Don`t read it! Every lovestory needs a happy ending. This is so sad. Don`t read it.
I personally loved the plot and for the most part it was written nicely. I loved the characters' relationship mostly because I encourage diverse relationships hence the original reason for buying this book. However I didn't like the ending at all. The other built this cool relationship and has the reader wanting them to fight society and overcome their situation to be together but nooo... (Sorry if this was kinda a spoiler)
I was warned. So, only fair to pass the warning along. This novel does not end with a HEA. It ends up breaking your heart for Emma and Anton. Their start is rocky. Two very different people purposely thrown together for a final senior project. In the process of writing a group paper, each character has to learn about each other culturally. What wasn't in the project outline was for them to fall in love. "You're a senior. Know what I mean? It's time to grow up and deal with it. And when I say 'it' I mean, well, everything." Emma and Anton go through everything. I mean everything. A rich white girl befriending a poor black boy is already tough enough. They have partial support of family and friends. And then there are others who feel that their relationship should never be. I loved both Emma and Anton. They tried so hard to strong. To want what they wanted no matter the odds were against them. They both fumble, yet learn how to be with the other. But it's not enough. The writing is done in third person POV that is often hard to get right in flow. I felt that Ms. Walden nailed the pace and dialogue of the characters. You really could feel and know where they were coming from. I gave the novel a .5 star deduction as I have to agree with a few other reviewers. The concluding chapters left me with a lot of questions unanswered and felt a bit rushed. However, the epilogue does attempt to give you closure - not the closure you want - but some closure. This was a first time novel read from this author. I was very impressed with the storyline and writing. I really look forward to reading more from her. If you are looking for something different. Maybe a bit raw and real, this story is for you. You've been warned- be prepared for tissues. 4.5 out of 5 stars
I cant believe it. I hate it. After everything i cant belive he let her go. I cant belive this author did this to us. I lobed her book good, and though this o,was going to be the same but no, this book left me feeling heart broken and wrong. Do NOT READ. Waste of money big time. I seriously thou it was gonna have a happy ending and i was exited when they met again bu tit was just so sad how they didnt say what the wanted to say.and i hated that he ending STILL working at UPS like he didnt make nothing out of his life. Idk. The only way this author can fix this is by writing part 2 where he actually called her back and they start over. I hated i,thos book like no other. Do NOT READ. And to think i was dying to read it. Smh, i think this is it for me qith this author, thank you very much!.....
Hoodie? Did u get locked out? Go to the res before this.
