Aurora is entering her senior year and everything around her seems to be falling apart. Her best friend has joined the cool crowd and she struggles to grapple with the loss. But when tragedy strikes, Aurora realizes what loss is really all about and how moving on becomes a fight of the will, mind and heart.
I though this book was beautiful. Simply Beautiful. I loved how the main character, Aurora was so defined by the life that she created around her. After many hurtful changes, Aurora starts to see things differently. Aurora is a girl who loved to live in her safe little bubble. She wakes up everyday and things go the same. Sometimes living in a bubble is not good. We need to get out and get a change. For Aurora, changes means bad things. I love that the reader can see and feel Aurora go through these changes.
What got me about this book is the change in Aurora. After many changes, Aurora starts to see its not her friends or school, or thing that defines who she is, its her. The reader gets to see Aurora come into her own self and see herself clearly. At times, it may seems that Aurora is selfish, but Aurora is growing and learning. Some lessons in life are hard to learn. And sometimes, we have to learn them the hard way.
I especially loved the love interests in this book. I adored watching Aurora not only see him with her heart for the first time, but also fall in love. Their love is so simplistic and pure that is just lovely. As the reader, you see how he adores her by waiting for her to see herself. He gave her such great strength in who she is that it leaves your heart breaking.
This book is a wonderful read. I think that any teenage girl can relate to this book because it carries such a great lesson we all need to know. We are undefined. We ourselves, define ourselves and who we are. It doesn’t matter about friends, money, or materialistic items.What only matters is how you see yourself.
I give it 4 BITES!
