From the New York Times bestselling author of We Were Liars and Genuine Fraud comes a complex novel about acceptance, forgiveness, self-discovery, and possibility, as a teenage girl attempts to regain some sense of normalcy in her life after a family crisis and a broken heart.
If you could live your life again, what would you do differently?
After a near-fatal family catastrophe and an unexpected romantic upheaval, Adelaide Buchwald finds herself catapulted into a summer of wild possibility, during which she will fall in and out of love a thousand times–while finally confronting the secrets she keeps, her ideas about love, and the weird grandiosity of the human mind.
A raw, funny story that will surprise you over and over, Again Again gives us an indelible heroine grappling with the terrible and wonderful problem of loving other people.
Thank you to TBR and Beyond Tours and author E. Lockhart for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The tour schedule for this book tour can be found below.
This is the first novel I have ever read by E. Lockhart and I was very pleased with this book. It does take you a moment to get used to the prose and how the story develops but after that it is smooth sailing and the book absolutely engulfs you. Adelaide isn’t the perfect MC by any means, but this did allow me to relate to Adelaide more in terms of how she dealt with school and her relationships. Her journey is not straight forward and you will continuously question which parts of the story are cannon and which aren’t. And honestly, you may never know. Trying to figure out which of Adelaide’s ‘realities’ was the real one was fun and challenging and while I have no way of knowing which one is real, the journey was still fulfilling nonetheless.
I don’t want to give away too much because I think this story is best enjoyed knowing absolutely nothing about the plot. But, I will say that this story will make you feel things, good and bad. There is grief, hope, sadness, and happiness wrapped up in this book-shaped package we got with this story.
Top 5 Reasons to Read
- The PROSE! The prose is absolutely beautiful and you’ll need to read carefully to ensure you don’t miss any of the fine details.
- Adelaide was written very realistically and I truly felt like I was going on summer journey with her.
- You get many stories within this one book. You may see a scene play out and then get an a different scene entirely when the story moves forward. None of the scenarios are as they seem.
- Fast paced. E. Lockhart’s writing definitely pulls you in and doesn’t let go. I would be surprised if the majority of people didn’t finish this book in one sitting.
- The way the plot develops is very unique. You won’t be able to guess what happens next.
