Well, I guess I can't seem to get away from those "Romeo & Juliet" type of stories...haha; however, I enjoyed reading Before You. The two main characters, Faith and Diego, are from two different worlds, especially in high school. The story definitely touched on several, very real issues that today's youth deal with every day in school.
Told in both Faith and Diego's points of view (POV), we get a personal view of their lives and the secrets they keep. Nothing is what it seems on the surface, as we come to find out as they deal with their personal "demons." I really loved their chemistry. As their attraction unraveled, it becomes apparent that the obstacles they face can't keep them apart. The story's journey was also strengthened by the supporting characters which also added to the teenage angst that high school kids experience. Moreover, Before You has some added twists and action to its story...it's not just a love story...haha!
Although I found the story interesting as it also touches on very real topics of today's youths, I did find it predictable and stereotypical. The story starts off slow, but then, it gets interesting as the plot twist(s) and the romance unravels. Moreover, Before You was a beautiful love story with an interesting plot twist, considering it was also predictable and filled with clichés. I wasn't totally in love with the story. It was just okay.
Again, these are just my thoughts on this book; however, readers that enjoy stories like these may love it.
