as she recalls the highs and lows of that time to her carer and what a ride she takes us all on!! She describes clearly every single moment and emotion from the first time she laid eyes on Al to the low points of the break ups - and there are a few! Was written in such an interesting way that you just keep wanting to read to find out more and the only downside was the very sudden ending
