Synopsis: Nadio and his twin sister Noelle always had a unique bond. And somehow Keeley Shipley fit perfectly into their world. But when Keeley spends the summer in England, she comes home changed, haunted by a dark memory. As she and Nadio fall in love, they try to hide it from Noelle, whose jealousy's guarding a secret of her own. Slowly, a life long friendship begins to crack under the crushing weight of past trauma, guarded secrets, jealousy, obsession.....and an unexpected love that could destroy them.

Oh god, this book was just devastating. Its like the book should have a big red sticker that says, "DO NOT READ IF YOU ARE A. SUICIDAL B. DEPRESSED C. ETC." I mean really. I didnt cry granted but I was like, "OMFG WHY!" Yeah, so not for those who are any of the listed above. Its a beautiful story. The dialog became a bit confusing here and there do to its unusual set up but all in all the book was just amazing. Okay so I did want to punch a few characters (hmm that seems to be a trend...) but I couldnt help it. Some of them were just simply infuriating. Okay and Ill admit I did look up a cookbook mentioned because Noelle said she wanted to learn what it was. So what judge me. I thought it was a date rape cookbook. Okay so I did become a little imaginative here and there but oh well. That was the beauty of the book. It left you wondering what it was that happened/what something was until the last chunk of the book. Gotta love books like that. Read it, I swear you wont regret it :) (unless or an A. B. or C.)
