Brief synopsis: Sky and (Dean) Holder both have reputations – he’s the bad boy that spent a year in juvi and she’s a slut. Despite warnings from her best friend, Sky just can’t resist – she’s never felt an attraction to a guy before.
As Sky learns that Holder isn’t the person she thought he was, she learns the same can be said about herself.
What I thought: I think this book may have just ruined my year – just 12 days in and I cannot imagine anything being able to top it. It is amazing.
The chapters in this book are all dates and times – the story begins on 28th October, then jumps back to August and tells of the events that lead up to that date. I was convinced that I knew which way the story was going from the beginning but I couldn’t have been more wrong. I’d even misinterpreted the first chapter!
I don’t think I could possibly write anything well enough to portray just how good this book is – amazing story, amazing characters, amazing writing. It is so intense I had to put it down and leave the house for an hour halfway through. It is AMAZING.
I should warn though, this is not a nice light read. The story covers some serious subjects in an intense story and is not recommended for anyone under the age of 17.
“‘The sky is always beautiful. Even when it’s dark or rainy or cloudy, it’s still beautiful to look at. It’s my favorite thing because I know if I ever get lost or lonely or scared, I just have to look up and it’ll be there no matter what… and I know it will always be beautiful.'”
