La forza dell'amore a sedici anni è dirompente: ti sconvolge, ti fa volare e a volte, quando tutto il resto sembra andare a rotoli, ti salva la vita. Ma può anche distruggerti. È quello che capita a Lizzie quando un giorno Roman - la sua àncora, il suo amico, la sua boccata d'ossigeno - scompare senza lasciare traccia. Dodici anni dopo, quando ormai la sua vita scorre placida, sostenuta da tante piccole rassicuranti certezze, Lizzie riceve una lettera. È di Roman, ed è datata dicembre 2005: il giorno stesso in cui di lui si erano perse le tracce. All'improvviso i ricordi dolorosi riemergono e con essi le promesse infrante del loro amore. La lettera diventa l'unica traccia da seguire per scoprire cosa sia successo a Roman. Una caccia al tesoro piena di imprevisti, incontri e colpi di scena, per ricostruire la verità di una vita lasciata a metà e di una storia che non ha mai trovato lo spazio per sbocciare. Un mistero che porta con sé la speranza di un nuovo inizio.

I just finished it and oh, this was a journey. I cried, I was melancholic, I was happy. I loved how it deals with mental health so it's not a light read but it's still positive.
