Synopsis from Goodreads:
For as long as she can remember, Wren Gray’s goal has been to please her parents. But as high school graduation nears, so does an uncomfortable realization: pleasing her parents once overlapped with pleasing herself, but now . . . not so much. Wren needs to honor her own desires, but how can she if she doesn’t even know what they are?
Charlie Parker, on the other hand, is painfully aware of his heart’s desire. A gentle boy with a troubled past, Charlie has loved Wren since the day he first saw her. But a girl like Wren would never fall for a guy like Charlie—at least not the sort of guy Charlie believes himself to be. And yet certain things are written in the stars. And in the summer after high school, Wren’s and Charlie’s souls will collide. But souls are complicated, as are the bodies that house them.
Steamy, romantic, and oh-so-true to life, this is an unforgettable look at first love from one of young adult fiction’s finest writers.
“But he thought that if the world was layered with meaning, then she was the evidence, right here.”
I’m not going to write a full review because I’m so tired and I don’t even know where to start.
The cover is cute. The title is cute. I wanted a cute contemporary book to read. This was not what I expected.
The Infinite Moment of Us is just a few hundred pages of problematic content and cringeworthy moments. I honestly thought there was something wrong with me so I kept reading until the very end, but now I can see from other reviews that I wasn’t the only one who felt that way. I probably should have checked the reviews before I read the book.
If you’re considering reading this book… here’s your warning:
It will probably annoy you or disturb you at some point.
