This book really drew me in and several unknowns about the characters, their relationship, and their motivations kepye reading. I finished it in one day! It covers some tough topics and took me back to what it was like to be in those final years of high school, trying to figure out who you are and who you want to be moving forward. It was tough to read in some ways, but also really compelling. Ryen and Misha’s relationship was complex, but also simple in the way that relationships are when you’re young. This was a satisfying readand my first time reading anything written by Douglas. I’ll definitely read more of her work now!
ABOUT THE BOOK
Secrets, deception, and passion consume two pen pals in the TikTok sensation from New York Times bestselling author Penelope Douglas, now with exclusive bonus material.
They were perfect together. Until they met.
In fifth grade, Misha’s teacher set him and his classmates up with pen pals from a different school. For the next seven years, Ryen was his everything. She kept Misha on track and accepted him as he is. They only had three rules: No social media, no phone numbers, no pictures. There was no reason to ruin the good thing they had going…until Misha runs across a photo of a girl online named Ryen. He knows he has to meet her. But he didn’t expect to hate what he finds.
Ryen has gone three months without a letter from Misha. Did he die? Get arrested? Knowing Misha like she does, neither would be a stretch. She needs to know someone is listening to her. But really, Ryen knows this is her own fault. She should’ve gotten his phone number, or picture, or something.
As a mysterious vandal leaves messages in Ryen’s school, she’s possessed by the handsome new student who knows just how to hurt and heal her. But she can’t stop thinking of Misha. He could be gone forever. Or right under her nose, and she wouldn’t even know it…
