I received this book for free from the author or publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I don’t even know where to begin to write this review. This book absolutely wrecked me. Every once in a while, I need a book to make me cry, to make me feel, to break my heart. I seek them out. I knew going into this that I was going to ugly cry. I didn’t know that it would stay with me for two weeks and put me in a major book funk. I haven’t been able to fully immerse myself in anything since I finished this.
The love story between Poppy and Rune is absolutely and perfectly EPIC! As much as their story is tragic and heartbreaking, their love is so innocent and so pure, nothing can possibly compare to it. (And my heart almost burst) I don’t do spoilers, and the author has specifically asked for no spoilers to given in reviews, so I can only tell you how it made me feel. Yes it will break your heart and leave you a sobbing mess, but for the way things had to end, it was beautiful and perfect. I have been raving and insisting to anyone who will listen that they need to read this book asap! Yes, this is YA, but the writing is stellar and there are real life adult issues that are dealt with.
This book will stay with you for a very long time, and every time you think of it you will feel that little lump in your throat and find yourself choking back tears.
10 ugly cry stars and two boxes of tissues.
