"What if we could go there? Somewhere that makes us normal? I mean, hypothetically of course. If that place existed, would you want to spend eternity there with me?"
Sadie Bradford’s life is one anxiety attack after another. Being forced to spend a week without her best friend Aaron almost broke her but now he’s back and all she wants is for life to go back to its normal status of being screwed up. That changes when her grandmother makes other plans for her: this summer Sadie will get a job and meet new friends. Friends without brain injuries that make them forget everything. Friends that aren’t Aaron.
While Sadie struggles to survive her anxiety with all these new changes, she and Aaron find the portal to an alternate world. Isola Fiona isn’t just a fun escape—it’s a place that cures memory loss and anxiety. It’s a place where they can fall in love. But no one stays in that world for long and every time they return home, Sadie’s anxiety is a little better but Aaron’s memory is still gone. Frustrated that he doesn’t remember their time together, Aaron makes a rash decision that might ruin everything.
I received this book to give an honest review.
I was really amazed at this story and the way the ending came about. Sadie has severe anxiety and her best friend Aaron helps calm her down even though he has a memory issue. The two are perfect best friends and you just hope that they fall for each other because you just know that has to happen right?
Well things happen to change over the summer Sadie has to live a "normal" life one that doesn't revolve around Aaron and Aaron has to start writing things down so he can remember what he needs to do on a daily basis.
When another world is what I would call it comes into both Sadie and Aaron's life it seems like it is too good to be true, it honestly can not be real right? Isola Fiona just seems like a very amazing place to be at because no matter what issues you had before they are all gone when you enter. The only downside is you can not stay forever or can you?
I loved that in this world Aaron can say how he feels for Sadie and remember when he returns because once back in the real world he doesn't remember which is quite sad.
We see how Sadie juggles her new life while Aaron struggles with not only his memory lose but the issues going on at home. No wonder Isola Fiona seems like the perfect place to be.
The characters were pretty good and I loved how the author really captured how they struggled with the things they had to deal with on a day to day basis.
There are a few things I wish the author would have dived in more on were the world of Isola Finoa we got just a taste on who would have I guess invented this world but why did he exactly? I felt that the author could have elaborated more.
Why didn't Sadie really try to explore Isola Fiona? It was like she mostly seemed to stay in one spot until Finoa had her go through the forest.
