“I wait for him, the cold seeping through my clothes, until it finally dawns on me that he’s not coming back. And I wonder why he chose her instead of me? Why he went looking for her when I was right there.”
Tai and Juliet have been best friends forever – since they met at kindy and decided to get married in first grade.
They understand each other in the way that only best friends can.
They love music, beach walks, energy drinks and, they are slowly discovering, each other.
As they dream of adventures beyond the HSC – a future free of homework, curfews and parents, a life together – their plans are suddenly and dramatically derailed.
For Tai is sick.
And not everything you wish for can come true.
This review is going to be completely RANT-TASTIC and filled with SPOILERS so if you liked the book, or don’t want to know what happens – look away now! (otherwise, you have been warned)
I really wanted to like this book, every since it started traveling through a group of my Goodreads friends/group members, they were saying how much they cried while reading, and how emotional it was. But almost immediately, the main character Juliet started driving me completely and utterly batshit. I get that most teenagers (or at least those in the ‘new adult’ genre) are self-obsessed, but she honestly took the cake.
