My name is Calla Price. I’m eighteen years old, and I’m one half of a whole. My other half—my twin brother, my Finn—is crazy. I love him. More than life, more than anything. And even though I’m terrified he’ll suck me down with him, no one can save him but me. I’m doing all I can to stay afloat in a sea of insanity, but I’m drowning more and more each day. So I reach out for a lifeline. Dare DuBray. He’s my savior and my anti-Christ. His arms are where I feel safe, where I’m afraid, where I belong, where I’m lost. He will heal me, break me, love me and hate me. He has the power to destroy me. Maybe that’s ok. Because I can’t seem to save Finn and love Dare without everyone getting hurt. Why? Because of a secret. A secret I’m so busy trying to figure out, that I never see it coming. You won’t either

My Thoughts:

OMG! There are no words to express the total mind blow effect of this book. I’m in awe; what an amazingly, heart wrenching, mind bending story that will take you for a spin you’ll never see coming. I can’t say much about this book, it would be a shame to reveal even the slightest amount of information, all I can really say is that it is a brilliant story that demands to be read.


“I wrote this story the way it needed to be written.  I couldn’t sugarcoat it.  I couldn’t water it down.  It is this way because the story demands it.    I’m not sorry.”

I’ve had this book sitting on my Kindle for a while and decided to finally read it, for some reason the cover made me think it was paranormal or something but it’s not really. Mainly it’s a love story, albeit a rather unconventional love story. Okay, so I’m usually very good at figuring things out since I’ve read so many books and seen so many movies and i did have my theories but the twist in this book had my jaw hitting my lap. It’s really hard to completely figure it out until BANG! it hits you and all you can do is gape like a fish out of water.

Do me a favor and just give it a chance, be open minded and i promise you wont regret it, it might seem weird at first, like something is off but you can’t quite put your finger on it, but all will make sense in the end.

“I would plunge to the bottom of the ocean for you.  I’d comb it for shells and make you a necklace and then hang myself with it.  Because if you aren’t here, I don’t want to be either.”

Calla-our heroine-is overwhelmed with the grief of losing her mother to a car accident and the stress of having to play keeper of her mentally ill twin brother-whom she desperately needs to keep from doing anything to himself. Then a mysterious boy named Dare comes suddenly into her life. She tethers herself to him; he becomes her anchor, the comfort and companion she so desperately needs in this hard time. But there are secrets everywhere, you have to pay attention and be open minded because I promise that even though somethings will seem odd or weirdly out of place, there is a reason for everything.

You’ve been warned though,  the story does deal with strong issues and emotional moments that will tug at your heart but it’s still an unbelievable story that deserves to be read.

“because sometimes that’s how life is.  A puzzle made up of a million pieces, and when one piece doesn’t exactly fit, it throws the rest of them off.”
