writers readers and bloggers I mean she is one of us and she is a living proof that our dreams are possible when we work hard There are some authors who got a contract because they were just famous people and it shows in their less than average books Miss Drews, despite being a famous blogger deserves her place in the publishing world I loved her debut A Thousand Perfect Notes and now she blesses us with a gender bent Goldilocks retelling This book is easy to go through in 1 or 2 sittings This is probably because it is directed toward younger readers but it was still enjoyable for me The first thought I had after finishing both of her books is that this is the kind of books I want my children to read in the future This books delves into darker topics as abuse and abandonment There arethemes throughout the book but if I was going to choose one major theme then I would say it is definitely about families Sam and Avery, our main characters were both fleshed out Avery has autism and I think the representation was very good, I also just finished another book with an autistic rep by an own voice author and it was similar to this one so I think miss Drews did her research I am always happy to read accurate medical representations for my future Sam reminds me of my uncle, or at least the stories my mother tells me about him when he was younger I don t know if it was deliberate but Sam came to me as someone who has a intermittent explosive disorder which is so befitting given his backgroundNo, please It s you re allowed to hurt It s not a contestI have seen some reviews saying that this is a sad book but I think it isthan that and it is about finding hope in the strangest of places The book may be dark but it has a realistic satisfying ending Definitely reading the author s future works D This is a heart rending novel about family, broken pieces and redemption 15 year old Sam just wants to take care of his older brother, Avery Avery is autistic and

and redemption 15 year old Sam just wants to take care of his older brother, Avery Avery is autistic and needs routine, but that s hard to give when the only time Sam feels safe is when he s under a stolen roof.If you ve yet to read the author s debut, A Thousand Perfect Notes, well done you for protecting your heart for so long If you survived that one, your scarred heart might just be tough enough to get through this one without breaking Good luck though I recommend extra bubble wrap for protection.This is my third beautiful disaster in a row following Sadie and Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine and honestly my poor lil heart needs a time out It would be a quivering mess of uselessness if it wasn t for the De Laineys and their chaotic love I desperately needed the light they brought to Sam s story.Unlike the previous two books, this is a disaster I thoroughly enjoyed reading Because the themes of love and devotion and family are so close to my heart and Sam is a dude I can really relate to I mean, not so much the homelessness and the breaking into houses and looking after an autistic brother and stuffjust, like, the dedication Family first But he s a 15 year old kid dealing with things he should never have to deal with and I just felt so much for him He deserved a little sunshine and to be loved and the happy accident of stumbling across the De Laineys was a refreshing blast of joy in a gloomy grey story and the balance wasperfect This is also a really important book for Autism representation because it continues to remind the reader thatAvery is not brokenAutism is not a passing illness, it s not a defect this book reps HARD and it was just written so respectfully while still facing the reality of how viciously autism can be viewed by ignorant members of society Avery is a character you will find it hard not to fall in love with As with the author s previous novel, there s violence in here that will break your heart but there s a message within itYou can do monstrous things and not be a monster This is a novel about choices about good, bad, and all the shades of grey that lie in between This is a novel not afraid to face ugliness so that you can also appreciate the beauty when it s there It s about mistakes, and choices, and the lengths we go to for family.Loved it from start to finish, and highly recommend to anyone brave enough to offer their heart up for a thorough drenching in emotions Brilliance, sheer brilliance.Sammy Lou captured my heart He s so precious and so desperate Poor little baby He deserved far better than he got he deserved a home and a family and parents who loved him and all Moxie s love and aghhhhh my child.

