This is a wonderful book in the NA genre. It flowed beautifully and is a very easy read. Avery’s trials in finding her brothers secrets had me hooked to the story and it ends very organically. Avery’s grief of losing a sibling who she loved so much and the relationship between the sibling and cousin Margot is really beautiful. The twists and turns in the mystery where Jack and Avery look for clues while living their teenage life full of dreams has me hooked. I like the lack of drama of the climax. I root for Jack and Avery and was able to get involved with the characters in the book. I was able to read the book in two sittings and it was a really good experience. Highly recommended…… I would give it a cool 4.5 out of 5. Thank you new galley and Borough publishing house for the book,
