First&Then Book Review


A shitload of feels on this book here. I have no idea how to rate it. Or where to shelf it. Everything the author presented was kind of new to me, I’ve never read anything like it. Originality has always captivated me. Here? Not so much. I really have no idea what to say about it, the story itself was just strictly ‘okay’, put pieces of this book kind of hit me real hard and were really really relatable. And what I noticed is although they were relatable, it felt like Emma Mills was the first author to ever write about them. Some stuff she said made me question the simplest things that happen on a daily-basis but are taken for granted.

Rating not available (sorry)


Devon Tennyson wouldn’t change a thing. She’s happy watching Friday night games from the bleachers, silently crushing on best friend Cas, and blissfully ignoring the future after high school. But the universe has other plans. It delivers Devon’s cousin Foster, an unrepentant social outlier with a surprising talent for football, and the obnoxiously superior and maddeningly attractive star running back, Ezra, right where she doesn’t want them: first into her P.E. class and then into every other aspect of her life.

Pride and Prejudice meets Friday Night Lights in this contemporary novel about falling in love with the unexpected boy, with a new brother, and with yourself.
