Every love story has a breaking point... From the author of Paperweight comes the star-crossed romance of two high school friends in a tale rife with deeply buried secrets and shocking revelations.

BEFORE: Bridge and Wil have been entangled in each other's lives for years. Under the white-hot Florida sun, they went from kids daring each other to swim past the breakers to teenagers stealing kisses between classes. But when Bridge betrayed Wil during their junior year, she shattered his heart and their relationship along with it.

AFTER: When Wil's family suffers a violent loss, and Bridge rushes back to Wil's side. As they struggle to heal old wounds and start falling for each other all over again, Bridge and Wil discover just how much has changed in the past year. Though they once knew each other's every secret, they aren't the same people they used to be. Bridge can't imagine life without Wil, but sometimes love isn't enough. Can they find their way back to each other, or will this be the end of their story?

I did enjoy this book as a way to think of situations from different perspective. I think that was the appropriate structure to bring the story across. The book was fairly predicable with the drama that Meg laid out. If this was a movie I wouldn't be inclined to watch it but as a book it was an easy Saturday read. For a teenage love story drama, an overall well written novel.

I would have loved this way more if at any point Haston tackled the fact that Wil and Bridge are horribly unhealthy as a couple. This is why you don't make grand, nearly mythical stories about you and your boyfriend and how you're destined to be together no matter what, kids. I felt like at times Haston brushed up against the unhealthy aspect, but it was never said explicitly and other characters sort of let it slide (save for one near the end that made me hope the codependent, unhealthy aspect would be dealt with, but it was not.)

Still, Haston definitely has a knack for getting the emotions behind a story and characters right, so that made it easy to get invested even as I was like "get these kids away from each other."

Wil and Bridge have known and grown up together since the fourth grade. They went from being kids playing on the beach to the perfect couple to nothing. After a drunken mistake made by Bridge, they never talk to one other again until a horrible accident happens to Wil’s family and Wil needs Bridge more then ever. Together they struggle to heal old wounds. But a lot can happen in a year, so will they be able to move past those things and have the future they always wanted?
This book was really amazing because it had the perfect mix of happy and sad times. There was a huge twist near the end that I didn't see coming but I think really made the book. Rating 3 out of 5 stars.

Bridge and Wil. From their childhood to just some time before, they were the closest anyone had known. But life is not ever as smooth as it seems on the surface, and the two grow apart after a disastrous mistake. When a sudden incident affects one, they bond over it and truly realize how far they've grown apart. With each secret threatening to bring them farther apart, hesitation and impulse play their roles in vital actions. Personally, I didn't like Bridge so much with her stubbornness and what she chose to do in multiple scenarios, but I suppose that can't be helped.
