Two boys. One love. Ten summers.
Are you okay?
The first words Zed says to Caspian, and the first time someone has cared about the answer. On a hot summer’s day, the lives of two boys are changed forever. A rebel and a risk taker, Caspian doesn’t give a damn for the consequences. Studious and obedient, Zed is the good boy who is never good enough.
The two couldn’t be more different, but there’s one thing they share, a need to belong to someone who understands them, someone who cares. Their friendship goes deeper than either can possibly imagine. They’re young, in love, and planning their future when an act of betrayal tears them apart.
Fate deals its hand. Seasons pass. Zed’s words follow Caspian through pain, fear and into the darkest of places. Friendships can last a lifetime, even when the world conspires to crush them. But this is more than friendship. This is love and they’re not going to let it slip through their fingers.

WOW just WOW,I just have no words how this story made me feel,what a beautiful heartfelt journey for Zeb and Caspian, these two met as young boys fourteen and fifteen and there journey that spans over the next ten years was an emotional ride.
The details that this author must have had to find out to get into this book is awesome,you automatically fall in love with these two characters Zeb and Caspian that they will have you routing for them at every turn.The emotional ride and heart felt life they lead had me absorbed where i couldn’t put this book down for a minuet.
They came from different backgrounds but they was both Abused,Zeb physically and Caspain mentally where all they lived for was the summers they spent together in the tree house while they was young,and the hot summer they met there lives was changed forever.
There are books that you love and can’t wait to devour the story, and they are books that you just can’t put down,this was both of these and it is a story that is going to stay with me for along time to come.I love Barbara’s book’s but this just surpassed any i have read before,her writing is amazing with her world building and all the feels you get with this book is phenomenal.
This book was worth far more than five stars,this was a gripping story from beginning to end.
