Book Infos

The first time Elliott Youngblood spots Catherine Calhoun, he’s just a boy with a camera, and he’s never seen a sadder and more beautiful sight. Both Elliott and Catherine feel like outcasts, yet they find an easy friendship with each other. But when Catherine needs him most, Elliott is forced to leave town.

Elliott finally returns, but he and Catherine are now different people. He’s a star high school athlete, and she spends all her free time working at her mother’s mysterious bed-and-breakfast. Catherine hasn’t forgiven Elliott for abandoning her, but he’s determined to win back her friendship…and her heart.

Just when Catherine is ready to fully trust Elliott, he becomes the prime suspect in a local tragedy. Despite the town’s growing suspicions, Catherine clings to her love for Elliott. But a devastating secret that Catherine has buried could destroy whatever chance of happiness they have left.

The Angry Reader Review

A YA romantic “thriller?” with a twist.

Elliott and Catherine are summer neighbors in a small miserable town. The story spans about 8 years, and their relationship grows from a sweet love into something a little more intense. Catherine has a big secret that defines them.

This book was a little sad and a lot slow. Descriptions of weather that was always too hot or too cold. And Catherine’s life was a giant uphill struggle – to the point that it got a little tedious to read.

The twist became clear, and then it was frustrating to watch Catherine live in that situation without telling anyone. Elliott was sweet – and i loved their love.
