Book Review For All The Little Lights
The first time Elliot Young blood spots Catherine Calhoun, he’s just a boy with a camera, and he’s never seen a sadder and more beautiful sight.
Both Elliot and Catherine feel like outcasts, yet they find an easy friendship with each other. But when Catherine needs him there, he’s forced to leave town.
When he finally returns, him and Catherine are two different people, he’s the star high school athlete, and she spends all her time working in her mums mysterious bed -and- breakfast. She hasn’t forgiven Elliot for leaving, but he’s determined to win her back.
I gave this 2 stars
This book took a while to get into because it takes half of the book to actually get into any drama, and when it finally does, its not intense drama. The relationship wasn’t as intense as I like it to be either, it didn’t have me dying for them to be together.
Why I Enjoyed This Read
I did enjoy the friendship between Elliot and Catherine, even after they’d been apart for a good few years, they still managed to find each other again and love each other even more than before. Its quite beautiful.
Who Would Enjoy This Read
Anyone looking for a light story with a childhood friendship love that’s quite sweet to read, this is the book for you.
I was expecting a lot more from the story than I got, im a little disappointed but just because I did’nt enjoy it as much as I expected doesn’t mean you won’t. Just make sure you don’t start reading this book with high expectations and you may be pleasantly surprised.
