REVIEW: So I didn’t expect to love this book as much as I did. This was such a real, heartfelt love story, one that even I would see myself going through. We meet Lily a hopeful song writer who keeps under the social radar, she has a big family, and a wonderful best friend Isabel (whom I just love). I really related to Lily, I grew up with a big family and never had privacy, she finds herself frustrated because she can’t find time to do what she loves without interruptions.

One day while she’s daydreaming in chemistry class because let’s face it.. we have all been there, she finds herself writing lyrics of one of her favorite songs on her desk.. only to come back the next day and notice someone had continued the lyrics. She begins writing notes back and forth with a mysterious pen pal. They have so much in common, they feel comfortable sharing even the deepest feelings with each other.

All at the same time we meet Cade, a jerk who always seems to appear at the wrong time and say the wrong things. Soon it’s obvious that Lily and Cade do not have the best friendship out there, seems like they can’t stand each other most of the time. Soon some events cause Cade and Lily to spend more and more time together. But, is it possible to fall for someone who you don’t get along with? We learn that things aren’t always the way they appear. Solve the pen pal mystery by reading this book!

This is such a worthwhile read. Have you read it? What did you think? Send me a message! ❤️Ellie RG
