Haunted with guilt after his girlfriend's death, Daniel Hudson has no interest in committing to anyone. At the end of the summer, he'll be leaving Florida for a new start in college. If only he could avoid the mysterious new girl in town, who seems every bit as naive and eccentric as she looks. Trouble is, she's hard to ignore, with her beautiful piercing eyes, pitiful-looking dog, and unsettling tendency of finding trouble. Clover Scott lived her whole life off the grid and arrives on the Gulf coast in search of her grandparents. She never expected to nearly drown, or get caught in a hurricane, or fall in love with the boy who rescues her. Now, she has a chance to rewrite her life's story, to finally fit in somewhere, but Daniel wants answers about her past. When the police start asking questions about the disappearance of her parents, she must make a choice: go to jail or confess her secrets-even if they might destroy her chance at a happily-ever-after.

I don’t know about you, but I love mysterious books. That’s what really drew me into this wonderful story! The Secret to Letting Go follows two characters: Daniel and Clover. Daniel lives in Florid and really can’t wait to leave. His girlfriend recently committed suicide and now he just wants out. However, after a strange girl named Clover walks into his sports shop, everything changes. 

Clover is a very unique character; she hides almost everything about herself and doesn’t seem to know much about the world at all. She barely even knows what television shows and movies are. Plus, she’s scared of the police and lives out of her own car! Why does she hide everything? You’ll have to read the book to find out!

I was on edge for a lot of this book because I was so curious about the pasts of both Daniel and Clover. I mean, they both were hiding things! The biggest thing when it came to Daniel was his ex, Grace. I was really curious about that. The biggest mystery about Clover is why she knew so little about the world. She was such a cool character!

One thing I definitely loved about this book was the dual perspectives. I’m always a huge fan of that, because it really gets the reader into the minds of more than one person. I definitely preferred being inside Clover’s head, only because I just wanted to know what was going on with her. If you’re a big fan of mysterious contemporaries, I highly suggest checking this one out.
