Can you want something—or someone—so badly that it changes your destiny? Elyse Schmidt never would have thought so, until it happened to her. When Elyse and her not-so-secret crush, Josh Harris, are the sole survivors of a plane crash, tragedy binds them together. It’s as if their love story is meant to be. Everything is perfect, as perfect as it can be when you’ve literally fallen out of the sky and landed hard on the side of a mountain—until suddenly it isn’t. When the pieces of Elyse’s life stop fitting together, what’s left? You Are the Everything is a story about the fates we yearn for, the fates we choose, and the fates that are chosen for us.
You Are The EverythingFeatured
As a result of the crash, Elyse suffers from Traumatic Brain Injury and has trouble remembering things. Josh is patient through it all, even when Elyse grows emotional. Elyse also has a glass eye from the wreck, but Josh believes she's as beautiful as ever. Everything seems perfect.... until the end.
This was probably the hardest review to write without giving spoilers. It was also the first book that I've ever written in second point of view. While I prefer first or third, it was refreshing to step out of my comfort zone. If you're looking for a contemporary romance that's different from any other book you've ever read, this one is for you. Karen Rivers address several topics in this like interracial dating, plane crash survivors, and the struggles of traumatic brain injury.
Final Verdict: I would recommend this to fans of contemporary romance, unique plots and writing style, and emotional reads that address sensitive topics and diverse characters.
