Abby accepted that she can’t measure up to her beautiful, magnetic sister Tess a long time ago, and knows exactly what she is: Second best. Invisible.  Until the accident.  Now Tess is in a coma, and Abby’s life is on hold. It may have been hard living with Tess, but it's nothing compared to living without her. She's got a plan to bring Tess back though, involving the gorgeous and mysterious Eli, but then Abby learns something about Tess, something that was always there, but that she’d never seen. Abby is about to find out that truth isn't always what you think it is, and that life holds more than she ever thought it could... - Goodreads.com.

I'm in love.  This book was fantastic.  I have always been a fan of this author, and I have never read a book of hers that I did not absolutely love.  But this book is special. 

Aside from the awesome characterization that made the Abby, Claire and Eli so real, their struggles and inner thoughts so vivid, this book was just beautifully written.  The words were poetry and everything fit together so well that it felt like no time at all before I was finishing the book and wishing there was more.

Abby's issues very well could have caused her to come across as whiny and self-pitying, but the way Elizabeth Scott handled this character kept her from becoming that.  She had an inner strength despite her insecurities.  Eli was a beautiful character, both inside and out.  He was described as being a beautiful, gorgeous boy in the book, but as you got to know him, you realized that the surface was nothing compared to the inside.  The way these two interacted was so touching.

I can't wait for this book to come out so that I can buy it and add it to my collection.  This is one I have to own for myself and reread again and again.  Five stars isn't enough.  This book is beautiful.

If you liked this book, you'll need to buy it.  I'm not going to draw any comparisons to other books on this one.  :-)
