Pero tres años después, a los 16, los hermanos ya no se hablan. Algo pasó entre ellos que arruinó dramáticamente su relación y los llevó por caminos diferentes. Entonces Jude conoce a un chico guapo, frágil y arrogante... y a alguien más, una nueva fuerza en su vida, todavía más impredecible y ligada a su pasado de forma inevitable. Los primeros años de esta historia los cuenta Noah; los últimos, Jude. Lo que ninguno comprende es que apenas conocen la mitad de la historia. Si tan sólo pudieran compartirla..."--Amazon.
