Joel Higgins has 901 unsent text messages saved on his phone.
Ever since the thing that happened, there are certain people he hasn’t been able to talk to in person. Sure, he shows up at school, does his mandatory volunteer hours at the soup kitchen, and spends pretty much every moment thinking about Eli, the most amazing girl in the world. But that doesn’t mean he’s keeping it together, or even that he has any friends.
So instead of hanging out with people in real life, he drafts text messages. But he never presses send.
As dismal as sophomore year was for Joel, he doesn’t see how junior year will be any better. For starters, Eli doesn’t know how he feels about her, his best friend Andy’s gone, and he basically bombed the SATs. But as Joel spends more time at the soup kitchen with Eli and Benj, the new kid whose mouth seems to be unconnected to his brain, he forms bonds with the people they serve there-including a veteran they call Rooster-and begins to understand that the world is bigger than his own pain.
I really enjoyed this book. Was really happy to belong to blog tour for it. This story was good and enjoy the characters on it.
I did like Joel in the book. He has struggles making friends and with school life. His only enjoyment is working in the soup kitchen with a girl he has crash on. It was nice seeing him grow throughout the book. He comes off shy and keeps to himself at most time.
Will Joel ever come out of his shell?
This book was a quick read. A very nice coming age story for Joel. If you looking for a new read or find out is Joel will be alright. Then this book might be for you.
