Hunter and Molly's story is so raw and real. There were so many things that I loved about this book.
Their connection to one another has existed since childhood. They both kept their longingness to themselves, and loved from afar. Their age difference was an issue as teenagers.
Now adults, life has not necessarily been kind. After a psycho roommate ruins everything they could have always had... They are now trying to co-exist around one another back in their hometown.
I love Molly's life in that it is so real. Ferraro pulls no punches. The snotty, self-absorbed teenager and the meek child are so real. Her struggles of a single mom are not fluffed over. I felt for her. The descriptions and actions are so real-life, one can't help but to be connected to her.
Hunter's confusion and anger over what he thought went on with Molly are so realistic and believable. You can't help but to wish for him to find a way to move past his broken heart and anger.
Lies and truth. That's the biggest part of this story. There are so many morals we could take from it. In the end, this is a story of an undying love. I highly recommend this one, as I tend to do with all of Ferraro's books!
I live in New England with my young family. I’m a stay at home mom to two very active children. For all of you who are familiar with the stress of this job, I decided to complete an item on my bucket list and write a book. When I’m not writing, you will find me cooking, reading, shopping or being silly with the kids. In my opinion, one of life’s greatest pleasure is being able to get lost in a book.
