A full range of emotions from anger and exasperation to happiness and heartbreak.
The book is about loss, letting go, learning to LIVE again and NOT merely exist. It's profound to the extreme and just so...wrenching!!
So so much going on, so many secrets...so much pretending. You will really fall in love with both Trista and Jude. Both are amazing characters.
Fantastically written book, can't wait for more!
Trista was poor and lived in a trailer park but that's not what identified her. It was being referred to as Colin's girlfriend or Ellie's friend. Trista wanted to earn her own identity with no social status attached to it. Ellie and Colin had that pull where people wanted their company. Trista felt lucky to have captured their attention.
Trista's mother preached to her how they are unlovable people destined for heartache.
Trista and Ellie were unlikely friends yet it worked. When Ellie died at a party Trista felt responsible. Trista lost herself to grief, for three years struggling through life. Her relationship with Colin remained idle and her education became non existent.
Trista set out into tomorrow searching for the unexpected happiness that made life worthy.
The dialogue was mature and original. I was hooked by the conversations taking place. I was transported into the surroundings Whitney has illustrated with her word choices. It was written well.
The cover did not scream read me but once I got beyond the cover and read the material inside I was be glad I did, The title and cover were significant to the story and characters but it was not appreciated until I read it. My only suggestion for other readers is too choose this story not based on the cover but the story inside. I almost passed this up even after having read all of Whitney's books. It took a blogger writing a review to interest me.
The story transitioned smoothly from one topic into the next further explaining situations when necessary.
This story had a profound affect on me. It dug deep into my soul layer by layer revealing one secret at a time. Jude's character was complex and articulate. He was comfortable with himself. He was attentive.
Whitney spun a tale so easily worming these characters into your heart so when they did something deceitfully profound you easily dismissed the act because you had become biased to their story.
The story focused on sadness, loneliness, fears, and isolation. The characters were woven together with purpose.
I could wrap myself up in Jude like a warm blanket. Jude's character possessed several qualities that were admiral in a man.Whitney made it easy to get attached to Jude. I too wanted to embrace him in a hug.
Whitney wrote cleverly offering the longing for more. The characters gave you hope and as a reader searching for the unexpected. Whitney kept my interest by dangling little teasers of information while holding out for the big reveal.
I appreciated Whitney's eyes as she illustrated the sights of Yellowstone. The way she captured the scenery made me long to go back for a revisit.
To start, I'm gonna say that the heroine is relatable and the hero is yummy. Yes, I said yummy. And the boyfriend, well you can read the book to find out why he's not the hero.
Trista is born into a broken family, thus leaving her feeling unloved from the moment she's able to comprehend what a real family should be like. Her mother is an awful person. What you see in the first chapter is just a small snippet of the bitch she is. Anyway, that leaves Trista feeling likes she's not good enough. That no one really loves her. (Just an FYI here, this might be fiction, but people really do feel that way, ie: relatable). She finds someone she can call a best friend (Ellie) and she even finds an attractive boyfriend (Colin) when she's in high school. Unfortunately, she still feels like she's left in the shadows. LIke she's not really Trista, but she's this person's friend and this guy's girlfriend, who tags along. Again, that happens in real life.
So Trista suffers a tragedy and it takes most of the book for her to overcome it. And the only help she receives is from Jude, who is not her boyfriend.
This book is about learning to love yourself, because really, that's what matters most in life. You can't truly love someone else if you don't love yourself. You're constantly second guessing everything that happens to you or everything that is said to you. I've been in Trista's shoes (the dick of a boyfriend who doesn't show you how special you are) and it's incredibly tough to see the beauty in ourselves if no one is willing to reflect it back to us.
It's about learning to accept ourselves, flaws and all. It's about learning to find something we love and sticking with it.
And it's about camping in the mountains with #tentguy (remember when I said they actually do stuff? Yeah, camping and hiking and other outdoor stuff). Jude is seriously added to the list of book boyfriends. So buy this book and devour it like I did.
Note that Into The Tomorrows does end with a cliffhanger, BUT Back to Yesterday will be releasing this year.
Trista – you can’t help but to feel for her, she has been dealt I bad hand and it seems to keep getting worse for her. You want to scoop her up and help her see that she is so much more. I liked that she was showing growth by learning about herself and doing new things, but I feel she still has so far to go, especially when IT all comes out.
Colin – Ugh…..talk about making me frustrated, I was so ready to throw my kindle at times. The lack of attention, lack of communication and the secrets were killing me. I was so glad when they finally got things out into the open, even though it hurt – it was necessary and it made me dislike him even more.
Ahhh, the Tent Guy, Jude – LOVED him from the very beginning. He brought the joy to this story, his vest for life, his need to help others, if overall attitude. I knew he was holding something big back too, but I never would have guessed what.
I couldn’t help but to FEEL this story, so much so, that I couldn’t pick up a new book right away. I had to take time to let this one settle. I am left with questions and the need to know more, so please Whitney don’t make me wait too long ;)
