Moral of the story is just because something bad happens or you lose someone you really care about, you should understand that the most important thing is happiness. Your loved one will always no matter what, want you to be happy, so you should always allow yourself to be happy even if you have to work at it, and it might not be easy but in the end its what's right and we all know that deep down.

This is the moment when Brooklyn decided she will give her and Nicco a try, because she knows in her heart that Lucca would want her to be happy in the end.
When Brooklyn and Nicco allow themselves to be together and enter the triathaolon together.Gabe and Lucca finally comunicate to Brooklyn and Nicco that they want them to be together, and to show them to stop worrying about them and to live their life's together.
I would give the Gateway book "Chasing Brooklyn" a thumbs up. This book is very simple to read and I love the format of how it is written,to look like a letter or diary entree. I feel that Brooklyn's character is very easy to relate to and not because of her losing a loved one but the way she analyzes situations and her reactions to certain scenarios. The writing is very descriptive. And I particularly enjoy when she is writing in her journal about when she was swimming and she wrote the lines to resemble she swimming laps.
