Ever since last year’s homecoming dance, best friends-turned-best enemies Zorie and Lennon have made an art of avoiding each other. It doesn’t hurt that their families are the modern-day Californian version of the Montagues and Capulets.

But when a group camping trip goes south, Zorie and Lennon find themselves stranded in the wilderness. Alone. Together.

What could go wrong?

With no one but each other for company, Zorie and Lennon have no choice but to hash out their issues via witty jabs and insults as they try to make their way to safety. But fighting each other while also fighting off the forces of nature makes getting out of the woods in one piece less and less likely.

And as the two travel deeper into Northern California’s rugged backcountry, secrets and hidden feelings surface. But can Zorie and Lennon’s rekindled connection survive out in the real world? Or was it just a result of the fresh forest air and the magic of the twinkling stars?

I tried, I really did but I just didn’t like it. I thought I was ok with the writing but I just wasn’t. The MC wasn’t my favorite and her love interest was just a major ass. I thought the fight between the parents was weird and the MC hidding some serious info was just a huge no for me. I skimmed some of the book and never got to the teen cursing which I probably wouldn’t have been much of a fan of either. This book just didn’t work for me and after 50 pages and 3 days of trying I just bailed out. I have had problems with contemporary YA before and I keep trying because I know it is something I will enjoy it just needs to be the perfect situations. The rating for this book is pretty good but just not for me. It’s ok, I am glad I got the chance to try it out and bummed I didn’t like it but with so many books, I am on to the next. 🙂

  1. I wish you’d enjoy it better. I enjoy contemporaries, but I get really picky with mermaid books. I think I can relate about the perfect situations with them. I’ll always love mermaid books, but if it veers to weird or off in plot, I usually don’t enjoy it. I started Of Poseidon trilogy by Anna Banks but quit the second book because I hated where the plot went.
