Thoughts: I honestly didn't think that I would like this book as much as I did. The beginning seems like a cute little love story but as you get more into the book you start to feel as if you know the characters thoughts and actions until a huge twist happens and throws you for a loop. I found myself saying "wow" on several occasions as the rich plot flowed and I saw the characters develop. This book allows you to watch youth grow to adulthood and teaches you how one bad decision and forever change your life.
