And he's right. Maybe you never will and that'll suck, but you can't keep doing this. The blame and the self-loathing and the bullshit. I can't watch that. It makes me hate you for hating yourself. I don't want to lose you. But I'd rather lose you if it means you'll be happy. I think if you come back with me today, you'll never be okay.

And I'll never be okay if you aren't. I need to know that there's a way for people like us to end up okay. I need to know that there even is such a thing as okay, maybe even good, and it's out there and we just haven't found it yet. There's got to be a happier ending than this, here. There's got to be a better story.

Because we deserve one. You deserve one. Even if it doesn't end with you coming back to me. Sep 30, Tough Critic Book Reviews rated it it was amazing. Book Trailer: This book amazed the funny right out of me, but replaced it with something more. So much more that I can't even curse properly! It was so well written it hurt. By the end I was bled completely dry of all thought How it affected me.

How it became part of me. At first I thought it started off slow, but I'm convinced now that this was for my own good. I needed to put my baby toe in the water first. I don't think I could have survived being thrown in. I needed that time. You have to trust me that it's all part of the journey, part of the experience. There were times where I felt physically ill.

I wanted to throw up. Maybe I did. In my mouth. Just a little bit. There was even a point where I wondered why my site kept moving. I realized that it was my shaking hands, my pounding heart and my heaving chest that kept causing my site to have a seizure! You're probably asking yourself how could someone possibly get so emotional about a book.

At some point between the soulful dialogue and raw emotion The words defined romance and the characters touched my heart. There was something about the emotion of this book that was almost cleansing. I felt, I broke, but I healed!

The Sea of Tranquility reminded me that books aren't just entertaining; they're more than that.

This was more than that. It caused me to feel, invaded my thoughts, my heart View all 41 comments. A must-read!!

One of my favorite reads of the year! The Sea of Tranquility is a beautifully written, deep and heart-wrenching drama about two damaged teens surviving unchangeable tragedies, and devastating grief, hurt, and pain; learning to cope with them, accept them, and somehow finding healing, safety and finally happiness and love in each other along the way.

Its quiet and very, very slow bui Beautiful. Its quiet and very, very slow building but it just felt SO real and believable. Without my even realizing it, this quiet book had me worked up to the point where my heart was pounding and felt like it was being being ripped out.

The emotional punch took a while to build, but when it hit, it was huge and powerful and took my breath away. This is not your typical romance where boy meets girl and they live happily ever after.

I'd call it more of a character-driven drama with a bit of a YA romance in it. It highlights the realities, horrors and imperfections of life and, yes, love while still having a powerfully uplifting ending, "My name is Nastya Kashnikov. I was a piano-playing prodigy I was murdered two and a half years ago. At her new school, she meets Josh, a guy who just wants to build things and be left alone, who everyone avoids and yet no one messes with. Surrounded by worlds of pain, death and self-imposed isolation, both of them have survived hurts no one their age should ever have been through and are both struggling with having survived and living with that pain every day.

One night, out on a run, Nastya ends up at Josh's house. He's there, in his garage that's filled with tools and wood and he's making something. For the first time in a long time, Nastya feels a connection of sorts with him and just sits down, quietly and watches him work.

She keeps coming back every day and so begins their strange, yet beautiful relationship. Joy, fear, frustration, longing, friendship, anger, need, despair, love, lust. He's given me a place to belong. She wasn't helpless or frail, despite a part of her soul being broken. She was strong, intelligent, witty, perceptive and although she made choices that people around her didn't understand, they were her choices to make. She was sad and angry, dealing with a tragic act of random cruelty that took away her dreams.

So she copes with it in the best way she knows how, by doing what feels right to her, not what anyone else wanted her to do.

I loved that about her. My mind started getting put back together, too. I think it's just that the pieces got put back a little out of order. It seems like the more my body healed, the more fractured my mind became, and there aren't enough wires and screws to fix the breaks in it.

