Morgan Grant and her sixteen-year-old daughter, Clara, would like nothing more than to be nothing alike.
Morgan is determined to prevent her daughter from making the same mistakes she did. By getting pregnant and married way too young, Morgan put her own dreams on hold. Clara doesn’t want to follow in her mother’s footsteps. Her predictable mother doesn’t have a spontaneous bone in her body.
With warring personalities and conflicting goals, Morgan and Clara find it increasingly difficult to coexist. The only person who can bring peace to the household is Chris—Morgan’s husband, Clara’s father, and the family anchor. But that peace is shattered when Chris is involved in a tragic and questionable accident. The heartbreaking and long-lasting consequences will reach far beyond just Morgan and Clara.
While struggling to rebuild everything that crashed around them, Morgan finds comfort in the last person she expects to, and Clara turns to the one boy she’s been forbidden to see. With each passing day, new secrets, resentment, and misunderstandings make mother and daughter fall further apart. So far apart, it might be impossible for them to ever fall back together.
WOW! WOW! WOW! I loved this book. Real emotions. Real life.
This was my FIRST Colleen Hoover novel I read. I saw it on Instagram and only heard good things about it and decided to jump on the bandwagon and read it and I have to say… I. AM. NOT. SORRY!
I loved this story. The characters, the tragedy, the love, all relatable. I was able to empathize with these characters especially with how Morgan tried to spare Clara the truth about her father. The way Clara realizes that her mother was as much a victim of the situation as her father was. This story is real life and the emotions we go through.
I am definitely going to be reading more of Colleen Hoover.
