This book is about a teen boy and girl, Jace and Peyton, who meet at a party in Florida. A connection was made and Peyton headed back home to Florida along with her mom. Being in in different states didn’t Jace and Peyton from having contact with each other. They did what mostly every teenager does, call and text each other nonstop. Out of the nowhere, all this stopped. Peyton went to Florida once again for her uncle’s wedding where she and Jace met up once again making it very awkward. This wasn’t as awkward as Jace driving Peyton back home to Connecticut. This long road trip gave the couple a chance to talk to each other and figure things out between them as to why their relationship ended.

I really loved this book. I am a big fan of romance. This book was perfect because it wasn’t just romance but it had a little humor as well. What made this book very engaging was the structure or style that it was written in. The author used dialogue and we were allowed to see how the character was by the language they used. Another style that the author used was past and present tense and the different point of view from Jace and Peyton.  I can relate to Peyton in a way because when first talking to a guy or meeting them, i'm shy. I don’t like telling them everything about me especially after meeting them and i think that is what throws them off. They assume that i'm not interested because i don’t want to talk about myself much. This happened to Peyton, Jace assumed that Peyton didn’t like him because she didn’t talk about herself to him.
