  • Emotional and Refreshing

    I love this book for its simplicity and ability to pull at your heart strings. I didn't know what I was in for when I started to read it. I never read the blurb on the back and so I thought it was just going to be an average girl falls in love with boy and has to choose whether or not her career was more important. Boy was I wrong!

    The way the book is set out with its flashbacks and her current inner dialogue was perfect. It helped layout the emotional connection Mia had with her family and her friends. It also helped to get to know who she was and how she got there. It was vital for these bits of information to be in the book for us to develop a connection with her, to understand her decision and to agree or disagree with it.

    I found myself just reading along, enjoying the flashbacks and loving the storyline and then Wham-O, Mia is brought back to her present situation and her struggle to come to terms with everything and I was crying. I know how she would feel in that situation.

    It's a raw and emotional read that will leave you feeling refreshed and sad at the same time. And the good thing about this book is if you want to find out what happened afterwards then you read the next book: Where She Went.
