Jake Gordon is a high school senior who plays football and also plays in the band Sublime Karma. He is attracted to Brie but realizes she is very guarded. Yet soon he is vying for her attention with Ryan, the captain of the cross country team.
Will Jake be able to help break down the walls around Brie and when he learns the truth about her life will he stick by her side or will he panic and leave her?
I really enjoyed this book but it does deal with some super heavy subject matters that not everyone may be comfortable with.
My heart was so open to Brie and I felt so bad with how she was treated right away at school and harassed so much when she never did a single thing to the "popular" girls. As the book went on and I learned even more about Brie I had tears in my eyes learning about the struggles she was going through. It frustrates me that Brie's mom didn't take her kids seriously and I really wish that Leif could have lived closer to Brie.
Jake was an interesting character as he was one of the popular kids yet at the same time he was willing to risk everything for Brie. His popularity didn't matter when it came to her but that also made Brie an obvious target for Sarah and her friends. Jake had his own demons that he struggled with and he did the best he could with the hand he was given.
I loved the talk between Jake and Brie where everything was revealed and both showed so much strength and it resulted in a super strong bond between the two of them. Yet that still didn't mean that more drama didn't happen due to jumping to conclusions!
A great book about dealing with difficult situations and having the courage to overcome them.
I gave this book 4 stars. I really enjoyed reading this book, it was a bit slower in the beginning, but once I hit about 20 percent I was hooked and had to read until I finished. I even gave this one priority over a book I’ve been waiting forever for just because I was so captivated by the story.
The characters are down to earth and relatable. They clicked together so well that you didn’t even have to question their chemistry. The story worked.
I wasn’t a huge fan of the third person perspective, usually I like to be right inside the persons head when I’m reading anything that isn’t fantasy. It helps me a lot with connecting to the plot and the characters. This is probably why I didn’t warm up to the story that quickly. Nonetheless, I got through it and I really enjoyed it.
What I loved was that I wasn’t completely annoyed by the protagonists. I’ms someone who gets annoyed by people very easily, so finding a book where I like all the characters doesn’t happen a ton. They also grew a lot as people in this book, they became better versions of themselves and strive towards improving.
Something else I found relatable about this book was that when the teens would skip school they would get a phone call home. This was also the case for me in school and for some reason I never actually see that happen in books. The teens usually skip school and their parents are none the wiser about it all.
The downside is that I wish we got more from the ending. I feel like there was a lot of things that were a bit unresolved, especially conflict between certain characters. We never got actual closer where some of those conflicts are concerned. From what I can tell there is no plan for the author to write a sequel, but maybe there will be a surprise book. One of my bookish pet peeves is when not all the loose ends are tied up. This could just be because I have OCD.
Overall, if you’re into edgier Teen romances than this is definitely a book you would enjoy. Despite having a boat load of angst, it was still a very cute story.
