We’re loving the early reviews coming in on NetGalley! Here are a few little bites of some of the most recent: 🍒 “This book had everything I love: tangled romance, magical realism, stunningly beautiful prose, Iceland—just everything. I am going to shout about this book forever. This is the Chocolat/Sarah Addison Allen inspired YA of my dreams.” —Ellie W
“I'm speechless. I just want to tug myself in bed and cry for the rest of the day. If I could, I would give this book more than 5 stars.”—Jules G
“..it’s been forever since I last experienced something so incredibly heartfelt, unbelievably touching, and extremely emotional by reading a book. In fact, I was stunned speechless by this earth-shattering piece of story…” —Jasmine M
“What could just be another classic boy-meets-girl tale is elevated by the complication of Oskar's silence as well as by the touch of mysticism that winds through the book—just enough to complement the sense of wonder and magic at falling in love for the first time.” —Michelle K
“OMG, this has to be one of the most beautiful and romantic books I have read in a very long time! I absolutely adored the author's lyrical style of writing!” —Reviewer 259130 🍒

"Wonderfully developed, damaged protagonists alongside a slew of amazing supporting characters, all of them struggling to survive and ultimately escape their bleak lives in a deprived coal town in the mountains of West Virginia. Love, friendship, family and loyalty are probably the prevailing themes in this book, and Vroman handled it so well without drifting off into clichés or sobstuff.
While I loved both Free and Cole and their sweet budding romance, it was Free's precious relationship with her little brother that really got to me and moved me most, and how she was willing to sacrifice everything for him. I'm not too proud to admit that it made me shed quite a few tears." —Annika, Amazon Review

📖What do YOU love about stories?📖
I've been reading The Emotional Craft of Fiction by Donald Maass (which is FABULOUS, btw, and oops I spelled his name wrong on the pic!) and this quote gave me all the feels. Stories have been essential since the dawn of time. They convey culture and belief and tradition. They unite communities. They teach lessons. They inspire love, hope, imagination, yearning, and compassion. That's why I think authors, editors, book bloggers, bookstagramers, and readers are the very best types of people. We're the purveyors of empathy and understanding. We open eyes and share world views. We show people what they can become and inspire them to get there. 📚What's the last book that inspired you or changed your worldview? 📚
