The Day Before - Lisa Schroeder

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 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 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.

My review, in verse. 

There was a girl.
There was a boy.
There was a day.
The Day Before.
New realities
Converging under
The stars.
The rustle of the wind
Enticing, beckoning,
Follow me.
Waves roaring in,
Water lapping
Against the shore.
One girl. One boy. One day.
Experiences felt,
Remembered.
Committed to memory.
One girl, one boy. 
Heartbreaking reality,
Haunting faces.
Empowering moments.
I want to break free!
Always, tirelessly
Caressing the sky.
Unrepentant, embracing
New directions.
The Day Before.
Realistic and heartbreaking
In portrayal.
Goosebumps erupt
As time draws to a close
For one girl.
One boy.
One day.

Lisa Schroeder
Has done it
Again.
Turbulence erupts
As emotions
Break free.
Mesmerizing an audience,
held captive.
Rising for
A standing ovation.

LOVED the Review Rhyme (Maybe we can create a portmanteau? ...Revyme? Rhyview? Hmmm...)

This books sounds like a weepy one. Is it a weepy one?
