the book was terrible, but because I wanted to spend my time on it If I had written the review right after finishing, I would ve given the book 3 stars as opposed to 4 I remember HATING it when I first finished But, having read it the second time around, I now know why I hated it so much We re all used to the happily ever afters, the young and tortured souls who are annoying at first but redeem themselves in the end The girl falls for the right boy and you get to read their happily ever after, with a couple of lame usually predictable roadblocks thrown in there That s what we all expect, right Well, Olivia Besse doesn t give us this I know what you re thinking, if she doesn t give us this then why the hell should I even bother reading this The answer to that is quite simple she gives us reality None of that sugar coated fairytale jargon I expected the fairytale ending in this book especially after the cliffhanger from the first book But, if we really take a minute to think of it, life is not like that at all Besse took a bold move, and wrote an honest and REAL story Besse offers a story of what it can often feel like to be a girl in a world full of images and unrealistic beliefs of what us women should be like strong, independent, successful, happy, skinny, beautiful, flawless This book really focuses on the effects living up to these unrealistic expectations can really be to a girl Elodie has no belief in herself, no confidence, no idea of her own self worth Instead, she strives for what she thinks she wants and this leaves her feeling empty, confused, lost, and unhappy In real life, we become so focused on what we think happiness looks like that we disregard when we are genuinely feeling happy It is for this reason that I have respect for Besse for writing the cold, hard truth for many of us This story is in my opinon one of growth, realisation, and a search for happiness underneath it all Many novels give us all of the above but so exaggerated perfect boyfriend with a perfect job, instant connections, overwhelming love and attraction, safety and the most supportive and perfect friends Most of that is what drags us in as readers we are subconsciously falling in love with this idea of perfection and happiness and if we can have all of that happen in the course of one book, then all the better right We like those happy feelings we get while we immerse ourselves in the book It s for that reason that I found it so annoying reading this book the first time I didn t get those feelings and instead I was immensely frustrated with this stupid girl she couldn t see that happiness was there all along It wasn t until reading it the second time that I realised I was no better REAL life isn t all black and white There are so many shades of grey that it does leave most of us confused and led in the wrong directions Some of us sacrifice our own happiness for that of others while others do so because of feelings of unworthiness So to me, this is a REAL book Would I have loved to see Elodie and Tyler 110% YES But I can appreciate what Olivia Besse was trying to do here she showed us an actual reality for some of us We all make mistakes We all get confused and sometimes live the lives we think we want and accept the love we think we deserve Sometimes we just have to take a step back and really love ourselves first stop being so hard on ourselves and just look for ourselves and what it is we want I think this was a turning point for Elodie, or at least I hope so I look forward to finally seeing Elodie HAPPY in the next book, because like all of you REAL girls out there she so deserves it.Summary SPOILER ALERT view spoiler In short, the plot of the story again centers on Elodie and her friends One of her best friends, Tatiana is getting married so we get to see deeper into the close relationships Elodie has built with her friends and all of their struggles with love, happiness, and confusion Elodie is still with James argh and she is trying to convince herself that she loves him Elodie is a very confused girl who just wants to love and be loved but can t see it when it s staring her in front of the face She settles for what she thinks she wants because she doesn t think she s worthy of the real thing Throughout the book, there were multiple mentions of others perceiving Elodie as sad and unhappy Tatiana mentions that Lo rarely smiles and that the smile she gives James is not the same happy smile she has around Tyler or her friends Heddi also realizes that Elodie is not genuinely happy and mentions this many times to her Heddi shares how Tyler s first impression of Elodie was that she was miserable and unhappy but he still saw past that to her beauty At one point, Elodie even thinks to herself that she had honestly never felt so empty in her entire life even though she had the life that most girls her age would kill for Elodie admits several times that she still has feelings for Tyler but she never accepts this She continuously tells herself that she is unworthy of his love and that he can t possibly still want her after what she did to him Like most of us, she is an insecure little girl who, deep down, doesn t believe she is worthy of true love or genuine happiness She downplays the good things in life and up plays the fake happiness She doesn t know what she actually wants because she is so focused on what she thinks she wants what she thinks she deserves hide spoilerYou just need to stop worrying so much and learn to embrace everything that comes your way
