Stevie Rosenstein has never made a true friend. Never fallen in love. Moved from city to city by her father’s unrelenting job, it’s too hard to care for someone. Trust in anything. The pain of leaving always hurts too much. But she’ll soon learn to trust, to love.
Drew and Shane have been best friends through everything. The painful death of Shane’s dad. The bitter separation of Drew’s parents. Through sleepaway camps and family heartache, basketball games and immeasurable loss, they’ve always been there for each other.
When Stevie meets Drew and Shane, life should go on as normal.
But a simple coin toss alters the course of their year in profound and unexpected ways.
Told in dual timelines, debut author Jennie Wexler delivers a heartbreaking and hopeful novel about missed opportunities, second chances, and all the paths that lead us to where we are.
Where It All Lands by Jennie Wexler is a heartbreaking young adult novel. A young woman has a lot happening in her life. What she never knew was that two guys flipped a coin to determine who would ask her out. Only the one guy who loved her before the coin toss never got to tell her how he felt. I should have realized their relationship was deeper than just friends. They had this connection that not everyone has. When the guys get to arguing, the heroine overhears their coin toss argument. From there, it gets more intense and worse. The dialogue was great. Jennie Wexler is a pro at creating an epic roller-coaster ride that is emotional deep. The highs and lows will cause havoc on one’s heart strings like it did to mine. I was not expecting such a deep read. I did enjoy this journey and loved the ending. The friends-to-lover theme worked. It was a romance novel but at the same time it wasn’t. Because the emotional feels and the unexpected events made it so much more…
