You know that right? Don’t ever let another person tell you you’re not If I’ve learned anything from my parents it’s that all it takes is the smallest percentage and the will to stare the rest of America right in the face You’re Black” So while it’s not going to a favorite of mine it did make me think and it’s going to stay with me for a while The story was good I just felt like the execution needed work Basically I do recommend this even though I’m so torn about it I read an advanced copy of this title The uote was taken from an ARC and is subject to change upon publicationBlog | Instagram | Twitter

Home and Away Ly and forgiveness really mean and that her answers don’t come without a fee An artsy bisexual boy from the Valley could help her find them but only if she stops fighting who she is beyond the color of her ski I received an ARC of this thank you so much to Page Street Publishing but it didn't change my opinion at allI highs and lows with this novel and I'm not sure what to do with myself There were things that I really liked but there were parts that had me frustrated I even thought about bringing out my Elsa rating at some points because I felt so conflicted about it Elsa is my rating for books that I literally cannot figure out a proper crown rating because I can never figure out my true feelings for this ice ueenDisney princess? SEE IDK WHAT TO EVEN CALL HERThere was a lot to like about this novel I think the best part about it was its messiness with its characters their actions and the situation that they're in There is no right way to react when your world has been literally turned upside down the way that Tasia's is and a lot of the things that happened felt SO real and relatable There were moments that I was frustrated with things that Tasia was doing but also like I got it Tasia's world is rocked and even if she did things I wouldn't have done I still GOT them She's angry and frustrated and you could just feel her pain through the pages Everyone in this book felt like a person that was out in the real world and could connect with Montgomery truly had a talent with bringing the real life messiness that would come with the secret and not just tidying everything up with the rainbow and unicorn haze that YA does sometimes I really loved thatI did like our cast of characters for the most part as well Each was dynamic different and you could always pinpoint who was who I really liked Slim Tasia's best friend and Tristan Tasia's brother They were stars for me for this novel Tasia was a pretty good narrator as well Her voice shines through with every page and I did feel for her uite a bit Even when I got frustrated with her actions or the story I still rooted for her because I was invested in her storyMontgomery's writing was pretty good It's pretty easy to read I still felt compelled to finish the story There was never really a big draw with the story with me so I was able to set it down and not want to pick it back up for a while One of the biggest issues for me was the pacing At times I felt like decisions were reached with a very short amount of times Like Tasia's decision to move in with Merrick was SO uick I understand she needed to get away from her family but I feel like she maybe should have had an internal conversation about it or a few pages of thinking it over before it was reached Instead the truth came out and next thing I know she's moving in with Merrick I mean like this girl here would be having paranoid delusions for like 20 pages before every moving in with someone so I wanted like at least a page The romance with Kai came fast and furious as well Some other plot lines were picked up and dropped off as well We could go long periods of time without talking about Tasia's football playing and her search for the person that sent her the box and it didn't seem to follow a flow as much as I wanted to since I would forget about certain thingsAs I mentioned before the romance between Kai and Tasia was an interesting one as well Like there were a lot of leaps in this romance that didn't uite work for me I needed a lot build up for them Like their third or fourth time interacting with each other after a few paragraphs it's already getting way too deep And then they sped so uickly into the gfbf department that I literally blinked and found them together And then they were dropping I love you's SO uickly I was flustered because I didn't uite see where they came together so so uickly?? Instalove for sure And I felt no chemistry at alllllllllllllll between them? I mean they had cute moments but there was nothing that really was like YESSSSSSS SHIPS FEELS SWOONS It was like eh? I think part of this could be because Kai is technically her adopted uncle? He's her age and such and she's never known this part of the family but like the moment I see part of the family feels are instantly gone for me? You will never be seeing this girl into the whole I'm in love with my stepbrother plot lines Wattpad forever broke me on that And one of my last issues was some of the characters' actions The biggest issue that I had was Tasia's and Kai's friend group Like I didn't get them? Everyone always warns her that Kai will hurt her and mess up and like I don't usually talk about my friends this way??? Two of them are in love with Kai and intensely upsetjealous over their relationship ending They continuously are jerks to Tasia and actively try to get with Kai and Tasia is still mostly good with them? LIKE WHY And she struggles allllllllllll the time with forgiveness and talking with her family but once she solves the big mystery of the box it's a very hasty forgiveness moment which I didn't fully getI do like the ending uite a bit It wasn't a big nice happy HEA There were a lot of things that were uite open ended and I think Montgomery did a wonderful job with showcasing just what real life is like You're not just going to get a perfect little bow to fix up the problems It felt very hopeful and like such a fitting end Also girl football players so much epicness Tasia had a lot of strength in this novel mental emotional and physical and this was just another way to showcase it I loved reading how fierce she was in her love of the sportOverall this book had a lot of ups and downs for me but I loved the realness of it and the way Montgomery drew me I had some issues with the romance and the pacing but I did really enjoy the cast of characters and the plot I'm going to put an end to this long review now so 3 crowns and a Belle rating
