I give it - 4/5
My review - What a wonderful story.
This is a book you can just pick up and read in the evening and not put it down until you've finished. You will get swept up in the story.
Rose and Theo are two different people. Rose has parents who work long hours, left to her own devices, strong minded, smart, she doesn't like to go off track or do anything that might cause trouble. Theo is mystery. He disappears, the gossip of the girls at school, good looking, and there is missing flyers out for him and people are thinking the worst.
Until, he turns up at Rose's door one night.
Why her house? Why her? Rose has so many questions and wants to know what Theo is hiding. Why did he go missing and why did her choose her?
Rose breaks some her rules letting him stay. But, she wants to figure him out. Over a several days the two form a bond. They share secrets, their dreams, what they're really feeling, how they deal with certain things and so much more.
A story of feeling lost and finally being found. A story of the unexpected. With things starting to get serious and more coming out about finding Theo they must confront what is happening and Theo needs to talk about why he ran in the first place.
A wonderful novel that you will just love and make you root for these two!
