This was such a profound and poignant read... but it was a bit of a downer, if I'm being honest.
I'm all pumped for the summer, just finished exams and ready to read as much as I want and... this book gets me all depressed! I mean, it shows talented writing for the author to make me feel just as grieved and depressed as the protagonist feels but... I just wish I didn't feel so depressed afterwards.
This story follows Griffin who has just lost his first love, Theo, to a drowning accident. He begins to bond more with who was Theo's current boyfriend but things get super complicated.
This book gave me The Rest of Us Just Live Here vibes but that may be just because I've recently just read that.
I've always wanted to read an Adam Silvera book- More happy Than Not being the book I've wanted to read the most- and I can safely say that I will read more of his in the future.
SPOILERS AHEAD- SPOILERS AHEAD- SPOILERS AHEAD- SPOILERS AHEAD- SPOILERS AHEAD
I really liked being able to see the 'History' as well as the present in this book. It made everything so much more heart-breaking as we got to see Griffin and Theo's relationship start and end completely. They were always so cute together and it had me totally ship them.
I got The Rest of Us Just Live Here vibes simply because of the gay couples, the wrong person being endgame for Theo (!!!) and the elements of OCD throughout.
