I crawled into Ryan Jensen's bed that first night by accident.
I barely knew him. I thought it was his sister's bed—her room. It took seconds to realize my error, and I should've left...
I didn't. I didn't jump out. I didn't get embarrassed.
And that night, in that moment, it was the only thing I craved.
I asked to stay. He let me, and I slept.
The truth? I never wanted to leave his bed. If I could've stayed forever, I would have.
He became my sanctuary.
Because—four hours earlier—my twin sister killed herself.

Reading this book took me on a tailspin. I cried with her, I laughed with her, and I felt the destruction that she tried not to cause. She experiences a loss that many people wouldn’t have been able to come back from. And she mentally checks out while all these different things are going on around her to destroy her. And in the midst of her grieving she meets this guy who understands the pain she has been feeling. He understands it better than she thinks and he is the one that she opens up to. And of course he just has to be popular so add in the mean girl and it sounds like a typical high school drama. But this book is so much more than typical. It will break your heart and then in the end you will be put back whole. This book is tragic, love, death, romance, and acceptance all in one. You will literally feel where she is coming from with every choice that she makes. And you will understand that although she’s in high school she is grieving and she is looking for acceptance. If i could rate this book higher than a 5 I would because it was that powerfully good.
Absolutely amazing. Definitely did NOT expect the ending and it gets me every single time!
What a ending and I did go back and read it again afterwards. It definitely made me think & the end definitely shred my soul. I see why Tijan had a hard time writing it and I’m glad she published it.
