4.5 stars. I absolutely loved this book. I loved the growth of both MCs in the this book: Taff for finally realizing Zach is an adult and can take care of himself and that he can't always protect Zach from everything, and Zach for realizing that talking about it and getting his story out there will help him heal. Also for how strong he is for living through the ordeal and also telling the world his story and also having the courage to go to Boston on his own. My only issue was the epilogue. We basically skipped Zach's time in Boston and went right to his graduation, but there wasn't any reunion between he and Taff in the book. It would have been nice to see them adjusting after Zach comes back to CA to go to Stanford.
