I have read and loved every book written by Cassy Roop and even though this is a completely different style for her, I loved it even more! I couldn’t put this book down and was sad to see it end. This book had me on a roller coaster of emotions, feeling happy at times and other times ugly crying, but it was amazing to watch the journey that Ellie and Evan were on. I felt every emotion right along with them both. Cassy Roop is a very talented author and able to draw me in to each story. I look forward to reading more from her in the future.
