My Rating : ★★★☆☆ (3.3)
“It was so peaceful, relaxing or would have been relaxing if the electricity wasn’t flowing through my veins. I was expected and felt alive; anticipation of what might come next was keeping me on pins and needles.” – MElissa a.hanson
Bailey, a teenager who lost all her family in a tragic accident and since then, she has to live with the pain of being the only one who survived. She moved in with her aunt and uncle and is trying to start a new life along with two of her best friends , Natasha and Mia. One day, she babysits Riley, a really cute and adorable little boy in the park and he starts playing with another girl, Lacey. The girl is Collin’s little sister and also Bailey’s biggest crush. We follow the journey to their blooming romance, how she’s coping with her loss and how Collin helps her heal with love. Overall, the story is enjoyable but not impressive.
“It troubled me that a girl could get so under my skin. I was always in control of my emotions, in control of any situations. ”
– MELISSA A.HANSON
The romance was predictable and redundant. There was some unnecessary drama here and there. I think it may be more appropriate for middle school – high school audience than people in their 20’s and over. To be honest, I was even more intrigued in Riley and Lacey’s friendship than the main characters haha these two were so cute when they play together (two little children). The story is told through the eyes of different characters so it was nice to see the real motives behind their actions. Except that, I think it’s a nice book to read beside a beach or just to relax. When you want to plunge in a nice teenager romance. I know that if I was in high school, I’d enjoy this book even more. For more information about my rating you can look here .

I personally don’t enjoy romance all that much, but I have a few students who would love this.
