I was intrigued by this YA romance of Dylan and Cait. Cait goes through the most heart-breaking loss at the death of her older sister. As can happen, the parents felt the older sister to be the ideal template for the younger one. Cait is artistic and comfortable being a "misfit" and finds a blossoming attraction to Dylan.

Dylan lives downt he street in her neighborhood and introduces himself to Cait just as her world is exploding. Their friendship soon becomes something more and they both explore the possibility of love. It's Cait's grieving parents that have a hard time letting go.

I thought this was a good, quick read. It was fun reading about the thoughts of a young couple new to love and all its facets. I look forward to reading more from Theresa Troutman!

I thought this was a great coming of age novella. It deals with not only first love, but also the different way people deal with grief. I really liked the characters of Dylan and Caitlin and I hope that there will be a future book with more of their story.

It was a quick read and very enjoyable.

I love being able to sit down and read a fun love story in one sitting. This book was sweet, cute, romantic and touching. I totally laughed out loud at the pool scene. "Now I'm afraid to look in the water." HA! I loved it!

This was an awesome young love story! I found this to be an amazing story that works with tragedy in the family and a daughter that is lost in the middle. it was a wonderful plot of finding friendship in someone you never thought of. It is not overly drawn out and perfect for an older teen, young adult, and adult. I would think pg-13 for some sexual situations so don't pick this up for your 13 year old lol. I really enjoyed reading this book by Theresa Troutman!

Caitlin Conner is a shy, artistic teen. She has spent her entire life being compared to her popular older sister, Carly. When Carly dies in a car accident, things go from bad to worse for Caitlin. While dealing with the loss of their daughter , Caitlin's parents can't see beyond their own grief. This leaves Caitlin more alone than ever. However, this all changes when she begins a friendship with Dylan Rodgers.

Dylan is a "skater boy" who much like Caitlin just doesn't fit in with the popular crowd. He helps Caitlin deal with her grief , and somewhere along the way, the two fall in love. Caitlin;s mother has become very over protective of her since Carly's death, and she has forbidden her from dating. As a result, Caitlin begins to sneak behind her parent's back to be with Dylan. She finds sneaking around exciting, but how long can her luck last? Secrets always have a way of coming out. What will happen when her secrets are finally exposed?

Having lost my brother at a young age, I can totally relate to Caitlin. Much like Caitlin's parents, my parents were totally consumed by their own grief which left me to try and navigate my way through my own feelings of loss and loneliness.

This was a well written story that progressed at the perfect pace. I fell in love with Caitlin and found myself hoping she would find some happiness. If you are looking for a great read containing a mixture of angst, friendship, and love, you should give this book a try! *I was given a copy of this book as a gift from Stephanie's Book Reports in exchange for an honest review.

Caitlin I liked her, "I just want you to know. I'm not embarrassed to be with you. I just feel like if I tell my dad, he'll feel obligated to tell my mom. I just can't deal with it right now. Do you know what I mean?" Dylan I don't think he likes being a secret, "Dylan shrugged. "Better than your mom finding us on your bed making out." Caitlin that girl sometimes can't hold in how she feels she's so honest, and innocent and I liked that, "what are we going to do? I can't stop thinking about it. I want to go further. You've become my best friend, Dylan. I want to be with you like that. I need to feel what being that close to someone is like." Dylan you can tell that boy is inexperienced but he's willing to take one for his girl, "what if I come too fast? What if you don't enjoy it? What if I suck?" I really liked this book.

I found this book to a very nice read. It grabbed my attention at the beginning and kept it through until the end. I loved the progression of young love and the confusion and uncertainty that often times comes with it.

Caitlin and Dylan's story is one that begins with tragedy and ends with them overcoming many obstacles. It was very realistic in the events and brought to light a lot of conflicts and emotions that most of us never truly think deeply about.

The ending left you wondering just a bit. It could be the end of their story but there was a small opening in case this author wanted to go back and tell about the college years and the obstacles that come with that for this couple.

This book is definitely worth a read.
