Lena Rose Winter was a typical seventeen year old girl, or so everyone thought. She had a hated secret and she knew what love was, but she dreaded it. Liam Christopher Black was far from your typical bad boy. He was a good guy, the one who would sit at the back of the class, not making a sound. His family dying in a car crash cost him his voice. Lena knew becoming friends with someone was a great risk because you could always end up caring too much. But still, she fought for the boy and his friendship but they ended up falling for each other. Hard. It seemed as if the world didn't want them together as they faced struggle after struggle to beat the odds. But will the risks be enough for their relationship to survive? Amidst the trials and bad experiences, will both of them learn to truly love again?

I love how this books has a lot of twists and turns, and how their relationship builds up and doesn't really go fast forward. You kind of feel the momentum of how everything feels for them, feels for you, and then there are all these feels that you can't get over. I just loved it

"A Unique Kind Of Love" is completely enchanting, i loved that book from the first word to the last.
it sounds stupid to say it but this book really changed my life, it made think about life in a very special and different way, it made me feel love and appreciate it, it made me think about how much i achieved with my family and my beloved people, AUKOL is an amazing experience and i recommand this book for everyone because i'm sure it will have an impact on you somehow.
i really liked the characters and how they're feelings and thoughts were described, they somehow still live somewhere in my mind ( that's crazy to say, lol)
i don't have enough words to tell you how great is this book but i'm sure you'll understand me once you read it :)

17-year old perpetual new girl Lena Rose Winter moves wherever her mother's job takes their family of two. Her mobile lifestyle, coupled with her tragic history, keeps her from connecting with people. Her natural beauty and wit, however, always gets people's attention - including that of hot, mysterious classmate Liam Christopher Black.

Liam, an orphan who has no one left in his life but his grandmother, bears his own scars. The loss of his family in an accident has left him unable to speak. The two teenagers connect immediately, quickly becoming best friends. Through the challenges of fitting in at school, to the larger twists and turns of the real world, Liam and Lena's truly "Unique Kind of Love" conquers them all.

Jasmine Rose's A Unique Kind of Love is a sweet, little contemporary young adult romance with all the right ingredients: likeable characters, teenage angst, drama and humor. It hits the right emotional notes too, not unlike the mellow contemporary pop songs it quotes and seems to have drawn inspiration from, including works byHarry Styles, Christina Perri and Ed Sheeran.

If you need a little break from the sea of dystopian and paranormal YA books that are out there, A Unique Kind of Love may be just the book for you. Its clever teenage cast of characters might not be heroes bearing the weight of the world, but it's a little reminder that family, young love and romance in the high school setting is a struggle too.
