This book was better than I thought! Although the way it kept going back and forth from past to present could be confusing at times. How do you think the relationship between Ellie and Jim turns out? Does Ellie's father miss her at all, or even care? And yanzhang1234, I think that Jim's sisters still think he's dead. And Jim probably knew Ellie was at the beach. I don't think it's a coincidence. But I agree with you, that the book has cliffhangers and plot twists on every chapter.
