"This book made me want to go outside and start looking up at the sky in hopes that I’ll be able to get out of reality sometimes. ✨⭐️🌟💫🌙 This book was one emotional roller coaster. 😢 The trauma, self love, and finally finding yourself, I loved reading Sky’s journey into all of those steps even if some parts were hard to get through. “HOPELESS”😩 and the meaning gave me goosebumps for days! Thank you Colleen Hoover for giving me another book to love. 💖❤️💖❤️"
"Not what I was expecting at all. I was invested in it the whole way through. I can’t wait for the next boom. Trigger warnings for incest and pedophilia. "
"Loved it! Read it one sitting it was so good. It definitely dipped into some themes that were hard for me to read. Definitely be aware of that going into picking up this book. I love Hoovers writing but it can be quite overwhelming at times. Overall I felt like this was a really good book and I’m excited to watch these characters develop in the next book! 9/10"
