Okay so I just caught the look you shot me over your shoulder and you need to know that I can’t even breathe right now.
This book. I laughed. I cried. It took me right back to high school in all the best ways. I can’t wait to read the next two books!
Layla is a senior at a small New Jersey high school. Everybody knows everything about everybody else until Terrance C. Wilmington III, better known as Trip, is introduced as the new guy. Layla and Trip click immediately, but while Layla quickly develops a crush on Trip, it seems that Trip’s feelings are purely platonic. As Layla and Trip begin spending more and more time together, Trip drops hints that he might be interested in something more than friendship – but misunderstandings keep them apart.
But, if you can believe it, there is actually a plot outside of the relationship between Trip and Layla. They have distinct personalities. They have friends. They worry about what they’re doing after high school. They have parents who worry about them. They even have hobbies! This is so rare in a New Adult novel that I just want to find Torrest and give her a huge hug. THANK YOU FOR WRITING A REALISTIC BOOK!
I can’t wait to get books two and three and devour them over a weekend. Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for the free copy.
Final rating: ★★★★☆
