His memory is failing, his grades are in a death spiral, and both Ade’s best friend and his shrink are begging him to stop before he kills himself. Ade knows he needs to straighten-out. Luckily, the stunning Vauxhall Rodolfo has just transferred to Mantlo and, as Ade has seen her in a vision two years previously, they’re going to fall in love. It’s just the motivation Ade needs to kick his habit. Only things are a bit more complicated. Vauxhall has an addiction of her own, and, after a a vision in which he sees Vauxhall’s close friend, Jimmy, drown while he looks on seemingly too wasted to move, Ade realizes that he must break the one rule he’s been told he can’t.
The pair must overcome their addictions and embrace their love for each other in order to do the impossible: change the future.”
Alright, I’ll go straight into it and say this is just like The Butterfly effect but even more messed up. Ade knocks himself unconscious just to see the future. He see’s the girl who he is suppose to fall in love with and waits for her. Vauxhall also has ad addiction of her own and see some really bad things. Ade must figure out who the mysterious stranger he see’s in his future before its too late.
I did not like this book as much as I wanted to. For me, everything in it was too much. Too mess up. I kept shaking my head and wondering, What the ??? I mean, some things made sense but it took a lot of paying attention in order to see the whole picture come together. I felt like Ade really needed some help, like mentally. Poor kid was busting up his head left and right. And Vauxhall? Don’t get me started on her. She was just as messed up as Ade was.
I did see the clearer picture a little more than half-way through the book. It took a while for the reader to gather all the information that was floating around. Some of it was not needed. Although I have to admit what Jimmy did was pretty clever.
There was lots of sex and drinking. And if you ask me, their love is messed up.
I give it 3 BITES!
