Eighteen-year-old Tally is absolutely sure of everything: her genius, the love of her adoptive family, the loyalty of her best friend, Shane, and her future career as a Nobel prize-winning astronomer. There's no room in her tidy world for heartbreak or uncertainty—or the charismatic, troubled mother who abandoned her soon after she was born.
But when a sudden discovery upends her fiercely ordered world, Tally sets out on an unexpected quest to seek out the reclusive musician who may hold the key to her past—and instead finds Maddy, an enigmatic and beautiful girl who will unlock the door to her future. The deeper she falls in love with Maddy, the more Tally begins to realize that the universe is bigger—and more complicated—than she ever imagined. Can Tally face the truth about her family—and find her way home in time to save herself from its consequences?
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review, thanks to the Publisher and NetGalley.
At first I couldn't get into it. But then 9% I laughed, that helped. Tally is kind of a genius. Straight A's, loves science, and she thinks rationally. That is until puberty slams right into her.
She decides to go find out if an old rock star, knows of her mother. She almost wonders if it, could possibly be her dad. Her mother left her at her parents doorstep as a baby and never saw her again.
When she finds Jack, he really is no help. But in the midst of this she meets Maddy. A girl, who is just trying to forget. That's what most people do in that small town.
I really wanted to love this book. It was a good story but it was so drawn out. I wanted to feel more and I wasn't connecting like I should have.
I think it was a story of remembering, remembering who you were and trying to find who you are now. It was good, but I didn't love it.
