I really liked the sound of this one, but sadly I was disappointed. And 2 stars might be too high of a rating. Everly is a decent enough MC. Her inner monologue is a little rough, but I like that she was actively trying to get over the betrayal. Gabe had promise, but he seemed flat and the other secondary characters were all clichés. I didn't see the chemistry between Everly and Gabe and I think that's where I struggled the most. The writing is all tell, not show. There were scenes that went on way longer than they should have because every minute detail was stated. That got old really quick. Couple that with pages of long paragraphs and no dialogue and I started to lose interest. I will say that the open showing of mental health was nice. Anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder were all discussed, as well as therapy and medication. I liked that it talked about how feeling better could be a struggle and that you couldn't just throw some pills at a diagnosis. Overall, I can see how this might appeal to other readers, but it just wasn't for me. **Huge thanks to Harper Teen for providing the arc free of charge**
