Zo or Zoie the Hoie as I like to refer to her and of course, I hated her.But it wasn t just your regular hate This was deep, burning hate that even the fiery pits of hell couldn t compete with And then there was the scene with Walker Cough Douche bag Cough and Zo at the back of the school, practically dry humping each other Lafayette, speak for me Once we got past that, Auden s heart felt love confession, another bitch out from Zo and finally reached the part with her dad.Oh myYes, I cried And though I ll claim I hate it, I kind of like it when authors make me cry It proves to me that their actually pretty good at what they do.Then of course there was the part with Auden right after the waterfall incident My word Such profanity I know I shouldn tI ll try not toI ll try to resistbut

whining about her circumstance I can see where the story is going I portend much disappoint from the Zoie and Walker front and frankly all I can think is meh Lia shouldn t have been in the car in the first place By doing a favor for her sister, she has changed her life forever A one in a million chance The navigation system in her car malfunctioned and she crashed head on with another car Her body broken her skin burning, Lia waited for help Unfortunately, her body didn t survive the trauma of the accident However, her brain remained in tact Lia wakes up several weeks later to find that she is
