This book is so vulnerable and real. It's so relatable that I can't help, but see myself in it and I think that's what makes the world of difference. The characters are real, they're relatable, their pain and feelings are relatable. You see your family and yourself in these situations. So much so, that that's what had me sobbing. The relationships between family and friends are closely knit and so wonderful. I absolutely fell in love with Bee's entire family!
But, let's talk about Bee for a second. Bee is a beauty. She shows doubt, her pain, her happiness, her guilt, and everything in between so wonderfully. She has fantastic inner dialogue that had me cracking up. Her thought process is just a prize. She's sarcastic to the point of being funny and her banter with Levi is just so cute.
Speaking of Levi, how incredibly adorable is he?! I want Levi. I mean it, I need Levi right this second. I want him to take me to Peterson's so we can enjoy some delicious donuts listening to music at midnight looking at the stars. Okay, maybe I don't because he belongs with Bee, but a girl can dream! Levi is selfless, kind, total dreamboat and all around one of the best guys I've read about that is just good. Good inside and out. <3
Now while I didn't really think this book wasn't too big on the conflict I can kind of appreciate that. It was more character driven. It was about Bee's journey with love and grieving. What Bee goes through I can only imagine the pain and heartbreak. I was sobbing from almost the very beginning because it hurt. But, the way Bee handles the situation made sense and I couldn't fault her at all. The way her family stick together and they have such a strong foundation of love is inspiring.
Plus, the ending?! I couldn't stop giggling because I was so gosh dang giddy! SO MANY FEELS!
I really don't know how Sierra Abrams did it but she had me sobbing and smiling at the same exact time. She broke my heart but then gave me a comforting hug. I am in love with Levi and Bee and this book.
I can't recommend this book enough. It's everything I love in a contemporary and I have a feeling it will be for you too. Recommend 100x!
Thank you to the publisher/author for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review. All opinions are my own.
I will add that because I know Sierra personally, and I am connected to this book so thoroughly, I am totally biased. I will admit.
But, I really hope this review would spur anyone to read this book. It has made a permanent impact on me, and I will share that with anyone who will listen.
MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD: So if you want my opinions, read on.
I fell in love with Levi as Bee did, and equally with every one of those characters. I love Bee's real and quirky-but-relatable persona, Levi's everlasting compassion, Astrid and Millie's undeniable little-sister endearment, Tom's annoying but lovable big-brotherness, Elle's spunk and brightness (and the adorable secret omg). The wedding. The beach party. The friendships. The lightness, but also the depth of undertone. The Color Project. The struggles that everyone faced became more to me than just words on a page.
I connected so much with Levi's frustration and anger and hurt towards his dad. I actually understood and even sypmathized with Bee when she pushed everyone, even the best people in the world, away from her when she was distraught, Because I've done that too. I cried SO HARD about Papa's (I'm not even going to call him Mr. Wescott or Matt, he became too real for formalities.) cancer. It was all so real to me, and felt like I was reliving my experiences, but through someone else's eyes. I felt like it was actually my loved one dying. I understood everyone's anguish over his death. It was so unfair, it was so moving, and I grieved with them.
I loved Gretchen and her unconditional support. I let her comfort me as she comforted Bee. I cried with Mama and Millie and Astrid and Tom and Bee, because they made it real. It brought up some brutal memories, but as the characters healed and moved on, I was able to, too.
And when Bee finally came to her senses, healed just enough, forgave herself and let Levi back in, I swear my heart was going to burst. All of the emotions of the last act paired with a beautiful resolution just completed it all for me.
