Mady is completely devastated losing her brother Matt. He was her best friend with whom she shared a lot of the same interests with and spent a lot of time with. She struggles everyday just trying to get through and she can't focus on the classes she is taking. She falls behind and her advisor assigns her a tutor to help her catch up and hopefully this will help her not to fail her classes.
Max is her assigned tutor and turns out to be not only a great tutor but also is a great listener. He seems to be who she needs during this trying time. They become best friends and he tries to help her through the grieving process. He also tries to get her out and about so she starts to live again.
I recommend you read this very heartbreaking but also heartwarming story. Find out what happens to her family due to the tragic death of her brother. Is there something more going on between Mady and Max or do they remain just friends? Must read! Must have tissues handy!!
Maddy is having a hard time dealing with the loss of her brother. Her family has broken down and life at home is bad. She has missed weeks of school and is in danger of failing.
During a particularly bad night at home, Maddy decides to take a walk to her favorite place, a bridge, and decompress. A strange man sees her and decides to keep her company until she feels ready to leave.
That man, Max, later becomes her tutor in charge or helping her catch up and pass her classes.
Max can’t comprehend her loss, but he feels a need to be there for her. He is also falling in love with her.
As her family life continues to break down, Maddy finds herself spending more and more time with Max.
I could not imagine living in a household like Maddy’s. This book does an amazing job at showing how loss especially sudden loss can change people. It also touches on the subject of depression and suicide.
It’s not completely depressing though as it also shows what a functional, close family can be like. Max’s family is both large and close. It is the complete opposite of Maddy’s and she feels overwhelmed and jealous at first meeting them.
This was a great read! The characters were believable and story had a great flow to it.
There wasn’t really anything in the book that I could complain about. The only criticism I have is that I spotted a couple grammatical errors, but nothing big. Overall, this book was well written by someone who knew what they were doing.
I truly enjoyed this book and would love to read this author’s other work. I gave this book five stars because the author was able to make her audience feel the powerful emotions that their characters felt. It’s hard to make me emotional, but this book hit home and accomplished the nearly impossible. My complements to the author, Erin Cristofoli, you did an incredible job. I suggest for all of my readers to check out this talented author’s incredible work, you will not be disappointed.
