How do you say goodbye to the love of your life when you are only twelve years old? Finn O’Malley and Lucy Butler had to figure out how to do just that as Finn left his home in Clarkstown, New York for Two Roads School of Music in California. Being a young talented musician, Finn thought it best for his future but wasn’t sure about leaving Lucy behind. Now, just one semester short of graduation and a promising future at UCLA, he throws it all away to return home. This leaves his family and friends questioning why. The Finn that has returned home is not the same boy who left. He’s broken and withdrawn. Lucy and his sister Rylan want nothing more than to bring back the Finn they know and love. From the moment Finn reconnects with Lucy, he feels the one thing he hasn’t felt in years—hope. As Lucy starts to bring him out of his shell, Finn begins to realize what real love really is. When his past collides with his future, how will Finn deal with the love he needs and the love he despises? Can Lucy help heal what lies inside?
First off I want to make sure everyone knows that I enjoyed reading this book, the plot was amazing, it was mainly the execution in the beginning that I didn't enjoy. I didn't enjoy not having enough of a back story of the two main characters. You get a small glimpse into their life's as children together, but not enough.
Now after getting the main thing I didn't enjoy out of the way, I want to talk about the things I really enjoyed and that is the Plot. I loved this story line. I loved the writing style that the author, Lindsey Gray, wrote this story in.
This story is filled with deep scars and lots of pain, but a true love as well. I haven't read a story like this in a long time and it made me want to reach out and hug all the characters in this book. I wanted to make it all better for them somehow, but I knew I couldn't so I just kept on reading, hoping it would get better somehow for them.
I highly recommend this book to all my reading friends. I know you will enjoy it as much as I did.
