Four out of Five Stars
This is billed as a mystery but to me, it was more of a novel with a twist at the end of the book. I kept getting confused between what was a flash back and what was current time, but I'm going to blame myself being too tired when I read for that.
The story reminded me the tiniest bit of "It", in that it's about a group of adolescents who play in the woods, and a tragedy causes a total loss of innocence. Fast forward to the kids, all grown up, and the secrets they've kept for years come to a head when one of their group suddenly dies.
The last line of the book will stick with me for a while.
A good read, but do better than I did at keeping up with who is who and when is when.

Oh I should know better than to read Nicholas Sparks. He'll drive you to tears every single time.
My only complaint about this star-crossed lovers tale is Dawson was way too complacent. FIGHT buddy! Get the girl! Make yourself happy for once!
Read with tissues.
