I loved this book. I don't know exactly why, but it's just really amazing. I think I loved that we follow her through most of her life.
Gretchen and Chase are amazing!!! (P.S. my name is Gretchen, so.....there's that LOL) Gretchen hasn't had the easiest of lives, but she's been loved by her grandparents and has a couple of really great friends.
Chase is the boy she's always loved. Since her first meeting running into him, literally, he’s the boy that she compares all others to. He's been there for her in every way possible. Quietly holding her when she's upset, and forcing her back to school. He's made sure she has her favorite coffee and he's visited her Grandma. He postponed his dreams to make hers a reality. He is seriously one of a kind!!!
I loved, loved, loved this book!! It's definitely a must-read!
“What was your peach and pit of your day, Chase?”
“My what?” He looks down at me curiously.
Chase is six-foot-three to my five-foot-three.
“Your peach, the good part of your day. And every peach has a pit, a bad part. Or maybe a part of your day you wish went differently. But the peach is the good part. I want to know what your peach for the day was.”
He looks out to the ocean for what feels like eternity but is probably less than twenty seconds.
My heartbeat skips. It feels like something is about to happen.
“My pit is I wish I got here earlier.” He looks at me, taking his hands from his pockets as he reaches over and pulls my hood up. His hands drop from my face but his eyes stay on me, catching every reaction to him. “And my peach, that’s easy, G. Right now, with you.”
