    I am emotional wreck I felt like my throat not only filled with cotton balls, but it seemed like at least 3000 acres cotton land invaded my entire body Eyes are red rimmed, nose is like tomato juice bloody red and runny and my cruel heart is broken into pieces Dear Lia Louis, what have you done to me I loved this story so much and I wish it could be adapted into screen I can already visualize the billboards at the streets chanting for Team Lucas or Team Eliot This is one of the be I am emotional wreck I felt like my throat not only filled with cotton balls, but it seemed like at least 3000 acres cotton land invaded my entire body Eyes are red rimmed, nose is like tomato juice bloody red and runny and my cruel heart is broken into pieces Dear Lia Louis, what have you done to me I loved this story so much and I wish it could be adapted into screen I can already visualize the billboards at the streets chanting for Team Lucas or Team Eliot This is one of the best second changes, facing with your past to reborn from your ashes and searching for happiness book There are so many great Brat Pack movies vibes from Say Anything to Sixteen Candles , weird movie references mashes with brave metoo movement representation.This book is sweet, swoony and cute but it also moving, heart wrenching, soul crushing, tear jerking Normally I hate love triangles and characters indecisiveness about their own feelings, that s why this book starts like a three stars I didn t love it but I didn t hate it, too story for me but as I start moving back and forth between past and present, seeing those beautiful messages at the mixed tapes, slow burn romantic moments, past regrets, future s stumbling, present s struggles, the characters flaws, their heartfelt story start growing on me I couldn t put it down and I let myself get lost in their beautiful, complex relationship Emmie looks for a real family, neglected by her mother throughout her teenage years, abandoned by her father, outcast of her school, being judged by her friends for something she didn t do She really needs someone stand by her and hold her hand as a confidante, a real, honest friend And she is only 16 It is not fair to be in some much pain in those ages, forced to face the shitty hand life had dealt you So Emmie Blue releases a balloon with her email address and her big secret into the sky and Lucas finds her balloon That s the part their 14 years long friendship started Now Emmie thinks she s head over heels in love with Lucas and he meets with her to ask one of his most important questions of his life But no he didn t ask to be his wife, he asks her to be his best man and Emmie accepts it Whattttt Yes, this is big mistake and I want to kidnap Emmie to prevent her obvious heartbreak and suffer You may think this is angsty, edgy and irritatingly torturous story and you ask yourself why Emmie accepts his offer that was the moment I thought I should have given three stars but don t you dare to stop reading till meeting with Lucas half brother Eliot, always protective, kind, but also witty, sarcastic with amazing taste in music Emmie has always complex feelings about Eliot and she still resents him what he s done when she was 19 But nothing as it seems Emmie should change the way to look at you re her life because sometimes people may be blind enough to see things in front of them Emmie slowly understands she is not lonely She is loved and she is cared deeply and now it s time to get her head out of her ass I think this book could be named like this, because most of the characters are acting like blind, especially at some parts I wanted to scream at Emmie to open her eyes because some clues were so obvious and she was so stubborn to believe in wrong things about herself and people who deeply cared for her And I adored the supporting characters, especially Rosie Kalwar needs her own book, her witty comments, carefree, artistic, genuine attitude and her honest sense of humor made me laugh and love herAnd let s not forget the sweetpie Louise There are two heroes and it is obvious who I m rooting for Especially chapter 41 made me cry out loud I m not giving you the spoilers but that character I rooted for passed the best book boyfriend exam with flying colors And ending was also sweet, emotional, inspiring, promising Overall I m still cutting off half star because of the characters obnoxious actions but this book already stole my heart so let s round up 4.5 stars to 5 and keep smiling for the heart melting story the author created for us Special thanks to NetGalley and double special thanks to Atria Books Emily Bestler Books because I got both digital and hardcover copies for sharing this amazing ARC with me in exchange my honest review It melt my heart and healed my soul bloginstagramfacebooktwitter

    4 5 stars rounded to 4 starsWhat a great debut novel this is Being in the midst of two once in a lifetime crises in our country, plus having a sick kitty, and also undergoing a complicated prosthetic hip revision all at once, I chose something a bit lighter to distract me from life This one fit the bill perfectly.Emmie is 30 years old and is basically lost in terms of where her life is going She has a crappy mother, an unknown father, a low level job, a rented room with a cold landlady, an 4 5 stars rounded to 4 starsWhat a great debut novel this is Being in the midst of two once in a lifetime crises in our country, plus having a sick kitty, and also undergoing a complicated prosthetic hip revision all at once, I chose something a bit lighter to distract me from life This one fit the bill perfectly.Emmie is 30 years old and is basically lost in terms of where her life is going She has a crappy mother, an unknown father, a low level job, a rented room with a cold landlady, and some nasty baggage from the past Not only that, her best of a very few friends, who she loves, is marrying another woman Well, blah, right Her best friend, Lucas, is a great guy He has even asked her to be his best woman at his wedding Emmie met him after she had launched a balloon with a sad message off the British coast, and Lucas found it an ocean away in France They were both 16 years old at the time Lucas emailed Emmie, they got together and became very close Lucas is all Emmie believes she has Could things be any worse now that he has asked someone else to marry him This storyline may sound kind of chick litty, but I thought this was actully a wonderful character study of Miss Emmie Blue.Ms Louis does a great job developing the story of Emmie and Lucas with the aid of flashbacks that nicely complement what is going on in present time Emmie and Lucas are both extremely likeable, and it s heartbreaking that they are not apparently headed to the alter together But then there are other characters in this story who are out to help Emmie I especially loved her only girlfriend, Rosie, her distant landlady, Lousie, and Lucas older brother Eliot The narrative starts off a bit slowly, which cost star, but it gained momentum quickly thereafter The book is telling us that no matter how lousy life gets, it can get better, much better, if you don t give up And don t forget the good things that can be sitting there right in front of you, which can help you move forward I think this is a really important takeaway, especially in the times we are living in today It s so easy to toss in the towel when things look hopeless, but hard as it is, you have to keep going And sometimes you are richly rewarded for doing so.I found Dear Emmie Blue a comforting and inspiring read If that description interests you, please give this one a try I am already on the lookout for whatever Ms Louis comes up with next.I would like to thank Atria Books, Net Galley, and Ms Lia Louis for offering me an ARC of this book Opinions are mine alone and are not biased in any way

And, of course, if all these misunderstandings and noble little sacrifices hadn t been there to begin with, we would have had a very short and bland novel I had a hard time putting this book down The writing was witty and engaging, and the characters were all people I enjoyed spending time with This is the author s second published novel I suspect she will get better with each new publication Her voice is so distinctive and charming I m going to rate this a 4.8 out of 5
