From #1 New York Times bestselling author of It Ends with Us comes a poignant novel about family, first love, grief, and betrayal that will touch the hearts of both mothers and daughters.

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. 

 

5 iScream Cones

“Sometimes you have to walk away from the fight in order to win it.”

I’ve read over 2000 books and I can honestly say this is the first book I’ve read like this. The alternating POV is mother/daughter. Other than the backstory that brings us to the present, once the daughter is 16 yrs old both POV’s run parallel. The author put me inside their heads, and I knew things they didn’t share with each other. I thought my head was gonna explode! 🤯

I devoured this story. It pulled me in immediately and when I learned what I learned, I didn’t know how to handle the information. I did kinda see it coming, like a train wreck, looking down the tracks and knowing it was gonna crash, but unable to look away. I was shaking my head, talking to myself, saying no, No, NO!

I felt their confusion and pain. I telepathically provided advice and virtual hugs. I didn’t really do a damn thing, but at the same time, I felt so proud of these strong women who got knocked down more than once and kept getting back up. Putting myself in their shoes left me mentally rocking in a corner.

“I wonder if I can somehow separate the anger from the love.” I felt this statement down to my soul. The author gave me a peek into a window that had me outraged one minute, broken the next, and finally, overflowing with too much love to contain. I guarantee that I won’t be forgetting or regretting my time with these amazing characters. Well done, Colleen Hoover. 💔
