Walker Books, 2011. ISBN 978 1 4063 1729 9.
When two strangers meet and fall in love, the world is suddenly lost and the other person is their life raft. Jack and Bethany feel like this and when nobody wants the two to be in love, they fight for what they truly want - each other - but when family gets in the way, what is really left to do? When family members are lost, sick, worried, back unexpectedly, Jack and Bethany have to fight harder to keep their love and stay in one piece - but sometimes, can family have the strongest potential to break that love? Jack and Bethany experience what it means to have a true love connection, but will it work for them? Love is uncontrollable and you can't help who your heart chooses.
I loved how even though they had to fight hard and at everyone they still tried to make that love last. I sympathized for Jack and Bethany because all they had to go through they still loved each other. Fighting fate is hard, but fighting family is even harder. This book shows the true colours of a fight-worthy love. I love fight-worthy loves stories and this book is among them.
