I don't even know how and where to start describing this book. It's absolutely brilliant and I think that beautiful wouldn't even suffice. I love how Anne Eliot created her characters. They're very real and easy to relate to.
This is my first time reading an Anne Eliot novel and I am so happy because I was given an opportunity to read this book. I came across this book earlier this month on Goodreads because I was looking for new book recs. I have been wanting to read this since I saw it because I really liked the blurb. Fortunately, Anne Eliot did not fail me. If any, this book had exceeded my expectations. I thought that this might just be like any contemporary romance, but nope. It's got the right mix of romance, comedy and drama.
I liked Ellen's personality. She's really strong and independent. I salute her for being that strong despite of her disability. She's a great inspiration to everyone. Patrick's and Laura's characters were really amazing background characters. I loved them individually and as a pair, especially Laura, being Irish and all that spontaneity in her. I loved their energy in every scene that they were part of. Camden Campbell... where do I start with Camden Campbell? It seems that I found another book boyfriend, eh? He may look like a total jock-type of guy, but nope! The guy is a total dork! And guess what? I love dorky guys! He's just so cute! The way he blushes, the way he plans his way to talk to Ellen and all other stuff makes my heart melt over and over again.
I also liked the pop culture references, like Teen Wolf and I have to agree with Ellen about Isaac Lahey and Stiles Stilinski. Hahaha! The conflicts in the story, this is where things go realistic. It seems like the author really knows what teenagers are facing and having struggles in life. The way she presented these conflicts and issues really speaks straight to me. It's very relatable and it's one of the things that I love about a book.
I have to admit, the ending was really unexpected and a bit of a shocker for me. I can't wait to get my head into the next book. I am really really excited to read it!
