She’s back, and she’s determined to be part of his life, whether he wants her there or not.Then there are college decisions to make, and the toughest baseball game of his life coming up, and a coach who won’t stop pushing Josh all the way to the brink. And then there’s Eve. Her return brings with it all the memories of Josh’s past. It’s time for Josh to face the truth about what happened.If only he knew what the truth was .
Review: This was  a really hard book for me to review because I'm not entirely sure how I feel about it. It was very well written and the flashbacks added a lot of depth to the story.  Everything was well paced and i really enjoyed it reading it, even if it some of it was kind of hard to read. Josh was a really well developed character and they way he changes throughout the novel is really great. he is probably the only character I really liked though. I thought everyone else was annoying. Zik and Rachel were being kind of unrealistic and Josh's parents were just being dumb. Other than that, i did really enjoy this book. It definitely deals with some difficult subjects and i wouldn't recommend this to anyone who is fainthearted.
