The End of Our Story by Meg Haston
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I received this free eARC novel from Edelweiss in exchange for my honest review.
Bridge and Wil became instant friends the first day that Bridget started at her new school in Florida. Once Wil started talking to her and invited her over, they were inseparable after that. They went from best friends to boyfriend and girlfriend, and life was good. But at the end of junior year in high school, everything fell apart. Now, Wil and Bridge don't even talk to each other. They ignore one another in the halls and know nothing about each other's lives for the past year.
All of that changes, though, when Wil's father dies. Bridge thought of Wil's father as her own, so she went to him for moral support and to be there for him. One thing lead to another and they ended up dated again. But things are not as they once were, and Bridge needs to find out what has changed.
This was an intense story! I found out what happened way before the reveal, but the way the author wrote this book made me second guessing until the end. Wil's perspective was moving from the past to the present and Bridge's viewpoint was pretty much what was happening present day. I thought that this was a very well written book and I definitely loved the story.
Bridge is a work in progress. She did some bad shit and has since made up for it. She doesn't want to ruin her chance of getting into a great college and getting to leave to a bigger place than the FL town she's grown up in.
And Wil loves to build things and just wants life to stay the way it is. He knows what he wants and he's a very mature guy for his age. He even mentioned that he couldn't wait to be a grown up. Many of his friends agreed saying that they can't wait for college parties, but he meant that he couldn't wait to be in his 30's or 40's.
Both of these characters are so mature and well behaved - I loved them so much!
But that ending... Meg Haston left it wide open about what happened and I NEED CLOSURE!!! What happened?!?! Why can't I have answers?? Will she write another novel? It is always going to be this ending? Because it's seriously killing me not knowing. I guess I have to make my own story about what could happen, but I don't want to guess!
Gah, okay, besides this ending, I really enjoyed this novel and I am very glad that I got to read this free eARC. I will definitely be looking out for a sequel (ehem...) and more from this author in the future!
