Book Blurb –
Lena Wise is always looking forward to tomorrow, especially at the start of her senior year. She’s ready to pack in as much friend time as possible, to finish college application, and to maybe let her childhood best friend Sebastian know how he really feels about him. For Lena, the upcoming year is going to be epic – one of opportunities and chances. Until one choice, one moment, destroys everything. Now Lena isn’t looking forward to tomorrow. Not when friend time may never be the same. Not when college applications feel all but impossible. Not when Sebastian might never forgive her for what happened. For what she let happen. With guilt growing each day, Lena knows that her only hope is to move on. But how can she move on when she and her friends’ entire existence have been redefined?
My Thoughts –
I was given a copy of this book from the publishes a couple of weeks ago and I am so glad that I have had the chance to read this book. It is deep and powerful and a must read for anyone looking for something a little bit on the emotionally darker side.
The story follows Lena as she is finishing off school. Her and her very close friends are trying to have the time of their lives, but then one really stupid things happen and everything changes. Gripped by pain and guilt, Lena’s life is no longer on the path she once thought it was going to follow. And not only that, her deep feelings for her best friend that lives next door are changing and doesn’t know how she feels about that. With teenage anxiety, death and gripping emotions, this book isn’t just about losing loved ones, it is about losing yourself to emotions and finding people to help you come out of the darkness.
I loved this book, although it waffled for a bit and a lot of it was very repetitive, it really did like it. I didn’t think that I would simply because it was so deep and emotionally driven, but the way the author has taken this very serious situation and turned it into a life lesson is just amazing.
The writing is amazing as is the character development. Some of the characters are truly annoying but then they turn out to be alright because their thoughts and feelings are explained and all if well. It is a hard read emotionally, but a read that should be undertaken by all teenagers.
If you like deep and emotional teenage drama, than this is the book for you.
I give this book 4.0 out of 5 Booky Stars!
