The book literally tore me apart. It was so beautiful and bittersweet. Yes I bawled my eyes out. This is heartbreak in it's truest form.
I loved Delilah from the beginning. She was wise beyond her years. She was definitely mature for her age. She had this happy go lucky personality to her and didn't have a care in the world to what others thought of her. She was funny and witty and strong. I could totally see myself in her thoughts. She saw the beauty in everything, in life. She was brave. She was faced with one of the worse situations possible and decided to take it head on instead of wallowing somewhere. My heart broke for this girl. I knew immediately what her secret was the moment I read about how she was perceiving the world around her.
Rivers - my heart breaks for him too. To find someone who makes you feel alive again and be struck down with tragedy again. I love how he refuses to pretend for Delilah. He says how he feels. I can't imagine being in his position and holding it together. I would love to see a second book based on him.
Beautifully written book that will break your heart. Read at your own discretion. I will be thinking about this book for days, I just know it. This is one of those books that you read and just sticks with you for awhile. It's def too brutal for me to read it again. I don't think my heart could take reading it again. But if you love this book as much as I did, I do suggest reading "When it rains.." By Lisa De Jong. Another bittersweet book to read as well.
Now I gave this book 3stars because of the sad ending and connotation to it. Books are an escape for me, the real world being too harsh, depressing and brutal all the time. For a book to be about dying is too harsh a reality for me. Although the author wrote the hell out of the book and kept it largely interesting I still think I'd rather not read a book where one of the main characters die. I feel this way because it's always unfair for the other person who stayed behind and most times the story does not include them finding someone else so they remain perpetually pining for their loved dead ones - this book was no different in this regard.
Don't get me wrong it was a great book but I would rather have had the heroine not die. Thankfully I read enough of the review to know that something negatively major happened to avoid giving myself a head ache from the crying this book would typically draw out so I didn't shed a tear but I was heavily sad but skipped through the sad reminiscing at the end. Somehow I'd hoped the death wouldn't happen but the author wrote it the best way she could which was tasteful.
Overall it was a great book, very well written but not just fully my cup of tea. Now I'm almost too afraid to read another story from this author for fear of her being this morbid!
I'd buy this book all over again but was glad for the tear jacker warning reviews.
This is a NA book, but is SO MUCH MORE! It is a romance, a book about coming of age, a book about overcoming life's obstacles, about mending relationships between a mother and daughter and a father and son, and a book with so many lessons to be learned. The most important lesson is probably to not judge a book by it's cover. Rivers and Delilah learn this only when faced with tragedy. For me, this book spoke to the motherly side of me. I am a recent empty-nester and have struggled with the relationship with my daughter. Without giving too much of this book away, I will say that I now, after many tears, look at our relationship with a different perspective.
There are some authors I admire for their clarity. They seem to think deeply at all times and make it seem so effortless. They are the authors I go to when I need clarity in my own life. Paulo Coelho has always been that author for me, but I just added Lindy Zart to that list! Thank you, Lindy Zart, for this amazing story!
