I love the premise of this book–friendship stories are my favorites. I’m so hoping that the lightning strike memory event is well written and believable. Your post makes me want to head to the ocean!

I love the cover of this one. Interested in seeing what happens with the 360 in her life. When you stated you broke your nose because you hadn’t seen black ice Bella from Twilight popped into my head (from the movie). LOL
