We Are Us by Tara Leigh

Guys. You wont find another book like this. This book was so emotional and such a rollercoaster that I honestly was on the edge the entire time I was reading.

Tara weaved a story that was not only full of twists and turns that you don't see coming, it was a story that you can't help but fall in love with as you read. Parts of this story are an all too real reality for some people, and that hurts as you read. There is so much that happens in this book. I don't want to reveal any spoilers and this book is chocked full of them. It is a story about finding love so young and then having your life get in the way. It is something that happens so much in life, and this book shows you how a small change can really change your life in a moment and the repercussions you don't see coming can be life altering. Again, I am rambling. But this book was ROUGH guys. I read it in one sitting and CRIED SO MUCH. This book traverses the years with these characters but not in a way that drags. This book does so in a way that you just can't stop wishing you had more time with the characters at each stage you see them. Then the book took a turn and I was holding my breath. Well, I wasn't really, because I would have passed out, but guys, it was THAT type of a second act. You don't see the twists coming until they are right under you.
