Product Description

Your past will always be part of you, but does it have to define your future? Or can you rewrite your story?

I want to explain it all to you. How this happened. How that summer – the summer I was 16 – made me the person I am today.

I want to share my memories with you: the happy memories are like sunbursts, sparkling on the sea. But then, like a current dragging me under, there's that summer of 1997.

The summer my life exploded.
The summer I had to grow up.
The summer you came into my life.

And so this is the story of you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it, loved it, loved it! 21 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have had Katy Regan's book How We Met in my Amazon Wishlist since it came out last year so when I heard another of her books was being published I had a choice of either reading that first or jumping straight in and reading The Story Of Us, of course after seeing the reviews and hearing so many good things, I chose The Story Of You. Although I don't have anything to compare this book to it has given me such high expectations for Katy's other books. It is amazing, the story, the writing, everything is just perfect.

This is such an amazing book! As soon as I finished the book (which was very hard to take as I didn't want it to end), I wanted to scream from the rooftops how good it was to make everybody read it, but I decided to post a review instead! There are so many different themes in this book which makes the story so intriguing and un-putdownable! I laughed and was close to tears a lot during reading this book! There are some quite upsetting themes in this book, the main ones being mental health issues and miscarriage, Katy has written these into the story so wonderfully that although you are sad it pulls you into the story even more.

I loved the characters in this book, they all felt so real and like you were in the story and actual friends with them. This happens because of how brilliant Katy has written the book, she has made the characters jump off the page and into your heart! You get completely sucked into this book right from the start, I was hooked after less than 10 pages! This is one of those books that all of your emotions go into and you feel very conversation and emotion that the characters feel. My favourite character was definitely Robyn, but I think you’re supposed to say that right?

When I received the press release for this book I didn't read all of it I read the beginning of it and thought, yep this is something I will like. Then the book arrived and I jumped right into it with an idea in my head of what was going to happen. I was wrong. This wasn't the happy reminiscing of a teenage romance that I was expecting. This was darker than I was expecting but gripping. There is an almost perfect mix of love and loss, sadness and joy.. and it just compels you to read more. So much so that I read this book cover to cover in less than a day. I could not put it down.

The Story of You is an emotional rollercoaster that keeps you on your toes.. never knowing if the next page will bring happiness or sadness. I loved how the story unfolded.. the mix between the here and now and what came before 16 years ago was perfect.
Katy Regan is a 'new to me author' and I can definitely see myself seeking out her other work in the near future

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Rarely do reviews but this book is fantastic I was sceptic at first as I haven't read any of Katys books so far but if this is anything to go by I can't wait to read more!
The story is gripping, flits between past and present but not in the confusing way most authors do and the story line is beautiful a perfect summer read!!!
I fell in love with this book and read it in a day it kept me awake till 3am it was just fabulous can't praise it enough
Try it for yourself you won't be disappointed :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally brilliant 16 July 2014
By Al
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is such an amazing book! I haven't even finished reading it yet and felt compelled to write a review. I have already laughed and cried in equal measure. All the characters are so real I feel that I've actually met them - it all feels like something a friend has recounted as a real life story - one that you're totally immersed in emotionally. Can't wait to finish it. This is Katy's best book ever. Totally brilliant.

I was really looking forward to this book after thoroughly enjoying Katy Regan's other books. I wasn't disappointed. I couldn't put it down and pretty much read from cover to end in 2 days! Another cracker of a book it deals brilliantly with the subject matter in a beautifully down to earth way. The prose is fantastically crafted and the characters totally believable. Another great book from the Author.

3.0 out of 5 stars It was alright... 9 Sep 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thought that this book had quite a long winded story line that at some points just annoyed me. I felt that the main character wasn't endearing enough and I just wanted her to get on with it! I also thought that it was all quite badly written and had terrible grammar throughout. Overall it was just sort of alright but I wouldn't read it again and I probably wouldn't recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Suz 12 Sep 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
A story of two people and how their lives entwine, how history can allow you to cloud your own future. It is a story of greatness, loneliness and life. Fantastically written in a way readers know what the characters are feeling and how the past haunts, although we don't know why, we can only guess. Devoured this is super speed as i couldn't put it down!!

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing book 14 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There was just something so breathe taking about Robyn! I was hooked this book from the first chapter. I definitely expected it to be a boring love story that I've read a thousand times but this was different. I even loved Graces presence to the book. really can't wait to read more of her book. Just Amazing.
