Date Published: 2011
When Katherine Johns starts dreaming about a boy she doesn't know, her college roommate Taylor is determined to find him. Convinced he must exist, Taylor is relentless... until she finds out exactly WHO the mysterious stranger really is.
The realization rocks the girls to their core and sends them down a path of unimaginable heartbreak as they learn to navigate their new reality.
Follow Katherine & Taylor's journey through love, friendship and tragedy in the first book of this emotionally captivating series.
First of all, how incredibly tragic is this story? To be completely in love with a mystery boy who appears in your dreams only to find out he is actually the ghost of your college roommates brother has got to be so devastating.
I think that the supporting cast in this book really adds a whole other level to the story. You get to see the emotions of so many different people who have dealt with the loss of the same person. From the high school girlfriend, to the sister, to the girl who is destined for him.
Cooper is a whole other story for me. I mean as much as you want to love Taylor and really believe they belong together, Cooper just comes out of left field and has you falling for him. There were times when I wanted to smack Kate. Poor Cooper not only doesn't do anything wrong, but can get no explanation of why she ignores him. He is so understanding about everything, well actually both guys are.
The ending of this book is crazy! I don't know what the heck is going to happen now, but I will definitely be reading to find out.
