This book just shows how Sara Dessen can really connect with the readers and she knows how do get them interested. This book I still cannot get out of my mind because it was so great and interesting with all the twists, turns, and shocking truth about those two girls. Throughout the book it shows us that anything to happen at anytime whether it’s for the good or bad, but everybody can push through it. This shows me that everybody needs a best friend for the ups and the downs for the cries and for the laughs. There is always going to bumps in the road, some bumps take longer to get over then others. With this book it really tells me that love is important, but friendship is something we can’t live without. I recommend this book to mostly females who like surprising twists, amazing characters, and a little bit of a romance. Sara Dessen writes truly amazing books, and I can’t wait to read my next book by her, Lock and Key.
