Puddle Jumping - Amber L. Johnson

"She was working on a sucker like she'd been paid to do candy-porn..."

--Puddle Jumping, Amber L Johnson

 

Synopsis:

 

When it comes to love there’s no such thing as conventional.

Everyone thinks Colton Neely is special.

Lilly Evans just thinks he’s fascinating.

Once friends when they were younger, their bond is cut short due to her accident prone nature and they go their separate ways. Years later, they meet again and Lilly learns that there is something special about the boy she once knew, but she has no idea what it all means. And she’s not sure if she’s ready to find out.

When he walks through the corridor of her school the first day of her senior year, she knows that it’s time to get to know the real Colton Neely. The more she learns, the deeper she falls.

Their friendship grows into love, even as Colton does not express it in words. But one decision threatens to break down the world that Lilly has tried so hard to integrate into and she must figure out if the relationship can survive if they are apart.

 

 

My Thoughts:

 

That quote made me laugh out loud, I loved it.  I do believe I've been guilty of it before.  ahhh...high school, what can I say?

 

This is a sweet, touching romance that I really loved.  I've never read a book about this particular subject matter and it was refreshing and honest in it's telling.  There is not much to say without giving away too much, though.  I will say the only thing I would have changed about it was the length, it's was way too short.
