Till It Arrives is inspired by Jamie from The Perpetual Page-Turner’s Save the Date feature. Sometimes I read books that are not released anytime soon, but I want to share some of my feelings on the book right away, so Till It Arrives is born! (It also allows me to read books that appear later in my schedule, so that’s awesome too.) Since I don’t usually use GIFs in my reviews, I thought I’ll use plenty of GIFs to describe my feelings for the book I’m talking about in this feature!
It’s been a year since it happened — when Paige Hancock’s first boyfriend died in an accident on the river. After shutting out the world, Paige is finally ready for a second chance at high school… and she has a plan and true to her type-A tendencies, she has a plan:
1. Date a boy: Her old crush Ryan Chase is the perfect path to normalcy.
2. Attend parties: With her friends by her side, doable.
3. Join a club: Simple, it’s high school after all.
4. Swim: Terrifying. Yet possible?
Armed with her plan and the endless support of her three best friends, Paige is ready to rejoin the realm of normal high school. But when Ryan’s sweet, nerdy cousin, Max, moves to town and recruits Paige for the Quiz Bowl team (of all things!) her perfect plan is thrown for a serious loop. Starting over doesn’t always happen smoothly, but the scariest things are usually the most difficult. Will Paige be able to face her fears and finally open herself up to the life she was meant to live and the love she deserves to feel?
Brimming with heartfelt relationships and authentic high-school dynamics The Start of Me and You proves that it’s never too late for second chances.
First Sentence: Of all the places to have something memorable happen to you, Oakhurst, Indiana, had to be one of the worse.
