This romance between best friends Remi and Elijah is intriguing and charming. The issues are realistic and emotional. The relationship, it's mishaps, it's obstacles, and it's ultimate progression are wonderfully done.
A first time author, I'm very impressed with the author's writing. She does a fantastic job capturing the voice of the characters, and excels in her storytelling process. Making things even better, the parents actually contribute to this story, and they do so in a wonderful way. Told in first person pov, the reader is easily drawn into Remi and her emotions. Everything develops nicely and I adore the way everything wraps up in the end.
Overall, the book is developed in a manner that fully pulls the reader in, and executed with the reader feeling everything the main character feels. Real situations, dimensional characters, and plenty of likeable secondary characters make this a story to love.
I always enjoy a great young adult romance, and this is definitely going on my re-read list. What Are Friends For? sucked me in with it's charm and I found myself having to read it in one sitting. I love it all and am excited to see what Sarah Sutton writes next.
