Their eyes were very full because they had seen many things but their lips could not be opened to speak of what they had seen An intriguing concept but uneventful story Although I greatly appreciate the uniue narrative and voice of the protagonist Alice I didn t find the plot particularly engaging The idea of the romance is sweet but the poise made it difficult to fully grasp the progression of their budding feelings I m afraid I just wanted from the plot and characters and couldn t help feeling a pang of disappointment by the time I finished the novel The writing is a double edge sword On one hand the writing is gorgeous The decision Millard made to narrate this story through the perspective of Alice a fifteen year old girl who has suffered severe brain trauma was a risk Whether or not this leap of faith paid off is entirely up to the reader At times the writing is enchanting but the constant jumps between the broken up paragraphs verse and traditional poise in Manny s perspective made it difficult to follow the story as a whole It s a sweet story and I did like the themes throughout I have a huge soft spot for novels that revolve around emotional plots The juxtaposition of Alice s injury with Manny s PTSD is so heartbreaking but nicely executed As I mentioned earlier I just wish I could ve had from this book Overall it s still a neat story and I m sure there are many readers who will greatly enjoy it I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest reviewBlog Instagram Twitter Bloglovin
