-- My Thoughts --
Whitney is still recovering from the death of her best friend. She has to get her life back on track, but she has no idea why. And it isn't easy when she doesn't remember some parts of her past. Then there's her best friend's boyfriend, Kyle, who might be the key to unlocking her memory, or the sweet, careful Evan, who might be the key to unlocking her heart. But before Whitney can find out anything, she has to find herself.
Okay, so the aspect is not really original. I didn't expect it to be original, so I was not disappointed. It's a bit too predictable for my liking. Like, I figured out the little twist at the end way before the main character did. Come on, it was right in front of her eyes! The second thing is that Whitney didn't really connect with me. I wanted to feel something for her, even sympathy, but nothing. So, I didn't really care about what happened to her. But I did love Evan, he's the reason that kept me going through this book to finish it.
I can't find anything more to say about this novel. Yes, it dragged at parts. And yes, it was a bit boring. But the main focus of this novel is moving on from the past. Which is a subject I LOVE. Since there are so many ways to approach the aspect, and Coleen Patrick nailed it. The ending was satisfying. You get all you wanted and more. While this book didn't make it on my list of favorites, i will definitely be on the lookout for the author's new books. No two people think the same about a book, so try this out for yourself!
