The much anticipated new novel from international best-selling author Jennifer Niven, author of All the Bright Places.
You were my first. Not just sex, although that was part of it, but the first to look past everything else into me. Some of the names and places have been changed, but the story is true. It's all here because one day this will be the past and I don't want to forget what I went through, what I thought, what I felt, who I was. I don't want to forget you. But most of all, I don't want to forget me.
For her last summer before college, Claudine Henry and her mother head to a remote island off the Georgia coast. There, amidst the wild beauty of the place, she meets the free-spirited Jeremiah Crew. Their chemistry is immediate and irresistible, and even though they both know that whatever they have can only last the summer, maybe one summer is enough....

the book is very relatable...you get lost in it and is one to keep with you all your life
I was disappointed by this story.
Jennifer Niven can write! Her writing is amazing and beautiful and you do get swept away in her descriptions. But, this fell short of 'Holding up the Universe" and "All the Bright Places". The story didn't really go anywhere. It was essentially a snap shot of a holiday romance, not much else. So whilst the writing was brilliant-the depictions of the intensity and angst of first love-the overall book was not as good as I hoped it would be. And for me, that boils down to a lack of actual story.
