I absolutely love-loved this book!!! The story was so sweet, yet heart-wrenching. I was hoping for a different ending, but the ending Cylin Busby wrote was absolutely perfect! This was a short read, and quickly landed it's self on my favorites list. Blink Once was so touching!
Waking up in the hospital is the last thing West expected. He couldn't move or talk, he was paralyzed from a biking accident. He is distraught because he has no way to figure out how he got here or how long he has been in the hospital. He is plagued with terrible nightmares too. That was until he meets Olivia. She was the girl in the room next to him. She figures out a way to communicate with West, and the two eventually fall in love. She checks on him when he isn't well, takes walks with him, and even reads Harry Potter to him.
Soon, West's parents hire a doctor to do an experimental surgery on him in hopes that he'll recover. After the surgery, West is determined to get back to Olivia. But there are secrets that he has to unravel, secrets that Olivia didn't tell him...
