What does it really mean to be kind . . . and why does it sometimes feel like the hardest thing in the world to do? High school senior Kendall, who just returned from a life-changing semester in Europe, and Max, who is drifting his way through a gap year before college, struggle with these questions when they witness a tragic accident in New York City during the holiday season. Racked with guilt, the two accept a dare to perform random acts of kindness to strangers. The challenge pulls these two teens, who have a history together from back home, closer and closer as they explore a vibrant city filled with other people’s stories and secrets.
Kendall and Max can’t deny their growing bond, even though they both have other romantic entanglements and uncertain futures. As the clock counts down on New Year’s Eve, will they find themselves together at midnight?
I thought this was adorable holiday romance. I really thought it was quick read and I really loved the structure of the book. I thought the characters were compelling and I loved all the various POV we got but I would have liked more from the characters we saw in one chapter. I am also a sucker for accomplishing a mission books in YA novels. It was super fun read and I read it so fast. I thought that characters were relatable and it did address harder issues but the issues addressed could have been clearer. I also wanted a stronger ending and one that gave me closure! But I would def read this this holiday season when it comes out in Jan!
Later book lovers!
