Sunny Skies is drowning. The problem, besides the whole not being able to breathe part, is that when her life flashes before her eyes, she doesn't recognize any of it. Convinced the universe phoned in a default slideshow, Sunny gives in to the current.
After a fisherman snags the 26-year-old in his net, she decides it's time to cast off her hermitlike ways. When she meets slightly-less-awkward-than-her Brian, an archery-loving neat freak, she discovers that living her new life might be scarier than drowning. But scary or not, this may be the only chance for Sunny Skies.

I only had the opportunity to listen to the audio version, but I think it was better- it definitely enhanced the characters and made the story seem that much more genuine.
I can't express how much I enjoyed this, there were so many laughing moments, cringe worthy moments and finally the 'aww' moments. I haven't heard, or even read, many books that portray reality so well- at least in the way they're written. Once I began listening to this I didn't want to stop- it only really took me a while because of my too busy routine. I don't think I could ever get enough of this. The characters were portrayed very well, also: I felt that even though I don't suffer from social anxiety, I could still relate - I hate and shy away from the idea of being in video recordings almost as much as I hate the sound of my voice on record. This book taught the very much needed life lesson that one should take a step out of their comfort zone.The storyline was imaginative, the way Sunny received her wake up call was intriguing. Though it didn't take away the realism: as even she didn't understand the meaning, it was only until later on. During the particularly cringe worthy moments, my thoughts reflected almost the same thing Sunny had been thinking. You don't get many books with characters who are so damn relatable and comedic too. The narrator or performer enhanced the experience for sure. I definitely enjoyed it and will not hesitate in telling my friend's about it. Another feeling I experienced was this sense of intrigue and curiosity, both of which were piqued when Sunny began to experience the visions in her life- I kept wondering how would the next image fit. I'm glad there was no love triangle, instead the book focused on the development of one beautiful relationship.I also loved how despite this having been a romantic book, it wasn't cliché in its romantic element: there was no completely dashing guy, he actually had faults.Oh my, the number of books I have read which feature one 'perfect' man....I'm glad that this doesn't contribute to my list.I am thankful I had the opportunity to hear this, I can't recommend it enough
This was definitely a book I would have loved to have listened to in one sitting, but there just ain't enough time.
