I fell in love with both these characters and found myself emotionally connected to their story from the start. I love that it's written from an alternating POV- letting us into what both characters are feeling. Georgia has become one of my favorite MCs- I felt her anguish, her fear, and her hope. I can't wait to continue their journey.
