Best Kind of Broken by Chelsea Fine
Have tissues handy. This love story is about characters who have had a tough road and are learning how to survive it. Levi is the quarterback of his college football team. Sarah is an artist in the local community college trying to escape life into a bigger school. Levi’s sister and Sarah’s best friend, Charity died the year before and after both being hurt in that car accident they have avoided each other for most of the previous year.
Chelsea knows how to create characters that you can come to care about and relate to. The book has two narrators with both protagonists taking turns telling portions of the story – but it isn’t done in a confusing way. Each time a change happens there is a change in chapter with it clearly labeled who is speaking and a continual flow to the story.
Admittedly I’ve been sick this week and needed a good cry but this was a good book for it. It has the sweet romance, but not in a sickly sweet way, its in the honest in your face real life love. Love isn’t perfect, it doesn’t fix everything but God knows reach for it when its available or you might not have time. We don’t know how their story ends really, but that is life isn’t it? You never really know where life will take you. Just hold on to life by the horns and be willing to give it your all, through the anger and the pain – fight it out – life and love is worth it.
