"In one impulsive moment the summer before they leave for college, overachievers Scarlett and David plunge into an irresistible swirl of romance, particle physics, and questionable decisions. Scarlett and David have known each other all their lives in small-town Graceville, Colorado, where David is just another mountain in the background, until, one day, he is suddenly so much more than part of the landscape. Magnetic, spontaneous, David is a gravitational force. And Scarlett, pragmatic, wry, eye on the future, welcomes the whirlwind he brings even as she resists it. Moving between the present and the past, this is the story of a seemingly grounded girl who's pulled into a lightning-strike romance with an electric-charged boy, and the enormity of the aftermath. Smart, bold, and unconventionally romantic, Shana Youngdahl's debut explores grief, guilt, and reconciling who you think you need to be with the person you've been all along. It's an aching, transporting reminder that between the past that shapes us and the unknowable future, we have only the present to forgive ourselves and forge ahead"--Dust jacket.

I'm not sure if I've ever read a book that kept me in a state of melancholy from beginning to end, while interspersed with bouts of bone-deep grief. Although it might be more my personal response to the book, rather than a universal one. Regardless, the story was not only impressive by the emotional reactions it evoked, but also in the way the author kept me surprisingly captivated with her non-linear storytelling. Honestly, I'm having a hard time giving this book justice since I was so emotionally invested. I guess that speaks for itself. While I might not 100% embrace the liberal stance to various aspects in the story, it was beautifully conveyed with timely messages for today's older, young adult.
