Type: Drama and romance Tori Mangino: I would rate the book on a scale of one to five a four. I absolutely loved the way it is written when it flashed back and forth between young and old but always keeps the plot easy to follow for the reader. It also addressed very real topics that are issues even still in today's world. Ashley DuBois: I thought that this book was written very well and that it was overall a good book. I liked that even though the main story took place in the past it showed how Jacob was in the future. Even though the ending of the main storyline was cliche, I'd give the book a four out of five stars. Jacobs Flashbacks:
