Love! (contains spoilers)

I really love this book. I was lucky enough to beta read this. I still feel it may be one of Knightly's best (though Bright may be my first favorite by just a hair).

The characters, Mary, the plot. I felt that heartbreak as Sid and her dad are in the hospital and the heartbreak before that when she and Teddy are interrupted by a horrifying phone call.

Knightly captures the feelings of the characters so well. She understands the different ways people handle grief.

So Much DRAMA! Constant crying, sobbing, spiraling, self-pitying drama! It was all I could do to get through this, praying the whole time it would get better. It didn’t. This book was exhausting. So many angsty tropes wrapped up in a barely-there plot. Seriously, hardly anything happens, except lots and lots of crying. So much crying. Descriptions of people and places are pretty vague outside the title characters, and even they could’ve used more fleshing out. England was a waste. Gavin was a ca ...more

New author for me, loved the book. (There is sexual content and swearing, nothing graphic. The sexual content is between consenting adults.) Great story of two kids who grew up together. It's told through the eyes of each one, Sid and Teddy. I will be reading more from this author.
I received a free copy of this book from "Instafreebie", with no obligation to review.

Unique writing style

This was my first read by this author. The book was definitely geared to a young teen demographic but was well written.

Where do I start with this review? This was another YA novel, but unfortunately one I was not a fan of. It was about two best friends, Sid & Teddy, and there was just too much back and forth between them. Another thing that MAJORLY annoyed me was the formatting of the book. It changed chapter (and also POV) every 2 pages. The flow was interrupted frequently that way and it hindered me from getting into the story and connecting with the characters.

Wonderful read

I liked this book a lot. 😺. It was a page turned and emotional at times. For a younger teen crowd I would recommend.

H.D. Knightley loves weaving tales about characters who are in way over their head. People faced with huge environmental issues—light-polluted skies, droughts, piles of hoarded things, encroaching water—that rise above and carry on anyway.

She likes a story in which everything is a disaster, yet they kiss in the end, so it's all good.

Her characters are not perfectly strong, more like creatively o
