Publisher's Summary

A heartbreaking tale of love, loss, and one nearly perfect summer - perfect for fans of The Fault in Our Stars and Everything, Everything.

Seventeen-year-old Katie Price has a rare disease that makes exposure to even the smallest amount of sunlight deadly. Confined to her house during the day, her company is limited to her widowed father and her best (okay, only) friend. It isn't until after nightfall that Katie's world opens up, when she takes her guitar to the local train station and plays for the people coming and going.

Charlie Reed is a former all-star athlete at a crossroads in his life - and the boy Katie has secretly admired from afar for years. When he happens upon her playing guitar one night, fate intervenes and the two embark on a star-crossed romance.

As they challenge each other to chase their dreams and fall for each other under the summer night sky, Katie and Charlie form a bond strong enough to change them - and everyone around them - forever.

i had high hopes but it didnt let me down

the narrator was really nice, her voice really reminded me of bella thorne so it was reasy for me to follow along with no such a big change between the movie and the book. i loved the movie so i knew the book wouldnt let me down, it is really cheesy and dreamy, but as a 16 year old who loves cheesy love stories i enjoyed it a lot.

An incredibly beautiful story

It was a beautiful story and a lot of fun to listen to, but ended quite predictably.

Don’t get fooled

Just because this book became a movie doesn’t mean it is a good story or well written.

Doesn't get good until the end

I almost returned this book until I saw the reviews. The beginning is completely unrealistic and everything fell too perfectly into place. It wasn't until the last third of the book that things started to get interested. The plot twist had me absolutely shook based on how the book started off. Recommend if you're in for a good ride and are willing to get past the cringy beginning.

Lacking Depth

I've listened to quite a few books about dying teen love stories, and this one was pretty mediocre. The characters are one-dimentional and are basically the same people at the end of the story as they were at the beginning. I wasn't moved at all by the love story which was greatly lacking in build-up. She's been in love with the boy for her whole life then suddenly there he is and immediately there's a connection and then two days later they're a "thing" and....that's basically it. She can't go out in the sun...so what? They just hang out all night. There's a girl who doesn't like her...doesnt matter cause they never see her again He finds out about her disease...so what? He's perfect so he doesn't care and loves her anyway. She stays out too late...well now she's going to die. The end.

Not the most thought-provoking story.

Narration was good. Every female sounds the same. Every male sounds the same. But her narration was easy to listen to.

Ok

This is not the best book I’ve read or the worst. The story is very predictable and the side characters aren’t very developed. All in all if your look for an easy read it’s a good choice
