A Thousand Splendid Suns Classics. Crawford had a scholarship for football. A full ride. We had never been apart. This is it. Crawford shrugged. He was right, of course. He always was. When he and Vale meet, she can't deny the flutter of an illicit attraction. Seeing him like this was so hard. The doctor believed he needed to hear several voices he knew and loved. But as the days progressed, her schedule had started to change as her health went downhill. Seeing her only child like this day in and day out was weighing on her.
Still here? Normally it was one of my older brothers coming to check on me. Knox, my youngest older brother, was closest in age to Crawford and me, and he came to read, too. Not every day like me, but when he could. I was hoping he would come today. I lifted my head to meet a pair of dark green eyes outlined by thick black lashes—pretty eyes for a guy.
But we had never spoken. His voice was smooth, but there was a thicker drawl to his accent than most of the guys had in Franklin. He almost sounded Alabama-ish. Was he studying me or was he waiting on me to speak? Probably the latter. I was being rude not responding.
Nowhere else to be, I said honestly. Because without Crawford I was lost. He lifted the corner of his full lips and it looked a lot like a smirk. Why would he be smirking at something like this? But Uncle D is where my loyalty lies. So here I am. I wondered if he was even upset about his uncle being here. Not that it was my business. The guy had an air about him that rubbed me the wrong way. He liked himself. A lot. He knew he was beautiful and he liked the attention it got him.
Your selflessness humbles me, I replied with a heavy dash of sarcasm. His long dark hair was a little messy and tucked behind his ears. I imagined it would complete his pirate look if he had it pulled back in a ponytail. That was never my intention at all. Nothing deeper than that. Selflessness is your thing. Not mine.

What kind of year was I in for? Not even a little. Everly Adali Lane was five feet nine inches tall with blond hair that fell down her back, and blue eyes that were as dark as the ocean, unlike my light blue. She was also a princess. This book really surprised me.
I would first like to point out that the blurb on the back of the book and also on Goodreads does not match the plot. That really confused me but i can look past that for now. This book is told in two parts and to be honest, I really wish the book was just a continuation of part one because part two made absolutely no sense to me and mad 2.

I guess I've been hesitant because you know, Rush. Vale and Crawford have been together since they were six years old. They're involved in a car wreck the night of graduation and Crawford is in a coma with Vale at his side as much as his mother will allow. Time passes and she meets Slate who's at the hospital to see his Uncle who has cancer. Slate is actually in the same fraternity as Vale's brother. Slate tries talking to her and brings her coffee but she's not really interested. That is, until she finds out that Slate has been reading to Crawford and Crawford is responding.
She feels she should at least be Slate's friend. Eventually, her family and friends convince her to get on with her life and go to college. This is when her and Slate become very close No one can believe it because Slate has been such the player. I loved the angst whenever Vale would see Slate with a girl or when Slate would see Vale with someone.
I especially loved how much it affected Slate. Thankfully, they finally decide to start dating and well, we all know where that leads. I just didn't really care for this part even if the "twist" was unique. I guess I just wanted the first part to keep going. And I really didn't care for Crawford at all! However, I did enjoy the play on certain characters and how some people are just meant to be together! This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

Feb 25, Stacee added it Shelves: read-in , dnf , physical-arc. Vale has a lot of potential. Plot wise, not much happened in the parts that I read.
Oh, there was a lot of girls throwing themselves at Slate, a lot of girls calling other girls sluts and whores, and a lot of talk of sex and blow jobs. I was bored and had no connection to any of the characters. If I were to rate it from what I read, it would be one star. View all 6 comments.

But then the unthinkable happens, Crawford wakes up Part one had me in love, I was head over heels for this story and the characters. It was lighting fireworks off in my head. However, when part two rolled around, I wanted to cry out in frustration. That big twist was not necessary and the rest of it was just rushed.
It brought nothing to the plot and just complicated everything. I would gladly recommend part one to everyone, I mean that part is well worth the read. Just maybe don't read part two.

My mind was playing through all the fun things we would see and do. Like they were drinking and partying to forget the fact we"re adults now. Slowly, they form a cautious friendship. They were supposed to spend the summer planning for college, for a bright future full of possibility. We had never been apart. That all our dreams were still there, waiting just outside the door of this lonely, cold place. This is it. And, in parting from you now, Thus much let me avow— You are not wrong, who deem That my days have been a dream; Yet if hope has flown away In a night, or in a day, In a vision, or in none, Is it therefore the less gone?
