Release date: December 14th, 2013
Publisher: Crescent Moon Press Inc.
Purchase: Amazon
Synopsis via Goodreads:
Seventeen-year-old Alexia Stone never wanted to move cross country. And she certainly never wanted to share her new bedroom with an amnesiac ghost boy desperate for her help.
But after setting aside the assumption she’s gone crazy, Alexia engages in the impossible—she agrees to help the ghost discover who he was and what happened to him. Convinced this mystery is what’s keeping the phantom in the world of the living, Alexia puts her heart on the line to find out what his unfinished business might be.
Ultimately, Alexia must decide what’s more important to her—keeping her phantom boyfriend or helping him finally find peace in death. What she didn’t plan on was not having a choice. One of them must move on, but what if neither wants to let go?
I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.
Won’t Let Go grabbed my interest from the beginning, especially since I could relate to Alexia. My family moved when I was in high school and I remember how difficult that was. In fact, as I read, I thought I wish I’d handled it as well as she did.
Avery Olive is good at writing about Alexia’s feelings. Alexia, understandably, falls quickly for her ghostboy who is pretty much perfect for a teenage boy.
I really liked most of Won’t Let Go. When it got close to the end, however, it took a strange turn. How Alexia found out about what happened to Embrey didn’t seem to fit in this story, but that’s just my personal preference. I did feel the ending was good.
I recommend Won’t Let Go to anyone who likes a good young adult story, especially if you like a touch of paranormal.
