Why I think you should read it: Well first off I’m in love with this book/story! It was one of the first things I read on Wattpad and I absolutely fell in with love it! When YekaterinaVik writes it really flows and creates an image in your head. The transitions aren’t awkward and move the story along in a positive way. The main character, Samantha, is a normal teenage girl. She actually acts like one to! She’s very relatable and I love that. All of the chapters are fun to read and you can’t help but to sympathize (or maybe even empathize) with Sam. YekaterinaVik leaves out just enough to keep you guessing and still be able to be interested.
Characters: Samantha, the main character, is a high school senior that has a lot to deal with. Usually when you read teen books you read about how perfect and amazing being a senior is and how the girls have the perfect everything, bla, bla, bla. Well not in this story, especially not in the opening scene (which I love because I’m a sucker for rainy beaches). Samantha seems like a real girl with crushes, doubts, and even problems. There’s this guy at Sam’s school named Hank and he obviously likes her. Hank even asks Sam to go rock climbing with him, she of course says yes, but you can see she had doubts about him liking her. Now I know that I contently have doubts when guys ask me out whether they like me or not, and Sam has the exact internal struggle. The other characters are all seem relatable also, and I can picture each one as one of my friends. They all have different personalities and guess what? They also all have problems! Not that I like problems (ok who am I kidding? I LOVE problems!) , but they all have them whether its relationships, bullying, trust, or even being open to others. The characters all have a good start and I can’t wait until the next update!
Descriptions: There isn’t an overbearing amount and there isn’t to little. It’s a good median and I can’t really say too much. It seems like a good amount to me.
Tone of Writing: Since it’s written from Samantha’s POV you get a little peak inside of her head, like her dreams, regrets, and even memories. Like a normal person she curses when things aren’t going her way and things seem to be falling apart. It doesn’t feel forced and is enjoyable to read.
Point of View: One point of view, Samantha’s.
Status Of Book: Incomplete
My Rating: 5 out of 5 because it’s very realistic and I know I defiantly feel like Sam at times
