Instead, we immediately learn that Finny, the presumed love interest, has passed away in a mysterious car accident, and that our narrator Autumn is left to grapple with her guilt. Despite that I knew there was a *Romeo and Juliet-esque / tragic love story ending, I couldn't help but allow myself to be swept away by Autumn and Finn's story. If you’re worried about giving this book a try because of the heart breaking story please don’t because Nowlin’s gorgeous prose is not one to be missed.

I also knew the closer I got the end what was going to happen but I didn't know that I would be treated to confessions that made my heart burst with happiness even though I knew in a few short pages I knew my heart would break in two. This is the kind of YA title that makes a difference with its deep emotionality and lingering takeaways.

I keep thinking about the miscommunication between them, the love Finn always had for Autumn, and how neither of them knew what the other truly meant to them.

Both characters need each other to move on from their issues but disaster strikes and everything changes. Told through Autumn’s perspective, the story takes readers through a journey of a teenager battling with internal and societal expectations. I see Sylvie sitting sideways out of the back of the policeman's car, her feet drumming on the wet pavement as she talks. At first it’s like a niggling at the back of her mind, which she continues to throw away and just focus on the good things happening in her life at the moment, but the further she goes through school and seeing Finn all the time bring several feelings of anger, betrayal, love, and loneliness which are continuously eating away at her until it all becomes too much. I watched Autumn shut down towards the end completely and totally understanding the reasoning as though I was reading it through a young woman's mind.That still doesn't stop the way Autumn feels every time she and Finn cross paths, and the growing, nagging thought that maybe things could have been different.

I never had an overwhelming urge to drop the book and start a new one, thankfully, but it could just be slightly boring at times. The writing was monotonous, which could be an attempt to explain Autumn’s mentality, but instead made the book feel flat. You know where the story will end with the never-ending sense of dread in Autumn's narrative; it's no surprise. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Parents Need to Know that If He Had Been with Me by Laura Nowlin is a teen romance/coming-of-age novel.When she isn’t at home agonizing over her own novels, Laura works at the public library, where the patrons give her plenty of inspiration for her writing. It’s a story which deals with issues of friendship, first loves and family in the most raw and intense way I have come across in a long time. In the summer after graduation, Autumn and Finny reconnect and are finally ready to be more than friends.
