When We Collided Book Review

Book review(

Maybe we were dying roots, Jonah, being drawn into the darkness. When we collided, we bounced each other back into orbit. And now we have to do that-we have to return to our own paths because that’s what we gave each other.

Yeah, it’s that kind of book.
Filled with vibrant metaphors and intriguing concepts. Although the cover itself is captivating and beautiful, it is not just that. I’ve never been good at reading or analyzing art, any form of it. But the cover, I think, is the story itself. The beautiful chaos of two persons colliding. It says a lot, that cover.
This is not your typical contemporary book. I think the writer did a great job at offering a story that is innovative without adding the element of fantasy, dystopia, or sci fi into it. I am no author. But I have tried writing, like any other reader out there, and I believe that bringing a unique contemporary book into life calls for a lot of hard work, to say the least. Especially if the writer dodges undesirable cliches. I think, what made this book, and many others of the same genre, a good one, is the fact that the author proposed a sci fi world without really changing the genre, or a fantastical one also without changing the genre. And how’s that, you’d ask, through metaphors.
But that’s enough talking about the writing.
The story itself started off as a typical one. But shaping the characters into what they’ve become, was just overwhelming.




We are seventeen and shattered and still dancing. We have messy, throbbing hearts, and we are stronger than anyone could ever know…

Jonah never thought a girl like Vivi would come along.

Vivi didn’t know Jonah would light up her world.

Neither of them expected a summer like this…a summer that would rewrite their futures.

In an unflinching story about new love, old wounds, and forces beyond our control, two teens find that when you collide with the right person at just the right time, it will change you forever.
