Synopsis: After the car crash that leaves her best friend dead, Jenna is permanently scarred. She struggles to rebuild her life, but every stare in the street, every time she looks in the mirror, makes her want to retreat further from the world. Until she meets Ryan. Ryan’s a traveler. When he and his mother moor their narrow boat on the outskirts of a village, she tells him this time it will be different. He doesn’t believe her; he can’t imagine why this place shouldn’t be as unwelcoming as the rest. Until he meets Jenna. But as Jenna and Ryan grow closer, repercussions from the crash continue to reverberate through the community. And then a body is found.

MY RATING: 5 Starts


Jenna had a crash, the same car accident where her best friend died. Now, Jenna is permanently scarred.
However hard she tries she can’t return to piece together the puzzle of her life.
One day Jenna meets Ryan, a traveller boy. He doesn’t have father, only mother. They (Ryan and his mom) moor their boat on the outskirts of a village, the same village where Jenna lives.
This story is about a friendship/love relationship between Jenna and Ryan. They grow closer and closer, he was the only person who could approach her in awhile.

I liked everything in this book. There is nothing that I disliked about it, I just fell permanently in love with this story.
I truly loved their relationship. Ryan would stand for Jenna no matter what (this is love).
Even though the characters are really young, because she is 14 and he is 16, they’ve been through a lot in their lives and that’s why I think that we all should read this kind of stories. This is an “open eyes” for a lot of people because everyone is beautiful… You are beautiful, even if you have a big scar in your face, in your body or in your neck
