Callie is trying to survive high school and get out of her small Florida town. When her best friend moves away to college, Callie believes she is stuck alone.

I really love me some books set in Florida. Especially when it gives a glimpse into small-town Florida.

I really liked Callie and her relationship with her twin brother. Being a mom to boy/girl twins myself, I love seeing older twins that have a close relationship.

Callie’s spunky and fun personality is relatable and her hate to love relationship with Jaime was definitely swoon-worthy. I also loved that their family ran a diner.

I kind of figured out the twist that was coming but it was still shocking. It really brought out the realities of modern-day high-school.

I thought that the Hurricane threat was an interesting part of the story and is dead on what it’s like living in Florida during hurricane season.

I thought Callie’s aunt’s relationship in the story was super sweet.

The story ended on a cliff-hanger with a glimpse into the next story, ‘We Thought We Were Invincible’, which I can’t wait to read and find out what the future holds next for Callie and Jaime.
