Libby lost both her mom and sister in a car crash and hasn't seen her dad in over a year, because he just can't handle the grief. She's forced to live with her awful aunt who could not car less about her. He life is pretty far from perfect to say the least.
Then she meets Peter who has a life the total opposite of hers. He's a rock star and has an awesome family that can be a little smothering with all the time they spend together on tour.
When they meet each other it is so refreshing for them both. Neither of them know where the past has taken them or where the present has them. They just know the other is someone who is fun to talk to. They quickly connect and want to keep up a friendship.
To say the least this book was really good. It was deep and touching. I wished there was a sequel. I want to see where life takes these characters in the future. Read this book.
Libby, poor..poor Libby. A beautiful young girl still attending high school in a beat down town living in a beat down house with a beat down and absolutely crazy aunt. Libby is everything that someone would want in a companion, soul-mate and best friend. Libby does not take anything for granted. The most simple of gifts and gestures make their way down deep into her heart and soul. Libby becomes strong and capable but still fragile in a way that only Peter can sense. "Libby was more beautiful than any movie star. She just didn't know it, which he loved about her."
Peter, gorgeous front man of a popular boy band. All about the family and his music. Peter doesn't know what normalcy in a relationship is anymore because he can never weed out all of the crazy girls until he meets the gorgeous and sweet Libby. Libby had never even heard of Peter before this chance meeting in the park. Perfection.
Libby needs to break away from her crazy drug yielding aunt and get the heck out of that good for nothing town. Everything thinks that she is crazy but I knew better throughout the book. Libby is a fighter, a survivor and I am so proud and scared for her when she leaves and goes out onto her own. Libby finds herself and finds love a long the way.
I was so upset with Peters family at how hard they were being on young love but I can completely understand it. I think that I would be giving him a hard time too just because they fell in love so fast but ultimately I was still rooting for them to be together. I HATED when Libby was in the home for troubled youth...eeeeeeeeek. The thoughts of those vicious people make me cringe. Libby was so beautiful like flower and I was always told..Never bend the petals on a rose. Tender-Love-Care..that's all Libby needed/wanted and she deserved that and more.
The ending was just as beautiful as the entire story. In fact, it was perfect. I would not have changed a single thing. I was on the edge of my seat thinking about the thoughts of these two possibly not making it work. "Listen," he said gently and stepped closer. "No one can predict the future, but right now you're the most important thing to me. I would regret it for the rest of my life if we didn't give this a chance."
I cannot even choose a better word for this brilliant book.."beautiful" just resonates within it. This book is soft and emotionally challenging from time to time..It will have you laughing and crying and yelling but in the end I am sure that you will love this book just as much as I do.
I give this book 4 stars easily. If you're looking for a compelling read with a hot musician and a nearly perfect but troubled girl..this is the one for you.
Note: I have yet to read the other books to this series but I promise you all that I will because I can't see this author disappointing after reading this adorable and well written book. *I'm a fan*

Review done by KT on ktreads.com :)
Libby is a loner. She lives with the town's crazy person and has no one else to care for her. Peter is in a popular band and never has a minute to himself. They meet for the first time when Peter's family stops to eat lunch at a nature preserve, on their way to the next tour stop. He made her stomach flutter and she couldn't even find the words to say when he asked her a question. She had no idea who this guy was. She doesn't watch TV nor a radio, why would she? And for the first time in his life, Peter can actually be himself. The encounter ends all too quickly and they plan to meet there again. She's pretty sure she'll never see him again. He's pretty sure their next encounter won't get here fast enough.
Over time, they continue talking and seeing each other and easily fall in love. Peter wants to rescue Libby from the hell in which she lives. But before that can happen, his family gets involved and does something cruel. Peter has no idea what is going on and can't get a hold of Libby. She is left heartbroken and very confused. Soon the life around Libby worsens and she is taken away from her home and any chance Peter has of finding her again. Libby is gone, in the wind. Peter is furious and depressed. He was all she had and now she has nothing.
Many months pass and Libby has found a home in Georgia. She has a place to sleep, work and clothes to wear. In the meantime, Peter is trying to come up with a way to find her. Peter's family is now doing everything in their power to help. And, the plan they come up with is awesome and beautiful. But how will Libby find out that they are even searching for her?
I loved this story so much! I felt the pain of loss and the joy of love with this young couple. I recommend this story if you are looking for a great, quick read. Join in on their adventure and enjoy the story of Libby and Peter.
