So compulsively readable! Once I got in, I was invested, and didn't move from one spot until I was done. This is just a FUN read. Imagine Jodi Picoult, sans courtrooms, but for Young Adults.

“And life was too short to play chicken with something as important as the person you loved.”
Sophie Gonzales, Only Mostly Devastated

“That’s the beautiful thing about the universe. It puts you through trials, but it never gives you anything you can’t handle. We grow from these things.”
Sophie Gonzales, Only Mostly Devastated

“Maybe our Happily Ever After hadn't worked on the first shot. And maybe Happily Ever Afters weren't a singular event. Maybe they were something you had to work at, and build, and never give up on, as long as they were something you still wanted.”
Sophie Gonzales, Only Mostly Devastated
