it was amazing
Read 2 times
This was my third read from this amazing author and she blew me away.. This is a continuation to her first two books but could be read as a stand alone..
The subject matter was written with so much compassion and understanding for both male and female characters and l am not ashamed to say had me in tears during this read... The heartache and vulnerability was so easily felt and l easily connected to both characters and at times just wanting to wrap both of them in my arms to make them feel whole...
We pick up this story, meeting and walking thru the lives of Wesley and Anna. Anna being the ex girlfriend of Charlie from Unconventional.. With just a tease from the other book, we find out so much more about Anna and you cant help but want to hold her and comfort her for choices made when she was a teenager.. Wesley just gets into your heart from the very first mention of him, well it was like that for me..
As this book takes us thru not just children to adolescent but also a decade after that you get a real sense of watching them develop and grow, thru good and bad choices and the general unfairness of life for some.... And provided some refreshing twists in the storyline as well.. This book had everything for me- slow burn, vulnerability,angst and a lovely mix of humor... With a few added quirky inclusions of books and authors l absolutely loved these adds.
But this author has given us a very real and emotional situation and handled it with understanding and empathy..The characters were so easily relatable and you instantly took them into your heart... As the story progresses, you easily get more invested to the point, that you want to know the outcome but don't want the story to end... Definitely one of my top reads for this year, and if you are not familiar with this author l would say take a chance and read because you will not be disappointed....
