Our lives are a collection of moments. Some utterly painful and full of yesterday's hurts. Some beautifully hopeful and full of tomorrow's promises.
I’ve had many moments in my lifetime, moments that changed me, challenged me. Moments that scared me and engulfed me. However, the biggest ones—the most heartbreaking and breathtaking ones—all included him.
I was ten years old when I lost my voice. A piece of me was stolen away, and the only person who could truly hear my silence was Brooks Griffin. He was the light during my dark days, the promise of tomorrow, until tragedy found him. Tragedy that eventually drowned him in a sea of memories.
This is the story of a boy and girl who loved each other, but didn’t love themselves. A story of life and death. Of love and broken promises.

"The world keeps spinning because your heartbeats exist."
Oh... My.... get ready for some tears. This book made me so emotional. Brittainy C. Cherry seriously knows how to write a moving story.
When Maggie was a child, she was talkative, optimistic, and innocent. She had plans. Plans that involved marrying Brooks.
The kids were going to meet in the woods for their wedding. Unfortunately, Maggie runs into something traumatizing. This event changes her life, and she losses her voice.
Even though Maggie doesn't speak, Brooks knows how to listen to her. He is the sweetest boy, and his actions will make your heart explode. His dreams involve becoming a professional musician, but his heart is forever connected to Maggie.
I love how this story takes place throughout their childhood, teenage years, and adulthood. They have so many challenges. Their struggles spread to their family and best friends. Everything about this book just touches my heart. This is definitely one of my favorites this year.
Brittainy Cherry has been in love with words since the day she took her first breath. She graduated from Carroll University with a Bachelors Degree in Theatre Arts and a minor in Creative Writing. She loves to take part in writing screenplays, acting, and dancing-- poorly of course. Coffee, chai tea, and wine are three things that she thinks every person should partake in! Brittainy lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with her family. When she's not running a million errands and crafting stories, she's probably playing with her adorable pets.