It's cheap, but it works. Drew swear by it. But I'm afraid that in this particular instance it would result in one of two things: My money's on the knee. Quiet, a bit of a loner, but deeply understanding, caring and protective. What I loved most about him was how strongly he respected her boundaries - giving her a safe zone to her be herself.

The real her. The one she feels she has to hide from the world. Giving her the space and security of being able to share exactly as much or as little of herself as she wanted.

No judgments. No questions. No obligations. He knew that she areas of her that were locked up in her hurt and he never pushed her outside her comfort zone, no matter how badly he wanted to know what happened to her. It is slow building in every possibly way. Nothing is rushed.

In the end, the slowness contributed to how powerfully the ending hit. And the ending was really, really beautiful. And by really, really beautiful, I mean that I read the last two words over and over again with tears in my eyes and my hand over my mouth.

I literally just sat there crying, rereading the page, letting the powerful emotional punch hit me every time. And don't go flipping to the back of the book to see what those words are! Seriously, you'll ruin the whole book if you do and there's no getting it back The author is an amazingly gifted, brilliant storyteller.

The book is worth reading for the writing alone. Her style is beautiful, evocative, poetic, and deeply meaningful. I'm very much looking forward to more of her work.

If you are looking for a hard-core romance, maybe wait before you pick this one up, but everyone should read this book at some point in their lives. This is not a story of tragedy.

Parts of it are sad, but the tragedies happen before the book begins and it's about the characters dealing with it. So don't worry, all your favs characters will still be there in the end!!

Fear not! Here's how I'd cast Josh and Nastya: View all 76 comments. The Sea Of Tranquility is quite possibly one of the most beautifully written books I've read in its genre. The five stars allotted for rating just don't seem to suffice. Everything about this book pulled me in: The story opens with a powerful prologue, igniting instant intrigue. We are introduced to the horrific aftermath of Nastya's tragedy, but won't learn of its details until later on as these layers quietly unfold.

She has survived a heart-wrenching trauma that has left her a broken shell of the hopeful person she once was. When the pressures of pretending to be 'okay' around her parents become too great, she moves in with her aunt and reluctantly attends high school again. Nastya transforms her look in hopes to deflect all attention to her provocative appearance--rather than the turmoil festering within.

Contrary to the weaknesses Natsya carried, she had a vigorous inner strength that surprised me. Her witty narrative was captivating and her inner dialogue flowed as gracefully as the music she once played. When Nastya meets the entrancing Josh Bennett , the safe and twisted world she'd created begins to shift. Josh is equally broken and lost, and concealed entirely from the world around him. He has suffered great loss and has been wrapped in a social bandaid of denial by the terrified people around him who ignorantly believe that what they ignore cannot exist I'm utterly floored by this author's ability to move me so dramatically with words.

The writing was flawless, and the symbolism that drenched each page was extraordinary. I find it fascinating when a story can create conflicting emotions simultaneously; I was incredibly somber, yet so hopeful and even happy. But my favorite message this story presented was the ability to appreciate and live the life you have, instead of regretting the one you don't Book Stats: A gradual connection.

Angsty, but beautiful.

Damaged but redeemable. Broken yet strong. Excellent portrayals. Highly emotional and heartbreaking. Mystery with a slow reveal.

Symbolic and insightful. First person: Alternating, dual perspectives. Fans of Pushing the Limits. Oh my god, I just don't know what to say about this book.

I seriously considered leaving the rating blank because The Sea of Tranquility isn't something that can easily be summed up in stars, my feelings for it are much more complex than that. I do realise that I'm pretty much the only person in the universe who gave this less than 4 stars and most gave it 5 and there are a number of reasons, but I'll get to those in a minute. But it's important to know that 3 stars isn't really accurate at a Oh my god, I just don't know what to say about this book.

But it's important to know that 3 stars isn't really accurate at all. On goodreads, 3 stars means "I liked it" and I think I can say that there were no parts of this book that fit that description: I either loved it or was annoyed by it. There were 5-star bits and there were 1-star bits and somehow my rating has fallen somewhere in the middle.

