This Book Will Not Disappoint!
This was my first Colleen Hoover read and I was blown away! I listened to it and literally did not want to stop to do life because I wanted to know what was going to happen to these magical characters I fell in love with! And the narrator was PERFECT! Merit has an unusual family life. She lives in an old church with her father and step-mother, as well as her mother who lives in the basement and will not come out. Other characters include Merit's twin sister, her older brother, a younger brother, an uncle by marriage who comes along unexpectedly, and Merit's love interest, whom she believes to be her twin's boyfriend. Merit finds herself in the throes of depression and the story comes to a head when she writes a heartfelt letter after which she attempts to remove herself from her reality. Each character is so deliciously developed that you will feel that they are your personal friends. The reader will quickly become invested in the story which has a superb ending. I cannot wait to read more by Colleen Hoover, and luckily I discovered there is quite a collection to choose from!

Ok I have to be honest and admit this is not my favorite CoHo book but.... that doesn't mean I hated it! This book for me was like wine, the longer it sits with me the more I liked it. I also think the more I discuss it with friends the more I am finding I enjoyed it too. I really found it hard to connect with because it had too many strange things. I love a book with an odd character or two but honestly EVERY character in this book was odd. I did laugh a lot and I really enjoyed some of the quotes and saying in this book too. I liked what I got from this story and loved the ending. I always love a good guys in stories so Sagan was my favorite character. He was strong considering the things he had going on in his life and he wasn't dysfunctional. I was very impressed at the changes the characters made once they actually started seeing each other and noticing what was going on in each others lives. These characters grew so much in just the last few chapters of this book.
The narration was great, I love her in all the books I've listened to her narrate and I love how well she gives each characters their own voice.
