I had to buy it!
Sometimes you don't always need sex to create a love story. In this case, you just need the perfect story and the words to combine it all and that there will create the emotions that make up what truly was a book that will forever touch my heart.
"When you love somebody fiercely, you keep a part of them with you always, no matter where their journey takes them.”
To be young again and to remember what it was like.
There are many stories out there now that are about a boy and a girl that grew up together but many of them usually skip from being young to adults. This book takes you to only one time in their lives, a time that changed everything. There was no need to skip to the future because there were so many different things going on in just this one year. This ONE year - the author did (speechless) ....my jaw is still on the ground and the tears of sadness and joy are still lying on my bed.
"He made me feel beautiful in a way I’d never managed before. The way his eyes followed me wherever I moved, somehow intense but relaxed all at the same time, made me feel as though I was worth watching."
What can I say - and the irony is that I haven't read a Y/A book in quite sometime but we mustn't overlook this bc of it's genre (meaning how many might and are similar to me in this case) - remember back when a certain trilogy became huge because of an abused girl in high school - sex was not the catalyst - the story was. And a brilliant author, who knows how to do it right, will take you on a journey that's filled with so much creativity that it allows you to overlook that element and see the beauty of what love is really about in more ways than one and it is beautiful. So beautiful.
That is "The Pebble Jar" - OUTSTANDING!

random read! awesome read!
Robinson wrote the perfect characters. I adored Abbi. My heart broke for her over and over, and even when Elliot was the one doing the breaking, I couldn't help but love him, too. The character who really surprised me, though, was Abbi's father. I did not anticipate the man he became or the feelings he eventually drew from me. The scenes with him were somehow both subtle and gut-wrenching.
And speaking of subtle, the only other writer I can think of who draws feels this strong from simple, ordinary actions is Taylor Jenkins Reid, and I don’t make that comparison lightly. Robinson mastered this. When you can make me sob simply by having a drunk girl fail to open a door... WOW. And I shouldn't say "simply." There is nothing simple about Robinson's writing. It's brilliant.
This book is not getting the attention it deserves.
If you haven’t read H.A. Robinson before, this is the book to start with.
This coming of age story is for young and old, alike, and is full of characters you take on as your truest friends. You feel everything Abi is going through because of the way H.A. Robinson weaves her words into your heart. I won't lie, sometimes it's rather painful and heartbreaking.
The issues that are addressed in this book are ones that every single one of us encounters throughout our journey in life, but the storytelling makes Abi’s journey her very own. The writing is handled with such understanding of those raw emotions that, if you ask me, makes connecting with Abi and Nonna impossible to avoid, and leaves you mourning the loss as the story comes to an end.
The minute I finished reading The Pebble Jar, I handed it over to my young daughter and insisted she read it, because that is honestly how good it is. And that is the biggest compliment I could give.
