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.
