WOOOOOW! This book was so good! I stayed up until 3am reading this one, I just couldn’t put it down!
So onto the plot: Our heroine, Lily Abbott, is bored one day during her Chemistry class. When her teacher catches her not paying attention, he allows her one sheet of paper for chemistry notes only, to hand in after class. Still bored, Lily ends up writing the lyrics to her favourite song on the desk…only to find the rest of the lyrics filled in the next day. Soon, Lily and her new pen pal are sharing more personal letters and growing closer. But who is this mystery pen pal that she’s slowly falling for?
The romance was so swoon worthy! I’ll admit, I pretty much knew who Lily’s “mystery” pen pal was from the start, but it didn’t ruin the story for me at all, it just made it more fun seeing Lily find out who it was for herself. Lily and her pen pal were so adorable! Every time they would write or speak to each other I had the biggest smile on my face and I couldn’t wait until the end when they realised they were perfect for each other!
I also really loved Lily’s family! There was so much chaos but they all really cared about each other. I especially loved her little brothers, they were so cute! Lily herself was a fantastic heroine. She was down-to-earth, caring, and hilarious! I loved the fact that she bought her clothes from a thrift shop and, despite what others would say, she always wore her outfit with pride. Lily’s friend, Isabel, was awesome! She was always trying to set Lily up with someone (ok, that was kind of annoying after a while) but she was truly a great friend who wanted the best for Lily. I also loved their little game they played every morning where, as a greeting, they would have to say the last thing they thought about before going to bed the night before, such a cool, funny idea!
Overall, this book was amazing and I recommend it to everyone! This is my second Kasie West book that I’ve read (the first being, The Distance Between Us, which I loved!) and I’m kicking myself that I haven’t read more! Well, I’m off to buy every Kasie West book there is, until next time…