Let me tell you what I loved. This book is brimming with emotion. It's an intense, painful read about two complicated individuals who are both haunted by their pasts and find some level of solace in each other. There were parts that were so equally beautiful and painful that I was hanging on every word, propelled along by Millay's gorgeous writing and often hilarious dialogue.

Nastya is easy to love, from her original snarkiness that should have you laughing to the darker sides of her character that will draw you in and make you need to know her secrets. And, boy, does she have secrets. I also quite liked reading about her obsession with names and their meanings, even though it was incredibly cheesy that the love interest's name - Josh - means salvation. Cue eye roll.

I think one of the best bits of this novel, though, was Drew. He was the only character who surprised me, the one who was introduced as a typical lecherous jerk and developed into something much more real and entirely lovable.

I really love it when characters turn out to be more interesting than I expected them to be and Drew definitely delivered on that front. Plus, he is the source of some much-needed comic relief in this rather dark story, providing many laughs and memorable moments. This is a standard contemporary YA romance. With standard contemporary YA romance characters who have standard contemporary YA romance angst-filled issues.

Which I guess is absolutely fine if you find yourself returning to this genre again and again in search of the same goods you got last time. In fact, this novel is perfect for fans of Pushing the Limits another book I felt conflicted about , they offer me some basic entertainment but they follow the same pattern and are completely predictable. They use stereotypes for characters except, like I said, Drew , they always feature issue-ridden protagonists who need saving, the relationships always evolve through the same cycle of doubt, jealousy and general angst.

Oh, and now attempted rape scenes seem to be a requirement as well. Even though I did grow to like Josh more towards the end, I had a lot of trouble with his character to start with and I never fully recovered from it. In some ways, he reminded me of Ethan from Beautiful Creatures in that he saw himself and eventually Nastya too as being morally above everyone else. He is more critical of himself as the novel progresses but I found myself really annoyed at him for turning his nose up at the "vapid, cute and popular" girls who flirt with guys.

The usual stereotypes are employed here, using the blonde, pretty and popular girl as an unnecessarily mean airhead. She's even called "pretty in an obvious way" And that's such a horrible, bitchy comment. Josh even comments on how morally superior he is to Drew by saying "I don't think I'd be desperate enough to sink to Drew's level". This is why I found it really hard to care about the guy. Nastya, of course, doesn't try to hook up with all the hot guys so she is also a morally superior being in Josh's eyes.

For a further example, see my status update: On top of that, it's all just a little too cheesy for me at times - an odd thing to say for a book that is simultaneously so dark - but one thing I really can't stand in romance novels is pet names. I find it gross, actually. And in this Josh always calls Nastya "sunshine" and I just do not think it's cute. I know some readers will and that's great, but I just This is obviously a matter of taste and perhaps your eyes are filling up right now when you read that.

If so, this is the book for you, but it doesn't do it for me. I think it even takes something away from the very real emotion when they say something that's straight out of your standard romcom.

But, to end on one last positive, Millay writes sex scenes that are handled expertly, honestly and gave me a few tugs on the old heartstrings. This book ticks the boxes at both ends of the scale for me, but it will definitely be your new favourite if you love contemporary romance. View all 29 comments. Makes you appreciate when nouns and verbs and adjectives are strung together to form these magical little sentences that touch your heart and you don't even know they're doing it until you're so sucked into the story you can't put it down and 4 hours have gone by and you haven't eaten or moved or even blinked because you couldn't possibly stop.

And then he kisses me. I would kiss him forever. I will kiss him forever. I know it like I know my own name. That's what this book did. It makes you feel it all. Every word. Every character. Every scene. Every heartbreak. You are distractingly, even-if-that-is-not-a-real-word, pretty. I can keep going. It was captivating, heartbreaking, haunting, romantic, hypnotizing, ballsy, antsy, broken, and an all-time favorite of mine. The characters were probably the most realistic I have ever come across and broke my heart and put it back together again.

