On My Bookshelf : Nobody But Us by Kristin Halbrook
Source: Me - haha. c:
Format: Kindle(this is the first book i've finished on my new Kindle, yay, haha!)
Pagecount: 272 Pages
Publication Date: January 29th, 2013
My Rating: 5 billion/5 Stars
Maybe I'm too late. Maybe Zoe's dad stole all her fifteen years and taught her to be scared. I'll undo it. Help her learn to be strong again, and brave. Not that I'm any kind of example, but we can learn together.
When the whole world is after you, sometimes it seems like you can't run fast enough.
Maybe it'll take Will years to come to terms with being abandoned. Maybe it'll take forever. I'll stay with him no matter how long it takes to prove that people don't always leave, don't always give up on you
Warning : this book will break your heart.
I started Nobody But Us thinking it would be a light romantic contemporary, where everything was light and happy.
By the first five pages, I realized this wasn't so.
I didn't- and still don't- like the main characters at all. I hated them - for some reason, I was still planning on giving it 4 stars when I was halfway through.
All this changed at the ending - this book broke my heart. I was crying at the end. But that is what makes this book so phenomenal - it's like The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. I hated him for that ending, I threw my book at the wall, but it ended up making the book so much better.
My review isn't very long, because it's hard to talk about this book without talking about the ending, but trust me on this one : go out and buy this book right now, even though it's horribly sad you will not regret it.
