Life sucks for orphans Callum Tate and Harper Bailey.
Kicked out of their foster homes because they suffer the 'eighteen disease' with nothing but a hundred dollar check from the government and a pat on the back, they're forced to rely on a system that failed them miserably.
So they sit. They sit inside Social Services, waiting for their social workers to call their names and offer them the miracle they know will never come but they sit anyway because they have nowhere else to go, no other options on their very literal and figurative empty plates.
But as they sit, they notice the other. Although captivated, they each come to the conclusion that life is complicated enough without throwing in a boiling tension that can't ever be acted upon because they're both too busy thinking about where their next meal will come from but when their names are called and both are placed on a year long waiting list for permanent housing, suddenly relying on each other seems like a very viable plan B.
And, oh, how lovely Plan B's can be.
Well, except for the psycho from Harper's past that haunts her and, oh, yeah, there's the little issue that neither of them knows they're in love with the other.
Needless to say, Callum & Harper's life just got a bit more complicated.
“One day, you and I are gonna’ wake up and be alright. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow but one day. One day. I promise you.” - Callum Tate
Few months ago my partner in crime here Glass told me about this book and said that I'd love it. As she knows me too well I took her advice and read this book. As always she was right this is type of the book that I love! Here is her review of Callum & Harper and you can read mine below.
This book got me on the first page I believe. I melted after first few pages. That occures rarely but every time it does I love it. Let me say that this book and story itself are far from perfect but I admire those authors that make me feel the book and cry like a little baby.
Callum and Harper share almost the same past. They are both homeless and without anyone in this world and they’re also eighteen so that means that they need to take care of themselves. They suddenly meet while sitting inside Social Service and it seems like destiny wanted them to meet. Up until yesterday those two perfect strangers became somethingthey could only dream about, best friends as it seems. Only they’re uncetain how to share their feelings and their past is chasing them so they must maintain togehter but question is how when ther is so much to say and to understand. I know it sound like some romantic movie but like I said it’s so sweet that I couldn’t resist it.
I admit there is too much drama and too much misunderstandings for one book. At come point I just wanted it to be over and luckily it was. The author of this book definitely has a talent for creating sweet and heartbreaking love stories and for creating relations between charactes and defintely for putting dramatic parts (only some limits have to be set). This book is really readable and I wasn’t able to stop until the end.
I must say that I really look forward to reading other books from this author.
Until the next time,
