Review: This is the first book I have ever read by Sara Zarr and I really enjoyed it. This is a very emotionally driven story line and I couldn't put it down until I was done. I think what really made the story special was how well developed all of the characters were. Every interaction or conversation between characters felt so real. I thought both Jill and Mandy's emotions while each dealing with their problems was very well written and realistic. I really enjoyed reading from both of their perspectives. I think this story would have been to one sided without that. I also really liked Dylan's character. He was so sweet when others would have given up. This is a really good contempoary novel that will draw you in to the story and make you fall in love with these characters.
