Ray and Sasha lived in the same beach house for 17 years, but they have never met one another. Once upon a time, Ray’s mother was married to Sasha’s dad, but the marriage ended on bad terms as they can no longer stand each other. The only thing left of their damaged relationship is their three children, Quinn, Emma and Mattie. During the summer, the lives of these two families become entangled with one another. Secrets are revealed, relationship are repaired, and sparks begin to fly. This was the most confusing book I have ever read. It was written in the perspective of five characters and there was nothing to signify who was speaking. Every chapter is in at least three different character’s perspectives. To make matters worse, the plot was all over the place. I would never recommend this book to anyone.

What is it like to have a counterpart? Another person that is so similar to you, but utterly real and almost your opposite/complimentary? Sasha and Ray, of a complex family, have never met each other. Yet, they have shared the same room, bed, books, sisters, and so much more. (This is all the result of marriage and divorce and remarriage). Sometimes, they imagine what it would be like to meet the other. Until they do... I enjoyed this book for the most part, as it did have its nice ups and downs. The elaboration on dynamics (family) was quite helpful, but I think that the relationship between Sasha and Ray wasn't quite "enough" for certain things to have happened.
