The moment Spencer meets Hope the summer before seventh grade, it's
. . . something at first sight. He knows she's special, possibly
even magical. The pair become fast friends, climbing trees and
planning world travels. After years of being outshone by his older
brother and teased because of his Tourette syndrome, Spencer
finally feels like he belongs. But as Hope and Spencer get older
and life gets messier, the clear label of "friend" gets messier,
too. Through sibling feuds and family tragedies, new relationships
and broken hearts, the two grow together and apart, and Spencer, an
aspiring scientist, tries to map it all out using his trusty system
of taxonomy. He wants to identify and classify their relationship,
but in the end, he finds that life doesn't always fit into
easy-to-manage boxes, and it's this messy complexity that makes
life so rich and beautiful.

Review This Product
A heartwarming story
Thu, 18 Jan 2018 | Review by: Sue @ Crushingcinders
A heartwarming story with complex, layered and very realistic characters and a rich storyline.
I really liked the way the author handled time, fast forwarding at just the right places throughout the book so the story spans several years and the reader is kept on their toes.
I was voluntarily provided with a complimentary review copy by the publisher.