I was swept away by its power and there was not one rushed moment, not one wasted scene. The slow build of the story just contributed to such a powerful, amazing ending. The two words it ended on? The epitome of brilliance. Find Me On: View all 79 comments.

Nov 12, Ana O rated it really liked it Shelves: Nothing is perfect. It's not even good yet. But maybe. This book is not made of sunshine and roses. The Sea of Tranquility is full of complex and broken characters. Their lives have been full of pain, suffering, loneliness and violence. This book takes you on a journey of healing and self-discovery. It's dramatic, yet ultimately inspiring. Nastya is a believable, likeable heroine. I felt bad about what she's had to go through.

I admire her because of her strength, and her ability to move for Nothing is perfect. I admire her because of her strength, and her ability to move forward. She knows she will never be the same but she intends to keep fighting. Josh is no stranger to heartbreak. He had his own demons to fight, despite his young age. He's drawn to Nastya and he finds himself falling in love with her.

Are happy endings really possible? I guess you'll have to read it to find out. Nothing about the book is incredibly exceptional, but I loved its originality. It's certainly different from other YA novels. This book is definitely a bit of a challenge, but it is absolutely worth it. NF ft. Dear book,. View all 62 comments. And I have. I'm not afraid of death anymore. I'm afraid of everything else. She was once an accomplished pianist but then something happens.

She dies. She dies a horrific brutal violent death. Yes, death touches her for ninety six seconds before she is brought back to life. Only to come back ruined with no memory of how she got that way.

And then one day she remembers. She remembers him. And what he did. Unwilling to tell a soul She decides to run. She runs from everything and everyone she knows.

Her Father can't save her, her mother can't save her and her brother can't save her. Hell she is convinced that she can't be saved. So she moves two hours away to live with her aunt Margot. Now in a new town and a new school where no one knows her or the horrific thing that happened to her.

With hopes to graduate without anyone finding out who she really is so she can move on with her life. Then a late night run changes everything when it leads her to Josh Bennett's garage. He has lost everyone his mother, sister, father and both grandparents. When he is not in school he is in his garage building something. If he is not in his garage building then he is at Home Depot getting materials so that he can build something.

This of course makes sense when you learn his favorite class at school is shop. His love for building developed young when he was taught by his dad, it was something they enjoyed to do together.

Josh may not be a mute but he is definitely a loner.

A loner that just so happens to have a best-friend that is his exact opposite. At school Josh is given clear space. What I'm saying is nobody F's with this kid. And that's just the way he like's it.

She practically pushes her way in to his life whether he wants her in it or not. Love eventually blooms. She starts to feel safe. And he starts to feel terrified. Because he has lost everyone he loves. Thoughts This book was filled with unforgettable moments and lines. And it's in the top five percentile no doubt. It has a perfect balance of mystery, humor, romance, and intensity.

The use of symbolism comes at you in so many ways that your brain races to catch up to it. It was used with hands, notebooks, clothes, and names. For instance hands. Nastya obsessed over other peoples ability to use their natural talents with just their hands. Her jealousy was potent at times because of the loss she herself experienced with her hands.

One of the many things that makes this book awesome is the character development. The author does a very good job with allowing you to get to know each main character and what makes them tick.

You feel their actions said and unsaid. You understand why they choose to do certain things for example why they hold back or why they give you just enough. Another awesome thing was the secondary love story with Drew and Tierney. I loved these two! I would love to see Drew have his own book I adored his character. Just thought I would throw that in to the universe to see what happens. It's an invitation, a welcome, the knowledge that I am accepted here. He hasn't given me a place to sit.

And I look forward to reading more from this author. Now go forth and read. Then come tell us about it on Goodreads! View all 75 comments. Not because she can't but because she chooses not to. She tries to go through life unnoticed, while never forgetting that day when her life got taken away from her. She meets a boy named Josh , who is not without problems of his own. They become friends and end up helping each other heal.

Better late than never! I really liked the message this book sends. This is definitely a type of book young adults should be reading. Sometimes you are just in the wrong place at the wrong time. It's a story about dealing with pain, accepting your fate and moving on with your life.

