*I received a copy from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for an honest review.*
First of all, I really loved the cover of this book. I completely fell in love with Stacey and Calvin’s relationship. I loved that the author showed us both of the main characters minds, letting us know what each character was thinking and feeling. Self esteem issues affect a lot of people today because there is a certain image put out there of what you need to be to be “perfect.” Calvin is amazing because he loves unconditionally. Despite his own problems, he risks everything to save her life. He is not perfect, which makes him real. I feel like this book would give a great view into the mind of one who is suffering. I also think that there are few guys out there that could learn a lot from the character Calvin on how to treat a young girl even when he can not understand everything about her. You won’t regret reading this book.
