Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 10 Up-Wren Gray has spent her first 18 years pleasing her parents, earning perfect grades and early acceptance into the school and program her dad was hoping for, and, of course, keeping clear of boyfriends. Charlie Parker has spent his first 18 years navigating through foster homes and maintaing his position under the radar. He has loved Wren since the first time he saw her. When chance brings them together for their first conversation, it's electric, and they both know that neither one of them will ever be the same. Wren just might have the courage to look for what she wants out of life-and Charlie just might finally know what true love is. This charming romance has multidimensional characters, straightforward sexuality, and a pace that lets readers fall in love with the main characters. Myracle expertly captures the intense connection of first love, from the need to spend every moment together to trying to figure out how to communicate with one another. The abrupt ending feels out of sync with the rest of the book, but readers should be pleased with it nonetheless. Myracle does not remove the physical aspects of two teens in love, bringing to mind Judy Blume's Forever. A romantic read that doesn't shy away from steaminess.-Emily Moore, Camden County Library System, NJα(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

First love is one of my favorite things to read about, and The Infinite Moment of Us was a beautiful story about first love. I love reading about two young adults falling in love, because it brings back those same feelings for me. Wasn't falling in love for the first (or second) time such a magical thing? Lauren Myracle captures that all-consuming feeling perfectly in The Infinite Moment of Us.

The book is a first-person narrative with each chapter alternating between Wren and Charlie's perspective. I like that writing style for contemporary romance, because I love getting in both main characters' heads. I enjoy seeing what each character really thinks about the same events.

There was a big contrast between Charlie and Wren, both in their life experiences and their histories. I liked that they acknowledged the differences between them, and worked through them to get closer to each other. The love scenes were definitely "new adult", but tastefully done.

The one thing I didn't' like about The Infinite Moment of Us was the ending. I wished it could have been more conclusive. Charlie and Wren spent a lot of time geting together, and then some of it at odds with each other, and I would have liked more of their story after the main conflict was resolved.

I really liked The Infinite Moment of Us. I liked the writing, the story, and the emotions. I could tell that Myracle is a seasoned author: the book has a confident, assured feel to it. I would definitely recommend this book and look forward to reading more from Lauren Myracle.

I am normally a big fan of YA lit. Going into The Infinite Moment Of Us, I had decent expectations as it seemed like a sweet story. But honestly, I hated this book. The characters are very unlikable and immature, and the whole plot moved very slowly with more character development than plot (which I also typically enjoy but for some reason I could not stand it in this instance).

For starters, both of the main characters create their own problems 99.9% of the time. Wren insists that Charlie choose her over his family (not to mention his brother who is paralyzed...), and Charlie insists on destroying this new relationship he "cares so much about" by lying to Wren every chance he can to help his old girlfriend when she needs him.

Next, this book is such a cliche. I knew what was going to happen by page ten! And the discussions between Wren and charlie sound like the author was trying to find their own John Green type of philosophical yet witty and light hearted writing style and it just fell so flat. I realize young love develops very quickly but all the talk about their "souls being connected" was just too cheesy to even handle.

Finally, I'm not an idiot...I realize young adults have sex. However I could not believe how explicit this novel was! It left nothing to the imagination and the sex scenes could have easily been straight out of 50 shades of grey. I enjoy novels that talk about teen sex honestly and tastefully (FIOS did it right), but this was too far. Not only was it extremely graphic, but it glorified unprotected sex and sending naked pictures (not to mention uprooting your entire life for someone you just started dating two months prior).

I know not every novel has or should have strong, independent lead characters. However I do believe that YA novels should, in some way, instill a positive message. Happy ending or not, this novel provided a horrible example for young adults.

The dual narrative worked out well, although it took me quite a bit to get used to the third person point of view. I wish that I could've been 1st person, so I felt even more connected and in their heads. I still got a good impression of who Wren and Charlie were and what they were thinking and feelings as well as their motivations, and eventually it became flowing and flawless so that I didn't notice it wasn't in 1st.
At its roots, The Infinite Moment of Us is a story about acceptance, and it has an awesome romance, and friendships featured as well. I like Wren and Tessa together, they are different enough but share enough of the similarities that their friendship feels authentic.
The story is multi-layered because Wren is finally figuring out what she wants to do with her life and who she is outside of her parent's expectations and high pressure for her to follow the plan they think is best for her. It is a dysfunctional relationship, and I went through the story hoping they would open their eyes to the strong and brave young woman that Wren turned out to be.
Charlie is so well written and being in his head was a joy. Although he has a really rough past, he is now in a supportive and loving foster home with a foster brother that feels closer than blood could be. I love his protectiveness and gentle but teasing nature with his brother Dev, and it was a high spot of the story for me.
Speaking of high spots, the chemistry between Charlie and Wren is awesome, and it was great watching their souls collide and getting closer to each other while discovering with the other's help just who they are inside and how they should be valued and viewed.
