“…sometimes you just gotta jump, and then make your parachute on the way down.”
Well, anyone that follows me knows that I love a tear jerker and this one succeeded on very many levels. Wow, this was one emotional book, yet so uplifting all the same. There are many messages contained within these pages, messages that will make you look at life differently, look at yourself differently and look at others differently. Life is what you make it and there is always that special someone for everyone, no matter when you meet or how long you have together, their presence will stay with you forever, just like this book will stay with me forever.
“Hi. My name is Cooper Nichols, and I am absolutely swimming in love with a girl named Summer Johnson.”
Seth King can write, I am still dumbfounded that this was written by a twenty-five year old, the writing is so mature yet youth shines through, the writing is moving and captivating, yet humorous and funny, in short, this book was perfectly balanced. I highlighted so much of this book, haunting yet beautiful words that together made me melt, swoon, cry, laugh and every other possible conceivable emotion in between. In short, it was just amazingly poetic.
Summer is broken on the inside and the outside, yet she doesn’t let her health and her scars alter her lust for life. Even though she has lived a really sheltered life through health and over protective parents, she hasn’t lost her snark and her sass or lost that beautiful person underneath. Like any girl her age she wants to experience life, she wants to make the most of the hand that life dealt her and the one thing that she feels she has missed the most is love.Read more ›
The love that is written in this book is so real. The descriptions of such a beautiful connection between Summer and Cooper, I've experienced them, I continue to experience them, I can relate. And Cooper, what an absolute dream x The sorrow, grief, happiness, joy, beauty, frustration, just all of it, was written with truth and honesty and immensity of feeling. I began highlighting quotes all over this book. I even made a few teasers as I felt compelled to put images to the words I was soaking up.
As I've mentioned, the ending broke my heart. I read until 2:30am finishing up and was torn apart. I was holding out for a different outcome as I'm sure most were, yet the ending again was the making of this book. It definitely deserves all the five stars I'm giving it, and then some. This book just made me feel... good, bad and ugly throughout. Although it was hard going, I loved this book.
If I'm honest, I wasn't sure about this book at first. I found the sentences long and somewhat ramblish, the dialogue was excessive at times and I felt myself pushing away from a story that I knew was going to likely depress me in ways that I wasn't ready to acknowledge, but then I realised that I was looking at this in the wrong way. I am that Facebook freak! I am the girl with the pretty ring and the house in the country, and all those things that Summer despised, but what made Summer unique. Her outlook on life may have been jaded and forlorn due to her disability, and her last wish to fall in love may even have been cliche and selfish to others, I just couldn't deny the bigger picture here...
This is a story about us.
The fault of man and our twisted coping mechanisms when it comes to all things 'different.'
This isn't just a love story that spans three months over one Floridian summer, but a real eye opening, thought-provoking tale of what it must feel like to be swimming against a tide, when the one to pull you from the depths is the one you are destined to destroy. But I couldn't blame our heroine for any of it, because I was so proud of her for taking that final leap.
Cooper, our hero is no stranger to strife, this is where he really comes into his own. He seemed older than his peers, a little mysterious in his ways, and a true book hero in every sense of the word.Read more ›
