Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay It was a decent book but the end kind of left some unanswered questions.. questions I wanted answered. Overall though I wouldn't recommend it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I Expected Better This book was alright, but I read it after reading How to Save a Life (also by Zarr) which I really enjoyed, and this one did not live up to expectations. The characters in this were less intriguing and I wasn't that into the plot either.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Different and exciting I really liked this book although I have to agree the ending surprised me from any other teen romance. Although I have to say I liked the book a bit more because of this, not every romance has a happy ending. I would have loved to see them end up together. It was sad but it was real and its what happens to teen girls no matter the connection between the person. It was captivating every part of it. It was very deep and a mystery which I liked at parts. Cameron was an ideal type of guy any girl would want and she was what any girl would like to be. A good read for sure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really good! *spoiler?* This book was realy good, the only part that I didn't like how Jenna(Jennifer) and Cameron didn't end up together! Besides that, It was great and fun to read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Brilliant!! (spoilers) I loved this book, read it all in an hour and I just loved it. :) I wished there was a more definite ending, it never really says if Jennifer (Jenna) and Cameron do end up together. But I still love it. :) Its pretty predictable, as far as what happened in the past, but the story its self was unexpected. The characters were great, and the whole book was written really well. Its really sad, at many points I found myself crying but I still recommend this book. :)
