Summary (from Goodreads): For as long as she can remember, Wren Gray’s goal has been to please her parents. But as high school graduation nears, so does an uncomfortable realization: Pleasing her parents once overlapped with pleasing herself, but now… not so much. Wren needs to honor her own desires, but how can she if she doesn’t even know what they are?
Charlie Parker, on the other hand, is painfully aware of his heart’s desire. A gentle boy with a troubled past, Charlie has loved Wren since the day he first saw her. But a girl like Wren would never fall for a guy like Charlie—at least not the sort of guy Charlie believes himself to be.
And yet certain things are written in the stars. And in the summer after high school, Wren and Charlie’s souls will collide. But souls are complicated, as are the bodies that house them…
Why I’m looking forward to this book: I really enjoy Myracle’s book. I also have to admit that I’m huge fan because we both went to Colorado State University. I was also lucky enough to be apart of a Young Writer’s Workshop (as a facilitator) when Myracle came. She was encouraging to the students and helped them to understand her struggles as a writer. I’m looking forward to another amazing read from Myracle.
