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.

B!!!!!!!!!! I have been in a semi book funk for a hot minute but leave it to COLLEEN MAAAA EFFIN HOOVER to slap me around and pull me right tf out of it. THIS BOOK FAM. THIS BOOK WAS SO GOOD. I knew I was going to feel all the feels, because that’s what Coho’s writing does but I had no idea I would FEEL SO DAMN MUCH.

As a mother of a now 16 year old I empathized with Morgan but I also found myself wanting to shake the hell out of her. I empathized with Clara also because I can’t imagine being 16 and going through everything she goes through. I loved the complexity and flaws of all the characters. I can even somewhat empathize with Chris and Jenny. That is a crap situation to be in all around. I frackin love Miller to pieces. He’s probably my favorite character of the entire book. I also loveddddddd Lexie and Efren. COLLEEN PLEASE GIVE THEM THEIR OWN BOOK.

I’m giving this book 5 stars, obviously, because it’s amazing and I loved it and I cried and I laughed and I felt so many things. Could not put this book down.  I recommend this book and all of Colleen Hoover's books.  Seriously, every, single, book she writes is amazing.
