Oh my freaking Lordy!! This book had be sobbing like a baby and smiling at the same time. When a book puts you on a rollercoaster of emotion, you know it's a good book. Lake's first "Slam" experience made me cry, and I was only 20 or so pages in. I WAS HOOKED, or should I say SLAMMED? The big reveal in the beginning had me floored. I sure didn't see that one coming. I LOVE the romantic tension throughout the WHOLE book.
The poems...oh the poems...all of the poems were amazing. I could almost hear the characters performing and emoting as I was reading them.
This book is not only a great love story, but a wonderful story of growing up and handling life's punches. A BIG thank you to Colleen for writing such a beautiful story. :)
