Elsie Porter is an average 20-something, and yet what happens to her is anything but ordinary. On a rainy New Year's Day, she heads out to pick up a pizza for one. She isn't expecting to see anyone else in the shop, much less the adorable and charming Ben Ross. Their chemistry is instant and electric. Within weeks the two are head over heels in love. By May they've eloped. Only nine days later, Ben is out riding his bike when he is hit by a truck and killed on impact. At the hospital she must face Susan, the mother-in-law she has never met - and who doesn't even know Elsie exists.
"Touching and powerful...Reid masterfully grabs hold of the heartstrings and doesn't let go. A stunning first novel." (Publishers Weekly)

Wish someone had warned of the HORRIBLE narrator!
- Katpearl "My aunt was the librarian in our town, I've been reading since I was 5! Books were my besties in grade school. Reading is exercise 4 R minds"
This book is a super nova! Out of this world
Ben, he was almost otherworldly in his awesomeness. He had this magnetism about him that even in his weaker moments, you were still head over heels for this fictional character.
This book is a super nova, if you've read the book, then you'll understand the analogy.
Who doesn't want a love like Ben & Ellsie share? A love so pure, raw, exhilarating, and true that it will make you feel as if you shouldn't be reading someone else's diary, but darling, please continue, you won't be sorry.
This does down as one of the best love stories I've ever read. I could see where the author could be compared to Nicholas Sparks.
