Everyone's sorry. But no one can explain why.

Harper Scott's older sister, June, took her own life a week before high school graduation, leaving Harper devastated. So when her divorcing parents decide to split up June's ashes, Harper steals the urn and takes off cross-country with her best friend, Laney, to the one place June always dreamed of going--California.

Enter Jake Tolan, a boy with a bad attitude, a classic-rock obsession...and an unknown connection to June. When he insists on joining them, Harper's just desperate enough to let him. With his alternately charming and infuriating demeanor and his belief that music can see you through anything, he might be exactly what Harper needs. Except...Jake's keeping a secret that has the power to turn her life upside down--again.

Pleasantly surprised!! This was by far one of the best teen fiction books I've read. A believable and unconventional romance, a road trip, lots of music, and crazy adventures makes for a great read. The playlists at the end are amazing :)

Meh. This book was pretty slow moving and dull, and I didn't really like any of the characters. So, for me, I didn't like it at all...but I can see that if you're into books that have music playlists and that sort of hipster/record store/mix-tape loving teen scene then maybe this is for you. (Ok, maybe that's harsh...but that's what this book felt like to me).

This is one of the books in the world that gives you a different understanding each time you read it. The more times you read this book, the more meanings you will get. Lots of changing and maturity was shown in the book; not to mention the romance of course. Good books always have new relationships formed :) I love this book and have read it more than four times in the past few weeks.

"Can I help you with something?" I say shortly. After a day of constant platitudes, a steady stream of thank-you-for-your-concern and we're-doing-our-best and it-was-a-shock-to-us-too, my patience is shot. It definitely isn't going to be extended to the guy who broke my sister's heart a few months ago

Of course she is," Laney says glibly, drawing him toward the doorway to the dining room. She's definitely lying; I can tell by the mannered, lofty tilt in her speech. That's the voice she uses with her father?one that takes extra care to be as articulate and practiced as possible. It's completely different from her normal tone
