I fell in love with the characters. I seriously loved all of them (of the more major ones but, like, not that dude Tom) or at least knew where they were coming from and could understand their motifs; even the ones that at first glance seem to be real jerks. But not Jay. Sorry, but he has to be my second exception because even though he gets some redeeming qualities, he is still an asshole for not realizing what was wrong with his actions. Grace is such a strong girl despite having to grow up far too soon and having all of this anger balled up inside of her; anger at her mother but also quite a lot at herself. Eva was very easy to like. I sympathised with her when her grief overcame her and I was joyful when she was joyful. This book also deals with the mother-daughter relationship between Grace and Maggie, so it's not just a romance book. The romance between Grace and Eva was very cute, though, and very realistic. I also found the friendship between Grace and Luca just so adorable, they are the bestest best friends, so supportive of each other and very loving. The writing and atmosphere of the book were beautiful, I got sucked into the story very easily (and willingly). I also appreciated that this was a sex-positive book, that always makes me happy. So why isn't this a 5-star-read for me? Despite all the aforementioned positive things I wasn't as emotionally invested as I wanted to be or as I needed to be to rate this book five stars. There need to be more tugs at my heart but it is still one hell of a good f/f contemporary book. After reading this book I am very curious of Blake's debut Suffer Love. It may not be as diverse but I still want to give it a try.
