"What does waiting do? None of us are promised a tomorrow. We learned that, didn't we? We don't always get a later."
Word of advice: Never read this while out in public. I was a complete blubbering, sniffling mess of a person. My heart still aches.
One choice can change your life forever. We never really think about the consequences of life or anything in general while we were teenagers. We thought we ruled the world and could outsmart fate at every corner. And we eventually find out how wrong we were.

This was a phenomenal book. I cried so ugly at work while reading this. There was no one to talk to about this and I needed to vent and cry some more. Parts of this book were intense and breaks your heart. This book took my breath away and I was honestly speechless. My words can't convey how heavy this was. You'll just have to fall in love and cry right along with the rest of us on release day!