It's a story about letting others in on your suffering and helping you heal. No matter how hard that might be.

The two main characters made slow progress going from strangers skeptical of each other to friends There is slow burn romance here but if you are looking for steam this is not that type of book. The emphasis of the story is on forgiving, letting go and moving on. Fans of Amy Harmon think would probably enjoy this type of story. If you like second chance stories and slow burn romance I suggest you pick this book up and give it a chance!

Why should I care about their class schedules or which teacher was an idiot or the high school angst? I mean, who cares? Nastya is a twat and I felt zero empathy sympathy for her ordeal. Not enough plot. I respect all the 5-star reviews but, I simply don't get it.

View all 45 comments. I've been crying for like the last hour. Fucking shit To say this book broke me would be an understatement. I can't write a proper review at the moment because I'm an emotional wreck But I will say Once I can get my emotions in order, I will attempt at a good review.

Bravo Katja, this book topped my list. I love you I love you, not like that Review to come. Updated Review: I didn't want to finish it I wish I could experience it again but I am not sure my heart could take it just yet.

But soon, I will read it again, because I need to. And I want to. I can't get this book or the characters out of my head. I took a small nap and the last thing I thought about as tears were still coming down my face was Josh and all his gloriousness. There's a girl. And there's a boy.

Both lost and broken from their pasts. They are just trying to move through the motions and figure out where they fit in with the fucked up world that they're forced to live in. Neither of them want it, so they stay away from others as much as possible. Everyone ignores them at school, like they're some kind of freaks-and in a way they are. But they don't care being ignored because it's better than facing their reality. And the reality is this: Nastya had a traumatic event in her life and she moved away from her home and family to live with her Aunt Margot to escape to gain a new identity at a new school and to be alone where no one will acknowledge her existence.

And she likes it that way. Josh Bennett is a lost and lonely boy who lost everything. He lost his family and became alone. He has one best friend Drew who is at his side no matter what.

And he's the kind of friend that he needs to keep him in line but also that will give Josh his space. He also has Drew's amazing parents and sister which you kind of hate for a bit of the book but eventually she turns out okay.

Josh sits in the courtyard at school everyday like a ghost, where no one fucks with him. No one acknowledges his existence either Once she enters his world, there's no going back. Their chemistry sizzles and it's utterly captivating and beautiful. But she doesn't open up to him right away and he doesn't either. It's a prolonging process but it's amazing.

She's intrigued by the fact that not a single person other than Drew Leighton will go near him so she sticks around to solve the mystery that is Josh Fucking Bennett. In which case, they eventually solve each other. My Thoughts: Okay, I'm still in tears when I think about this book because I didn't know what to expect coming into it when I bought it. I saw the amazing amount of raving reviews and my interest was piqued. So I bought it and even put a couple of other really awesome and amazing I might add books I was reading beforehand on hold because once I opened this book I couldn't stop.

Though it took me 2 days to read it, and I could have read it in one day, I took my time because every page was enthralling and mesmerizing. I didn't want to stop yet I didn't want to be finished just yet either. My heart broke, my lungs burned, my eyes stung, my nose ran like a faucet. I loved everything about this book. I loved the characters.

I loved the story eventhough it was really heartbreaking , I loved the banters between the characters. I loved the writing-so compelling and smooth and perfect.

I was frustrated with both Nastya and Josh at times, but my love for them never faltered because I understood why they made the choices they did. The characters Each one carried something amazing and awesome to the story. Drew was funny and he was a great friend to both Nastya and Josh. I loved his sexual innuendos.

Damn, he was a sarcastic ass, but the best kind. Mr and Mrs Leghton were great too. They really showed their caring side for Josh and really looked out for him and they were welcoming to Nastya the first time they met her.

Sunday dinner at the Leighton's house was nothing short of amusing and entertaining. I felt like I was there with them. Sarah Drew's sister , again she pissed me off but I learned to be okay with her.

