Description:

First came love, then came marriage, and then...

For seventeen-year-old Tam, running off to marry her musician boyfriend is the ideal escape from her claustrophobic high-school life on the island, and the ultimate rebellion against her father and stepmother. But when Tam becomes a widow just weeks later, the shell-shocked teen is forced to find her way forward by going back to the life she thought she’d moved beyond—even as her struggle to deal with her grief is forcing her to reinvent herself and reach out to others in ways she never imagined.

My Thoughts: 

Tam has lost her husband and she's only 17.  From the moment her husband Noah died she has been trying to figure out what to do next or find her way in the world.  After a bunch of disastrous situations she decides to get on the straight and narrow and figure out where to go from being a widow.

I loved the rawness of this book and reading about all Tam's ups and downs and how she was going to get past it all.  I really think this book is great for widows who make mistakes and learn from them!
