The Night We Said Yes by Lauren Gibaldi
Matt and Ella had one amazing night together. They met at a party one night and had an unforgettable evening of saying yes.
Then Matt disappeared. No warning, no excuses…just gone.
When he turns up at a party a year later, Ella has a lot of unanswered questions for him.
In alternating chapters between the past and the present, we learn about first love, friendship and secrets.
I read a review that said this would be great for Sarah Dessen fans. Being a Sarah Dessen fan, I was excited. Unfortunately, I was let down.
I don’t mind alternating viewpoint chapters but I found this to be confusing. I think it was because the only thing different about the viewpoints was if it was last year or this year so I found myself always confused about which one I was reading.
I didn’t find myself caring about the characters. I will say I read this in the middle of a string of YA books that all were based on teenagers and partying so if I had read it at a different time, I might have a different point of view.
Sadly, I was disappointed.