Tierny, I would have liked to see more of her in it but from what I did get of her was great. I could tell she cared for Drew. I wished they would get their shit together though and admit their feelings wishful thinking, I know since they are both stubborn as Hell.

Nastya's parents weren't in it too much but enough to know I loved them. They went through hell at the events that took place a couple years ago with their daughter. I can't imagine the pain they suffered. My heart broke for them. I liked Asher too. He was a protective brother to her and it made me smile, but also made me sad the reason he had to be so protective. She was such a broken soul, you didn't know if she'd ever be put back together.

I cried for her. So many tears. I cringed and sobbed and wished I could reach out and hug the ever loving shit out of her because she needed it. But she was a strong and brave girl too. Also, I loved that she didn't put up with anyone's bull shit.

It showed she had some respect left for herself, even if she didn't think so. Her wit was awesome! She had me laughing alot because the things that came out of her mouth was not what you were expecting. But it was awesome! She was such an amazing and memorable character and I'll never forget her. And now, I save the best for last. Josh Bennett. The man who makes wood and buidling things the most sexiest thing in the whole damn world. Josh fucking Bennett. God's most amazing creature. I have no idea how to put into words what I felt, feel for him.

I still see him in my head and I drool, or smile or cry. All I know is if you've read this book, you understand. And when you do read this book, you'll understand and feel the same way.

He will forever have a place in my top book boyfriend list. I was mad at him at times but I always loved him because he was so broken I wished I could have pieced his soul back together and hug him and tell him it would be alright. And then I wanted to see what else he could do with his hands beside building shit.

Because Hoooooooly shit, I got a good idea what he could do. He will forever live in my heart and I will always love this boy who turned my world upside down. It made me love him even more, as if that would be possible!! But it also made my heart break so much worse for him. The pain he suffered, I suffered. The love he felt, I felt. It felt so real and so raw and so ridiculously unbearable. Gah, I can go on and on about Josh. Everything that came out of his mouth was pure torture and pain mixed with regret and loss and love.

It's a little slow in the beginning, which to me it didn't seem that way. But it needed to be slow paced to set the plot and once it gets moving You don't want to put it down but then you don't want to finish it right away either.

It was everything I need in a contemporary romance-with characters that will steal your heart and a plot that will have you turning every page, while cursing the one minute, swooning for Josh the next minute, panting the another minute, crying, begging, pleading, laughing, crying and loving!

For Josh, I'd do it again and again and again. Because seriously, where was a Josh Bennett when I was in high school?? They didn't exist.

I can't believe this is Katja's first novel. It feels like she's been writing forever. Sure it wasn't perfect but it was perfect enough for me not to care about perfect grammar or any of that.

This is a book I will be reading again and again just to have my Joshy fix. And also I need the paperback copy when it's available because this baby is going on my shelf of favorites. And anyone who is wondering Yes, you need to read it. And yes, you need to read it NOW.

I'm telling you, have tissues at the ready because I guarentee you will be shedding quite a few. Okay well I leave you with my favorite quotes that touched my heart. I am so lost now, I want my friends back.

I miss them already. Last night's dinner, the charred remains of my dignity, and apparently, now, my undergarments, too. What else did I leave on Josh Bennett's bathroom floor? Maybe if I can solve him and he can solve me, we can explain each other. Maybe that's what I need. Someone to explain me. To say fuck sanity and healing and closure.

To say that I am the only thing she needs to be well and whole and alive. But we both know that's not true. And when he does, part of me is lost. But it's the part that's twisted and mangled and wrong, and for just that moment, with his hands in my hair and his lips on my mouth, I can pretend that it never existed. I need to slap myself upside the head. View all 59 comments. I am moved beyond words.

What an incredibly moving, beautifully tragic novel. Poignant, heartrending, moving, touching, emotional, captivating, intense, tragic, wistful, tender, dreamy, hopeful, enthralling, impassioned, sentimental, stirring, inspiring, monumental, unforgettable. These are Just some of but not all of my descriptions of this book. Whatever I write in my review it will not give this book justice, I know that this story has buried itself in my heart and it's there to stay.

