I think I would have liked this more if it had been from Lake's point of view (Slammed was my favorite of the series, and I relate more to female narrators, being a female). Another thing I would have liked would be flashbacks of something we really weren't privy too, which was the majority of Julia's illness, her hospital stay, how the relationship between Lake /Will and Lake/Julia and even Will/Julia was navigated while she was really sick.
That being said, as a fan of the first 2 books it's definitely worth reading this one, just don't expect a ton of new developments until the very, very end.
I am going to be short and sweet. There are no words to describe how perfect Will's and Lake's story is. You just have to experience it yourself. All those amazing reviews and rating of Slammed series talk for themselves and This Girl is no exception. This Girl reminded me of watching bonus materials on DVD of my favourite movie - you know what is about to happen, you know how it is going to end but you just cannot get enough and you want more, you want deeper insight into the story and characters. I simply loved it and was really glad that it didn't feel repetitive.
It was absolutely fantastic to relive one of my all time favourite stories from Will's POV. He is great man, brother, boyfriend... And he is also believable character. I loved him in previous books and my love for him even grew in this book.
I admire Colleen Hoover for creating such a adorable and lovable characters who will always have a special place in my heart and on my bookshelf. Will, Lake, Coulder, Kel... I love them all and I am sure I will be coming back to their story.
Anyway, I cannot write much without giving spoilers. All I can say is that if you haven't read this series yet, do so now. You won't regret it. Slammed, Point of Retreat and This Girl are the best you can get when it comes to YA/NA contemporary romance. Freash ideas, unforgettable story, great writing. It is all there. You won't be able to put it down. And when you finish it, you will never forget this powerful and emotional story!
One critique, though, that puzzled me in the original story, is his career as a teacher. Being a teacher myself, I have a really hard time with the legality and believability of it all. He wouldn't be student teaching his own classroom. And i really doubt any 21 y/o is mature enough to professionally handle a classroom with friends and a love interest, even though his circumstances did force him to grow up quickly.
And the timeline, too. They meet in mid-September. Maybe my memory is failing me, but doesn't he mention he's been teaching for about eight weeks? Is this school in session year round? And then they don't speak for three months after the pumpkin carving evening, which we can assume is October, since they also talk about Halloween costumes. So is he graduating in January? That isn't likely.
Enough complaints, because I did enjoy this series, and the poetry, and being introduced to The Avett Brothers. I also love Colleen Hoover's writing and story-telling style. Her work just gets better and better, and she is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors!
