This novel revolves around the lives of two teenagers named Skylar and Josh. Skylar is a girl who has high hopes to fulfill her ambitions in Creek View. She doesn't desire to be the average woman, with a regular job and household duties. On the other hand, Josh is a boy who holds interest in joining the Marines. They both thought their lives were planned out until everything begins to crumble. Skylar learns she can't afford the art school she's always wanted to go to. Josh experiences a physical injury that stops him from pursuing his career. Soon, they both connect with one other, deeper and deeper, as they work at the same place. Skylar is my favorite character because of how determined and hopeful she is about her future. I would rate this book a 10 out of 10.

This book is an amazing book ! My favorite character was Skylar, which is the main character. Skylar hopes to become an artist, an art teacher, anything to do with art. Some things happen to prevent her dreams from coming true, and Skylar fights through it. At a graduation party Skylar sees Josh. Josh, who used to be a really goofy kid, comes back from Afghanistan a different person. He lost his leg there. My favorite part of the book was when Skylar and Josh were at the fireworks show... and it was just beautiful! I would recommend this book to friends and rate it an 8 out of 10.
