From #1 New York Times bestselling author of It Starts with Us and It Ends with Us, Colleen Hoover’s romantic, emotion-packed debut novel unforgettably captures all the magic and confusion of first love, as two young people forge an unlikely bond before discovering that fate has other plans for them.

Following the unexpected death of her father, eighteen-year-old Layken becomes the rock for both her mother and younger brother. She appears resilient and tenacious, but inside, she's losing hope. Then she meets her new neighbor Will, a handsome twenty-one-year-old whose mere presence leaves her flustered and whose passion for poetry slams thrills her.

Not long after a heart-stopping first date during which each recognizes something profound and familiar in the other, they are slammed to the core when a shocking discovery brings their new relationship to a sudden halt. Daily interactions become impossibly painful as they struggle to find a balance between the feelings that pull them together and the forces that tear them apart. Only through the poetry they share are they able to speak the truth that is in their hearts and imagine a future where love is cause for celebration, not regret.

  • Slow and not as good as her other books

    This one was the slowest of the 5 I’ve read so far. I almost gave up on it half way through, but then finally got pulled in. I finished it wishing there was more. I would recommend reading her other books over this one.

    My father passed away 6 months ago and its been a very hard 6 months with such grief. This book has opened up my eyes as to how we move forward with all the first we are having without my father. Thank you Colleen for writing this book…….Melissa

    Got me hook on the first page. Love the open relationship between mom and daughter. It is a very inspiring and educational story. Totally love it.

    I really wanted to like this book but the female main character is beyond immature and selfish and it is hard to swallow. It’s actually frustrating how she acts at times and while I understand she is 18, it’s definitely aggravating. I just don’t think this book has the same magic that her other books have and I was a little disappointed by it.
