✯5 Emotionally Charged Stars!!!

I'm not sure where to start this review. I finished this a few days ago and have been looking at the computer screen for hours now. I fee like no matter what I write it won't do this book, this incredible story justice.  Before I start I'm going to tell if this is NOT a standalone and can't be read as one.

Both Side A and Side B ended on cliffhangers. Now, we're getting the conclusion to this incredible story. Mel, is dealing with so many emotions. Her life as well as the rest of their families were never the same. We do know they've lost Belle. Every. Single. Person are all trying to cope with whats happened. Theres that one word question going through everyones heads. Why? Why them? 

But, like Noah has said his whole life. Fate. Everything happens for a reason. Whenever somebody is questioning this that's what they get. Like, Noah and Sawyer's mom always says "the only way out is through" and its so true on so many different levels.

I refuse to say much because I'd be livid if someone gave away any details to me. This story is about friends who are family. A family trying to grieve and live at the same time. There are times they don't see eye to eye. And, I got mad at Mel a time or two. But, understood.

I've read a lot of book my lifetime. There are some that have stayed with me and other ones that don't. This book. This series will. It's one that'll be in my top 10. It's in my top 10 of gut wrenching book and top 10 tear jerkers. Dee has such  a way of making you so invested in the characters lives. You feel like you know them and want to be friends with the girls and in a relationship with the guys. 

I'm glad I read this story. I really wish Darren gets a book. He's one tough guy. Who is a fantastic dad, friend and brother. I am hoping we get more from this group.   

Heather's Review

5 Unbelievable Stars(but it deserves so much more!!!)

I need to start by saying that this is the hardest review I have ever had to write! One, because this book touched home for me, and two, because, how am I supposed to say much without giving away a very vital part of the story that you need to read yourself? This is not a series that you can pick up in the middle of. If you haven’t already, you need to read the first two books first (Side A and Side B). If you have already read them, then you know that Amelia has had a tough life and all she wanted to do was face her fears of losing the ones she loved and to live a happy and healthy life with her new family. However, at the end of Side B, we know that they get into a terrible accident and Belle died right away. There is SO MUCH more to this that I can’t divulge without completely giving away the entire plot of this book. In the first two books, we go between past and present and you know that the author is building up to something big, something terrible. My gut told me I already knew what was going to happen, and my gut was spot on. The third book continues to jump between past and present, until everything catches up and it is all set in present time. This is a book you can’t read without an entire box of tissues and your loved ones close by to hug tight. You will thank me! This is a MUST read series and I have a new found love for the author for doing such a great job at capturing the grieving process of losing ones close to you and for showing how there is still hope and miracles that surround us!
