At first I picked this book up from the school library thinking, ‘This will picked this book up thinking 'be nice for the summer. It sounds very cute and will not break my heart with a bad event happening to one of the characters.’ It was AMAZING AND SO CUTE but parts broke my heart…
The plot was so well thought out and intriguing that I could not put the book down. It just kept getting better and better then got interesting then MAJOR PLOT TWIST and I couldn’t stop reading it!
Also, it was written perfectly! The descriptions were perfect. The language used was perfect. The whole book was perfect! I absolutely loved the way the emotions were described the best. It made my heart flip, melt, break and stop for moments.
As for the characters, I loved all of them. However, at first I disliked the main character, Emily, because she kept talking about feeling a romantic connection and being in love with someone she just met. Though, I did come to love her and Sam.
Sam is Emily’s boyfriend. His dad, Clarence, is a criminal who has to move around a lot and brings his two sons, Sam and his little brother Riddle, with him. Sam and Riddle are left to look for their own food, find a place to go during the day and aren’t cared for. I instantly loved Sam because he always thought about and helped other people before himself and was so caring!
Overall, this book was beautifully written and I fell in love with it. I would recommend this book to ANYONE!
