I love this book and it will forever be on my read over and over shelf.The characters are what make this story. Every last one of them is just trying to live life...they are real. I loved Eddie. She was supportive and fun. Maybe a little crazy but i loved her. I have no words about Will...from the first date with Layken i was caught. He is the right mix of responsible adult and swoony boy. I never considered myself big into poetry but was moved by the pieces within the story. I absolutely believe that music can tell a story and the fact that Hoover ties the music of The Avett Brothers into the book is perfect.I will be diving into the next book as soon as I finish this review. I recommend this for anyone who loves a good story, some angst, and swoon.
