Former piano prodigy Nastya Kashnikov wants two things: to get through high school without anyone learning about her past and to make the boy who took everything from her - her identity, her spirit, her will to live - pay. Josh Bennett’s story is no secret: Every person he loves has been taken from his life until, at 17 years old, there is no one left. Now all he wants is be left alone and people allow it because when your name is synonymous with death, everyone tends to give you your space.

Everyone except Nastya, the mysterious new girl at school who starts showing up and won’t go away until she’s insinuated herself into every aspect of his life.

i highly recommended that you turn the speed down to 95 while listening to this book. the narrator does a good job but she was narrating to fast at the beginning. Once i turned the speed down the book was very enjoyable. it wasnt my favorite Coleen Hoover book but it was still excellent.

I enjoyed the story. it's fun and exciting but the narrator made it really hard to finish. she sounds as though she has the worst stuffy nose ever or she is pinching her nose while narrating. I wish these books would be re-recorded with a different narrator.
