“The heart has its reasons, of which reasons knows nothing; we know this in countless ways.” -Blaise Pascal

Quinn is so fr17571215agile, looking for ways to comfort herself, to find that peace that she longs to get. And that’s why she writes the letters. Since her boyfriend died a year ago, her family has been giving her sh*t just because it’s been over a year. But when you lose someone you love, there’s no way you can get over it. Trent’s family decides to give the organs to people who needed them. Quinn has wrote letters to each one of them, and only one hasn’t answered, the one person who received his heart.

Colton Hayes is the receiver of the heart. She finds him, and between the two of them there’s a world full of discover, adventures, and lots of water (LOL). Colton is around Quinn’s age, and he’s  is beautiful. I fell in love as soon as I read him. They weren’t supposed to fall in love, especially since Quinn was still mourning Trent, but there’s always a reason why things happen–the quote in the beginning.

I loved how the story develops. I think that people underestimate the value of a heart, and that this book brings it back to life. For me a heart is more than an organ; that’s why I take care of it the most. Is the most vital organ for a human body, but also for a human soul.
