Synopsis from Goodreads
While adjusting to her new life on a tiny island, off the coast of Maine, sixteen-year-old Willow Flynn begins to enjoy the hot and carefree summer days most teenagers dream about.

Willow has only two priorities before the start of her junior year of high school: making money at her first real job and spending the rest of her free time with her boyfriend, Michael.

But dreams have a way of crashing, especially when a serious illness threatens the very survival of the boy she has come to love, the boy she’s begun to trust and the boy she cannot live without.

This book was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review.
This book is the sequel to Julie Ann Knudsen's book In The Middle of Nowhere which I read and reviewed last month. I have to say that I enjoyed the first one more than this one. The writing was still good and there were some new characters who were interesting. My problem though was the main character. I just found Willow to be a hard character to read. This is something which I also felt in the first book, however in this one it just felt worse to me. I think my major issue was the fact that there was constant jelousy between Willow and Michael, no matter how many times each of them said that they only loved the other, there just wasn't any trust between them, and honestly that wound me up.
As far as the rest of the book goes, it was just sort of ok for me. I am pleased I got the chance to read these books, and as I said the writing style is really good. I simple just had an issue with the main character, but that's just my personal feelings.
