“My father said that love at first sight should send you running, if you know what’s good for you. It’s your dark pieces having instant recognition with their dark pieces, he says. You’re an idiot if you think it means you’ve met your soul mate. So I was an idiot.”

Wow, is all that I can say about this book!
The book starts off with Clara and her father driving to their summer-house. They have decided to leave town for the summer due to an awful circumstance surrounding Clara and her ex boyfriend, Christian.
Clara had thought that she found her soul mate in Christian. He was everything that she had ever wanted. They spent all their time together until Clara started noticing certain changes in Christian. Clara blames herself for the way Christian acts, she believes that she made him need her and want her. It will take the whole summer for Clara to realize the truth.
This book is set up in a way that the main character is telling a story. I LOVE the little footnotes at the bottom of the pages to elaborate on some ideas. The only part that I found funny was how quickly Clara was to jump at another relationship. I thought it odd that a girl who was so messed up from a previous relationship would want to jump right into another?
This is a great summer read. I suggest all teenage girls should read a book like this to show that relationships are not always hugs and kisses! Beware though, there was an awful lot of fowl language.
