Review of book 1, Preppy Part One

Preppy finds himself back in a world he once loved, but no longer recognizes. His dim smile can’t hide his inner turmoil and the people he views as family all suddenly feel like polite strangers.

Except for one person. A girl with dark eyes and even darker hair.
A girl who isn’t even an option.

At least, not anymore.

Dre can’t decide who she’s going to listen to. Her heart, her head, or her body. Because two out of those three things have her heading right back to Logan’s Beach. Closure is what she tells herself she’s seeking, but when she unlocks doors that were never meant to be opened she soon discovers that when it comes to Samuel Clearwater, closure might NEVER be an option.

MY REVIEW

Somehow, once again, when it comes to Preppy I got heartbreaking and hilarious!! While my heart was positively aching for what my baby went through, he constantly found a way to make me laugh. How great was that hot tub scene? It almost made me pee my pants! While I knew all along that I missed Preppy (ever since King), I didn't realize just how much until the author brought him back to life in this book. Parts of him will be forever changed, a consequence of his pain, but I still found so much of the old Preppy that I knew and loved was still very much alive. He's a new version of himself: Preppy 2.0 if you will.

I love that the author didn't rush this story. Time was spent seeing the many facets of Preppy's anguish and his slow recovery. It was worthwhile to watch as he tried to claw his way out of the darkness. The attention placed on his sensitivity to light and sound was on point. And what a pleasure it was to watch him not only survive and live but to also thrive.

In the author's note, she states: "It's not just a love story between two people, it's a story about family, loyalty, and the kind of love that goes BEYOND romantic love." Indeed. The familiar cast of characters were there to love and nurture and support Preppy. Dre eventually became a part of all of that. Their road wasn't short and it definitely wasn't easy. But sometimes true beauty cannot be realized without real misery. Don't we always see the prettiest rainbows after the worst rain? That's what Preppy's story is for me. And don't mistake it, this was absolutely Preppy's story. Everyone else is supporting cast and I can't wait for the story to continue in book three. That ending though????

What I need to know more about:
Smoke's reappearance
Will there be any weddings?
Who the heck helped Chop torture Preppy?
