Abby was such a fun heroine, and her friendship with Cooper highlighted all the qualities that made her HER. That's what made their relationship feel real and sweet and oh so fluffy. While I floundered a bit trying to feel the enormity of the close-knit, best friends group dynamic when 2 of the 4 friends were gone for all but two chapters, I'm also glad we got so much time with just Abby and Cooper because their friendship shows all the foundation work for a great romance.
Also, more than just showing the intense, already established friendships, Kasie West brings new people into Abby's life. Lacey and Elliot give Abby the swift kick she needs to get out of her rut with Cooper and with Life, capital L. I found it interesting how Kasie West compared and contrasted the importance of new and old relationships - relying and finding solace in what you've always known, and finding new experiences you didn't know you needed. That's really what this book was about. And that journey applied to Abby and Cooper; and in smaller doses Lacey and Elliot and Rachel (I don't know about Justin, he was in one scene at the end, but I hope we get to know him and the group as a whole better in the companion novels!).
I also LOVED Abby's relationship with her mother and grandfather. Especially her grandfather. It's a relationship not commonly seen in YA, so that was fun.
Abby and Cooper are best friends and have been for ages. The catch? Abby has some very strong, unrequited feelings for Cooper, and when she approached him about them and he didn’t react as expected she very quickly made a joke and pretended she didn’t mean a word. So now she’s focused on her art and pretending she doesn’t notice all the other girls that Cooper is hooking up with.
When her employer rejects her art from a local art show stating that her work just doesn’t have enough heart, she is determined to change his mind and she decides she needs to make a list of life experiences that will help her grow as a person.
Enter the list.
Abby has one month to complete the tasks on her list and get herself in the show, but growing concerns about her mother’s anxiety and Cooper being Cooper, may derail everything.
I absolutely love the way that Kasie West can weave some very important issues into a somewhat light-hearted story and present it in a way that isn’t overly depressing. West hits on some big ones here… a parent deployed, a mom dealing with anxiety, unrequited feelings… and I really think she does an amazing job handling each of these issues within the story.
West also has a wonderful knack for creating these incredible friendships and relationships in her stories and I just completely loved what was going on between Abby and Cooper… and I hated that they weren’t a couple!! I can say that and still love the book right? Honestly, for as much as I love Abby & Cooper, seeing Abby branch out from Cooper was incredibly gratifying and I really enjoyed seeing her grow as a character.
I’m not going to lie. Kasie made me cry a bit with this one. I don’t know if I was having an overly emotional day or what, but there is one part towards the end that just broke my heart and I truly didn’t know how West was going to fix it. But fix it she did, and it made my sappy heart happy.
Ultimately, this is going to have a home on my Kasie West shelf among my other favorites and if you’re a fan of sweet, fun, contemporary YA this is definitely a must read for you.
