Sasha is the only survivor of a car crash that killed her parents and older sister. It happened when she was 13. She is now 17, lives with her aunt (her mother's sister) and uncle, and hasn't been able to speak since the wreck. She uses an electronic talking device where she types in what she wants to say and it speaks for her. Sasha has successfully alienated almost everyone she goes to school with except her best friend, Jules.
Sasha has gone to therapy with Dr. O since the wreck and still hasn't regained memories of her life before, the accident, or her voice.
Then Ben walked into her life. Wow. Ben. *dreamy sigh* I kept waiting for him to be a figment of Sasha's imagination or a ghost from another era. He is so perfect in every way.
The only complaint I have about this book, and it's a big one, is that Sasha didn't report the incident that brought Ben into her life. I'm very upset about that. Okay, maybe one more. What is up with Ben's parents? Is there a sequel coming soon that explains them? Ben told Sasha they had special gifts like he did, but their gifts never materialized in this story.
Overall, I really liked this book. I can't wait for it to be published so I can try to get it for my library. I'm not usually a fan of contemporary books, but this one had *just* enough paranormal for me to be able to get into it.
I will recommend this book to students who devour Nicholas Sparks novels.
