I could not put this book down! Loved the movie!
So, the actual writing is very good. There aren’t really any plot holes, and she’s very good at building a mental picture. HOWEVER. This story is telling two sides of a straight-up abusive relationship. If you’ve been there, you know how all-consuming it can be, so points for accuracy, but this isn’t the type of thing that little kids should be reading and modeling after. Again, really well-written, but the content and the way it’s portrayed is problematic.
In the nicest way possible, this book is garbage. It’s nothing but boring repetitive nonsense, not to mention, it promotes toxic relationships. To everyone saying “this book is amazing” or “this book is the best thing I’ve ever read” have you ever picked up a book in your life?You have classics like The Giver, Charlottes Web, heck even Lord of the Flies was more interesting than this. If you want to read a really amazing book may I suggest ANYTHING other than this.

This is a great book for young adults. It shows how some relationships can be. Through the good and the bad. Tessa and Hardin have an extremely toxic relationship and at times they are annoying af but, that’s also the real world and not every relationship is perfect. Not every book will be sunshine and rainbows. This book kept me on my toes and now I’m ready to read the next one in line.
This book is amazing. Kept me on my toes the entire time. The writing is amazing.
Such an amazing book 💞💞
Throughout the whole story, Hardin keeps being a jerk to Tessa and she ends up crying and then forgiving him; it’s the most annoying and repetitive thing I’ve ever read. Please yourself $12 and don’t buy this joke of a book.
