Grief and the service of our armed forces are at the center of this story. The author tells a tale that is heartbreaking good. I felt this family was in desperate need of help. Poor Madalynne. When her brother is killed she changed a great deal with her future goals now not so clear, Maddy needs to grieve. This loss coupled with the teen angst had me really emotional. Maddy and Parker are now facing a huge battle. Parker is still healing from his brothers suicide, which is bad enough and then the reveal. Why did he take his own life? SO gripping.
The author takes you on a grief journey with these two lovers and their parents. The author gives the direct point of views of both Maddy and Parker. Their world is too familiar nowadays. We as Americans see this type of event happen way too much. How can these two accomplish anything and be able to move on? Well the author takes you and guides you to the path towards healing.
There are a few characters that play a pivotal role here like Jacqueline and Lee. The two of them come into the story and bring even more angst. I really loved this book and I hope for a lot more from the author
