However, it featured what we see quite rarely of in YA fiction nowadays which is a realistically and carefully growing relationship between hero and heroine.
The slow pace of the book gave more than enough time for Livy and Gregory to find each other - as people, as friends, and emotionally.
Ulrich put so much time into building a strong foundation and authentic connection between the two of them and she succeeded, by far. Their relationship was neither obvious nor forced, it wasn't anything but natural and you got to experience it step-by-step and see it taking shape before your eyes.
I wasn't exactly sure where to place Livy between the person she was when falling apart due to her parents divorce, the supposed dork at school, or the girl growing close and falling for Gregory - a part of me feel like I didn't get to know her well enough.
As for Gregory, I liked that he wasn't just this perfect gentleman (which he was) but that he had a pained past, that there was something else there.
There were a couple of really sweet supporting characters such as Livy's best friend Gracie, the hip Grandma Jean, and Gregory's older sister Cecelia, whom I couldn't but adore.
Cece was just the kindest, with such a warm persona. I could absolutely not believe that she was nineteen being so incredibly motherly - always taking care of others and never asking for anything in return.
"The secret" is kept subtle throughout the story, not taking action until the latter parts of the book.Read more ›
There were a few typos but none of them distracted me from the story. The beginning of the story was a little slow, but that was the result of the author painting such a detail rich story. When Livy and Gregory get together, it is MAGIC!! I dare you not to read this and cheer along!!!
The supporting characters were great. Cece and Kev were a sweet couple and the struggles in Livy's life between her mother and father going through their own difficulties was VERY realistic.
This is one of those books that after you finish it you'll be THRILLED you read it!! It is the first in a series, book 2 Broken Wing, and book 3 Fair Feathered, are already released. Congratulations Ms. Ulrich on an AWESOME debut novel!
Everything seemed so realistic and I felt like I was part of the character's life. The heartbreaks, family issues, going through high school all seem so real and was very easy to understand what the characters are going through. I didn't feel like I was just reading another book, I felt like I was going through the life experiences with each character. I could feel the emotions the characters were portraying. When a character was going through a trial or a hardship, I felt their pain. When there was a celebration or an accomplishment, I could feel and experienced that satisfaction.
Each and every character has an important role in the book, and Paulina did an amazing job portraying their roles. Through the book you just end up attaching to the character whether it is to absolutely love them or absolutely hate them.Read more ›
