Blink Once by Cylin Busby

I received this e-ARC from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.  I've heard great things about Blink Once so I'm so glad to have gotten this chance to read it.  Here is the Goodreads blurb:

West is a high school senior who has everything going for him until an accident leaves him paralyzed. Strapped down in his hospital bed, slipping in and out of consciousness, West is terrified and alone. Until he meets Olivia. She's the girl next door-sort of. A patient in the room next to his, only Olivia can tell what West is thinking, and only Olivia seems to know that the terrible dreams he's been having are not just a result of his medication. Yet as West comes to rely on Olivia-to love her, even-certain questions pull at him: Why has Olivia been in the hospital for so long? And what does it mean that she is at the center of his nightmares? But the biggest question of all comes when West begins to recover and learns that the mysterious girl he's fallen in love with has a secret he could never have seen coming.
There is a reason that this book has so many fans and a 4 star rating on Goodreads.  Blink Once is an amazing story of life, love, and things beyond the realm of science.  West is a really engaging character who grows so much over the course of the story that you can't help but cheer for him.  As things come together for West as he heals it will tug at your heart and give you hope that people can come back from awful things.  Life goes on.  I really don't want to say anything that will give things away or ruin the story for you.  But I will say that everyone should read this story.  It will grip you and change you.  Cylin Busby has written a true gem.
