First things first: I received this book through yaboundbooktours.
The book is already out and I highly recommend it.
Eight weeks after sixteen-year-old Andie Hamilton gives her virginity to her best friend, “the stick” says she’s pregnant.
Her friends treat her like she’s carrying the plague, her classmates torture and ridicule her, and the boy she thought loved her doesn’t even care. Afraid to experience the next seven months alone, she turns to her ex-boyfriend, Neil Donaghue, a dark-haired, blue-eyed player. With him, she finds comfort and the support she desperately needs to make the hardest decision of her life: whether or not to keep the baby.
Then a tragic accident leads Andie to discover Neil’s keeping a secret that could dramatically alter their lives, and she's forced to make a choice. But after hearing her son’s heartbeat for the first time, she doesn’t know how she’ll ever be able to let go.
I finished the book today and I feel every emotion there is. I think that's gonna last a really long time. That book ripped out my heart and turned it into a million little pieces. I loved it. And everyone should read it!!!
I was into the story right from the start and throughout the book that never changed. I was sad, happy, frustrated, heartbroken and overwhelmed with emotions but I never stopped loving what I was reading.
It's one of those books where everything worked really well together. The story. The characters. The relationships. And the writing. It was just so beautiful.
I loved the characters. Andie. Neil. Jill. Andie's mother. Jill's father. I really loved how when Andie felt like there wasn't anyone left in her life, she build this amazing family around her that helped her through so much. Andie, for me, is one of the strongest characters I have read. She's not part of a revolution, doesn't have to fight in a war. But for her age she has been through so much already and she still came out on top. She had to make a lot of sacrifices. She lost friends and family. But she gained new friends, build a family and stayed really strong through all of this. I have lots of feels about her. The same goes for Neil, I love that he had his own story. He had so many problems of his own but he was such a rock for Andie through everything that happened. And Jill. Jill has to be one of my favorite 'side' characters ever. I need more of her. I want to have a whole book just about her, that's how much I loved her. She's incredible and such an amazing friend. Once again I have too many feels about her.
The relationships. I loved Andie and Neil. The developement of their relationship was so amazingly well done. Just reading their moments I felt the love these two had for each other. How much they helped each other and how much they grew individually and as a couple. It was just so beautiful to read. I loved the friendship between Andie and Jill...and Neil. All three of them are just so different but they worked so well together as a group. I just loved everything about this. Andie and her mother. Andie and Jill's father. Super important relationships in this book. Can I just say how the titel of the book works for so many relationships in the book?? And I love it!!!
And then the end. Just when I thought I had all my feelings under control, the epiloge happend and I cried like a baby. The epiloge was so important and I'm glad the letter was included.
This is one of the books where I just wanna shout out every couple of minutes how much I love everything about it. (but apparently that's not considered 'normal' so I'm just gonna scream it inside my head. Like that sounds anymore normal)
