This is one those books which can really make you think about your own life. Reconsider, elaborate things in a different way, even.
The story of Annabel's family and her struggle to become the person she'd look up to takes you through some other parallel stories. Including Owen's.
This is the second book that I read by Sarah Dessen and I think her view about adolescence and teen themes in general is very clear and easy to follow.
One of the best books I have read in my lifetime
oh here i go again.. this is not a review but sort of a comment or a reflection. i love the book. i'm in love with the book! it teaches you how to listen to what your heart says! how silence can be very noisy and distracting! how the the past affected your present, though you cannot feel it. bit by bit it draws you to a world of honesty and truth! it tells you that being nice is not always good, if it entails telling lies. saying "i'm fine" may be a risk of not being true to yourself. this book tell you to TALK. EXPRESS. SHOUT. BE TRUE. hard right? but manageable in its very essence. >",<...Continua

Amazing book . (:...Continua
