I just finished and I could not wait to do this review:
This book is not what I expected. It stirred up feelings of loves had, loves which escaped, and getting too up in your head to see what is in front of you. It touches on topics like friendship, veganism, courting, wanting and not getting, having and not wanting, and DESSERTS!!! The author is able to paint a picture of teenage life that is fun and positive yet still fraught with all the competing passions, confusing thoughts, and temptations that go along with it. I was especially and particularly surprised by the playlist aspect. There is a Spotify playlist which accompanies the story. The songs are weaved into the story (i.e. during a dream, in the car, at the house or out at a restaurant). You can hear what the characters are listening to while reading! It really adds another dimension and helped me feel the intensity of the moments. So much so, in a few cases, that I actually had to put the book down and collect myself!
Ok, now for the kissing scenes. I don't want to give too much away, but there are several and they are GOOOOOD;). Not gross either. They are poetic at times, graphic at others. Descriptive and passionate with just the right amount of awkwardness. This is what I was waiting for. I found myself drawn in and wanting more...Read and enjoy!
