I read this book after finishing “Forget You” and wanting to read more of Echols’ style. It was another emotionally real book that I had trouble putting down.
I can relate to Meg wanting to leave her small town and the life she’s seen before her for her entire life. She wants to do something more than those around her. She wants to be more.
On the other hand, John has chosen to stay in this same town, and be the control and rules Meg can’e wait to break away from. They form a complex relationship that pushes them both to see what they tried to keep hidden. They force each other to look at the entire world, and not just the small sliver they wanted to see.
It was a wonderful book and, yet again, Echols gave me a story I could believe and a romance I could root for.
