Young adult novel, I really enjoyed this book, though I thought it was drawn out a bit. The ending was very dramatic and left me wanting to read the next book in the series.

The characters are so non-credible, it hurts. The writing is painfully bad, too. At the latest when you read about the 20th kiss description you will believe me....

An amazing book that will literally take your breath away. Emma is such an amazing charater, the things she goes through are unbeilevable yet true. I can't wait until the library purchases the next book.
