Personally, I didn't really like this book. The main character was rather.... weak. Also, it is a little bit dirty, so I would suggest that younger readers not read this. If you like other Elizabeth Scott books, though, you might like it.

Another great Elizabeth Scott book. I felt for the characters. It starts off slow but when it gets good, it's really good.

I really like Scott's books, and i found this one interesting and sweet as well. Eli was absolutely cute and I found i could relate easily to Abby too. It is slow but there are lots of emotion in there that the author is known for. :D

I really enjoy Elizabeth Scott's books and thought this was another great book. I really liked how the characters are intertwined in this book and Bloom. It was interesting to find out what happened to Katie and Dave in Bloom... If you are going to read this book, I suggest reading "Bloom" by Elizabeth Scott first. You will understand once you read both books in the proper order... Enjoy!

This one has to be the least favourite of all of the e-scott books—simply because I wished there was more depth to the story. I found the characters likeable enough, and was surprised to find out that this took place in the future, where Lauren's best friend's daughter is the main character. When Elizabeth mentioned it relating to Bloom, I didn't expect that. So that was fun to read about. But there wasn't the usual Scott 'zing' to it that I wanted, but I can't find myself hating it either. 1, because Eli was absolutely adooorable to Abby :) Very sweet and cute, and 2, because...I don't think it's ever possible for me to HATE one of Elizabeth Scott's books :)
