About the Book
Here are three things to know about Maia:
  1. Ever since her mother left, Maia's struggled with depression -- which once got so bad, she had to go to an institution for a while. She doesn't want to go back.
  2. Maia's sure that if she finds her mother, if the two of them can talk about whale songs and constellations, then everything will be okay again.
  3. She's in love with Billy, the handsome, brooding boy who lives in the group home in town. He doesn't seem to know that Maia exists... until now.
When Maia sets off on a road trip in search of her mom, Billy unexpectedly comes along. They drive up the East Coast, stopping along the way for lobster rolls and lighthouses. Maia learns that Billy has dark secrets of his own -- and wants to outrun his past, too. But what will the future hold if they reach their destination?

From internationally bestselling author Luanne Rice, this is a sweeping, stunning story about the surprising directions our hearts can take.

My Take on the Book
I had not read any of this authors' books in the past but after reading this I can see why people like Luanne Rice. This was a powerful book that brings out great characters and a wonderful story too. In the book readers will connect to the plight of the main character. They may even see something of themselves in her struggles. You will feel the love that she has for Billy as well as better understand the real struggles that she has with depression. The story is real and you come to really care about the characters and what happens to them, This is a powerful book and has some more touchy topics that are dealt with, but in the end it is an amazing book that you will love to read!
