Description

I watched Autumn shut down towards the end completely and totally understanding the reasoning as though I was reading it through a young woman's mind. Autumn finds herself watching them grow closer each day as they all wait at the bus stop each morning. But whatever, Finn and Autumn's relationship was cute even though it hardly lasted for long- and it was obvious that they loved each other very much. And as time passes, Autumn will be forced to confront how else life might have been different if they had never parted ways. This is one of those books that will sit at the back of my mind forever remembered, quietly torturing me and haunting my soul.

But the last twenty minutes of this book had me upping the rating due to how much this story touched me. And unprotected sex and teen pregnancy are handled in a troubling way, with little exploration of the negative consequences.But what may surprise you is that part of you goes down this rabbit hole, welling up newfound regret, breathing in anger at the fucked-up world that honestly doesn't get better as you get older.

Early in her junior year of high school, Autumn realizes she is in love with Finny but accepts that he loves Sylvie. As a reader the story’s slow build up to Autumn and Finny declaring their love which does finally occurs in the last 90% of the book.However, toward the end of eighth grade, Autumn felt pushed out by the group of friends she and Finny shared, so they drifted apart. The heart of this novel is an examination of an unresolved childhood love that is so pure and sweet that it seems too fragile to survive the turbulent years of adolescence. Autumn continues to rely on Jamie only to discover just after graduation that he’s fallen in love with her friend, Sasha. For me this book was a really good read and i didn’t want to put it down, however it lost stars for me personally as it was a little immature during scenes (the tiara being one thing) and despite the emotional ending I found it a little bit rushed but I also think this was intended just to twist the danger in the heart that little bit more!

In If He Had Been with Me, we see family, friendship, high school, and romance through Autumn's point of view. Instead, we immediately learn that Finny, the presumed love interest, has passed away in a mysterious car accident, and that our narrator Autumn is left to grapple with her guilt. The way this book is written is so unique, it’s a beautiful story that honestly makes you feel so many emotions, I couldn’t put the book down and ended up finishing it in one day. As the story follows Autumn and Finny through their high school years, they rarely interact outside of their "family" gatherings.The characters were okay, Finn was my favourite out of them all but I found I didnt really connect with the characters like I do in other books. This reads pretty plainly and I know that’s exactly what the voice was aiming to do, but there’s also still quite a lot of parts that I just skimmed over. Most of you are used to my reviews by now that you expect or maybe even anticipate "gifs" interjected drawing out how I felt while I was reading. Went their different ways, new friends and new interest but they always remained in each other lives since "The Mother's" got together for dinner once a week and they shared every major holiday together.
