Caleb joins many clubs his first semester to find his calling. While Jun has a passion for astronomy, he is following the pre-med path to appease his parents. Andrew is a quiet artist trying to escape his past high school experience and is dragged out of his comfort zones by his overactive roommate, Caleb. Piper is in her final year of college and must confront her mother when Piper is ready to take her relationship with her girlfriend to the next level.
The story is told through the perspective of four college students who are in different years of their college experience. With each chapter, the personality and values of each character shines through helping to create their own distinct voice. I never got confused on who’s perspective I was reading. I also found myself relating to many of the character’s in the book (Andrew’s quiet personality and Jun’s solitary lifestyle).
The romance was believable and easily relatable. There are no overdramatic hurdles the characters must overcome. The hurdles are realistic that the common person has probably experienced something similar. There were sad moments, funny moments, and frustrating moments that completely captivated me. I was eager to find out what would happen next.
I should mention that the book is LGBTQIA with more emphasis on male/male and female/female relationships. This was a fun romance book that my only nitpick is that I wish there were more Andrew chapters.
