Summary from Goodreads:
Years ago, Rachel had a crush on Henry Jones. The day before she moved away, she tucked a love letter into his favorite book in his family’s bookshop. She waited. But Henry never came.
Now Rachel has returned to the city—and to the bookshop—to work alongside the boy she’d rather not see, if at all possible, for the rest of her life. But Rachel needs the distraction. Her brother drowned months ago, and she can’t feel anything anymore.
As Henry and Rachel work side by side—surrounded by books, watching love stories unfold, exchanging letters between the pages—they find hope in each other. Because life may be uncontrollable, even unbearable sometimes. But it’s possible that words, and love, and second chances are enough.
My Opinions (SPOILER FREE):
I really really enjoyed this story a lot. I thought it was such a beautiful and unique story. It was so unlike any other YA contemporary that I’ve read because it was just so touching and beautiful and made me feel so many feelings. It was also a unique story, and not like any other plot that I’ve heard or read about.
This is overall a very adorable, yet sad story. There were lots of great quotes and hidden meanings that really touched my heart.
The setting and characters were just everything to me. It was such a well written story with beautiful writing and I just fell in love with the whole thing.
I was highly anticipating this book and it most definitely did not disappoint me.
