Book Description

For as long as she can remember, Wren Gray's goal has been to please her parents. But as high school graduation nears, so does an uncomfortable realization: Pleasing her parents once overlapped with pleasing herself, but now . . . not so much. Wren needs to honor her own desires, but how can she if she doesn't even know what they are? Charlie Parker, on the other hand, is painfully aware of his heart's desire. A gentle boy with a troubled past, Charlie has loved Wren since the day he first saw her. But a girl like Wren would never fall for a guy like Charlie--at least not the sort of guy Charlie believes himself to be. And yet certain things are written in the stars. And in the summer after high school, Wren and Charlie's souls will collide. But souls are complicated, as are the bodies that house them . . . Sexy, romantic, and oh-so-true to life, this is an unforgettable look at first love from one of young adult fiction's greatest writers.


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.

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointing. November 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I debated a very long time today rather or not I wanted to post another review today, especially for this book. But I have read this book during the time I couldn't get on the computer and decided it was finally time to voice my feelings.

The Infinite Moment of Us is about two characters Wren and Charlie who have had crushes on each other for a while, but it wasn't after high school graduation did the two finally started to get together. Of course Wren has other plans then going to college, and decides she want's to travel to Guatemala instead to help.

I really wanted to love this book. The writing was smooth and flowed easily, but because it felt like the entire book was character-driven and the character's just didn't work for me, it was a complete miss.

I couldn't stand Wren, I had the hardest time liking her much less connecting with her. She was immature for her age which led to moment in the book that really left me wanting to scream. I did not like the way she treated Charlie or the way she responded to him. The lack of communication between the two was hair gripping enough without adding the horrible way they communicated on top of that, when they actually did.

Charlie too. Thought I felt for him, I did, with everything he went through with his mother. His story really was sad. He wasn't any better then Wren. He too did not seem his age, once again two character's acting really immature. His a foster kid who has seen his share of rejection and get's mixed up with a crazy ex-girlfriend that keeps trying to spoil his relationship with Wren. The worse part is the fact that he just keeps finding his way back to her and kept right on lying to Wren. Both of these character's decisions in this book had my head spinning.

4.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful story about first love August 27, 2013
Format:Hardcover
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars well written and addictive love story. September 7, 2013
Format:Hardcover
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.
