Why I Bought It
I loved If I Stay and I Was Here so I felt that I had to read this. I hadn’t even realised that Gayle Forman had brought out a new book until I saw this in Waterstones. I picked it up to read while I was on holiday because it seemed like a nice quick read.
The characters were all very varied and very different from each other which made me wonder from the beginning on how they would ever have a friendship by the end of the novel.
I was a bit disappointed because little actually happened in the book, which is why I don’t really have much to say about this. The novel all takes place across one day and it seems more like a commentary of that day rather than an entertaining plot.
I’ve held off reviewing this for a while because I just wasn’t that int it. I did an age to read it all and it did have a few entertaining parts, but overall I was quite disappointed with this because it wasn’t as good as Gayle Forman’s other books.
