Set apart from other eighteen year olds, Ana Hughes knows she is different. A life threatening heart condition smothers her future and she yearns to feel normal. Her hopes are pinned on a fresh start in a remote town far from her native Colorado. Among the locker filled hallways in Clark Bend High, Ana keeps to the shadows, not wanting to draw attention to her violet tinged lips and wilted silhouette. And she almost succeeds, until she meets Chance Morgan.
Struggling to keep up appearances, she soon suspects Chance is hiding something as well. His animal-like senses, miraculous healing ability and peculiar reaction to her Thunderbird necklace compels Ana to question if there's more to the stories about his Navajo ancestry. Without any other explanation, she fears he is playing tricks on her. But the truth may prove too much for Ana's delicate heart...

This was the sweetest freakin’ thing
I don’t remember ever checking the page number and being *overwhelmingly happy* that there are a lot of pages left. This story was so freaking cute. You’ll love the characters, I promise you that. The writing’s a bit iffy at first, but you can tell that the author grows throughout the story.
I shall eagerly look forward to anything and everything else Natasha Brown writes.
So so good!
This book was so good. I have to say thought it made me cry. In a little over a month it will have been a year since my grandfather died unexpectedly of a heart attack. So, when they use that as Nyiol’s unexpected death it hit a little to close to home. Nonetheless though, this book was amazing
Sweet book with some mystery and adventure
Ana is a senior in high school who has met her first true crush and plans to keep her “secret” hidden from him and others for as long as possible so that she can have the “normal” senior year she dreams of living. It turns out Chance is no ordinary guy and he holds a secret of his own. Ultimately their love and devotion to one another is proven.
The story moves along nicely and was a book I didn’t want to put down, yet it seemed to get more glitchy toward the end. I read the intro to book two, but was not hooked enough to pursue more.
