Smart girls aren't supposed to do stupid things. Madelyn Hawkins is super smart. At sixteen, she's so gifted that she can attend college through a special program at her high school. On her first day, she meets Bennet. He's cute, funny, and kind. He understands Madelyn and what she's endured—and missed out on—in order to excel academically and please her parents. Now, for the first time in her life, she's falling in love. There's only one problem. Bennet is Madelyn's college professor, and he thinks she's eighteen—because she hasn't told him the truth. The story of their forbidden romance is told in letters that Madelyn writes to Bennet—both a heart-searing ode to their ill-fated love and an apology.

I think that Amanda Grace did a good job of painting the picture of how it started, and trying to show that Bennett aka ...
The Truth About You and Me is different, but different in such a good way. It is a long letter written by Madelyn to Bennett. In the letter she tells the story of how their relationship began, and how everything crumbled apart. From the outset you know the outcome of the relationship but it never le...
“You might not read this, but maybe they will, and maybe somehow that will help you. This letter can’t help us, because there is no us, not anymore.”Reading a book formatted in the form of a letter was…unique. There are no chapters, no breaks; I really kind of liked it. The story told felt like I...
