Ms. Schroeder has done it again. The second I could get my hands on her new novel-in-verse, I found a cozy spot and read the entire thing start to finish. And there was crying.
Amber’s life is about to change in a big way. So she wants one more perfect day to herself. She leaves a note for her family and hops on a bus to the beach. And then she meets Cade. Immediate attraction ensues. Cade and Amber spend a perfect day together. But Cade has some issues himself.
The book is well-written and moving. The words, though few, are jam-packed with emotion. It may not take you long to read this one, but it will stay with you for a long time. I highly recommend this one to you.
