My rating: 3 of 5 stars
An enjoyable read. I loved seeing the “real” Colby, featured so often in other Dessen books. It made me want to be by the coast and luckily I had the opportunity to do just that while reading. I liked Emaline a lot, though my favourite character was actually Benji. The one thing stopping me from really loving this book was Theo. I just found him unbearable for such a central character. I much prefered Luke, is that allowed? The main story arc was interesting and the conclusion satisfying. I loved how Emaline grew as a character from start to finish. In all, a good read, perfect for holidays.
