Summary: Meg Haston's romantic and thrilling new YA novel explores a star-crossed high school relationship in a tale rife with deeply buried secrets and shocking revelations.
Bridge and Wil have been entangled in each other’s lives for years. Under the white-hot Florida sun, they went from kids daring each other to swim past the breakers to teenagers stealing kisses between classes. But when Bridge betrayed Wil during their junior year, she shattered his heart and their relationship along with it.
Then Wil’s family suffers a violent loss, and Bridge rushes back to Wil’s side. As they struggle to heal old wounds and start falling for each other all over again, Bridge and Wil discover just how much has changed in the past year. As the fierce current of tragedy threatens to pull them under, they must learn how to swim on their own—or risk drowning together.
My Thoughts: I was really torn on this one. We are introduced to Wil and Bridge. They have been friends since they were kids, and then got romantically involved, and then things didn’t turn out quite how they wanted it too.
I really liked Bridge and Wil both but at times, I was hesitant to like either of them. Each had their ups and downs to their personalities. I really enjoyed the plot of this one. Wil’s dad isn’t who everyone thought he was, and there was more to the story. And when it all comes out, Wil knows what he must do and it’s hard for him. It’s hard to really even admit his dad wasn’t the perfect guy everyone thought he was. And Wil is afraid he’ll be just like him. This one was complicated as heck!
This one really pulled at my heartstrings. It was just so emotional and having lost people in my life, I understood the heartbreak.
I liked this one, and while reading it I needed to know what happened next. I haven’t read Paperweight yet by this author, so I will add that to my list!
Overall: I’m not sure if I ever really liked Bridge or Wil. This one did make me tear up a few times but at others, I wanted to throw something! HAHAHA. I’d say this is probably more between a 3.5 and 4 cupcake rating for me!
Cover: Love it! It’s so romantic. I really like it!
