The Day Before by Lisa Schroeder
Released: 28 June 2011
I haven't read any of this authors previous work but I've heard great things about them and this particular novel sounds like a major tearjerker that will captivate us from start to finish. It actually reminds me a little of Before I Fall which was a major hit amongst bloggers.
Summary from Goodreads: Sometimes there's no turning back. Amber's life is spinning out of control. All she wants is to turn up the volume on her iPod until all of the demands of her family and friends fade away. So she sneaks off to the beach to spend a day by herself. Then Amber meets Cade. Their attraction is instant, and Amber can tell that he's also looking for an escape. Together they decide to share a perfect day: no pasts, no fears, no regrets. The more time that Amber spends with Cade, the more she's drawn to him. And the more she's troubled by his darkness. Because Cade's not just living in the now--he's living each moment like it's his last.
