When the first copy of this book arrived in the Bookshop where I work, nestled amongst the days delivery, I bought it before it reached the shelf…
Back in the first lockdown I read Five Feet Apart and adored it (you can read my blog post here), so you can imagine how excited I was to see a new YA story by this incredible duo: All This Time by Mikki Daughtry and Rachael Lippincott.
Max and Kimberly are the perfect couple. And for Max in particular, life without Kimberly doesn’t exist. But for Kimberly it seems, it does.
On the night of their graduation party, Kimberly delivers a fatal blow. She wants to break up.
Minutes later they are involved in a devastating car accident and Kimberly is dead. Max’s world has changed forever…
What does life and love look like after this?
I knew this was going to be good – and I was right! What a beautiful and magical love story. I was hooked for the entirety of the novel (I haven’t read such a good plot twist since Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon) and the characters were so vivid I felt as if I knew them.
I don’t normally read a lot from the teen range but I adored this. All This Time is a mesmerising portrayal of true love and the confusion of loss, with some powerful messages for dreamers 😉
Heart-breaking, tear jerking (me = sobbing) and all-absorbing.
A must read.
