From Amazon.com: One kiss lasts a moment. But a thousand kisses can last a lifetime. One boy. One girl. A bond that is forged in an instant and cherished for a decade. A bond that neither time nor distance can break. A bond that will last forever. Or so they believe. When seventeen-year-old Rune Kristiansen returns from his native Norway to the sleepy town of Blossom Grove, Georgia, where he befriended Poppy Litchfield as a child, he has just one thing on his mind. Why did the girl who was one half of his soul, who promised to wait faithfully for his return, cut him off without a word of explanation? Rune’s heart was broken two years ago when Poppy fell silent. When he discovers the truth, he finds that the greatest heartache is yet to come. Standalone Young Adult Tearjerker Romance. For ages 14 and up
This is such an epic love story! So sweet, so touching... just tragically beautiful. All. The. Feels.
I purchased this and read it on my Kindle app in one day. Actually, I woke up in the middle of the night and finished it after reading most of it that same day.
It's definitely a 5-Star read for me, and 91% of the 494 reviews on Amazon are also 5-Star, so I'm definitely not alone!
