Meeting when they are young, Sunny and Elias form this complex sort of relationship with each other. Sunny is the sun and Elias the moon, destine to share the same sky but never be together. Sunny is from a good home and really beats to her own drum. She doesn't do things because others think she should, doesn't dress the way others do and is just herself. She is the "good-girl" from the right side of the tracks.
Elias on the other hand is the kid no one wants. He comes from trouble and to everyone he will grow up to be nothing but more trouble. While he doesn't always do things that are squeaky clean he really has a heart of gold and tries beyond anyone's expectations to be more.
This story spans a long time, through growing up, heartbreak, a whole series of firsts, terrible teenagers and diversity. I do have to say YA/NA is not really my thing and I tend to steer clear of them. While this one boarders on that genre I really enjoy this author's writing so I kept with it. Elias is an older soul for being a teenager and his struggles are of the adult variety. Sunny did often behave her age which was a me problem not a story problem. I was drawn into this story and became invested in wanted to know how it was all going to turn out. Our characters, main and side, where all well-rounded and brought dimension to the story. Certainly an enjoyable read and there is the ability to see more of this place in the future should the author decide. I am hoping that some of these characters are revisited in the future though because I feel like I am invested in their happiness too.
I’ve read a few Stevie J Cole novels over the past couple of years and while I enjoyed each and every one of those love stories none of them have moved me as much this book did.
This story was as simplistic as any love story could be and that is what made this a GREAT story. It’s a tale of two people that weathered through childhood, adolescence, bias, judgement and overbearing parentage. And through it all the friendship only got stronger. Distance nor preconceived judgments could never hold a candle to the truest of loves and that is what Sunny and Elias shared.
Sunny was a character aptly names. Her personality and disposition was the full manifestation of the name she was given. Raised to be kind and caring and good that is who she was her entire life. And giving a foster boy from an undesirable family life a hand in friendship was what she was raised to do. So she did just that. She became his sun and he, with his broody persona, became her moon.
Elias and Sunny were total opposites from their upbringing to their personalities but they balanced each other in a way that no one could see nor understand. So as the years pass so much gets in the way of them just being free to be together. As friends or anything more. Because that level of friendship and that connection was bound to strengthen, evolve and become so much more. It was inevitable.
I can’t even describe how I feel right now. I’m truly moved by the characters and their journey to getting the happily ever after they fought so hard for.
This was such a beautiful story!
