Everyone has one.

Some are bigger than others.

And when secrets are revealed,

Some will heal you …

And some will end you.

Kate Sedgwick’s life has been anything but typical. She’s endured hardship and tragedy, but throughout it all she remains happy and optimistic (there’s a reason her best friend Gus calls her Bright Side). Kate is strong-willed, funny, smart, and musically gifted. She’s also never believed in love. So when Kate leaves San Diego to attend college in the small town of Grant, Minnesota, the last thing she expects is to fall in love with Keller Banks.

They both feel it.
But they each have a reason to fight it.
They each have a secret.

And when secrets are revealed,
Some will heal you …
And some will end you.

Perfect for the Sentimental

I really would have given this book a pass if I had known what the secret was. So I think this had one of the best strategically written blurb ever. And I hope NO ONE would spoil it.

The best part of the story was the ending. It’s very touching, very emotional. You could say it took my breath away. Usually when the story got to that point, there wasn’t much to write about. But somehow, the author found it in her to push the story to another emotional level. It was very unexpected.

You just had to get pass the ever slow moving and the rather not-so-special romance, 65% of it. Then, bam, when the secret was out, you could really see how fitting the nickname was to the heroine. She kickass, and she had the best soul. She did not let circumstances cripple her, nor did she use it for an excuse. She also did not carry grudges. No, she was not a super human being. She did break down here and there, but in the end she did not let it get the best of her. I’d vote her for the best heroine of the year.

You had to be deep to really enjoy this book. If you were into cheap entertainment and instant gratification, you won’t get this from here. This book was about life, about how sucky it could be, and about how you could appreciate it no matter what.
