Our lives are a collection of moments. Some utterly painful and full of yesterday's hurts. Some beautifully hopeful and full of tomorrow's promises.
I've had many moments in my lifetime, moments that changed me, challenged me. Moments that scared me and engulfed me. However, the biggest ones - the most heartbreaking and breathtaking ones - all included him.
I was 10 years old when I lost my voice. A piece of me was stolen away, and the only person who could truly hear my silence was Brooks Griffin. He was the light during my dark days, the promise of tomorrow, until tragedy found him. Tragedy that eventually drowned him in a sea of memories.
This is the story of a boy and girl who loved each other, but didn't love themselves. A story of life and death. Of love and broken promises.

A TRAGIC ROAD LEADS TO A BEAUTIFUL LOVE STORY
Wow.. I wasn't expecting quite such a moving, heartbreaking, beautiful, profound, powerful and breathtaking story as this as an innocent 10 year old Maggie May humorously plans her wedding to her brother's unwilling 11 year old best friend Brooks with hilarious letters, quick-witted banter and amusing inner thoughts. But before the naive "I do's" tragedy strikes which will sentance Maggie May to 18 years of terror provoked silence, 18 years of loneliness tethered to her house by a child's fear of one very real demon, 18 years of a household under immense strain that'll eventually split loving parents up.. and 18 frustrating years where both joy and heartache will be felt over loving and losing Brooks.
And Brooks grew up being a good friend to Maggie, her anchor, a shoulder for her to cry on and her rock. Over the years that friendship turned into an unconditional beautiful love - but Brooks destiny was to become a successful Rock Musician.. and Fate wasn't finished with throwing obstacles in this couples way - and then it would be Brooks that would be drowning and need saving.
This book was a deep and emotionally draining listen and I was riveted to every word wondering what the next chapter would reveal. Brittainy C. Cherry has written an epic tale of a little girl's fear and anxiety after witnessing something horrific and her ongoing debilitating psychological daily battle will touch many lives and have far reaching consequences. It's not an easy feel good listen.. but it is totally addictive, unpredictable and an unforgettable one where pain will eventually be replaced by pleasure and tears will eventually be replaced by a wonderful friendship, a passionate love.. and a fairy book ending. All the secondary characters had a part to play in this love story and all of Brittainy's characters were awesome. Great dual POV narration.
Worth A Credit? Absolutely it's amazing. And all I can finally add is experience its awesomeness for yourselves, be touched by a beautiful love story that'll tear you apart and then stitch you together again, immerse yourselves as tender feelings turn into romantic declarations and fall in love with these loveable characters.. they're waiting.

I COULD NOT FINISH BUT ITS ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I can tell from the first half of the book that it is excellent but I just can not handle sad books. The book is narrated superbly and the story is great. I will go back and finish but there is enough sadness in the world I'll keep my books hot dirty and sexy. If you like a tear jerker you will love it
