#BookReview: Underneath the Sycamore Tree by B. Celeste

Synopsis: Time is a luxury we don't all have...

Emery Matterson's life has been broken for a while. First, she lost her twin sister to an incurable autoimmune disease, then her father left, then her mother fell apart when Emery herself was diagnosed with the same disease that killed her sister. The only option for Emery seems to be to move in with the father she hasn’t seen in ten years, and start over.

Enter Kaiden Monroe, the brooding athlete who has baggage of his own. Kaiden makes Emery feel normal. Hated. Cared for. Loathed. And...loved. Somewhere along the way, Emery finds solace in the guy with the sad eyes.

But everything happens in stages. And nothing good ever lasts.

From fan-favorite author B. Celeste comes an raw, real, and unforgettable story of love and loss between two young people grappling with the harsh reality of invisible disease.


Rating: 2 Stars
My Review: I grabbed this one because someone said it was like Colleen Hoover.  So of course I jumped on that one.  Sadly it let me down.  It felt kind of like a mash of up of things like Five Feet Apart for adults.  And the romance was kind of weird.  I think that for me this just wasn't my type of story.  


 Anunforgettable and phenomenal story that deals with the harsh truth and realityof invisible diseases. B. Celeste's writing is impeccable and Underneath theSycamore Tree is the kind of book that stands the test of time. Author Micalea Smeltzer 
I thought I knew what I was getting into withthis book and although I came close, this author simply blew me and my feelingsaway. It is uncomfortable and raw. Blissful and sweet. Full of pain and sorrow.Full of love and full of life. ~ Sue'sRomance Reviews
