After reading this book again. I emphasize on the 5 stars. This is such a beautiful book that deals with a lot of important concepts; grief, family, love, heartbreak, and one of my favorites: expressing yourself through poetry. Poetry using the simplest words which have meanings that run deep and hit you hard. Poetry you can easily relate to. Its amazing how you get to know a person’s life through one poem of theirs. Eddie’s past devastated me, but i absolutely loved her relationship with her foster dad, and with Gavin. Can’t talk a lot about Will and Lake without spoiling but I totally loved their first encounter and how things went from there.
Layken’s father died suddenly, leaving her to gather every ounce of strength to be a pillar for her family, in order to prevent their world from falling apart. Now her life is taking another unexpected turn…
Layken’s mother gets a job which leads to an unwanted move across country. However, a new home means new neighbours… and Layken’s new neighbour is the very attractive Will Cooper.
Will has an intriguing passion for slam poetry, and a matching passion for life. The two feel an irresistible attraction but are rocked to the core when a shocking revelation brings their romance to a screeching halt.
Layken and Will must find a way to fight the forces that threaten to tear them apart… or learn to live without each other.
