    See reviews at YA Midnight ReadsMini ReviewMy belief is that if you want to write an effective story about fatal illnesses you don't want your story to be too short I feel that 250 pages is too short for a book that deals with these types of topics as they do call for detail and emotional build ups The Summer I Found Yo

    So I've spent the last four hours reading this entire book and wondering a few things1 Is it Aidan or Aiden? Seriously? This is so obvious it's not even Writing 101 It's like Common Sense 101 You should know how to spell your own character's name2 Did this book not have betas? Because it has legitimately the w

All they have in common is that they're less than perfect And all they're looking for is the perfect distractionKate's dream boyfriend has just broken up with her and sh. 25 STARS Something Like Normal was easily one of the most enjoyable New Adult books I ve read this year and I was fully under the impression that this will be following a similar vein but with heavier emotional heft as the hero AidanAiden it varies Connelly not only suffers from PTSD but also lost an arm from his tour in Afghanistan and the heroine Kate Walker a distant family acuaintance was recently diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes Such heavy potential right there which unfortunately kept at being all potential none kinetic I just dropped some Physics right there Recognize peopleBecause apart from protesting about carrying a big bag containing her diabetes paraphernalia You don t understand It s forever Kate is reeling from getting dumped by her Princeton bound Obama wannabe boyfriend for a cheerleader She really needs a distraction from all that heartache and responsibility to keep herself alive And that s where AidanAiden comes in Who also needs a distraction from the things that he s actively avoiding from doing like figuring out what to do with his life now that he s a veteran At nineteen Or visiting the widow of the guy who ended up dead beside him when his arm was blasted off And he really needs someone to say to his face that he has one arm which Kate luckily loves doing while not telling AidanAiden her condition And from there you can pretty much surmise where things will go and how things will pan out This was told in alternating POVs between Kate and AidanAiden in a back and forth manner which is never my favorite storytelling device because it doesn t necessarily serve the progression of the story best but just feels like something done for symmetry This is my first read form this author and the writing wasn t exceptionally good but wasn t offensive either Oh wait the sheer number of times or something was usedabused as sentence filler 27 if you re curious Yeah not offensive but cringe worthy nonetheless The dialogue was okay though if I was a seventeen year old girl I d probably be offended by Perry s interpretation of a girl from that ageNow I really really need to be careful here because it is so easy to point the blame at Kate for dragging the story down with her immaturity and selfishness refusing to face the gravity of her disease From the 33 year old vantage point taking shots of insulin everyday indefinitely versus I dunno life altering end organ damage andor certain death that s really not up for discussion However from someone as young as Kate I think I can remotely understand some of her bitterness on her first world problems I can t imagine one of those How awkward would it have made Aidan Some electronic thing strapped to me A small tube inserted in my skin I shudder at how weird and gross that would be Attached Emphasis on the SOME and the REMOTELY And the rest really was completely ridiculous The kind that makes you want to reach into your reading device and smack her senseless She thinks having a disease makes her feel gross I suspect this has a lot to do with the lying down on the public bathroom floor Ewww to administer her insulin because she s scared of needles but knowing Kate s logic about her condition who really knows She has some insatiable need to make herself out as a victim when she doesn t need to And I m not sure someone who doesn t even have any sense of life preservation should be having sex at this point of emotional maturity I mean perish the thought this girl gets pregnantIf this is believable realistic behavior for a seventeen year old is debatable because the only seventeen year old girls I know right now are all book characters who have either survived dystopian conditions or FUBAR families And I think this is where the book falters a lot Kate wasn t made into anybody else but the diabetic girl moping about her condition flirting with the one armed guy That even when AidanAiden recognizes Kate s immaturity and the book relies heavily on that precedent to excuse her behavior even when it better serves to contrast Kate s growth as a character I just can t understand or sympathize with her Even if she s a not really so young girl with her whole life ahead of her burdened with the responsibility of proactively keeping herself alive That is still asking for far too much from me I don t know if it was Kate s terrible character that made AidanAiden the better half of the story Although I m wondering view spoiler the morning after they had sex the first thing he does is take a phone photo with Kate hide spoiler

Summary Ï E-book, or Kindle E-pub ´ Jolene Perry

D young veteran struggling to embrace his new life When Kate and Aidan find each other neither one wants to get attached But could they be right for each other after all. olene Perry is one of those authors where if she writes a book I must read it own it and sniff it So I was so excited when I finally got my hands on a copy of The Summer I Found YouAt first I thought the book was going to be a little weird for me Reading about a guy who lost his arm and a girl with diabetes and their budding romance had me a little on edge How could a one armed guy possibly be sexy How was this book going to keep me interested Well I didn t even need to ask those uestions because they never crossed my mind once I was actually reading the bookKate is a terrible girl She just found out she has a life threatening disease and she can t be responsible enough to take her insulin or eat right She is setting herself up to die and I can t find it in me to feel sorry for her Her top priority is worrying about her ex dumping her Not that fact that she could slip into a diabetic coma at any secondAiden is awesome Aside from the whole PTSD thing But would you really expect a guy who lost his arm and a good friend to be okay To me he seemed pretty good for a guy who went through hell and back He lost his career his future his motivation but he survived in the end He is kind caring and all the things that I don t think Kate deserved at first But they worked together so well and I am glad they found each otherI really loved how the book combined such trivial high school things with some very tough choices and lifestyles On on hand I can understand Kate just wanting to live a normal life but on the other hand I can t condone her lack of self preservationThe ending had me worried for a little bit but I am glad it happened the way it did Kate needed a wake up call and I think Aiden was the only one who was able to do that for her Which is uite sad considering they hadn t known each other that long When your FAMILY and FRIENDS cannot convince you to save yourself then you really need to rethink your priorities in lifeUpdate 6292015 I have been thinking about this book a lot lately I adore the author and I love her work so her books are always popping into my head Last night I was thinking about how I have a few different illnesses but most of them I can hide because they are inside I feel like Kate thought she could hide her disability and get away with it which technically she could But it wasn t right of her to do that Aiden can t hide his disability I am torn between right and wrong here I don t normally tell people about my ailments unless they ask or if my one visual ailment is present Oh the one hand I completely understand wanting to hide your flaws But on the other hand Kate was getting into a relationship with a guy who she could somewhat relate to in terms of disabilities But she didn t and I can t fathom why Internal conflict aside I truly think everyone should read at least one of Jolene Perry s books They are always deep and beautiful and they have such horrible trials that each character must over some Her books are very inspiring I know they inspired meOverall I gave the book 55 kitties
