Christopher Clarke is the nicest guy Amy Fallon has ever met. He is handsome, smart, funny, an all-around great guy. Tyler Clarke is hot. So why is Amy, one of the smartest girls in school, so clueless when it comes to realizing who she is truly falling in love with? Or better yet, who’s falling in love with her.
Amy is forced to spend the week at her grandmother’s house in Arizona. She returns home to New York with a closer bond to her grandmother, with a best friend who she adores and with a boyfriend who she believes is everything she has ever dreamed of. After months of communication with the two new men in her life, things finally seem to be falling in to place for Amy. That is, until she starts to realize whom her heart is truly longing for. When she returns to Arizona almost a year later, things don’t go quite as planned when she is blindsided not only by the death of her grandmother, but learns the truth behind the text messages from Tyler. With time, and a little help from her grandmother’s memory we are able to see if her broken heart can heal and get Amy back on the course she was destined for.
This book was really a fun read and brought me back a lot to being a teenager.
It was also though, very well written, full of emotion, and deals with confusing emotions, death, friendship, teen pregnancy, and even bullying.
I liked how author Rebecca Rembish didn't skip over large parts of the characters lives when they were seperate from eachother as most romance novels would do, but instead you get a full picture of Amy and even Chris's lives - their family, separate friends, schools, and thoughts.
It also was not only from one characters point of view, but went back and forth between Chris and Amy's thoughts.
I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good romance, and would definitely give it the seal of 'safeness' for teens - no racy content!
