I preordered this because I love RS Grey, but I was actually disappointed. I felt like we missed out on the actual relationship between Lilah and Chase. They have one very brief make out session and suddenly they're a couple; "dating" without actually going on a date. It honestly read like there were missing chapters, that's how abrupt their relationship status seemed. I like YA, and I know before I start reading that I'm in for a healthy dose of teenage angst and general self loathing, but the happy scenes tend to even things out. This book skipped all the happy stuff, and for me, that made it fall flat.

"My family's secrets had been plucked, pressed, preserved, and put on display.
It wasn't fair that everyone knew my secrets but I didn't know theirs. The scales were tipped in their favor, and since I couldn't erase the secrets on my side, it was time to start weighing down theirs."

It's been about a week since I read Chasing Spring and I'm still thinking of it. To be honest, I'm not sure why I was so taken aback by this book. I mean, the author implored her readers that this was DIFFERENT from anything else she had put out before.

And that was correct.

This is a complete departure from normal RomCom R.S. Grey and I freaking LOVED it.

I'm still processing this angst-filled novel. It was intense, full of raw, rough, and tumultuous feels. It had a darker edge to it, with the subject matter being heart breaking in every sense. The characters felt layered and heavy, their pain transparent in each word I read. And the writing felt fierce and alive, beautiful and poignant.

Lilah—our main character—is having to return home after being away for two years. You can literally feel her misery as she returns to town, this place that holds so much pain for her. I really connected to her character. I wish I could give you a detailed report of every way we're alike (hahahaha), but that would spoil the book. Just know that this girl... she's carrying around some heavy feelings of worthlessness. She's lost, searching for her identity. She feels abandoned, unloved by the one person who should have loved her unconditionally. She's broken. She doesn't know how to process her emotions. But behind that sense of not knowing who she is, or what she's worth, is this fighting spirit that I loved so much.

I enjoyed this quick read. The foundation of the story, the outline and the idea was good and had alot of potential. But there was something missing. It felt a bit chopped in the pacing and like there were parts that were jumped. I can't put my finger on it, but I couldn't really connect.

It's official. The first book of the year to make me weep uncontrollable tears? Chasing Spring by R.S. Grey. This is the kind of book that just goes straight for your heart and pierces it so deeply. My eyes were red and welling with a river of tears, chapter after chapter after chapter, with a constant lump in my throat. Rachel simply took my breath away with her stunning words! Chasing Spring was a beautifully written, heartrending tale about loss and the equally devastating grief that follows--the anger, the pain, the denial--but also, it's about hope, and healing, and acceptance.

I had thought you couldn't be mad at a ghost. I had thought once someone died, it'd be hard to look back in anger.

I'd been so wrong.

Lilah Calloway is a troubled teen making a reluctant return to her hometown, subjected to gossiping whispers and judgemental gazes. It's also clear from the very beginning, though, that Lilah left town in the first place to escape something dark and tragic. The effects of that event still linger, like an infected wound that refuses to heal. As Lilah herself says, "...the bandages were rotten and so easy to tear." The author brings us into Lilah's mind and shows us that hurting young girl on the inside, lost in her past and her suffering. The reader is taken on that haunting ride, right along with her.

I'd been obsessed with uncovering the lies of Blackwater, Texas because I had a theory I desperately needed to prove: no one was as happy, as perfect, or as good as they were pretending to be.

...We all tell lies. We all live in delusions.
--

Then there's Chase Matthews, Lilah's childhood best friend and the town's golden boy. He's handsome, athletic, with a bright future ahead of him.

This book is R.S. Grey's newest release and it was a book completely different from the ones I've read by her in the past. R.S. Grey usually writes stories leaning more toward a comedic side, but with Chasing Spring, the story was more serious. Completely different from anything I've read by her but still a book I really enjoyed!

Lilah thought she was done with her small town when she left it. She didn't want to go back. And she certainly didn't want to see Chase Matthews ever again. Too bad for her, both happen. But she's determined to make the most of the situation until she can leave for college. She finds herself in a bad crowd, you know, the crowd that does drugs and drinks way too much. She proves to everyone the girl that left and came back is someone else.

Lilah and Chase have been in each other's lives since they were young. Their mothers were best friends, and so were they. A long time ago. But sometimes fate has a way of bringing two people who are meant for one and other together. But Chase and Lilah have to learn to move on from the past, both theirs and their parents, and accept themselves for who they are before they can really be together.

Sometimes one has to love themselves before they can love another person.
