Book Review:
There are no words to describe how much I loved this book! The authors writing is incredible and captivating, you simply feel compelled to carry on reading!
Throughout the book we are shown what first love is all about and how the truth may never come out!
Whether guilty or not I'll let readers decide but I know through the entire book I judged characters on being the guilty party when they weren't. I am definitely adding the authors other novels to my TBR list.
I'm so wanting to re-read You Against Me again as I cannot get over how breathtaking it is. I'm hoping there will be a second book following up from this... as I was sort of disappointed with the ending. :( But all in all it's a fantastic read!
Have you read You Against Me? What did you think?
