I was chuffed to bits that I won this book on Goodreads giveaways as I’ve seen it pop up on places like Goodreads and blogs for a while now. I actually won it mid-October last year and for whatever reason it’s been sitting on my shelf still waiting to be read. That’s not to say I’m super excited and intrigued to dip into it. It sounds like an unconventional romance with some cool twists. Also the cover is very striking and pleasing to the eye. This is definitely the next book I’m going to read and I’ll keep you informed if I like it.
Here’s a little summary from Goodreads to give you the gist of the book….
John Green meets Rainbow Rowell in this irresistible story of first love, broken hearts, and the golden seams that put them back together again.
“Henry Page has never been in love. He fancies himself a hopeless romantic, but the slo-mo, heart palpitating, can't-eat-can't-sleep kind of love that he's been hoping for just hasn't been in the cards for him—at least not yet. Instead, he's been happy to focus on his grades, on getting into a semi-decent college and finally becoming editor of his school newspaper. Then Grace Town walks into his first period class on the third Tuesday of senior year and he knows everything's about to change.
Grace isn't who Henry pictured as his dream girl—she walks with a cane, wears oversized boys' clothes, and rarely seems to shower. But when Grace and Henry are both chosen to edit the school paper, he quickly finds himself falling for her. It's obvious there's something broken about Grace, but it seems to make her even more beautiful to Henry, and he wants nothing more than to help her put the pieces back together again. And yet, this isn't your average story of boy meets girl. Krystal Sutherland's brilliant debut is equal parts wit and heartbreak, a potent reminder of the bittersweet bliss that is first love.”
