Age is just a number.
Just like he’s just a boy and I’m just a girl.
Except that’s not true, is it?
Because fifteen may be a number, but it’s bigger than that. Bigger than us.
It’s a number that separates us.
An excuse that keeps us apart.
But I’m not willing to give in until I get what I want.
After all, how many other girls can bring a grown man to his knees with one little smile?
I first want to start out by saying that I didn’t NOT like this book. I am going to do my best at explaining all of that just very briefly because I don’t feel like this book should have to have a lot of negativity.
The main thing I did not like about this entire story was the length of it. I’m never afraid to read a long book. I was not intimidated by the size of this story at all. 500 pages is a breeze for me. BUT…I just felt like it should have been 200 pages shorter. I really liked the author’s writing and the trope didn’t bother me (although I DO feel like if the author was going to be so explicit about it, the age gap should have been way less than what it was but I have read worse) but there was a lot of excessive scenes and internal dialogue that was just not needed. And when I say that, I don’t think I am exaggerating one bit.
Tropes like this story teeter on two different edges. People will know what this book is about, read it, and still hate it. Even though they are very much aware of the trope. I don’t think that is fair so I think that is why I really wanted to clarify that that WASN’T the reason I didn’t LOVE the book. I think book contained great writing and characters that had an immense amount of depth and feelings but the book as a whole was just too long.