Perfect Notes and to be frank with you all, C.G Drews is right now, with the emotions I m feeling after reading this book, one of my favourite YA authors There s just something about these books that I feel like I m just be able to connect with the characters and feel all the feels for them and just really hope that everything will end up ok for all of them I ll try to express Oh my goodness, I mean like look, I absolutely loved this so much, just like at how I really loved reading A Thousand Perfect Notes and to be frank with you all, C.G Drews is right now, with the emotions I m feeling after reading this book, one of my favourite YA authors There s just something about these books that I feel like I m just be able to connect with the characters and feel all the feels for them and just really hope that everything will end up ok for all of them I ll try to express how much I loved this as coherently as possible, but I would apologise in advance if this review is a slight mess.I really loved this book right from the very first chapter and there s really just something that made me able to feel so bad for every character and Drews really is able to make the reader be able to connect with them and feel for them Sammy especially is so, so broken and all I wanted was for things to be able to be ok and for him be able to look forward to a brighter future after the things he has suffered and gone through at such a young age, at a time when he should be going to school and making friends, but instead is left on the streets and all he wants is a home Like maybe, as a teenaged book review like I am, Sammy is much closer to my age than the vast majority of book characters and perhaps seeing that, made me really care for him so muchYes, he has his faults, but it makes him feel so muchrealistic and these so called faults aren t even his fault, as all he wants is to protect the people that he deeply cares about as well as the trauma he underwent when he was such a young child.Then there s also Moxie, who I also loved, so, so much and just her ability to care and listen, but also be able to be snarky, strong and brave She s truly the person that is able to get Sam throughout the course of this novel and to be there to support him, but also to not be afraid to speak the truth from her heart and to express herself so brilliantly, whilst knowing that some things are out of her or others control If not for how much I so deeply cared for Sam and how much I wanted him to be able to have a better life ahead, Moxie would be my next favourite character I simply loved how bright she shone as a character And before anyone tells me off for being hella weird for caring so much for book characters, look, leave me alone ok, it s not very often I love a book this much Even Avery, who I have all my sympathies for, and even though he isn t the most present character, it does feel he often is there, and he needs to be protected as people use him in ways that are utterly just wrong.And naturally, I really enjoyed the family dynamics and Drews wrote a family that clearly loved each other, despite going through so many problems of its own and every family member was able to stick out as an individual, whether they were at times annoying or not, that s besides the point It s clear not everything perfect, and they know that, yet everyone is just trying their best to make things work and I was so delighted at the way they took on Sam and cared for him.One thing that I found slightly ironic almost was that Sam and Avery had an Aunt called Karen, which in 2020 s context, is essentially beingof a boomer than a boomer not to mention that there is this literal line in the bookOr she ll call the police Which like look, I m almost positive it wasn t intentional that her name was Karen, as it is a common enough name, but it s still sort of funny.I actually have not breezed through a book this quickly in who knows how long I finished this in about 16 17 hours or so, and half of that was me sleeping and it s a 350 paged book, and the thing was, was that I truly enjoyed every moment of it and I wasn t forcing myself to push through it since I had nothing better to do like I did with The Wise Man s Fear, where I read like 500 pages in a day I was so immersed with this book that there was this instance where I read 60 pages but had no idea and looked down at the page count and realised that I had in fact read 60 pages yet hadn t looked down at the page count That really doesn t happen often as for some odd reason I like looking at the amount of progress that I ve made.Like look, yes, I was a roller coaster of emotions and I had to take the occasional break to stop be from tearing up that much, because life can be miserable sometimes, but it can also be glorious, bright and colourful There were also some scenes that made my heart ache and yearn forof these fabulous people who I managed to simply adore In short I LOVE THIS SO MUCH AND YOU NEED TO READ IT AND I WILL BE RECOMMENDING THIS TO EVERYONE WANTING A YA CONTEMPORARY FROM NOW ON 10 10 I won t have anywhere decent to live Or sleep Or eat I llI ll steal I ll steal houses 3.5 Ok, so for me this wasn t up there with A Thousand Perfect Notes Don t get me wrong, this was a good book and the characters were on point.I just found this one a lot harder to relate to, I guess I can t honestly put my finger on why this one didn t connect as strongly with me but there we are onto the review Sammy Lou and his brother Avery have been on the run for some time now Sammy sI won t have anywhere decent to live Or sleep Or eat I llI ll steal I ll steal houses 3.5 Ok, so for me this wasn t up there with A Thousand Perfect Notes Don t get me wrong, this was a good book and the characters were on point.I just found this one a lot harder to relate to, I guess I can t honestly put my finger on why this one didn t connect as strongly with me but there we are onto the review Sammy Lou and his brother Avery have been on the run for some time now Sammy steals houses, AKA he breaks into houses where families have gone on holiday or are similarly empty, before moving onto another We know there is a history with their relatives, but we don t know what it is they are running from, or why.Avery has autism, and Sam has been his rock for years Protecting him from those who don t understand, from those who would hurt him When Avery falls in with a bad crowd Sam finds himself alone When hiding in an abandoned home, Sam soon finds it isn t abandoned at all, and he becomes swept up in a large family gathering, with food, drink and friends Sam has never experienced anything like it, and when each family member believes he is someone else s friend, Sam manages to get by unseen.His time with the De Lainey family is Sam s idea of heaven, but he knows it can t last He has too many secrets to hide When eventually these secrets comes to light, Sam finds himself in deeper water than ever.I really didn t like the treatment of Sam by the authorities the social worker was awful, and he was in constant fear of the police Like honestly the kid was 14 I guess it serves to show how horrible adults can be and how black and white some views are, I just found I was so angry while reading rather than enjoying it.Overall, the De Lainey family made this for me Grady, Jeremy, Jack, Moxie, Dash, Toby and the baby, with of course Mr De Lainey running the ship Their family just sprouted so much love, and they were so open to share it with everyone Note I ve decided to lower my rating to four stars and slightly edited the review for purely personal reasons I like to save five star ratings for books that deeply affect me I still highly recommend this though and think it s a great book ReviewThis is just my kind of contemporary.Trigger warnings homelessness, violence, ableism, child abuse.If you re looking for something fluffy and easy to read, this ain t that I d actually strongly caution against you reading this if any of the trigge Note I ve decided to lower my rating to four stars and slightly edited the review for purely personal

homelessness, violence, ableism, child abuse.If you re looking for something fluffy and easy to read, this ain t that I d actually strongly caution against you reading this if any of the triggers really get to you, it s even darker than the author s debut A Thousand Perfect Notes The protagonist, Sam has gone through so much and it shows in how utterly broken he is, how he just feels so defeated and self loathing He s a character you just want to hug and give him some hot cocoa and a blanket However, it s not all bleak There are a lot of really cute scenes with him and the De Laineys, who are muchthan background characters and many of them are well developed despite getting very little page time There s also the relationship between Sam and his brother Avery which is both heartbreaking and loving, something I m glad about because we so rarely see such close platonic and brotherly relationships between boys in YA Note, I cannot say anything about the autism rep with Avery because I am not autistic, I can only say I liked Avery as a character and that this is OwnVoices The mix of emotions and character dynamics are the main reason I m giving this a high rating I also quite like the writing style It s very creative with misusing punctuation occasionally to evoke emotion and sometimes the words are even broken apart and the letters spaced to show things likeF A L L I N Gmy only issue is that I found the pacing a little uneven, but that s a minor complaint If you like creative emotional books that will make you cry at 1 00 a.m., then I highly recommend this
