Blink Once by Cylin Busby
Amazon / Goodreads
Blurb via Goodreads-
"West is a high school senior who has everything going for him until an accident leaves him paralyzed. Strapped down in his hospital bed, slipping in and out of consciousness, West is terrified and alone. Until he meets Olivia. She’s the girl next door—sort of. A patient in the room next to his, only Olivia can tell what West is thinking, and only Olivia seems to know that the terrible dreams he’s been having are not just a result of his medication. Yet as West comes to rely on Olivia—to love her, even—certain questions pull at him: Why has Olivia been in the hospital for so long? And what does it mean that she is at the center of his nightmares? But the biggest question of all comes when West begins to recover and learns that the mysterious girl he’s fallen in love with has a secret he could never have seen coming."
Blink Once was an amazing read. I was quickly pulled into the story and could not put it down. While to me, the ending was predictable, it was still written extremely well. This was such a heartbreaking and beautiful love story and I would love to read a sequel to it. Cylin Busby is a fantastic writer and I hope to read more.
5 out of 5 stars Highly Recommend to anyone
