5 Star #Review #Giveaway of Finding Mr. Brightside by @jaypatrickclark

Abram and Juliette know each other. They’ve lived down the street from each other their whole lives. But they don’t really know each other—at least, not until Juliette’s mom and Abram’s dad have a torrid affair that culminates in a deadly car crash. Sharing the same subdivision is uncomfortable, to say the least. They don’t speak.

Fast-forward to the neighborhood pharmacy, a few months later. Abram decides to say hello. Then he decides to invite her to Taco Bell. To her surprise as well as his, she agrees. And the real love story begins.
 
 About the Author

Biography

Jay Clark is the author of Finding Mr. Brightside, which author Jerry Spinelli (Stargirl) calls "one of my favorite YA books ever," and The Edumacation of Jay Baker, which Booklist praised in a starred review: "The magic lies in the telling." He's also a random blogger. Surprisingly popular entries like "How to stop hating people in 21 minutes" and "8 tips for posting your best selfie yet!" can be found on his website: jayclarkbooks.com. 

When he isn't writing, Jay enjoys thinking seriously about getting a golden retriever puppy but then having second thoughts about it, playing tennis as if something important is at stake, and complaining about his monthly Starbucks expenses when they're fully within his control. He lives in Columbus, Ohio.   




Ok 1. COVER LOVE!!!!  I have to say I am in love with this cover!!  I wish the ARC I had would have had this pretty cover on it.  :( sad face.

Ok so this one was kind of a messed up book if you ask me.  But it was very good!!  The teens in this one have some major issues to deal with.  Their parents had a torrid affair that lead to their deaths.  If you ask me it was kinda karma!  I mean if you fall out of love with your spouse end it don't put everyone through the crap of cheating.  But ya know thats just my two cents.  

Ok so this story is told in alternating POVs which worked out very well.  You get to experience each characters pain and and happiness.  

This one was a very good stand alone.  And I really thought I was going to hate it.  But ended up loving the crap out of it.  This book really makes you see the struggles of ending up falling for someone you blamed for a tragic accident.  

Ugh trying to figure out what else to say without giving to much away.  Just know that this is one that is somewhat hard to get through but is so worth it. 

 Go Into This One Knowing 
Death, Pills, and Awesomeness!

Weirdest place? I think it would be finding it in a hospital. I HATE HOSPITALS. GIVE ME THE CREEPS EVERY TIME I VISIT! So I would definitely find it weird.
