    Additional Comments
    I love it and I still do. This is one of the few books that I will ever read more then once and trust me there a very few books I would read more then once and I read a lot. I think anyone would love reading this book the character's are very realistic and have there own quirks. The main character Avery has an amazing personality. I also hope that Sarah Cross is working on the sequel because I want more
