Author Bio:
Chelsea lives in Phoenix, AZ where she spends most of her time writing young adult fiction, painting murals, and avoiding housework at all costs. Her obsessions include: superheroes, coffee, sleeping-in, and crazy socks.

Review:
Short, but so very sweet.
Neighbors brought together by circumstance. That's what this story is. A telling of kindred spirits. Both living emotionally and physically hard lives, and yet, they still get a happy ending. What could be better than that?!
I could read about Carter & Sophie all day. In fact, I'm wanting to know what happened after. Really, I want to know.


4/5
