What if your safe place…is a person?
Adam Moynihan’s life used to be awesome. Straight As, close friends and a home life so perfect that it could have been a TV show straight out of the 50s. Then his oldest brother died. Now his fun-loving mom cries constantly, he and his remaining brother can’t talk without fighting, and the father he always admired proved himself a coward by moving out when they needed him most.
Jolene Timber’s life is nothing like the movies she loves—not the happy ones anyway. As an aspiring director, she should know, because she’s been reimagining her life as a film ever since she was a kid. With her divorced parents at each other’s throats and using her as a pawn, no amount of mental reediting will give her the love she’s starving for.
Forced to spend every other weekend in the same apartment building, the boy who thinks forgiveness makes him weak and the girl who thinks love is for fools begin an unlikely friendship. The weekends he dreaded and she endured soon become the best part of their lives. But when one’s life begins to mend while the other’s spirals out of control, they realize that falling in love while surrounded by its demise means nothing is ever guaranteed.
First off, how are we already starting to talk about 2020 books?! What is even going on….?
So many kids bounce between different homes because of their family situation, yet I can’t think of any books I’ve read that truly feature this. I’m glad I’ll be able to read about a different yet still relevant topic. The cover is eye catching and I’m really loving how well it all goes together. I haven’t read anything by Abigail Johnson yet, but I’m really interested interested in reading If I Fix You now! Thanks to Destiny from Howling Libraries for putting this one on my radar!
