Main Players: Jessica Gilmansen and Pietr Rusakova
Loved, loved, loved this book. It completely haunted my sleep. My mind would rather stay focused on the characters than sleep. I am most anxious to find out what happens after that intense cliff hanger. August can't come soon enough.
I really liked the depth of the characters as well as the story. At times Jessie seems a bit overly dense but I think that is more because we as a reader are not in her stressed position and can more easily see the signs coming from Pietr. I felt that this book held a few surprises for the characters especially those we thought we knew so well. There was also a good message about the importance of being upfront with those we love. Secrets really do build walls that block and eventually can destroy good relationships.
Anyway, I most definitely recommend this book to everyone. There was only one small tidbit I wasn't much pleased with. I am not a big fan of grounding a book in reality by using references to things contained in reality. I guess I like to think each new book is in some alternate fictional reality. So the part where she references Twilight, by Stephenie Meyer wasn't my favorite but it wasn't horrible either.
