My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I don’t often read Young Adult, mostly because ‘teen drama’ is so long ago in my own past I find it exhausting to think about what I was like as an 18 and 19-year-old and don’t really want to consider it anymore!
However, I made an exception for this one as it was connected to the Hearts & Health series which I’ve enjoyed and because it was about Beau and Wade.
And I have to say, I enjoyed the vast majority of it and it dealt sympathetically with some quite serious subjects and kept a realistic tone throughout.
Both Beau and Wade are believable characters, they act their ages and aren’t some uber teenagers who know every thing and have shedloads of stuff and things.
Wade’s fears were justified and understandable, as was his behaviour, even if it was uncomfortable to consider that level of internalized pain and Beau really was the perfect foil.
I’m looking forward to finding out more about Dr Casper in the next one and it was nice to catch up with Trent & Xavier and Paul & Zane briefly.
