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.

(MY THOUGHTS)
  Blink Once is a beautiful, heart-gripping story. Cylin Busby goes for the heart strings in this amazing love story and she doesn’t let you go even after you’ve read the last page of West and Olivia’s meant-to-be, but can't love. And with this story being shown to us through West's point of view, who is a seventeen year old guy, that made it a more powerful read for me. I love seeing West’s guy thoughts and feelings in this tender storyline. Busby is a wonderful writer, she will bring you to tears for West, but will replace them with a smile of joy for him in the heart-melting ending.

West races BMX bikes, and after a horrible accident that leaves him paralyzed, he can’t handle living in his body that doesn’t work any more. But when West meets Olivia, he knows she’s the only one who understands what he's going through, and the only one who can help him. Olivia is the most unusual, confusing, beautiful, mysterious, and amazing girl that West has ever met. West knows he was meant to meet Olivia and he was meant to fall in love with her. What West didn't know, is that the promise he’s made to Olivia, he will never be able to keep.

Blink Once is an amazingly beautiful love story about two people that no matter what barriers separate and you have to across to find your true love, you will find each other and it will always be a love that you will keep forever inside your heart. And this is West and Olivia’s story, a love that was meant to happen. I highly recommend Blink Once as a must read.
