Believe the hype. This is a really great YA read. The lead characters, Noah & Echo, had me rooting for them from the beginning. I wanted to throttle Echo's parents. Talk about selfish! And don't even get me started on how much Ashley annoyed me. I immediately took a liking to Mrs. Collins. I loved her approach. Now for Noah! His story broke my heart. Is it weird that I sympathized with him even more than Echo? He is boyfriend book material! Sexy and tortured? CHECK! I fell in love with the idea of Noah & Echo saving each other. Loved these two! Glad I finally sat down with this one. Can I just put out into the atmosphere that a sequel for this couple could totally be justified.
