Publisher's Summary

A powerful story of loss, second chances, and first love, reminiscent of Sarah Dessen and John Green. When Oakley Nelson loses her older brother, Lucas, to cancer, she thinks she'll never recover. Between her parents' arguing and the battle she's fighting with depression, she feels nothing inside but a hollow emptiness. When Mom suggests they spend a few months in California with Aunt Jo, Oakley isn't sure a change of scenery will alter anything, but she's willing to give it a try. In California, Oakley discovers a sort of safety and freedom in Aunt Jo's beach house. Once they're settled, Mom hands her a notebook full of letters addressed to her - from Lucas. As Oakley reads one each day, she realizes how much he loved her, and each letter challenges her to be better and to continue to enjoy her life. He wants her to move on. If only it were that easy. But then a surfer named Carson comes into her life, and Oakley is blindsided. He makes her feel again. As she lets him in, she is surprised by how much she cares for him, and that's when things get complicated. How can she fall in love and be happy when Lucas never got the chance to do those very same things? With her brother's dying words as guidance, Oakley knows she must learn to listen and trust again. But will she have to leave the past behind to find happiness in the future?

It’s a good teen read.

It helped to read the reviews ahead to know this was a teen read but I enjoyed it anyway as I like to write in this genre as well. Good story. The narrator struggled with different voices but did well on the main character. I would recommend for teenager and moms / parents of teens because I think it does give some good insight.

The reason I gave this book a perfect rating was because there was always something going on and the way the author tells everything in detail helps you understand the emotions of the characters. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes romance and action all in one book!!! Positively one of my favorites!

DNF because of narrator

I think this story might actually be good but the narrator's voice had little variation between characters and I don't care for her seriously youthful voice. It just became so annoying that I stopped listening.

Sounds like it could be a cute story. Suggest to try reading it instead of listening. I am passing. Too many other stories that I'm interested listening and reading.
