Loudon has never had to feel pain nor the ignorance of his peers. Can opposites really bring these two together or will they be pulled even further apart?Only one thing is for sure, it is impossible to fight the connection of pierced love when one is willing to change for happiness.
I loved this book! I am not a big YA reader anymore, although I can still be talked to them if they have a really great story- which this one did. Loudon is definitely a book boyfriend to love and Zar is a typical emotional teenager, only her teenage years have not been so typical since the death of her grandmother and her first experience being called "the freak".
This book explores Zar's inner struggles to return to who she used to be and deal with the good in her life to enjoy who she is now. Loudon becomes more than she ever thought possible, as she is so accustomed to no one saying anything nice to her and no guys paying her anything but negative attention- when they are bullying her. I highly recommend this book to everyone, not just teens- I found it to be a very enjoyable read, sex or not....in this case not. ;) Kellie
