Colt and Julia were secretly together for a year, and no one ever knew, not even Julia's boyfriend. Why would they-they were from two different crowds. Julia lived in her country club world and Colt . . . didn't. Then Julia dies in a car accident. Colt is devastated but can't mourn openly, and he's tormented that he may have played a part in her death. And when Julia's journal ends up in his hands, he is forced to relive their year together-just when he is trying to forget. The problem is, how do you get over someone who was never really yours to begin with?

I couldn't really connect with or care about...
Good quick read. It was one of thosr books that took no time to get through, but at the end you wish it was longer so it didn't feel so rushed at parts. Honestly my heart broke for Colt and the fact that he was grieving alone, but it also yerned to get to know him a little better. I felt like we k...
