For as long as she can remember, Wren Gray’s goal has been to please her parents. But as high school graduation nears, so does an uncomfortable realization: Pleasing her parents once overlapped with pleasing herself, but now... not so much. Wren needs to honor her own desires, but how can she if she doesn’t even know what they are?

Charlie Parker, on the other hand, is painfully aware of his heart’s desire. A gentle boy with a troubled past, Charlie has loved Wren since the day he first saw her. But a girl like Wren would never fall for a guy like Charlie—at least not the sort of guy Charlie believes himself to be.

And yet certain things are written in the stars. And in the summer after high school, Wren and Charlie’s souls will collide. But souls are complicated, as are the bodies that house them...

Sexy, romantic, and oh-so-true to life, this is an unforgettable look at first love from one of young adult fiction’s greatest writers.

When I picked up this book, I honestly thought I was in for a mushy romantic story. That is not the case. Instead, this book is further than love.

Plot: Two seniors getting ready to graduate find each other in what is supposed to be the best moments of their lives. This plot starts off slow then begins to moves fast with drama in the family and drama between friends. It riled up my emotions enough to make me put the book down since so much was coming at me at one time. I didn’t particularly like the decisions the characters were making.

Love: I really think that this love is all about getting your priorities straight. You see, I’ve been in this kind of relationship. Where the guy is ALWAYS picking up after someone else’s mess. At first, it’s noble and nice, but after awhile it gets old and tiring. So being in Wren’s shoes is something familiar to me.  I get her feelings. And when that guy is always going after to help someone else… well you can’t help but think what if there is something between them, it drives you crazy. Charlie is struggling as well. He wants to be with Wren but he is too soft. He can’t say no and trusts the wrong people. He has one of those moments where he has to think what HE wants to do and not what everyone else wants.

Drama/Ending: After all the crazy back and forth drama between Charlie and Wren, decisions are FINALLY made! I’m happy with the way that it ended, just not happy that I got dragged through all of the unnecessary drama had someone set their priorities straight. If you truly love someone, then you will stop letting other people control your actions.

This story is one that is not easy. The reader is faced with lots of emotional drama and decisions that in the end will affect the outcome of relationship. Lies and half-told truths do not make for a good relationship. The Infinite Moment Of Us is painful romance that must fight for its love. It all boils down to what you want. The Infinite Moment Of Us is good.

I give it 3 BITES!


Happy Reading!

    Not sure this one is for me Savy, I think all the unnecessary drama you mention will be problematic for me. I know I’ll want Charlie to just spit his feelings out so he and Wren can deal with them already! Lovely review though:)

    I love Lauren Myracle and will read it for that reason, but I have heard a lot of mixed things about this one so my expectations won’t be so high.

  3. Hm… actually don’t think this one is for me. Sounds like a lot of unnecessary drama, but I do like that it also seems like there is growth. Oh that actually puts me on the fence. Still, it does sound like a decent read.

    Yeah I have seen that kind of relationship where the boy is there to pick up the pieces a million times. Nothing new. But it sounds like a really profound story, though. Glad you liked it despite it not being mind blowing.

  5. Ah man. I keep forgetting that I got this from NetGalley and need to review it. I’m not so sure I want to, now! I really do not like lots of drama, especially if it’s continuously back and forth the majority of the time. Also, Wren sounds like she would get irritating if she never made the right decisions.
