What can I say about this book… it was beyond words. This book caused me to have a book hangover for almost 2 weeks!!! It is so emotionally moving that I just couldn’t stop thinking about it. So now that we have my outlook on it out of the way let me tell you a little about this book.
Candace is the strong heroine of the book, she is a college girl whose works because she wants the responsibliity not because she has to. Kimber is her best girlfriend, Jason (Jase) is her best friend, Mark is Jase’s boyfriend ok now you’ve met the inital people in the book. Candace and her mom do not get along at all, they butt heads at every turn including what Candace is going to major in, which is ballet. Candace is planning on graduating and going to join a dance company in New York.
To make her mom happy she accepts a date from a guy at the country club while her mom watches. As dates go it is ok, not bad but not great so she decides to give it a couple more tries. In the next couple of dates some things happen that change her life forever! It causes her to start depending on Jase A LOT! She tells him everything and runs to him at the slightest issue. Her dancing is affected and as she is getting ready for her big solo piece that is dark and very emotional and requires total concentration and feeling. So much feeling that she isn’t sure she can do it.
While Jase and Mark love her and completely understand what is going on with her they both know she needs to start getting out with people again. So they take her to a private concert with a small number of people and she meets Ryan. A guy who has a connecction to her past but neither one knows it. They both have issues that they need to work through to help them both move on through their pasts.
I give this 5+ stars hands down, you have to read this one!
