The blurb from the back of the book:

To the outside world, Cara’s life seems perfect. The only one who knows the dark secrets inside her home is her best friend and next-door neighbor, Adam. Cara’s only escape is by writing and sharing her stories with him through their facing bedroom windows late at night.

Just when everything seems to get better, Cara’s world shatters, causing her to spiral into a deep depression and writer’s block. Even though Adam promises her “everything will be okay,” she knows things will never be the same. 

As she clutches to the fractured wounds of the past, how will Cara ever be able to love or write again?


What a fantastic book! I was so engrossed in the story that I couldn’t stop reading! I actually cried at one point.

I loved the poetry throughout the book and it really added to the story in such a beautiful way.

I felt for Cara and all she has had to go through. Adam was her constant through the good times and the bad. The boy next door.

I loved their connection. They had such a special bond and despite ups and downs that life throws at you, they make it through together.

When tragedy strikes, Cara is lost and everything she ever dreamed of is suddenly taken away.

Her journey continues as she grows older and things happen that are unexpected.

I didn’t find out until the end of the book that it was based on a true story. Wow. This is a beautiful and tragic coming of age story.

I gave it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
