Two and a half years after an unspeakable tragedy left her a shadow of the girl she once was, Nastya Kashnikov moves to a new town determined to keep her dark past hidden and hold everyone at a distance. But her plans only last so long before she finds herself inexplicably drawn to the one person as isolated as herself: Josh Bennett. Josh's story is no secret. Every person he loves has been taken from his life until, at seventeen years old, there is no one left. When your name is synonymous with death, everyone tends to give you your space. Everyone except Nastya who won't go away until she's insinuated herself into every aspect of his life. But as the undeniable pull between them intensifies, he starts to wonder if he will ever learn the secrets she's been hiding, or if he even wants to.--From back cover.… (més)

This book was absolutely beautiful. It wasn't just a pretty story; it wasn't very pretty at all. But the writing was lovely, and the voices of the teenagers were wonderful: snarky, honest, pained. I have so much to say, but I need to process. ( )

Loved it!!!!

After two disappointing reads this was like a breath of fresh air, but don't misunderstand: this story earned five stars all by itself!

The author did an amazing job in developing Nastya and Josh relationship: no improbable and out of nowhere love at first sight for them, oooh no, but a slow and thoughtful progress from mutual interest to love...I really dig this!
Also her characters are really well wrote and amazingly real and I'm not just referring to the main ones, even those that should have been in the background really stood out (Drew and Clay for example!).

I wholly recommend this! ( )

Took me a long time to get into the story. It had a payoff in the end but not as enjoyable as I had hoped based on other reviews. ( )

The characters kept me engaged even when I didn't want to keep going. ( )

I loved this book. It meant so much to me. Of course there are some things that doesn't really make sense to me, like everyone having a form of art that they excell in (basically just are the best in what the do). You can do several arts and be average in all of them, it doesn’t mean that you're a worse person or not fitting for a book. Also the ending kind of ruined it a bit for me, the idea that everything had to come together to this almost normal-nice life for the main character Sunshine (dunno what to call her??). Just a little bit too intricate, it disappointed me. But other than that; WOW. I don't know how to describe it. I struggled so much this week with hospital tests coming back after kind of giving up on them finding anything and then it being spmething other and worse than expected. You know that mix of hope, relief and grief? That's what I felt and it’s all over this book too. Also books including piano is always a plus. 5 stars with a hint of doubt because of the ending. ( )

Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

Where do you start a review on a book that is so powerfully written? A book that helps heal? Not very often do you come across a story that takes your heart and rips it right out of your chest. One that is so deep that you feel the raw emotions of the characters that hold you in their grasp until the very end. A story that takes the harshness of the world, the horror, the imperfections; showing us that if we are strong enough to survive we can find hope and love. It gives us our dreams along with a second chance.

The relationship between Josh and Nastya builds slowing. Both loners both have had much tragedy in their young lives. Josh proves to be a very special seventeen year old boy showing that he survives in spite of all that life has thrown at him. Even though he is quiet he is very protective, caring and respectful of the boundaries that Nastya has set up. Nastya on the other hand just longs for a friendship no questions asked. One where she can keep the secrets from the past hidden.

As this friendship grows into more it is like two old souls sharing a lifetime of tragedy with each other. Once in a while a book comes along that captures you heart and for me this is that book. Even though it is a young adult book it is one that spans and speaks to those of all ages. Having worked in the school system for a number of years I would have loved to have had this book while talking to the many young people that came to me with their problems. If my boys were readers had this book been around I would have made them read it, I still just might do that. I went through some tough times during my younger years also. While reading this book it touched those dark areas for me giving me the chance to bring them out and heal. Wow! Is all I can say…? This is a book that everyone needs to buy and keep on their shelf after reading. Ms. Millay has an emotional story full of cathartic healing elements. A must have for everyone. A keeper for everyone. I only wish I would have come across this earlier.

Favorite Quote: “Dying isn’t so bad after you’ve done it once. And I have. I’m not afraid of death anymore. I’m afraid of everything else.”
