I was very excited to be able to read an advanced copy of So Much Closer, I have been waiting to read this book since I first read what it was about, but I do have to say this book did disappoint me a little bit.
Brooke has been in love with Scott for years, she finally gets the courage to talk to Scott for the first time ever, but when she finally talks to him he tells her the news she never expected, Scott was moving to New York.
Although she has never talked to Scott before she thinks she and him are soul mates. So what does she do when she finds out he is moving, she moves to her dads house (who she hasn’t talked to for years) in New York City.
Although I do admire her courage for going after she wants, I think it’s really creepy of her to move to New York City just because of some boy. I mean do you really thing that after never talking to a boy it’s alright to pretty much stalk the kid to another state.
While she’s attending her school in New York she starts tutoring John. John has a learning disability and it’s hard for him to get concentrate and get good grades. When the weather is nice outside John takes Brooke to his favorite spots in New York. Telling her to stop and pay attention to what’s around her, to show her the little details that most people miss. John may have a learning disability but he’s so sweet and I immediately fell in love with his character.
Something that annoyed me about Brooke was how the whole time that Brooke was with Scott there was no mention of John or her other friends. It’s like she left them. I never thought that Scott was the right person for her, which made me upset because here was Brooke who thinks she was in love and Scott was super nice to her, leading her on and then Bam she falls for him even more. She didn’t even notice John.
Since the first chapter with John I knew I was hooked, I was rooting for John and Brooke the whole time.
I can’t wait to see what’s next from Susane
