I'm in love. That's right, I'm officially in love with this book! And its weird because usually contemporary is not my thing, but this book is definitely one of my favourites like, ever. Its full of so many surprises, and there's this whole family element to it that's really relatable and sweet. Plus the love interests are to die for so, you know, what else could you ask for in a book? LOL but ya, loved this one like crazy! Its one of those books that when you finish, you immediately want to read it again so you can stay wrapped up in the world a little bit longer.
This book kept surprising me in the most wonderful ways, both with the plot and just my overall enjoyment of the story. Of course, there were many predictable elements and twists (like it was a little too obvious who sent out her secret letters), but wowowow the character developments went in directions that I didn't see coming. I love when your opinion of a character changes as a story goes along, it makes the book a lot more dynamic and also a lot more genuine. Because its true to real-life that your first impression of someone is never accurate to how they really are. Like people change and surprise you in the real world as you get to know them, and that's something this book explored, which is one of the reasons why I loved it so much. And speaking of genuine, this book was full of realistic drama, none of that over-the-top stuff I so often see in YA books. It wasn't just drama between friends or boyfriend-girlfriend drama, but there was a lot of focus on family, sisters especially, and I really enjoyed that! I found it to be incredibly relatable, which I think a great contemporary should always be.
Amazing. Fantastic. Wonderful. Fabulous. All the best praise is what this book deserves. I was laughing, squealing, sighing, raging, and cheering the whole way through, and now I can't get the story or the characters out of my head! I'll definitely have to re-read this one again soon, it was that good! And ooooo, apparently this is supposed to be part of a duology, which is crazy exciting (and also crazy upsetting cause it'll be at least another year before the second book comes out - but whatevaaa)! So yaaa, I would obviously recommend this book if you're looking for an awesome contemporary. Its pretty much the sweetest thing you'll ever read :)
