Harriet Reuter Hapgood did an exceptional job with her debut novel. This book takes you on Gottie's whimsical journey of love while trying to understand how to deal with grief. It shows you how deep of a family connection Gottie's family has. Right, in the beginning, you are introduced to a world of physics with some german words thrown in. If you don't understand it, don't worry. Hapgood doesn't make it complicated in the story. I loved the setting of where the story takes place.

The characters in this story are lovable. You become attached to all of them. The story focuses on Gottie and her grandfather Grey while also focusing on her friendship with Thomas. I love how Gottie over analyzes every person, friendship, relationship she's ever had. Something strange starts happening that makes her question things which is where physics plays a role. She enlists the help of her teacher. Her summer should be filled with fun but instead, she's writing mathematic equations all over, trying to find an answer to her problem.

The story overall is beautiful and like I said before, whimsical. This would make a great tv show. Once you read the book, you'll understand why. It's a great summer read. I give this book 5/5 stars!
