After a year in juvenile jail, Caleb’s free...if freedom means endless nagging from a transition coach and the prying eyes of the entire town. Coming home should feel good, but his family and ex-girlfriend seem like strangers.
Caleb and Maggie are outsiders, pigeon-holed as "criminal" and "freak". Then the truth emerges about what really happened the night of the accident and, once again, everything changes. It’s a bleak and tortuous journey for Caleb and Maggie, yet they end up finding comfort and strength from a surprising source: each other.

Would you try another book from Simone Elkeles and/or Nicholas Mondelli?
Yes, I would. I plan on reading the second book Return to Paradise.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
Well the ending leaves you hanging a bit. Truths are revealed and the characters grew as the book continued, but you're left slightly dissatisfied with the ending.
What three words best describe Nicholas Mondelli’s voice?
What audible forgets is there are two narrators: Nicholas Mondelli plays Caleb and Elizabeth Cottle plays Maggie. I can't do this in three words... both portrayed their characters well. They tapped into their struggles and romance making the listener believe what is happening.
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
I'm not sure. I think there would have to be a combination of book 1 and 2 together for the movie to be worth my time. Or the ending would need to change. I hate open ended movies and unfortunately this is the type of book they would only make one of the two books because it wouldn't do well in the box office so you will be left forever wondering what happens to the characters.
Any additional comments?
Overall, this book is worth a read for young adults or older adults. I was in the mood for a light romance, and I didn't actually get a light book but it was worth reading.
