At a time when darkness consumes their lives, Hadie and Lincoln learn that hope and love can still be found in the most unlikely place.
So I really liked the beginning of the book - so much so that I wish I had read the first one. The love story was cute, but Lincoln was hiding something. I suspected mental illness, but I was wrong. When I found out what he was hiding, I wasn't pleased. It didn't seem like there were enough clues leading to that revelation, and it got really dramatic really fast. It was almost like there were two books in one because the tone changed so much. I think that had the book been longer, that would have been fixed. I hope there's another book, and I hope that in that book Eddie finds love. I felt so bad for him in this book! He seems like a really interesting character.
