This book is third of the three books I’ve recently won which had been offered as part of an internet giveaway by the publisher and the following is my honest opinion for this book.
As with any young girl there’s a strong desire to have the best summer possible after graduating high school and before heading off to college. So Sienna, her mother and brother head off to Tybee Island, where the family had spent countless summers before. But this time it’s different, there’s a lot of guilt her father is no longer alive having been killed as she had been driving the car.
Sienna would love to have the memories of that night disappear, however this is impossible as visions keep on playing in her mind each time she sees a site from a happy moment in her life during one of her stays on the island.
During one of these mental rewinds of the past she blacks out, but luckily one wonderful hunk of a guy, Austin Dobbs, comes to her aid and she immediately gets smitten and her first true romantic relationship ensues. While she has a history, he has issues; yet somehow they make something out of it.
Ms. Johnston has created a wonderful coming of age story, one which will have you feel the roller coaster of emotions along with the characters of the book. The story tugs at your heartstrings and has you shedding tears for them; and might have you recall memories of when you’d been around Sienna’s age; which is why I’m happy to this book 5 STARS.
