Review:
Wow... Books like this one are why I read. Books like this don't come around too often. To say I loved it would be an understatement. I ADORED it. From page one until the very last page it kept me captivated, an emotional mess in the best possible way. I couldn't put it down and read it straight through--it was worth a sleepless night.

I have been becoming bored of Coming of Age (NA) books lately and I find myself eyerolling more than I care to admit. My Skylar was a breath of fresh air when the genre IMO was becoming stagnant. I need to put that out there because if you are feeling the same you may not want to dig into this one and that would be a huge mistake.

This was an emotional one. I went through so many tissues, and have red, puffy swollen eyes--but it was worth it. So worth it. I laughed, and I cried, and I laughed some more. GAH!!!! Just a sec--totally fangirling over Penelope right now... o.O

Okay so what was it about?

As the blurb states it's the friends-to-lovers story of Mitch and Skylar. If you read Jake Undone (which I also LOVED) we met Skylar as Nina's friend. I didn't actually remember her until the part came up when she met Nina. You see this novel is a complete standalone, like the other two, so you can read them in any order without fear of spoilers.

Gosh, I'm sorry to disagree with all these reviews, but I really did not enjoy this book. In order to explain why, I have to provide some spoilers, so don't continue if you want to read the book.
First, I REALLY do not want to read about the sex lives of teenagers. This story begins with the couple meeting when they are children and then finding each other again in high school, and we have the whole high school romance thing, which is a little twisted because Mitch has to get over his fear that the relationship will go bad if they go beyond being friends and then when he finally does, Skylar gets cancer.
Two things here, I'm a grown woman, I am not interested in teenage love and sex. This goes on for 15 chapters! Second, there is nothing so depressing as cancer and really puts a damper on love and sex. Mitch's sudden turnaround is never explained. What happened to change his mind so drastically? And then the same thing for Skylar. Why does she drop him just because he going to college in Boston? I mean, seriously? She's going to graduate from high school a year later from him. Boston has more colleges than any other city in the country. Why wasn't there just ONE time when she considered going to college in Boston? Why did she keep saying that they would be separated for four long years? Boston and New York...really not far apart either.
When Skylar dumps him after all Mitch has done for her when she was sick, I was pretty much done. I kept reading, I kept hating Skylar. I kept wanting to get to the grown-up part, but even with Part Two when they were adults, I still felt like these people acted immature and weak. In the end, Skylar and Mitch get back together. That's after Skylar totally screws Kevin over. Yay, happy ending! Seriously? I finished the book. Can't say it was a pleasant experience though.

Trying to capture in words the essence of this story is as futile as trying to find the magic formula for love. Simply put, this book holds a magical tale that will catch you by surprise, take your breath away, and make you fall in love over and over again.

Skylar and Mitch first met as kids. Mitch's parents were going through a rough patch, and in an effort to shield their son from the worst of it, sent him to his grandmother's house for the summer. But despite their efforts, he knew things were bad, and began tuning out the rest of the world to cope. That is, until he met Skylar. Having experienced a similar disruption in her young life, Skylar was understanding. But more importantly, she was able to bring Mitch out of his shell with her sense of humor and enthusiasm for life. By the end of summer, they were best friends.

Throughout the years, Skylar and Mitch's paths continued to cross. And although the story begins at a pivotal point in adulthood, we discover the full scope of their lives and interactions, as told by both Skylar and Mitch, including their perspectives on the obstacles in their way. Ultimately, these characters never quite let go, and through the storytelling, we learn why. It will pull at your heartstrings, and will make you laugh and cry, because love is messy, complicated, unpredictable... but it is also true bliss. And it will come along when you least expect it.

Along with our main characters, we reconnect with old friends from previous books, and meet up with new characters--some are equally charming, while others are much less so. But all are fully developed, perfectly entwined with the plot, and add meaningful elements to the story.
