The Bookish Baker
Huntley Fitzpatrick’s debut novel has ALWAYS been one of my favorite YA contemporaries since it released. I can hardly believe it was her first novel! It has what I love when I read novels like this, all of the fluffy amazing cuteness that comes with reading contemporary. This one goes deeper than the average cutesy romance though.
My Life Next Door has some underlying issues. Jace and Samantha fall into some real world problems that could ultimately tear them apart.
While Samantha’s family is all about perfection, the Garretts are all about real life. Its almost like reading two different stories when you go from Samantha and her mother to Samantha with the Garretts. It was amazing to see Samantha navigating the crazy, dramatic world of the Garrett’s who took her in as if she was just another one of their children.
It had me laughing and crying at every turn of the page. Jace shows Samantha a side of life she never believed she could have. The more Samantha fell for him the more I did as well!
