Book summary:

‘If she’d waited less than two weeks, she’d be June who died in June. But I guess my sister didn’t consider that.’

Harper Scott’s older sister has always been the perfect one so when June takes her own life a week before her high school graduation, sixteen-year-old Harper is devastated. Everyone’s sorry, but no one can explain why.

When her divorcing parents decide to split her sister’s ashes into his-and-her urns, Harper takes matters into her own hands. She’ll steal the ashes and drive cross-country with her best friend, Laney, to the one place June always dreamed of going, California.

Enter Jake Tolan. He’s a boy with a bad attitude, a classic-rock obsession and nothing in common with Harper’s sister. But Jake had a connection with June, and when he insists on joining them, Harper’s just desperate enough to let him. With his alternately charming and infuriating demeanour and his belief that music can see you through anything, he might be exactly what she needs.

Except June wasn’t the only one hiding something. Jake’s keeping a secret that has the power to turn Harper’s life upside down again.

     You may already know that I'm huge book lover, but you also may or may not know that I'm rock music lover so when you put those things together in a book there is no friggin way for me not to adore it. So you already know I adore this book. 
     After her sister died Harper is struggling. She has no idea why her sister did that to herself. Not only her sister is gone but her family as well. Trying to struggle with growing up and discovering the truth, she is also determinate to do one last thing for her sister. Even after Jake is joining her and Laney to something that turned out to be road trip she still needs to find herself. Traveling cross country she discovers herself and the world around her. This book is not only the book about Harper finding the truth. This is book about growing up and also this book is full of honesty. Characters are strong and alive so you can easily join them. Not to mention that Jake has awesome taste in music which automatically puts him high on my fictional boys crush list. Or to use Glass' words into my harem. 
     I always complain how I couldn't "feel" some books but there are also some that you not only feel you live through them. This is one of those. So as you can already guess huge 5 starts for this book. 

    One last thing. Jake said that once he'd play this song but he didn't. This might not be my promise to keep, but somehow I feel like I should. Without further ado enjoy

Until the next time,
