This is a great story about letting the past go and learning to move on with your life. When something tragic happens, we are changed inside and out. This story tells a tale of learning to become whole again.What I enjoyed most about this story are the characters. The growth and change in them is slowly built yet very appreciated by the reader. The struggle of Jude and what he faces leaves me heart broken. To carry such a weight on his shoulders is a lot for a kid. Jude did a great job in facing his past and wanting to make a change in his life.The plot of the book flowed nicely. While Jude is facing his past regrets, he is also falling in love. I like that the plot did not rush through the love but rather it grew with the characters. Both characters in love gave the same they need as well the time to learn. The plot also had many plot twist that kept me reading till the ned.There's no questions that I loved this love interest. Beautifully formed, the love that is there is the redemption. It eases the pain that held on to Jude for so long. To see him find love, to confess and face his haunting past, the love helps me through it.Before You Go is a life changing tale of forgiveness. Jude is an amazing well-written characters who growth is tremendous. Facing a dark past with a partner right next to you is what love is all about. Love fixes all things.
