My name is Savannah and I’m the founder Books With Bite. Books have always found a way to my heart with great literature and adventure. Though I may not be a teen, I wish I could be!
After I finished this book I was unsure how to feel about it. So many things happen yet everyone seemed to be okay with it.
Plot: So this plot is basically told in the synopsis. Two girls off on their own and meeting boys. Of course the best friend falls for others crush and enter drama. The plot moves at a fairly good place. Some parts move slow but the reader is caught up by the middle of the story. Lots of history is said so that the reader can better understand the situtaion.
Best Friends/Relationships: Now this the part that REALLY GRINDS MY GEARS. Literally.
*SPOILER ALERT* (It’s in the synopsis anyway but just a warning) Highlight to see.
So Mikalaya falls for Lucy (her best friend) crush. They start to date behind her back and even kiss. Yet, its all dismiss cause she didn’t really like him anyway. WHAT?? get my drift. When Lucy got mad, everyone around her was telling her to let them be together, blah,blah, blah. I didn’t like that at all. What kind of “best friend” would do that? IDK, but this whole drama part did not sit well with me.
Ending: Even the ending felt rush. Suddenly Lucy was okay with everything. She found a new guy and we can all have a happy summer. Umm…no. Just no.
As you can tell, parts of the book I did not like. It is overall, still a good story. Despite my issues, the story carries some good lessons about love and friendship. The girls grow and mature, making hard decisions. Life is after all is not perfect so I get it. If your up for some best friend drama then give this story a go.
