Signed, sealed, delivered…
While spacing out in chemistry class, Lily scribbles some of her favorite song lyrics onto her desk. The next day, she finds that someone has continued the lyrics on the desk and added a message to her. Intrigue!
Soon, Lily and her anonymous pen pal are exchanging full-on letters—sharing secrets, recommending bands, and opening up to each other. Lily realizes she’s kind of falling for this letter writer. Only, who is he? As Lily attempts to unravel the mystery and juggle school, friends, crushes, and her crazy family, she discovers that matters of the heart can’t always be spelled out…
As one of the very few young adult contemporary author's that I still auto-buy and read without hesitation, Kasie West never disappoints.
With lovable characters, a fun plot line, and a sweet romance that is bound to make you smile and melt your insides from the warmth of it, her stories are always a hit and ones I count on to put me in a good mood and leave me smiling after putting them down.
Riddled with witty one liners and laugh out loud moments as well as those sweet ones not only between Lily and her pen pal but her family and best friend as well, this really was the perfect summer read to escape and get away for just a little while. I devoured this in one sitting and was so glad that I once again took the time to bask in West's great writing and easy loving characters.
