That’s how reading this book felt for me. It was an emotional dream that stirred hidden feelings I’d locked away. The characters are genuine and well developed, so I instantly connected with them as if they were old friends.
It starts out so simple—with a dream, of course. A recurring dream that Rafael Torres has been having for the past six months. As his dream transforms into waking reality, we learn the story of him and his best friend, Henry Wyatt, who he’s been in love with for fifteen years.
They’re about to embark on an adventure of a lifetime, taking a road trip across the country to experience the Golden Gate Bridge from a hot air balloon. Throughout their journey, we learn how they met, and the tragic circumstances in their lives that have bonded them together. The story alternates seamlessly between flashbacks and present day as they reminisce.
But halfway through the journey, things start to take a heart-wrenching turn as the secrets pour out. Suddenly the reader is taken on a road they never expected to go down, and I loved every second of it.
The story of Rafael and Henry packs such an emotional wallop, but it’s paced in a way that’s manageable. There’s a fair mix of humor and sweetness to balance it out.
Just like with Mr. Webb’s first novel, “How We Love,” I’m once again reminded by “We All Die Trying To Get It Right” how precious and fragile life is, and how important it is to tell people you love them.
My favorite quote from the story: “I need to remember to lead with love in everything I do…”
Lead with love. Always.
