Nathan Everets knows heartache firsthand when a car accident leaves his best friend in a coma. And it’s all his fault. He should be the one lying in the hospital.

Captivating and hopeful, this achingly poignant novel brings together two lost souls struggling with grief and guilt–looking for acceptance, so they can find forgiveness.“
MY RATING: 4.5 Starts
This book was so, but so good… I don’t really have words to describe it. It was an amazing reading, I honestly was on a reading slump because (believe it or not) I’m really really sick… which means that I don’t really want to do anything… not even reading, not even writing reviews… but here I am… so you can tell how good this book was in my opinion.
I can honestly say that I loved all of the characters… I really think that the main character is an awesome person, I can honestly relate to Monroe a lot… I like the way she is, I like the way she thinks… I pretty love everything about her… and even Nathan?! Yes, I liked him a lot… I mean, he’s probably NOT my tipe of boy, I didn’t love him, I don’t want to marry him… but I enjoyed reading about him… I enjoyed the chapters that were actually narrated by him.
This book actually has an awesome story behind it, it is a realistic fiction/contemporary novel which means that it involves drama, OBVIOUSLY… and even if normally I don’t like teenage drama, this kind of drama is not that bad… because it is bad stuff, there is serious stuff going on on this book… so I can’t say that it is teenage drama… I actually enjoyed the drama in this story… and the couple, the two main characters… I mean, I really think that they are a cute couple… I’m not going to say that I’m thrilled with the end of this book… I’m not going to say that this book has a happy ending… but it hasn’t a sad/bad end either… I just can’t explain it without spoiling you, sorry!
I was not sure if I was going to like this book to be honest… I was kind of afraid because when I bought it I didn’t know a lot about it… actually until today, until I started reading the book I knew nothing about it… so basically I could love it or I could hate it… the good thing is that I actually loved it, so…. GOOD SHOT!
I think that everyone should read this book… this story is really cute, it was kind fo short (maybe) because I kind of feel that I wanted to know more about it… BUT, I’m pretty happy with this book… so I obviously recommend it to everyone who likes contemporary/young adult novels.
