GOODREADS BOOK BLURB:
SERIES / GENRES:
There are parts about It Starts with Us I really love and parts that could be better, so overall, it was okay. Unfortunately, it didn’t quite have the same effect as It Ends with Us.
We get it. Atlas and Lily are perfect for each other, and despite life keeping them apart, they were meant to be. I don’t care how close you were as teenagers: everyone grows and changes. It should have taken some effort to reconnect and rebuild what they once had. You can’t take a teenage relationship and resume when you’ve got a child and responsibilities and an abusive ex-husband. Not to mention a history full of lies and pain and hurt. It was way too easy for these two to forget all of that and be the Atlas and Lily that everyone wants them to be.
I’d say this was fan fiction, but really, it’s an author being pressured into writing what the fans want. Hoover says it herself – she wanted to end Lily’s story with It Ends with Us. But BookTok and Bookstagram wouldn’t give up, and we ended up with this lukewarm attempt at a sequel. There was enough information at the end of It Ends with Us to assume most of what happens here anyway.
