What I Think
The start of this book was sort of sad the family had to move from one side of the states to the other leaving their childhood home and everything and everyone they knew and where the memories were of their father who died not long ago. There was reasons why they had to move but their mother didn't tell them, well not until she had to.
It was a long drive for Layken who was taking in turns with her mother driving the U-Haul truck and the car. It was even longer because she didn't what to go but as all good books go, things happen, people are met, friendships and relationships are formed.
Colleen Hoover drags you into this book and keeps you there until the last word, it had me crying laughing. the poetry in this book was amazing loved every single piece but i do have to favourite ones which are of course Wills and Lakes, I don't think I have ever been so into a book that I forgot where I was when reading it until this one and I hope it keeps on going on to the next two books in this amazing trilogy.
I recommend this book and every other book written by Colleen Hoover And I'm also putting this book in my must reads list. I recommending this book to everyone even if you don't like the romance books you will love it anyway.
