Una luminosa mattina di fine estate, un ragazzo e una ragazza s'incontrano all'università, a New York, e s'innamorano. Sembra l'inizio di una storia come tante, ma quel giorno è l'11 settembre 2001 e, mentre la città viene avvolta da un sudario di polvere e detriti, Gabe e Lucy si baciano e si scambiano una promessa. E due vite si fondono in un unico destino.
Tredici anni dopo, Lucy è a un bivio. E sente la necessità di ripercorrere con Gabe le tappe fondamentali della loro relazione, segnata da scelte che li hanno condotti lungo strade diverse, lungo vite diverse. Scelte che tuttavia non hanno mai reciso il legame profondo che li ha uniti per tutti quegli anni...
Ho scritto questo romanzo pensando al mio primo amore. Spero che, leggendolo, possiate rivivere il vostro.

If you’re anything like me—a lover of love, believer in fate or a sentimental dreamer—drop everything and read this book . . . now . I had an inkling this was going to be something special when I picked it up, but I had no idea just how hard this story would tug on my heart or how emotionally investe Leggi tutto
I don't know if this is going to be funny. Gasp! is your reaction, I presume. I know. Without fail, no matter what, I’m funny. That’s the Emma Guarantee: Five stars or one, hilarity ensues™. But not this time, maybe. https://emmareadstoomuch.wordpress.co... (Update from later: I ended up writing the m Leggi tutto
I'm really struggling with where to begin with this book. Sometimes I wonder if its worse if a book is offensive or if its just totally forgettable. At least when something is offensive its inspiring some sort of emotional reaction out of me. Its asking me to think about what it is I'm finding offen Leggi tutto
‘’The world felt like it was cracking in pieces, like we’d gone through a shattered mirror into the fractured place inside, where nothing made sense, where our shields were down, our walls broken. In that place, there wasn't any reason to say no.’’ This book was quite a departure from what I usu Leggi tutto
My heart is broken. I am blown away and broken. I don't know how to review this, so I'm going to ramble for a bit. Firstly, I want to thank Putnam Books for sending me a review copy. I'm so appreciative! Secondly, if there's one thing that I took away from this story is to follow your heart. To fully Leggi tutto

"Love does that. It makes you feel infinite and invincible, like the whole world is open to you, anything is achievable, and each day will be filled with wonder. Maybe it's the act of opening yourself up, letting someone else in—or maybe it's the act of caring so deeply about another person that it Leggi tutto
Why is 5 stars the limit??!! OMG!!! I LOVED, loved this freaking book!!! The entire time I was reading, I had a sense of foreboding. The style in which it is told felt like a confession and immediately I was apprehensive. Sigh. Lovely. My poor tear-ducts. Lol "Love does that. It makes you feel infini Leggi tutto
Fate! Decisions! Regrets! I adore dual narrations, but this is in single POV, told by the heroine, Lucy, and is extremely well written. The storyline is told in the form of what I would call a diary with the most mysterious undertones as she recounts past events. I found myself enthralled trying to f Leggi tutto
Emotionally manipulative drivel. Akin to a poor man's Nicholas Sparks but with even less heart! Trite. Dull. Cliches at every turn and a laughably predictable ending which is supposed to be heart breaking and beautiful etc etc but my eyes bled rather than wept! (Figuratively speaking of course) I sen Leggi tutto
