I thought the trailer was very moving, because i felt like I could relate to it and the music wasn't loud but soft and peaceful which gave me a bittersweet vibe. Overall the trailer was EPIC!!!
This trailer was extremely well thought out and truly expressed what this story has in a simplistic yet symbolic one minute video. After listening to the first chapter audio and taking a look at the trailer, I saw the strong symbolic correlations right away. The definition of the heart was a perfect way of starting off the trailer since Quinn works hard to try to discover the person with Trent's heart. A couple running down right through the sunset just how Quinn wishes she can do this one more time with Trent. The glass representing the heartache that Quinn experiences and accident that Trent went through his junior year. The beating of the heart and the heart itself represents something that no one else can replicate. Quinn wrote letters to those who received transplants since Trent was a organ doner and she hoped that they would respond and notice her just like how Trent did. Within the end of the audio of the first chapter, Trent was holding a sunflower taller than Quinn and the trailer ended with a couple sharing a kiss under the sun. Quinn longed for that last kiss that could never happen again. Overall, this trailer was a great portrayal of this story in a quick trailer. Jessi Kirby really captured me since all these events are part of a teen's life whether it'd be falling in love or sometimes having to experience heartbreak in the hardest ways. Awesome music to go along with it as well!
I thought the book sounded great but glad to watch the trailer it made it even better sounding. I like the whole trailer.
