They exist in two different centuries, but their love defies time
Cassandra craves drama and adventure, so the last thing she wants is to spend her summer marooned with her mother and stepfather in a snooty Massachusetts shore town. But when a dreamy stranger shows up on their private beach claiming it's his own—and that the year is 1925—she is swept into a mystery a hundred years in the making.
As she searches for answers in the present, Cassandra discovers a truth that puts their growing love—and Lawrence's life—into jeopardy. Desperate to save him, Cassandra must find a way to change history…or risk losing Lawrence forever.

This was a great young adult love story between two centuries. Cassandra is your typical teen in the 21st century, dragged along on a family summer vacation she doesn't want to be part of. Cassandra is trying to find her way as a teen, rebelling against her mom and step-father. Cassandra heads to the beach to get away from one of her parents parties to find a stranger on their private beach. This is where we met Lawrence and learn that he is from 1925 and this is his uncles private beach.
Lawrence and Cassandra can only spend time together on the beach and find themselves back there waiting to see the other all the time. What will happen if something in the past gets changed, how will it affect the future, where Cassandra lives? This is a story of romance, time travel and a little bit of mystery. The characters are very easy to like, I do think they could have been a little more complex and developed. I did like both of them very much. I found this story to be enchanting moving between 1925 and 2015, the story is told by both of the main characters point of view but mostly by Cassandra. Can Cassandra help Lawrence with a mystery that will likely change the future? Falling in love with Lawrence will they be able to be together outside of the private beach.
I devoured this book in a couple of days and really felt connect with the characters especially Lawrence. I also really liked the ending. I give this book a 4.5 out of 5 stars.
