I received this book free from the publisher; opinions shared are mine.

I started this book 3 times and never made it past the first five pages. Finally, on the fourth attempt, I forced myself to keep going. So glad I did! Ultimately, it was a wonderful story that touched my heart. I wasn't really interested in Freya's situation until it affected Harun and Nathaniel. The overall theme of human connectedness was so emotionally charged. It made me look at strangers in a whole new light.

There are several mentions of teens drinking alcohol, sex, and mental illness. Gayle Forman did not shy away from uncomfortable topics, that’s for sure! I normally don't enjoy these one-day-long stories, but this one was pretty good.
