They exist in two different centuries, but their love defies time
Cassandra craves drama and adventure, so the last thing she wants is to spend her summer marooned with her mother and stepfather in a snooty Massachusetts shore town. But when a dreamy stranger shows up on their private beach claiming it's his own—and that the year is 1925—she is swept into a mystery a hundred years in the making.
As she searches for answers in the present, Cassandra discovers a truth that puts their growing love—and Lawrence's life—into jeopardy. Desperate to save him, Cassandra must find a way to change history…or risk losing Lawrence forever.
On vacation with her family, Cassandra is bored out of her mind until she meets a boy on the beach named Lawrence. But there's something strange about Lawrence; the way he talks, the way he dresses. Lawrence in the meantime also thinks there's something about Cassandra. Eventually they find out they're from two different times. She lives in 2015 and he in 1925, and they're only able to meet on the beach. Nevertheless they fall in love...
I loved this book because it was partly set in 2015 and 1925. I absolutely love reading about the roaring twenties so this was awesome for me. I also loved Cassandra and Lawrence's relationship. I liked how they came together on the beach and connected even though almost a century seperated them.
The story was a bit of a race, because Cassandra wanted to try and save Lawrence and find a way to really be together.
I'm not sure how I feel about the ending. It was really bittersweet but on the other hand I loved it. It was also very beautiful. One hint: have tissues at hand. You'll need them, trust me.
