Wow!!!! After reading the blurb of the books I was confused as anyone else that what this book was all about and let me tell this book is freaking awesome. I have never read any book n this author but I think now I have to read all of her work because oi freaking loved this one. This book was soo self enduring I think. This was all about a girl want to fit in the group of people and have to fake it because she is so awkward.
The start of the story was quite interesting, Misha and Ryen both were pen pals started writing when they were in 5th grade, allotted by their class teacher. But after that first assignment they continue writing to each other. Despite living only 30 miles away from each other, they both made decision to never to search each other on social net or send a photo or anything. Their letters were their lifeline for each other. They use to share each and every single detail of their life and sometimes they exchanged letters more than one time a day. Their letters are something like this.
So, have I ever told you my secret shame?
And no, it’s not watching Teen Mom like you. Go ahead and try to deny it. I know
you don’t have to sit there with your sister, man. She’s old enough to watch TV by her-
No, actually, it’s far worse, and I’m a little embarrassed to tell you. But I think
negative feelings should be released. Just once, right?
You see, there’s a girl at school. You know the kind. Cheerleader, popular, gets every-
thing she wants… I hate to admit this, especially to you, but a long time ago I wanted
to be her.
Part of me still does.
You would absolutely hate her. She’s everything we can’t stand. Mean, cavalier,
superficial… The kind who doesn’t have a thought stay in her head too long or else she
needs a nap, right? I’ve always been fascinated with her, though.
And don’t roll your eyes at me. I can feel it.
After seven years of creating this beautiful friendship they were destine to meet at some point of time. right?
Misha was the guitarist in their band and Ryen was in senior year high school. It was sort of like Mean Girls, but the popular one, here, Ryen does this so people don’t ignore her. She was quite awkward at talking but she never wanted to be ignore. Quite a dilemma. But what she was with Misha in her letters was her true self and not some vile bitch she portrays at school.
But when circumstances brought Misha in front of Ryen, his first emotion was betrayal because he never imagined the girl he was falling for was such a crude. So, Misha does what a normal guy would do and ignore all her letters. but Ryen doesn’t like to get ignored so she does something major which no one have expected her to do. Well I was also shock for a bit that she is the one but well you need the outsource for your voice.
Misha takes admission in Ryen’s school, the reason behind him taking the admission is not Ryen but something majorly else. There, the more he sees he sees Ryen the more he despises her.
But after talking to her and after insulting her, he feels for the real Ryen.
Whereas from the start Misha knew who Ryen was, she had no idea. The Guy who insulted her, who kissed like he meant it and which was the best thing she ever felt, that guy was Masen Lawson not Misha Laer.
When secrets are disclosed Misha and Ryen have many stakes to lose and most importantly they have each other to lose which they love more than anything else.
There were so many ups and downs in there I was truly feeling like I was in a roller-coaster. I never wanted to keep the book down and now that I have finished it I want more of them.
