**FEATURED ON WATTPAD - May 2017**
  
  Fifteen-year-old Autumn Lyne has always been locked in her own little world. She doesn't expect anything out of the ordinary in the fall of her sophomore year. But when she meets the mysterious seventeen-year-old Michael Summer, her world shifts, and she finds herself connecting deeply to someone for the first time. This unexpected bond changes her life and makes her learn the painful truth that nothing remains the same and that growing up is inevitable.    
          
        "The Way It Was Before" is a bittersweet coming-of-age story about the fragility of human connections, the swiftness of time, the value of memories, the joy and pain of first love, and, most of all, hope.

        "This book made me go through so many emotions, and I actually felt it all. I have never cried so much for a book..." - dirty_girlz 
        
        "It hurts so much I get physical pains in my chest and this is proof that this book is more than just a book it is a work of art one that has the ability to rip out a part of my heart and it hasn't given back..." - ArtemisCL2004 
        
        "Despite how this story's plot was almost light, the character's that completes it makes it deep in a sense that you could see the real human-ness between their relationships..." - -oddities
        
        "This story didn't need a lot of kissing scenes or hot makeout sessions to make it feel like a romance book and that's what made it brilliant and awesome and fantastic. It made the saying how "love shouldn't make you feel like you're in a party but it should make you feel like home" really true and I think that's beautiful." - felicituous 
        
        "...it gives me hope that someday it will all make sense." - addictiveheartaches

The things is: I seem to never distinguished the difference of loving someone and crushing on someone.

This seriously needs to be a movie I'd pay to see all of my favorite Wattpad books as movies.
