Title: A Girl by Any Other Name
Author: M.K. Schiller
Rating: 4 Shooting Stars

Everyone tells him he needs to move on, but how can a man function without his heart? 

 Ten-year-old Caleb Tanner wants nothing to do with Sylvie Cranston, the annoying weird girl who moves next door to him and gets him in trouble for swearing. But at twelve, they become friends when he teaches her how to hook a fishing line and she shows him the value of a selfless act. At fourteen, he falls in love with her. 

 At sixteen, she dies. 

 Or so he’s told. But Cal never believes it. Sylvie has become part of his soul. He knows her like the steady beating of his own heart. He’d know if she was dead. Cal looks for her, prays for her and finally he just waits for her. 

 Nine years later, she walks into the community college English class Cal is teaching. Only this girl claims her name is Sophie Becker and she doesn’t know him. Cal knows better. He’s determined to get the girl he loves back—and protect her from the danger that took her away all those years ago.

A Girl by Any Other Name begins when us getting to see how Cal and Sylvie meet at such a young age. The book sort of goes from the past to the present. It shows up what happened to lead up till the present. Which is basically these two meet, and Cal grows to love Sylvie but then something horrible happens and the say she's dead. Or is she??

 This book takes us on a crazy journey of a love that is unforgettable. These two people end up becoming wonderful friends at such a young age, and develop a love that is unlike anything you've ever witnessed before. But Sylvie is hiding things that can not be explained. And when every one else says she's dead Cal doesn't believe it. He feels like he would know inside his heart if she was actually dead or alive, and he knows she isn't dead. Even though every thinks he's losing his mind he still has hope for her even after almost ten years... This book was very unique, and very moving. I really enjoyed. It was so beautifully written that it had me on edge waiting to figure out what was going on from the very start. And the characters were wonderful as well. I loved this book. And I highly recommend it.
