This is by far my all time favorite book. It's so descriptive and it just pulls you right in. I actually started crying when I finished it. So go read it!

Kevin Brooks did an excellent job. Some of his discriptions are so poetic. I thought the story line was a bit unusual, though it did flow well. I found myself captivated at how mature Caitlin was for her age. I was baffled at the way that the town reacted to Lucas after the festival.The only problem with this book, is that it's hard to believe. I find it impossible to believe that one town could be so unbelievably gullible and impulsive.This truely is a remarkable tale of love and hate.

    I've read better

    I thought this book was good. I found myself feeling the emotions of the main character. I plan on returning this book because I won't be re reading it over 20 times, like I have with another book(s). Maybe I didn't enjoy this book as much as I could have because I had just finished my favorite books ever. [And the best in my opinion] Either way good but not too too good. I dont particularly reccomend it.

    I didn't like it.

    It was okay and all, but it was too descriptive of some of the dumbest things. I mean, who wants to see a page and a half describing Caitlin crouching down and peeing in the bushes??? And the writer doesn't let us use our own imagination because he's trying too hard to make us see HIS vision instead of letting us create our own. Caitlin was also being a spoiled brat throughout the whole story. The only one she ever cares about in that story is herself. I was waiting for someone to knock some sense into her, like her brother, or Lucas, or even that friend of hers who likes to party a lot. She was actually about to, but it didn't go far enough. Caitlin thinks too much also. She tries to give everything around her some deep meaning. Lucas was smoking weed for the same reason everyone else on the island was, because he was hooked on it. Not because he liked to do it every now and again because it was just someting he did. You see the guy popping one mearly every time she meets up with him. I think the writer could've given Lucas a lot more emotion too. The reader can hardly relate to him. He never cried or got mad or burst out laughing or anything like that. And that makes him seem just... like a robot without an real feelings about anything. He should have at least gotten mad at what's-his-name for nearly raping Caitlin. *sigh* He wasn't however. He should've just cut his thing off anyway. At the end, when Caitlin is consumed with her depression for nearly a year, I found that a little odd. She barely knew that guy. She was only in love with the IDEA of him that she had created in her mind. A depression like that was rather unessesary. It would've made Caitlin seem a lot stronger if the writer had Caitlin move on from her sadness. That many months was just pathetic. Then her dad encourages her to STAY depressed and never move on. This coming from a drunkard who never got over the death of his wife and was consumed in writing teen books that nobody ever reads. But the one thing that got to me was that Lucas never kissed Caitlin. Isn't that what these teen romance books are all about? After all they had been through together he couldn't giver one good one on the lips??? Geez... oh well, it was entertaining to say the least, I read it in two days that should say something. I just don't think i'll ever read it again, ever. But if you all like it, well go on ahead.
