  18. Massive love for this book It was like she fused a YA book and an Adult one The transitions from past to present were fluid and not confusing at all, but she still made it seem like you were reading two completely different books It was pretty amazing how she did that Loved both Del and Lauren They were normal, and though mistakes were made, they were just human mistakes It wasn t because they were stupid or being jerks, sometimes crappy things just happen and we work with what we re given There [...]
