From Goodreads:
Flynn: At first we were almost strangers. But ever since I moved to New York, Amos was the one person I could count on. And together we were there for Poppy. (I mean, what kind of parents leave their kid to be raised by a nanny?) I just didn’t expect to fall for him—and I never expected him to leave us.

Amos: I thought I was the only one who felt it. I told myself it was because we were spending so much time together—taking care of Poppy and all. But that night, I could tell she felt it, too. And I freaked out—you’re not supposed to fall for your stepsister. So I ran away to boarding school. I should have told her why I was leaving, but every time I tried, it felt like a lie.

One missed flight was about to change their lives forever….

The cover is SO pretty and perfect.

I couldn’t wait to read this. Then I changed my mind for some reason and forgot why, so I decided to read it because the cover WAS SO PRETTY. 

And then I remembered why I decided not to read it.

The main character is into her stepbrother. They didn’t grow up together and their parents are probably splitting up anyway, but that did NOT make me feel better about their mutual crushes on each other. It was a little too close to incest for me and I am not interested in finishing it.
