It is my first time Reading anything by Heather Demetrios but after it I'm sure it won't be the last. I'll Meet You There was much more than the light summer romance I was expecting. It carried a powerful message about the terrible struggle of a life post war. A story about a troubled girl and a wounded Young soldier.

I can go on about how much I loved the characters. About how captivating everything was. How the story grabbed you and didn't let you go. But I'd be missing the point I want to make. About how it is so important to acknowledge what is happening out there with all these young soldiers and how coming home alive is not the hardest part.

Really my heart ached along Skylar and Josh. And Marge. And everything this book stands for. It was a wonderful change of pace in the midst of cookie-cutter "conventional" love stories. Truly recommended to those of us who need a little reality check about how life is not the easiest for most of our young adults.
