Sticks & Stones

“Was there really any doubt? I told you we had chemistry, princess.”

In this adorable YA novel, we are introduced to our main characters Eli and Darcie. While they may not seem totally compatible on the outside, they quickly find out that people are not always what they seem to be on the inside.

I thought I had grown out of the YA genre, but I was proved wrong by this book. I thoroughly enjoyed it and appreciated how authentic it was. The author was able to accurately portray real struggles for families and that despite how much money you have, everyone goes through their own battles.

I particularly enjoyed our enemies-to-friends-back-to-enemies-to-lovers tale. The banter between Eli and Darcie was so fun; between that and text-based dialogue, this book was so easy to finish in a night.

I am so thankful to Santana Blair for allowing be to be a part of her ARC team and hooking me up with a free copy of her book (as well as a note and a beautiful bookmark). This book was truly so good and if you’re looking for a cute and quick read, this is the book for you!

Book Rating: 4/5

Spice Rating: 3/5 [for YA genre]
