I liked this book. The plot and characters were good. They had depth and acted in reasonable ways. The main characters are really young, but we saw them mature. I loved how the title was woven into the plot. I hope this isn't a spoiler, but the characters did spend lots of time apart. I especially liked Val's trajectory and the life she built for herself. I'm glad Val's parents weren't true villains. That is too often the case and usually isn't necessary. I also liked Olivia's coming of age, but somehow I wasn't as invested in it, but I did like her life and how she also built it for herself, for the most part. I just wish the author had shown more of Olivia's aspect as a writer. We know she writes, but we don't really see it happen. This is a romance between new adults that have both been formed by their life experiences. I have hope for them and confidence in their future together.
I listened to the audiobook version and really enjoyed it. The narrator is really good and makes the characters come alive. There were a few errors in the writing and a few pronunciation errors (realization, anecdotes) but much less than I've come to expect. There were a few instances where I turned to the ebook version to make out what was said, but that's probably more a flaw in my listening than in the writing or narration.
