Olive Bell has spent her entire life in the beautiful suburb of Vista Valley, with a picture-perfect home, a loving family, and a seemingly perfect boyfriend. But after a near-fatal car accident, she’s haunted by a broken heart and a melody that she cannot place.
Then Olive meets Nick. He’s dark, handsome, mysterious . . . and Olive feels connected to him in a way she can’t explain. Is there such a thing as fate? The two embark on a whirlwind romance—until Nick makes a troubling confession.
Heartbroken, Olive pieces together what really happened the night of her accident and arrives at a startling revelation. Only by facing the truth can she uncover the mystery behind the song and the power of what it means to love someone.
First let me start off by saying, I really like this cover. I find it very appealing. Definitely made me wonder what's the story between these two. I'm guilty for judging a book by it's cover so it definitely piqued my interest. This is definitely an interesting read. In this novel, you meet Olive, your main character. Olive was in a horrible accident that she actually died in. But lucky for her she was revived. And that's what the story is mostly about. How she tries to pick up the pieces after coming home from the hospital.
After Olive came home from the hospital, something wasn't adding up for me. (You'll find out later on in the book) Her boyfriend all of a sudden didn't want anything to do with her. He started dating another girl. And in my opinion, Olive became weak. She wanted him so much that her attitude really bothered me. She really let him get to her and bring her down. Stories like this usually infuriate me and I never finish reading the novel. However, there is a turn around.
Lucky for her, things changed after she met Nick at a support group. This is where the story redeemed itself. Nick was a free spirit and the character development between the two was great. I really enjoyed their page time together. They were both two lost souls who needed one another. Their story was really interesting and they really made the book even more worth reading. Sadly, Olive isn't my favorite character, Nick was. Nick was more interesting to me. He brought so much to the story. So if there's a sequel, I'll read it mostly because of Nick.
I really did enjoy Our Song. It was a quick, fast and easy read. This book is a little hard to rate, for me it's between 3.5 stars to 4 stars. But since this book grabbed me from the beginning I'll give it a 4stars!! This book is also part of our "Read To Give". So one lucky commenter will get a chance to win this book.
