But Peyton doesn’t trust her heart, especially when she senses that Owen is hiding something. When their secrets are finally exposed, Peyton has to decide if love is worth fighting for.
I really liked the book. The story was heartbreaking and little empowering with facing your fears.
I liked Peyton in the book. She is head strong and stubborn. Had everything going for her until an accident change her life forever. Now she leaves her hometown behind to coop with healing, and hiding from her painful pass. Will she be able to open herself up again and let go of the past?
I adore Owen, he comes off making dumb jokes at Peyton but then has an soft side as well. He is a fighter with his own secrets and not good opening up either. With Owen, who is force to help Peyton heal from her accident. It would be a matter a time before secrets get out. Will these two be strong enough to stay together in the end?
This book has fighters in, and some sensitive subjects for younger teens. Book was just an good read and would the story over and over again. Just have some tissues ready.
