Blurb

What I remember the most about that day was that it was completely ordinary. Then with one stupid decision everything fell apart and nothing was ever the same.

Rae Wilder wants nothing but a do over—but life doesn’t work that way. She’s stuck living out the consequences of her actions. At times the burden feels unbearable.
College is supposed to be her second chance.
New place.
New people.
New life.
No one to know what she did.
Despite that, she has still vowed to avoid everyone and everything at all costs.
Unfortunately for her, an accidental run-in with the campus heartthrob, Cade Montgomery, derails that plan.
He’s determined to thaw the ice around her heart and expose the girl she used to be. He wants to show her that life is worth living for and that she really is a Rae of Sunshine.

Excerpt

The thing about starting over is it isn’t as easy as people say.

It’s impossible to become a completely different person.

You can change your hair.

Your makeup.

Even your name.

But at the end of each and every day you’re still the same person you were yesterday, and the day before that.


I’d spent the last year trying, and failing, to become a different person. The shitty events of my life had certainly changed me and I wasn’t the same carefree girl I used to be, but I was still Rachael—or Rae as I preferred to be called now—because no matter how far we run we can never escape ourselves.

MY REVIEW:
4 STARS!!

Micalea Smeltzer spins a sweet tale of college students coming into their own-- Rae has suffered a terrible loss, and after running into a brother and sister duo that are more tenacious and infectiously charming than anyone else she has ever met, learns how to live again. I found the writing to be smooth and the story is cohesive, allowing yourself to truly KNOW what is going on from each of the characters and grow with Rae in her journey from self-loathing to that of a normal college freshman. Allowing people in and to be the person that she wants to be, and remembering that if you allow yourself to lean on someone, they in turn, will lean on you. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone who loves some YA/College, and looks for an emotional depth that can be thought provoking x
