It Ends with Us by Colleen Hoover
Hi, my name is Kate. I am in 11th grade at Wood River High School. I enjoy hanging out with friends and playing soccer in my free time when I am not at school.
In the book It Ends With Us, by Colleen Hoover, Lily, a young girl in the city of Boston, meets a man. Neither of them knows anything about the other or how to contact them, yet they end up running into each other multiple times. Each time becomes more intense, soon leading to a romantic relationship. With Lily’s past experiences with abuse, she will learn more about things she wished she didn’t and have more appreciation towards others in her life who have been through those experiences.
I really enjoyed reading this book. As I have grown up, I shifted out of reading but this book has made me realize how much I enjoy reading. Lily was a really good main character. She is smart and independent and loves challenging herself. The decisions that she would have to make involved abuse vs. love and what choice she would have to make, were even hard for me to make as a reader. I liked how fast-paced this book was, I was always looking forward to reading more. I recommended this book to multiple other people and all of them have loved it and read it in less than 3 days. By far, this is one of my favorite books that I have read. The ending left me thinking “what would I do in this situation?” because of how complex the situation was. I highly recommend this book to anyone that likes reading romance and quick reads
