It shouldn’t really matter if you are accepted by the popular kids, but they will be the first ones who will make fun of you if you are different. It helps if you have that one friend who understands you like no one else does.
Logan had been in love with Anna from afar for a year, and sometimes he felt as if he would never meet her. To him, she was a beautiful goddess who didn’t even realize the extent of her exquisiteness. She seemed carefree and happy as she moved effortlessly through the hallways. It wasn’t until he met her that he realized that they had more in common than he could have ever imagined.
Fate played a hand in their meeting when their psychology teacher assigned them to work together on a group project. The other kids in the group were not important, and they probably wouldn’t contribute to the project, which gave Logan even more time to spend with Anna. He thought he would have a heart attack when he saw her reaching across the desk to write her phone number in his notebook. This was the best day of his life. A friendship with Anna no longer felt unattainable, and he was looking forward to spending as much time with her as possible, even if it was only at school.
How will the friendship between Logan and Anna develop?
Will they feel comfortable enough with each other to share even their darkest secrets and truly personal feelings?
What can I say about “Away From Here?” It is personal, emotional, refreshing, and made me reflect upon the journey we all take through life. Logan and Anna became friends when they needed each other the most and for awhile, all of their problems seemed to fade just a little bit. Christopher Harlan is truly a gifted and passionate writer and I know this book will be in my heart forever.
Logan, a self-described nerd was funny, sweet, intelligent and endearing. I loved him. His struggles with his mom and her mental illness got him down at times, but he just kept on living. He was definitely an old soul.
Annalise was a troubled young woman. A very strained home life led her to self-abuse and depression that kept her down. She became so beaten down. My heart broke for her.
Logan and Anna found common ground because of their families. Logan wore his heart on his sleeve. He gave his all when it came to Anna, but she just struggled with those same things.
This is their story of first love. It’s special, and wonderful but also trying and sad. There are all different loves in your life; some fleeting, some permanent, but all leave their mark.
I have put a lot of thought in to this. I mean, a great book deserves a great review, right? I only hope I can do this book justice, as it far transcends any other I have read to date. I know what you're thinking. You're thinking, "Really? Transcends any other?". Well, I'm here to tell you, without pause, that yes, it is THAT good.
The story is narrated by the adult version of our main character Logan Santiago. While it tells of Logan's experiences in his last year of high school, it is told with the wisdom of the life he's lived since then. He tells us the story of Annalise, the girl of his dreams- his Peruvian Goddess. He tells us of their journey together through young love, both dealing with a mentally ill parent - of having to grow up too fast, and of fighting their own demons. The narration is heartfelt, humorous, and heartbreaking all at the same time. It's a love story. It's a coming of age story. It's a story of choices, both ones made independently and ones forced upon them. It's a story of finding out who you are and embracing it, warts and all. It's a story of survival.
Logan tells us how Annalise helped form the man he became. I have a feeling he had the same effect on her.
Reading this book moved me in a way no other book has done before. I laughed out loud, I teared up, I smiled, and I suffered heartbreak right along with Logan and Annalise. I could see a little of myself in both of them, and I know you will too. Away From Here will stay with me forever, no doubt. This book is not just a Young Adult novel. It's for everyone.
In closing, Potato.
