Wow, this book was amazing. When I first read the description I wasn’t sure how I would feel about this May-December romance, as TJ is 16 when the novel begins. However this was handled very well and the romance developed over time. It felt very realistic and natural. The first half of the book they are stranded on the island and have to learn how to survive. I made the mistake of starting this book right before bed and I couldn’t put this down.
This was a beautiful love story. They both had this bond from being thrown together in this situation and having each other to rely on to survive. TJ was more mature for someone of his age from dealing with cancer and then surviving the island. I also enjoyed the first person narrative of both Anna and TJ.
Four 1/2 stars
