I always seek out books that hurt me, unfortunately not many that can leave a lasting impression. This book is one of the few that did. I ugly dried this one 😭 lol!
I have specific weakness when it comes to elements in books that could hurt me deeper than an average sad book. When it comes to children, even though I hate them in real life 😆, when they are hurt in book, for me the knife not only stabbed, but also twisted repeatedly. God, even reading the author’s note made me cry like a baby 😥. Ok, I better stop making myself look like a crybaby haha!
★ Book Details ★
Our lives are a collection of moments. Some utterly painful and full of yesterday’s hurts. Some beautifully hopeful and full of tomorrow’s promises.
I’ve had many moments in my lifetime, moments that changed me, challenged me. Moments that scared me and engulfed me. However, the biggest ones—the most heartbreaking and breathtaking ones—all included him.
I was ten years old when I lost my voice. A piece of me was stolen away, and the only person who could truly hear my silence was Brooks Griffin. He was the light during my dark days, the promise of tomorrow, until tragedy found him. Tragedy that eventually drowned him in a sea of memories.
This is the story of a boy and girl who loved each other, but didn’t love themselves. A story of life and death. Of love and broken promises.
