Thirteen tells his sweet and hilarious story. “It all comes rushing back to me. Friday the 13th. Hospital. Operation. No […]

Book review + Excerpt: Remembering Everly ~ J.L. Berg

A couple of months ago I’ve read Forgetting August, the first part of the Lost & Found Duet. This book ended in a cliffhanger, and Remembering Everly is the conclusion to the story of August and Everly.
