A modern play on the Cinderella story arc, Christina June’s IT STARTED WITH GOODBYE shows us that sometimes going after what you want means breaking the rules.
Christina June writes young adult contemporary fiction when she’s not writing college recommendation letters during her day job as a school counselor. She is a voracious reader, loves to travel, eats too many cupcakes, and hopes to one day be bicoastal – the east coast of the US and the east coast of Scotland. She lives just outside Washington DC with her husband and daughter.
It Started with Goodbye was such a fantastic read! This was such a fun take on the Cinderella story that explores the complexities of family, love and change. I also really love that Tatum is such a well developed character! She is so dimensional and felt so real like I really wanted her to be my best friend! The plot was realistic and the conflicts in this story are something that could actually happen. This was a book that made me laugh and made me think all at the same time. Overall this book was so fantastic and I would absolutely recommend this book to everyone!
