Amazon  |  Goodreads
Contemporary, 272 pages
Expected publication: April 3rd 2018 by Feiwel Friends
On the night of her high school graduation, Vale McKinley and her boyfriend Crawford are in a terrible car accident that leaves Crawford in a coma. They were supposed to spend the summer planning for college, for a bright future full of possibility. Together. Instead, Vale spends long days in the hospital, hoping Crawford will awaken.

Slate Allen, a college friend of Vale's brother, has been visiting his dying uncle at the same hospital. When he and Vale meet, she can't deny the flutter of an illicit attraction. She tries to ignore her feelings, but she's not immune to Slate's charm. Slowly, they form a cautious friendship.

Then, Crawford wakes up . . . with no memory of Vale or their relationship. Heartbroken, Vale opts to leave for college and move on with her life. Except now, she's in Slate's territory, and their story is about to take a very strange turn.

  1. I just got this from Harper Collins last week and I'm loving it so far. She's just about 2 chapters into getting to college.

  2. I finished the book feeling as if a large part of the story was missing. The synopsis/description states Crawford wakes up with no memory of Vale or their relationship. When does this happen. I was waiting and waiting. I couldn’t believe when it ended. I usually love Abbi Glines books but I’m disappointed.


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
