I never expected this book to hit me as hard as it did when I found it for free on amazon. Anticipating a typical ya romantic novel I was astonished to find a thoughtful novel with a reasonable plot although it was rushed and could have been more detailed. I could easily connect with the characters and their relationships, yet I often wondered what their thoughts are but overall, the story worked the way Preston wrote it. The focus was set on the relationship between Oakley and Cole and I could easily comprehend their feelings for each other since I also used to be a love-stricken 15yro girl wherefore I am truly not able to understand Oakleys decision to leave the coutry and therefore Cole. This ending really surprised me and troubled me a lot!
