"Savannah would be happy to spend the summer in her coastal Carolina town working at the library and lying in a hammock reading her beloved romance novels. But then she meets Jackson. Once they lock eyes, she’s convinced he’s the one—her true love, her soul mate, a boy different from all the rest. And at first it looks like Savannah is right. Jackson abides by her mama’s strict rules, and stays by her side during a hospitalization for severe asthma, which Savannah becomes convinced is only improving because Jackson is there. But when he’s called away to help his family—and seems uncertain about returning—Savannah has to learn to breathe on her own, both literally and figuratively."
Savannah, I loved her! She had a lot to learn but I was glad that she had a good mama, and great boyfriend, Jack to teach her to breath. Savannah would freak out over every little thing. And if I remember correctly, I was the same way. Something went wrong and Bam, I am was in a fit! I loved that while Savannah would go into a fit someone was there to hold her, to help her breath again. But more so, I am glad that Savannah was beginning to learn to breath on her own.
The plot of this book is nothing dramatic, but just wonderfully simple. It didn’t need much drama or problems cause the characters were enough for the reader. The characters were a whole another story themselves. If you want a down right, good ol’ southern book, read this. I can assure you, it will not only make you feel southern in your mind but in your heart!
I give it 5 BITES!
