My Review: I really, really enjoyed this book. I'm always skeptical about free downloads, but lately I've had great luck with this. This was what really good. Paige gets in trouble at school and is required to do community service. She has to spend her afternoons reading to Zach, who is in a coma. After finishing one book, she reaches for another and finds his journal hidden beneath the cover of Frankenstein. Paige decides to read the journal to him hoping that it will help him wake up. As she reads, she learns more and more about the boy in the coma and she begins to form sort-of a relationship with him. It is really interesting to hear his story through his journal entries and to hear her reaction to those entries. I enjoyed watching their unconventional relationship blossom. And the ending of the book was fantastic. It was a quick, fun read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I'll have to check out the sequel soon.
My Rating: I really liked it
