These Are the Moments by Jenny Bravo
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I don't read much YA or NA, and I got this because I follow Jenny's blog, her Twitter, and have gotten to know her a bit more through #StorySocial on Twitter, so I was really excited to read her book.
This book was honestly like looking back at my own history. Granted, I've never loved anyone who couldn't get their crap together, but a lot of Wendy's teenage experiences, from going to Youth Group retreats to pining after a guy who has only shown a passing interest in me at first, rang real.
In fact, a lot of the world Jenny built was very real. I could see the town Wendy lived in, the friends she had, her younger sister's painful first breakup, the pain of catch and release with Simon's affections. I seriously wanted to punch him, and kept asking what it was about him that made her keep going back. Simon was a terrible person, and Wendy deserved so much better.
Everything in the story was very relatable, right down to feeling ignored by your recently engaged best friend (or any friend in a new, exciting relationship). These Are The Moments that we can all remember happening to us. I liked the story, and I'm looking forward to reading the prequel and sequel.