Every moment of this book was pure undiluted writing genius and I've added myself to the long line of readers that fell in complete book love with this story. Here are my starry-eyed albeit insufficient 'The sea of Tranquility' book thoughts What's it all about?

Nastya Kashnikov is living a second life of heartache, pain and intolerable memories, one tragic incident, one moment of time robbed her of the bright, happy girl she once was. This broken girl just wants to live her life and attempt to hide her secrets from those around her. Josh Bennett has had more than his fair share of loss and heartbreak, left all alone at the young age of seventeen this young man wants nothing more than to be left to move forward.

When Josh and Nastya's lives collide so begins the journey of redemption, healing, friendship, and love and ultimately the story of one tragically beautiful girl and one solitary boy who find each other amongst the pain of their own difficulties. What did I love? There are not enough stars or descriptive comments than can sum up this novel and it's tragic perfection. I felt so immersed in this story everything about it grabbed all of my emotions. Every single character had their place and purpose, the writing was flawless and the dialogue was enchanting.

The whole entire book was highlight-worthy and addictive, when I wasn't reading the story I was thinking about it and when I was reading I could not think about anything else. This story has crawled into my soul and has decided to take up permanent residency there, the characters were outlandishly good and the plot was extraordinary.

I don't think I can put into words the talent that this author has poured into her work. Everything about this book made me respond with heartbreaking emotions, the author wrote in such a way that demanded that I felt every conceivable emotion during the story that she was creating. Josh and Sunshine are the ultimate in young adult characters, I felt like I had ring side tickets to their journey towards redemption. Everything about them and their lives had me glued to the pages, I fell in love with the both of them as the story progressed.

I can't go without mentioning Drew his friendship and loyalty stood out for me as a winning combination in this story, I loved that the author created characters that all fitted so perfectly together and I know that future books will have a difficult time topping the admiration that I have for them all. Ultimately if you are an admirer of this genre and have not read this story then I urge you to do so.

I can guarantee that this novel will break you to pieces and then fix you up better than you were before. Final thoughts It's been days since I have finished this book and I'm still not able to shake the thoughts and emotions from finishing a novel of such amazing depths.

This has to be crowned as a favourite, there is nothing that I enjoy more than being swept away by the work of an author and I know with a certainty that these characters will stay in my heart forever. I urge those that have not read this book to go grab it, it has my heart I want it to gain yours too.

Enjoy, kisses. Recommended to Duchess Nicole by: This is one of those books that make me want to re-evaluate all of my five star ratings. I had sad tears in my eyes, and then angry tears. Then I read some more and was crying devastated tears. Then happy tears. So happy that I felt floaty and high. Point is, this book made me FEEL so many emotions that I just gave up trying to understand them at some point.

Colorblind by Counting Crows https: I found myself unable to stop thinking about Nastya and Josh and even Drew. My mind was unable to focus on anything else. I would walk around my house, trying to convince myself to go back to life. The events that lead up to the book are hidden for nearly the entire book. And I finally just stopped caring what happened before and just started enjoying the ride.

I was, and am still, completely taken in by these characters. One thing that I love about this book is how each character has a poignant place in the story. Every person matters. Most people are so concerned about how other people perceive them that surface level is as far as they let people in.

Nastya tries so hard to stay separate. He calls her Sunshine, at first as a way to keep her at a distance as well. Nastya is dealing with a tragedy that is literally beyond words. She moves away from the scene of her torment to live with her aunt in a town two hours away. And she meets Josh and Drew. This is NOT a love triangle book. Though I came to love them both.

You're probably asking yourself how could someone possibly get so emotional about a book. All those characters, and I do mean all of them, are explicitely described as being gorgeous. It gets better and better with every read. Nastya is a twat and I felt zero empathy sympathy for her ordeal. I really liked the message this book sends. The two words it ended on? Breaking Nova. The use of symbolism comes at you in so many ways that your brain races to catch up to it.
