At time of purchase, this book was a freebie download from The Sun perks.

Caleb Tanner meets new next door neighbour, Sylvie Cranston when their both just ten. After a few years of a no-go friendship, their friendship blossoms when Caleb teaches Sylvie how to fish. By fourteen hormones are raging and Caleb finds himself falling for Sylvie but is somewhat rejected. At sixteen, she's gone, died!

Or so he's told. But Cal doesn't believe it. Caleb was connected to Sylvie heart and soul, he'd know if she had died. It's 9 years later and over the 9 years Cal has had flings, but never found a soul mate and never gave hope of finding his Sylvie. He's a teacher now, teaching English at a community college far away from his home town. And there's a girl, a girl who looks just like Sylvie, except her names Sophie Becker and Cal is drawn to her in away he thought wasn't possible and he's determined to get to the bottom of this girls story because deep down he knows it's none other then Sylvie. 

My Thoughts 
This is a good read, it really shows the depth of never giving up and always having hope. Along the way, this novel, had twists and turns and at times I thought, like the rest of the people in cal' life, he was losing the plot. I couldn't have been more wrong. I enjoyed the relationship rekindle, even if it was ever-so-quickly and the fact they had known each other for such a long time - was quite cute. I did find the rekindling, at times, to be very fifty shades for some reason, I think has a character Cal had a very Christian Grey feel about him, that came across as quite domineering. Score 3.5/5.
