The Bridge From Me To You – Lisa Schroeder

Synopsis

Lauren has a secret. Colby has a problem. But when they find each other, everything falls into place.

Lauren is the new girl in town with a dark secret. Colby is the football hero with a dream of something more. In alternating chapters, they come together, fall apart, and build something stronger than either of them thought possible–something to truly believe in.

Review

Just because
it’s written in
verse,

DOESN’T MEAN
IT’S DEEP.

That pretty much sums up this whole book. You can tell it’s trying really hard to be profound/sad/resonant, but the plot, characters, and driving forces are all so shallow. If you track the developments from beginning to end, you would realize that not much wound up happening. So what was the point of this whole book?

I can’t say
that I know what
to tell you
(or that I care).
