You will feel really bad about him. My heart was breaking every time he was talking about his past or when he was living one of those horrible moments. Callie is there to help him bust she can’t protect him from everything.
This is one of the best books I've ever read .Their story is so beautiful. It's not unrealistic or too dramatic. Personally I didnt get the feeling that too many calamities were happening so as to annoy me.

It's not easy to open up but they do their best. Yet some secrets are better to stay hidden , at least for the moment.
CAUTION: MAJOR CLIFFHANGER ALERT!
One of the most evil cliffhangers ever .I didn’t see that coming and it had an awful effect on my feelings.
Why end a book in such a brutal way? Does any of the authors care for the readers’ feelings? Obviously not. I was so devastated after I finished this book and I'm anxiously waiting for the next one.
“That’s you. Callie, you’re the only person that’s ever made me feel happy about anything. That night you saved me, you changed something in me—you made me want to live.”
