This is a story of a girl, Mackenzie (AKA Mack) and her struggle with an eating disorder and fractured relationship with her mother. It's also the story of Tyler and his instant attraction and need to get to know her and the fact that he recognizes in her what he saw happen to his own sister. As quickly as they come together they are torn apart by uncontrollable circumstances.
Through a series of amazingly sweet letters they keep in touch and discover they might be worth holding onto.
When life brings them back together its whirlwind of perfection and things look great for the two of them.
Then suddenly tragedy strikes and Mack shuts down pushing away everyone that cares about her especially Tyler.
I never saw that tragedy coming and certainly didn't expect it to be so gruesome. It was heartbreaking to read as Mack tried to deal, or not deal, with it.
I love how Tyler always seemed to come to her rescue and somehow always knew the right way to push or not to push.
I didn't have a lot of love for Mack's mom for "letting" it go on for so long but also realize it must've been pure hell for her too.
This was not a light-hearted book but at the same time I don't feel like it was overly angsty. It does end with an HEA so that's a bonus.
*I received an ARC from the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review.
This has got to be the easiest review I ever wrote. Why, you ask? Because not only I LOVED the book but I can relate to it. While writing the review might be easy, reading the book was not; at least not some parts. It hit too close to home, making me relieve some very painful memories that were long forgotten.
This story is real and raw and talks about things that most of us don't feel comfortable talking about. Things that I've experienced and many young girls out there are experiencing right this moment. Mackenzie Deeks is struggling to get over her parents' divorce the best way she can and in the process she develops an eating disorder. Moving to a new town and starting at a new school, does not help either. She hides from the world the best she can.
Tyler Redding feels a pull towards Mackenzie and, from experience, he knows that she needs help. When he starts showing his interest, Mackenzie is having a hard time believing that someone like him would even know her name. Tyler is every young girl's dream: handsome, hardworking, romantic, caring, and patient. Together they embark on a journey of ups and downs but love has a way to conquer all.
I finished the story in less than a day and I've cried some ugly tears. BUT this has to be one of THE BEST books I've read this year, and I've read some really good ones. It is original, very well written, perfect pace, and very realistic. I hope every woman (young and not so young) has the chance to read this story.
"There's something very peaceful about being in love. It can make you light as a feather; so blissfully unaware of anything else of importance. It can make you feel anger, rage, jealousy, and lust all in one sentence."
This book takes on the subject of eating disorders and how it affects the person and the people around them. Of course there is a love story interwoven in there too. I would have liked to have known what, if anything, set Tyler's sister off on her path of anorexia, since we knew Mack' s story about her start and how Levi seemed to start his comfort eating. I loved Tyler and how strong he was. He seemed so mature for his age, in more was than one! "Get back in the warm tub. That will help with the pain." He knows this at 19! He must have done lots of reading or something while away for a year and half! LOL
