it was amazing
bookshelves: young-adult, new-adult
Read from June 25 to 30, 2012

Two things about this book straight up:
1-it’s romantic, but not a romance.
2-I found it tough to read in places (My boyfriend, now hubby, joined the navy straight out school; I was 18 when he left).

I thought the story dealt with the separation of David and Penna really well. Both characters were changed by their experiences, and while I shed a few tears I really enjoyed it. I’m kind of hoping there’s a sequel as I’d like to know what happens next.
