Seriously?!? I cannot even explain how this book ripped my heart out, but somehow made it all right with the ending. It’s a Young Adult story of first loves… forever loves. It’s a roller coaster of emotions that I highly suggest you do NOT read in public (you will cry. just go with it and have tissues on hand).
“I don’t know me without you…”
The synopsis gives nothing away of the magic that’s in the pages of ‘A Thousand Boy Kisses’. While reading it, I started to get a strong feeling as to where the story was headed. I was completely wrong. About all of it. The story line takes a complete detour from where I thought it was going and brings you on a journey that you need to read.
Young love is really so rare. To find your soul mate from a young age…. most say it’s almost impossible. You eventually grow up and become who you were meant to be. You start to drift from certain people. But what if that person you met at such a young age was really who you were meant to spend eternity with?
Rune and Poppy are just two halves of a whole. Circumstances beyond their control will pull them apart and try to change their destiny. In the end, the truth hurts worse than anything Rune could ever imagine. It becomes the toughest thing he’ll ever have to struggle with.
To keep this review spoiler-free, is super hard. The best parts of the story revolve around pieces that I can’t share because you need to experience them the way I did. You need to go in not knowing.

“The biggest tragedy of your life will be you not realizing how amazing you truly are.”
I love the details…. when an author takes the time to make sure to get all the little nuances correct. From the first page with the ‘rape kit’ scenario, Mary Catherine Gebhard reels you in to a story that is built on all aspects of fear that a victim experiences. There are no holds barred. It’s ugly and sad and will make you angry. The one thing it won’t do is make you regret reading it.
“I’m afraid I’ll never be myself again.”
Nami is trying to pick up the pieces of her life after she is raped by a man who is in the public eye. No one believes her. She loses her friends and is forced to go into hiding because the media paints a very ugly picture of her. Nami is a sinking ship in the vast ocean of depression, until Nick Law comes into her life and refuses to give up on her.
The key word in Elastic Heart is Trust. How does someone earn back the ability to trust others? Once you’re stripped of it, you become a shell of a person. That is Nami. Just a shell trying to seek revenge on the person who caused all the damage in her life. Nick comes into her life and tries to show her just how strong she is. Her world fell apart, yet she didn’t crumble. She stood up and kept going when most people would raise their white flag and give up.. on life.
“It was where he held pieces of me I hadn’t known still existed”
This one held my attention from the first page, all the way until the end. It had me second guessing certain characters and not trusting anyone, right along with Nami. I just couldn’t stop reading, once I started.
