Review: I thought this book was a really sweet and awesome story about love and family and the many different relationships that are made throughout a lifetime. I rarely see books about a teen father raising a child and it was a nice change. I also really liked the way that the elephants tied into the story. It made the book that much more special. However, I thought the plot moved pretty slowly during some parts and I didn't really see the chemistry between the characters and was kind of annoyed at how they met and quickly became friends. I did really like all the characters though. Jade is awesome and her growth throughout the book was great, and Sebastian happens to be the sweetest guy ever. Although, both characters have their own issues they are dealing with, being together seemed to make them both stronger. I have read and loved other books by Deb Caletti and although I did enjoy this one a lot it just wasn't my favorite. I found some things to be kind of predictable and Sebastian's secret was really annoying. Overall, I thought this one was pretty good.
