When misfortune befalls Blake's family, he pulls away, and Ari's world drains of color. As she struggles to get over the breakup, Ari must finally ask herself: were their feelings true love . . . or something else?
My thoughts :I was expecting way more from this book so I'm kind of disappointed ..
Let's start with what I liked about Other Words for Love. I enjoyed reading the evolution of the main character (Ari) and seeing her becoming an adult .. I liked the morale that the book delivers (which I won't tell, otherwise you'll know how it ends). But, I didn't feel connected with the main protagonist : I thought she was sometimes really immature and she infatuated with every single boy she met .. even if it's on purpose, I mean, she has to go through these events in order to grow up .. Besides, there were a lot of passages when nothing really happened and as a consequence I wasn't really hooked to the book ..
I really wanted to love Other Words for Love but unfortunately it was not the case.
