If He Had Been with Me: The Tiktok Sensation
About this deal
This book is a treasure; I did not suspect it would be so good when I picked it up, but now I can feel the printed words seeping through my skin and into my veins, rushing to my heart and marking it forever. It was raining, of course, and with his girlfriend, Sylvie Whitehouse, he glided through the rain in the red car his father had given him on his sixteenth birthday.
The way this book is written is so unique, it’s a beautiful story that honestly makes you feel so many emotions, I couldn’t put the book down and ended up finishing it in one day. It was obvious from like halfway through the book that Finny and Sylvie were arguing about Autumn during their car crash. Readers know from the beginning that Autumn and Finny’s story will end in tragedy, but that does not stop the reader from wanting to follow their journey. Teen readers may relate to some of the characters' experiences, such as shifts in friend groups, cliques, and trying on various identities. This whole book, I have rated it a 3 because the writing wasn’t entirely the best but it was good enough that I could continue on.Our main characters are in high school and I really related to the emotions, relationships, and friendships in this book.
Her friends were also a supportive bunch, and I enjoyed the fun they had and the time they spent together, but one particular point which I didn’t exp When she isn’t at home agonizing over her own novels Laura works at the public library where the patrons give her plenty of inspiration for her writing. I was probably at a 6 out of 10 BUT now that I’ve thought way more about them and the book has sunken in, JFC I can’t get this book out of my head. I love him in a way I cannot define, as if my love were an organ within my body that I could not live without yet could not pick out of an anatomy book.I also knew the closer I got the end what was going to happen but I didn't know that I would be treated to confessions that made my heart burst with happiness even though I knew in a few short pages I knew my heart would break in two.
