On the night of her high school graduation, Vale McKinley and her boyfriend Crawford are in a terrible car accident that leaves Crawford in a coma. They were supposed to spend the summer planning for college, for a bright future full of possibility. Together. Instead, Vale spends long days in the hospital, hoping Crawford will awaken.
Slate Allen, a college friend of Vale’s brother, has been visiting his dying uncle at the same hospital. When he and Vale meet, she can’t deny the flutter of an illicit attraction. She tries to ignore her feelings, but she’s not immune to Slate’s charm. Slowly, they form a cautious friendship.
Then, Crawford wakes up . . . with no memory of Vale or their relationship. Heartbroken, Vale opts to leave for college and move on with her life. Except now, she’s in Slate’s territory, and their story is about to take a very strange turn.
Thought the book was an alright read for me. The beginning of it did not care much. It was very predictable at first. Then in the middle was surprise by an huge twist.
Vale was so dictated to Carter in the book. Willing to give up her dreams to be with him. I like watching her grow, and learning to coop after the accident.
I did not like Slate as much. A big player sleep with everyone. But after a big twist in the middle of the book, started to feel bad for the guy. Can he complete with coma guy, Carter for Vale’s heart?
Book is mostly for older teens. You enjoy predictable story, shocking twist then this book might be for you. Also the summary is very misleading. Looking for a new fiction then this book may be for you.
