I don’t typically read a lot of novellas or short stories because I enjoy getting attached to the characters in books and sticking with them for a longer period of time than about 30-50 pages. But I thought this sounded cute, and I thought that maybe I should break out of my usual routine and try something different.
I’m pretty glad I did.
This book is a short novella that tells the tale of a secretive, closed off teenager and the girl that falls for him. He keeps secrets. She asks too many questions. He’s not interested in her, but her interest in him could just be enough to change his mind. Although this is quite short, it has a powerful story behind it, of a young man reluctant to fall in love, and a girl who tries to change his mind and help him feel close to someone.
I wish this had been longer…I would have loved more details and background about the characters, and Amber Knight’s writing flows nicely and is definitely something I would enjoy reading more of.
Note: I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
