It’s the feeling of starting again.
It’s the feeling of being free.
I’m running away from a life I don’t want anymore,
looking for a new life, that I’m not sure if someday, I will deserve it.
But for now, I’m here in between.
Between was is right and what I wish,
between my dreams and the reality on Earth.
I am here, living without regrets an adventure that never has been mine.
But until the moment is come, this will be enough for me.

I need to believe that.

            “When Autumn Collins finds herself accidentally locked in the library for an entire weekend, she doesn’t think things could get any worse. But that’s before she realizes that Dax Miller is locked in with her. Autumn doesn’t know much about Dax except that he’s trouble. Between the rumors about the fight he was in (and that brief stint in juvie that followed it) and his reputation as a loner, he’s not exactly the ideal person to be stuck with. Still, she just keeps reminding herself that it is only a matter of time before Jeff, her almost-boyfriend, realizes he left her in the library and comes to rescue her.
Only he doesn’t come. No one does.
Instead it becomes clear that Autumn is going to have to spend the next couple of days living off vending-machine food and making conversation with a boy who clearly wants nothing to do with her. Except there is more to Dax than meets the eye. As he and Autumn first grudgingly, and then not so grudgingly, open up to each other, Autumn is struck by their surprising connection. But can their feelings for each other survive once the weekend is over and Autumn’s old life, and old love interest, threaten to pull her from Dax’s side?”

The sweet, -everyone loves– girl and the broken wind boy are the perfect combination in one of the most complex stories written by Kasie West.”
            There is a lot going on here, drama, love, friendship and more. The author wrote about the value of the family in an excellent contrast between having everything and having nothing at all. The romance was fantastically built, piece by piece from scratch, and not the common teen love at first sight. Also there is tragedy, mental illness, commitment issues and jealousy.
            Autumn the protagonist has a strength hidden in the first half of the book. At the beginning she seemed to be easy going, the good girl. For years Autumn was forced to be someone else, to do what others want her to do, being so difficult for her to say no, always scared. As a typical teenager she wanted to belong, to be part of something amazing.
            Dax was the kind of character I personally enjoy to read about it.  A lost soul, a broken heart healed by love.
            The rest of the characters also were well developed. Each one playing an effective role in the story. Especially, I loved the mother, I felt connected with her and I understand her feelings.
            Moreover I loved that there weren’t a real antagonist, because the real villain, the one our protagonists needed to get over, was more simple and terrified at the same time. Fear.  
I believe this is the kind of story people need to read, full of hope and magic with a funny touch.
100% recommended.
            Best Phrases:
“That wasn’t an easy task either, to convince the boy who didn’t do commitment that we could be different.”

“I was the one who hadn’t accepted myself for who I was. I was the one who needed to be comfortable in my own skin. I hope I could do that, moving forward.”
