The Infinite Moment of Us by Lauren Myracle | Book Review

The Infinite Moment of Us by Lauren Myracle 

Reading Group Rating: High School

Personal Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars

Given Summary: For eighteen years, Wren Gray has been the model daughter -- which in her family means all As, zero boyfriends, and early acceptance into a pre-med program.  But as graduation nears, Wren can no longer tell if her parents' ideas about her future align with her own.  She knows she 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, knows exactly what he wants.  A gentle boy with a troubled past, Charlie has loved Wren since the first day he saw her.  But a girl like Wren would never fall for a boy like him -- at least not the sort of guy Charlie believes himself to be.  And yet, certain things are written in the stars...

With all the sweetness -- and steaminess -- of first romance, this gorgeous novel explores that time between high school and college when life seems to be just beginning, and everything -- including true love -- is impossible.

Cover: The cover of this novel is really cool.  It doesn't really have a deeper meaning like some other covers (like Sublime or Scorched) but I really like it.  It's nighttime, which I guess the characters do spend a lot of time together at night, but it's also just their silhouettes which I like as I'm not a huge fan of having real people on the covers of books.  However, it also has circles covering it and I have no idea why, but I think it adds a nice element to the cover. 

My Review:  This story is really good.  The reason I gave it 4 Stars versus 5 is simply that although I enjoyed it a lot I don't think it's going to be one of those books I go back and reread over and over again.  I liked this book because it was a little different than the teen romance books I usually read.  I don't think I've ever read a book about a foster child and with that comes a very complex character.  I loved Charlie, he is such a sweetheart.  And as Wren says in the book, he is a hero who helped the people around him whenever he can rather than going searching for people to help.  I liked that he was always there and that he was the kind of friend who once he's in your life, he stays.  Even if he doesn't really want to.  His and Wren's romance was adorable throughout the entire story.  It was clear that they both truly cared about each other.  Also, I think Wren's life at home is something a lot of people can relate to.  Our parents always want the best for us, but sometimes they use us to redo their lives and at some point we have to stand up to them and tell them what we want.  Overall, this story was very real and I think anyone can relate to some aspect of it.

Smile!  I'll talk to you soon!xxx
