This book should be read by EVERYONE!!!
This year for Christmas my lovely sweetie gave me a $250 gift card to Book-A-Million. I was so happy...he knows me so well. On my first visit to the bookstore, I stumbled across this lovely title. As I read the blurb on the back I became immediately interested! I'm so glad I picked up this book that I had heard little to nothing about. I feel like I somehow have unearthed a gem. Something that the world had yet to discover.
I don't want to give too much away, because I feel that my not knowing much played a huge part in my enjoyment of the book. I will say that this book follows Finny and Autumn, two teenagers who have spent their lives living next door to each other. Their mothers are best friends, and they were born in the same month. This book follows Finny (whom I immediately fell in love with) and Autumn over their high school years. The years in which the people whom you thought would be your best friends forever, start to veer off in different directions, into different social groups. Despite all of this, Finny and Autumn still have a connection....it is this connection that will reach into your chest and grab a tight hold of your heart.
I can't scream my recommendation from the rooftops loud enough, "YOU MUST READ THIS BOOK ASAP!" You will thank me for it.
5 out of 5 Stars....hands down...no hesitation.
