This is one of those books that only covers one day. But that's ok by me because I can relate to having one day that changes everything in your life. I didn't need the story to cover more than a day, but I needed more of a story. It all went too fast for me!! My book says 236 pages, but it felt like 100.
This is a hard review to write because I really did like this book, but then I just wanted more from it!
The love story was super cute, but I wanted more personality from Oliver. What was so likable about him anyhow? The family stuff was complicated and should remain complicated, not all neatly fixed after one day. Sorry but I don't think that's very realistic. Also I've realized that I don't care for third person. I don't feel as connected to the characters when it's written like that. The writing in this book is beautiful though!!!
I really think that the 24 hour time span of the book made the book. I think it added to the whole idea of fate and that any one decision could change your life. I liked the complexity of Hadley. She had anxiety problems and family issues, but she was still just a girl that wanted a boy to like her.
Definitely a book you could read in a day... recommended to anyone who loves a good 'it must be fate' love story. Or anyone who just likes to read words that are written beautifully!
How I got this book: Library
