** This is a novella **
While other high school seniors are dreaming about their futures, Sophie and Carter are just trying to make it through each day. Carter is overwhelmed by issues at home as he struggles to support his mother. Meanwhile, next door neighbor Sophie is left to care for her three younger siblings in place of their absent and troubled mother. All that holds these two best friends together is each other, and knowing that each night they'll sit together on Sophie's front porch swing and escape from reality, if just for awhile. But as their relationship reaches a turning point and high school graduation nears, will their friendship become something more?

My Review:  
Well, well, will a hard life but sweet nights from a porch swing trying to escape from what has become their life, be the making of an Ever Lasting True Love for two teens?

Author Chelsea Fine has written a exciting way of writing a story with characters that make you fall in love with them at first sight. Her writing style tease's you in and one minute you are not so sure what is going on then before you realize it you are almost to the last page and you still are not sure what is going to happen next. With laughter, crying, from love to hate in just a few pages.

Character Sophie is a teen that has had more ups and downs than anyone should have in their whole life. But how does she handle it? What are her real dreams for her future? And then there is the character Carter. Talk about things that make nightmares. This poor boy doesn't seem to have a chance at a wonderful life. But each night these two some how manage to find each other and on a porch with what seems to carry them into another world. 

To they live Happy Everlasting or Will Real Life Prevail? You will need to read to find out. 
Or will you find out the End of Their Story?  

There you have it. My thoughts on this crazy dreaming struggles of two teenager trying to make sense of their life. 

And now my Breath of Life Rating is:

Five Clock Rating!!

About the Author:  

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. She lives with her husband and two children, who graciously tolerate her inability to resist teenage drama on TV and her complete lack of skill in the kitchen.

I write, I paint, I drink coffee and I love superheroes. I fail at cooking and putting laundry away and I have a minor addiction to reading. Okay, major.
