17+ "I love books that make you think ... & that is what this book did for me. I've grown because of this book. It has added to my life. & yes, I would say you should read it too and see what you may gain from reading as well. yes, I have to quote a bit from the acknowledgements "Go easy on your future self will ya!" I think we all need to listen to that. Give yourself a break. If you try, if you do your very best, no one can ask for any more." - Beth,Goodreads

Devastated by the death of her grandfather, six-year-old Kelly Rodgers barely manages to cope with the profound loss. Already facing issues at school, she finds herself spiraling deeper into despair, when a fateful interaction through the fence in her backyard gives her hope. In the years following, Kelly realizes that life’s tragedies can be dealt with through acceptance; until another series of agonizing events leaves her heart in pieces.
Finding herself thrown into new surroundings, Kelly embraces her life and resolves to never fall in love. That decision is easy to keep until her junior year when she is drawn by an unavoidable attraction to the new guy, tormented James Delaney. The moment he looks up at her and smiles, her body betrays her. And he notices. She is determined to avoid him, but soon Kelly is forced to face the inevitable truth: She doesn’t want to avoid James... and he won’t let her.
Even though tragedy always follows love.
