*SPOILERS IN THE FOLLOWING*
Camden is introduced as a struggling teenager. He refuses help from adults in his life and even his friends. As we dive into the first couple of chapters, the reasoning behind Camden's odd behavior is perhaps explained. The plot arrives fairly quickly as well, but the book has a nice set up.
Nina is a lovely side character. From the moment you meet her you can tell her love for Cam, and as much as she doesn't want to, she's sort of let him go.
Camedon's overall change throughout the book is astounding. He makes mistakes, learns, realizes things but in a way that not a lot of other protagonists do. This was also a very good romantic YA book from a guy's point of view, which you don't see very often.
Viv on the other hand, (the alive one) is a very good lesson for Cam. He saw the way that his life could have gone if they (the other Viv) both would have made some different decisions. Although his memories of Viv were sort of tarnished, it was a lesson on his character judgment, and to not be so shrouded in love.
There are a couple of moments, the delicious kind, when you realize something right before Cam does. It's different than seeing through the plot, because you're almost in the same place as the protagonist. Those moment's in this book were lovely and thoughtful. This was a very lovely read!
