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.

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.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Author/NetGalley, Publisher and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.

My Thoughts
Holy Hell. The Queen has done it again. I’m talking about ALL THE MOTHERFUDGING FEELS. From smiles, to tears, to anger and back again, this mother/daughter relationship story is perfectly written in every way. It made me long for my own mother to still be here so I could hug and tell her thank you for all she did for me and wanting the best for me.
The characters in this story are fan-friggin-tastic. Hoover chiseled them with so much realism, with so much emotion, with so much perfection. I fell in love with Clara, seeing myself as a teenager in her, with Morgan, seeing so much of my own mother in her, with Jonah, hello, Hoover, thank you for THAT book boyfriend, with Miles, can I kiss him and marry Jonah, and even with Chris. The secrets, the pain, the love…..all of it made this book the best one I read in 2019.
If you’ve never been introduced to Colleen Hoover’s work before, grab this one. You’ll want a box of Kleenex with you, and maybe even a bottle of whiskey to chase the pain away. It’s beyond just a simple recommendation. It’s an amazing novel that will leave you breathless and wanting more. Once again, Hoover has created a magnificent novel that will suck your soul right out of your body and hold it captive long after the last page is read.
