REVIEW: The Idea of You by Robinne Lee
"Hello August Moon" are the first three words of my favorite Michael Jackson song, but they mean so much more now.
OK, so here I am. It's 6 in the morning and I just finished reading The Idea of You. I'm sobbing and my heart feels so heavy.
First of all, Mrs. Robinne Lee sure does have a way with words. Her writing style pulled me in and it felt like I was there. At every concert and in every hotel room during every conversation. Solene and Hayes made me laugh and cry, they made me angry and happy. I was on edge one minute, excited or nervous about what might happen next. At one point my mother approached me in the living room sometime last week and asked why I was gripping the side of the couch so hard. I told her I was reading, but she still looked confused. The next minute, I was relaxed. Smiling to myself or laughing out loud at something one of the characters had said.
I have to admit that it took a bit longer than usual for me to finish this book, but only because I looked forward to reading a bit more of it each day. I knew that after the stress of finishing up a 4-8 page essay for school, that I had The Idea of You to look forward to. I never wanted it to end, and now that it’s over, I don’t know how to feel.
Please, read this story so you can experience all of the same emotions that I have. I love the characters in this story just like I love my own mother, and no, I'm not exaggerating. These characters are in my heart now, and they’re going to be there forever. A really good story always sticks with you.
