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...

My Thoughts:

What a sad story. My heart ached for this family. I can't imagine being in a situation like this and the stress and sadness it brings.

Abby's is so down on herself. Her self esteem is so wrapped up in her perfect sister, she can't imagine she's worthy of anything or anyone. It just breaks my heart.

This book is as much about Tess is it about Abby growing up and learning to let herself feel what she feels. As Abby learns more about Tess's life and how it truly was and not what she thought, she starts to bloom in her own life.

You'll want a box of tissues for this one folks.
