You were my Neverland.

As a fan of the hate-to-love trope, I'm ready for a book that has both 'love' and 'hate' in the title.

Tyson Trice, you deserve happiness and a love more consuming than the deepest ocean ❤

Review to come.

EDIT to include review - Sept 21, 2019

It was eminent. It stood against time. The love I felt for Queen was the closest I would ever feel for another person next to my mother. Looking into Queen's dark eyes, I felt peace and calm. I had found my kingdom. I was home.


CW: murder, domestic violence/abuse, child abuse, classism, racial stereotyping

Wow. It's been a while/>

***Copy received from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review***

I am so sad that this book just did not work for me. It had everything going for it: beautiful cover, enemies-to-lovers, young adult. However, in spite of all of that, it felt like a chore to finish this.

Nandy is one of the worst characters I have ever read. She is a selfish, entitled, spoiled, rich girl and I never really came around to liking her. The reader is told many times that Nandy is actually very sweet and welcoming and incre***Copy

My Review
What happens when the poor kid finds himself living the dream?

When Tyson Trice’s father killed his mother, injured Trice, and turned the gun on himself, it rocked the foundation of Trice’s world. Suddenly he found himself staying with a family in an expensive subdivision at his dying grandfather’s bequest.

The Smiths are good people, but they can’t possibly understand what it was like to grow up in an abusive household on the wrong side of the tracks. Trice

Whitney D. Grandison’s ‘A Love Hate Thing’ is a coming-of-age tale revolving around a girl named Nandy and a boy named Trice.

As they both try to adjust to their new normal, they’ll rediscover the friendship they once had, plus a whole lot more.

There are a lot of things I liked about this novel, one of which is how it takes on socioeconomi

I really enjoyed this debut YA novel by Whitney Grandison. I thought the chemistry between Tyson Trice and Nandy Smith was captivating. I felt like the book centered more around Tyson's story and how he came to live with the Smiths; the author really dives in to his character, whereas I felt like Nandy just remained a self-centered teenager the entire time. She just wanted what she wanted and didn't care about anyone else; she really only "cared" when she felt like she had to. Although I felt li ...more
