Finding Laila by TK Rapp
I've been a cheerleader.
I've been a study partner.
I've been a listener.
When we're young, we don't realize the profound impact certain people will have on our lives. I had no idea twelve years ago I'd meet four boys who would turn out to be my best friends, my soul mates - my barmy.
Now school is almost done, our last summer together is drawing closer, and I'm trying to hold on to what we have while I still can. After this, we'll have to say goodbye to each other as our choices will take our lives in different direction. But I don't know if our friendship can survive once secrets and surprises begin revealing themselves to us at every turn.
when it's all said and done, will our friendships remain unbreakable? Or will our once strong bond prove to be weaker than we anticipated?
Letting go is harder than I thought, but some changes are necessary.
And finding Laila...finding myself...maybe the greatest journey of all.
Wow, what can I say to make y'all buy TK Rapp's book?
First off, I'm not going to giveaway anything about the book away, all I'm going to do is explain how Finding Laila made me feel.
I know the exact moment I was going to love this book, and that was at 2%. It was a magnificent read! I would would catch myself reminiscing about my own high school experience, and every emotion I had was bitter sweet. Laila was the type of character I would have loved being friends with in high school, and let's say there was a few parts I was jealous at her because of the friendship she had with Joey, Cole, Haden, and Braxon. Lol
Author TK Rapp made me feel like one of the guys, reminded me about young love, true friendships, and heartache. You can't help but get sucked into the story and want to be part of it. Once you read Finding Laila you will fall in love with it, there is no doubt that you will!
My feeling were all over the place.
I was happy, excited, nervous, upset, sad, and devastated. Oh boy, when I say devastated I mean bawling my eyes out and having my hubby bring me comfort food while blowing my nose and not wanting to leave my bed. I highly recommend y'all having tissue on hand.
Would I read this book all over again? Yes, I most definitely would!
Did Author TK Rapp catch me by surprise? Yes, she did!
This book is a MAGNIFICENT READ!!!
