This was a book about loss, about almost giving up, about realizing that life is worth living, and about finding like be again.

Denver has suffered so much since his twin brother Deiken took his own life. He fells that he has lost his othe half, his best friend. He has considered many of times joining him but has yet to do it.

Jett also lost Deiken and also thought about giving in and given by up but didn’t. Jett and Denver come together in their shared grief, anger, and loneliness and start to move forward together.

They both feel guilt over finding happiness together but in the end they both decide to live and love each other and not give in.

This book is about learning to live again and realizing that love is nothing to feel guilty over.

It is a short story but it has a lot of impact to it. It was a very good read and I think that others will enjoy it also.
