Description on Goodreads:

Day 1: Julia Donnelly eggs my house my first night back in Star Lake, and that’s how I know everyone still remembers everything—how I destroyed my relationship with Patrick the night everything happened with his brother, Gabe. How I wrecked their whole family. Now I’m serving out my summer like a jail sentence: Just ninety-nine days till I can leave for college, and be done.

Day 4: A nasty note on my windshield makes it clear Julia isn’t finished. I’m expecting a fight when someone taps me on the shoulder, but it’s just Gabe, home from college and actually happy to see me. “For what it’s worth, Molly Barlow,” he says, “I’m really glad you’re back.”

Day 12: Gabe got me to come to this party, and I’m actually having fun. I think he’s about to kiss me—and that’s when I see Patrick. My Patrick, who’s supposed to be clear across the country. My Patrick, who’s never going to forgive me.

Review:

Well. This is one whopper of a book. I did not expect to like this book as much as I did. When I first recieved it from the wonderful Heather Doss at Harper, (thank you again!), I was skeptical. Very skeptical. I know How to Love had been hyped quiiitteee a bit on Twitter and on Booktube… but I had heard very little about 99 Days. Heck, part of me forgot it was even coming out.

This book will live up to any of the hype it gets. Despite some iffy subject matter, I really enjoyed this book. I flew through it, and while I did have some problems with a few characters, the over all development was nice. The story building was nice, and a bit refreshing. It’s been a little bit since I read it; and I still find myself thinking about Molly.

I really found myself emotionally charged and invested in the story. I still want more! I need to know! I felt like a teen again, caught in what felt like “real life” was. It actually motivated me to grab her first book!

This book comes out on the 21st!

My Rating: 4/5

Would I/Who would I recommend it (too): Anyone who needs a good reminder of youth/Loves drama/Loves soap operas.
