boy Tyler falls in love Boy tries to help her She gets pissed because boy hides some secrets Boy leaves She regrets Boy comes back She s happy Shit happens and they re happy again This book had a lot of potential HONESTLY. Where to start.The beginning of the book indicates that Mackenzie has a normal relationship with her mom Mackenzie s mom is also not the controlling or annoying mom I thought she was just being a normal mom We learn in the beginning that her Anorexia is caused by her parents divorce Suddenly we learn that Mackenzie become an anorexic because of her mom s hateful words during a fight with her dad Mackenzie s dad seems absent in her life as if he abandoned her, but he pops out of nowhere Spends a lot of time with her and blablabla The story is just ALL OVER THE PLACE.Mackenzie never dated Tyler They didn t even have each other phone numbers They hung out 3 times before he left Suddenly they are so in love She is so heart broken when he leaves They have a long distance relationship They write letters to each other WTF happened to phones Skype The insta romance was so unrealistic I could not feel their connection at all There was not connection to begin with All they know about each other is their favorite color..favorite foodblablabla On their first date Tyler takes Mackenzie to meet his parentsAfter dinner Tyler and Mackenzie do some frisky businessthen Mackenzie flips out because Tyler didn t tell her that his sister died of Anorexia BOOM There s this part where Mackenzie gets an internship at a law firm There s a creepy guy there He unintentionally keeps touching her boobs and says creepy things Mackenzie was freaked out, but didn t say anything to anyone about it She almost gets raped by him Tyler saves her, and she gets turned on She almost got raped for Godsake and she gets horny when Tyler saves her This scene was so similar to FSOG I was not having a connection to this book It was not believable Anorexia bulimia is such a serious problem It s scary and terrifying.This book seriously did not show any sides of that It showed what anorexia could do to someone, but there wasn t anything emotional about it.I m done ranting about this book I m sorry I didn t enjoy it Well fuck me This book did what books are supposed to do I was so lost in the world of Tyler and Mack that the last line was upon me before i realised itAnd what a last line too Tyler was such a freaking hottie and sweetheartnew swoon material here.This novel is set in Australia and maybe cause i m Aussie and could actually picture the sceanery and understand some of the slang which there isn t a lot of may have helped me enjoy it a biti don t know, all i know is that i was Well fuck me This book did what books are supposed to do I was so lost in the world of Tyler and Mack that the last line was upon me before i realised itAnd what a last line too Tyler was such a freaking hottie and sweetheartnew swoon material here.This novel is set in Australia and maybe cause i m Aussie and could actually picture the sceanery and understand some of the slang which there isn t a lot of may have helped me enjoy it a biti don t know, all i know is that i was starting a book and the next it was a few hours later and i was done This is definately a character driven book rather than plot driven Although i thought it started a bit slowly it didn t take me longer to fall in love with these guys as a couple These guys go thru a couple of ups and downs but the strength of their relationship shines thru with the way they handle situations There is no bullshit immature back and for crap like i have been reading a lot of lately.A situation arises,they deal,they accept,and move on stronger than ever This books deals with a serious issue that i felt was dealt with remarkably The other key issues here are trust, honesty, love and devotion beyond the realm of this existence Too much has passed between us to just let her slip through my fingers I need her, I want her,and she s woven herself so intricately into my heart that without her I m finding it hard to breathe.

doesn t sugar coat the problem, she faces it head on in a very respectful yet informative way.Mackenzie is a junior in high school with an eating disorder In order to understand her need to control her food this way we have to go back to when the problems first started Three years ago her whole world crumbled before her eyes when her parents were divorced Mackenzie heard their heated argument the day they decided it was time to divorce For a young impressionable girl who had no idea things were this bad in her family, she was completely devastated But that wasn t the only thing that set the course for her future that night She was listening to her parents argue through the bedroom door and heard some things said that werethan likely said out of anger, but truly hurt her She has lingering issues with anger towards her mother, and she misses her fatherthan anything Watching her chew and swallow her food already makes me feel nauseous Perhaps if she d lost a little weight, took a littlepride in her appearance, maybe dad would have stayed It s a cruel thing to think, but there it is I look a complete and utter mess, not at all like the pretty girl my dad used to call me But for some reason, I feel better and in control It s like with one simple purge I feel like a weight as been lifted from my shoulders That feeling is kind of euphoric, which makes doing it kind of addictive As a junior in a new high school, Mackenzie does her best to stay in the shadows going unnoticed and avoid making any friends She uses her ability to control her food intake as a measure of discipline It s the only thing in her life she feel like she can control, so she does so in drastic measures She is picked on and whispered about but she doesn t care what anyone thinks about her But for some reason when she witnesses some senior jocks picking on a boy named Levi in the hall, she steps in to defend him When it appears all she has actually accomplished is diverting their attention from Levi to herself, Tyler steps in to save the day After that Mackenzie and Levi were thick as thieves I may not be able to control who loves me and who likes me Who stays and who goes But one thing

opposite in some ways He is supportive and friendly He doesn t push her on the issue of her eating disorder because he sort of has a problem with food himself He is outgoing where she is a recluse He

seems to like food too much It would appear in order to replace his misery he feeds himself to feel some sort of happiness Tyler is insanely attractive, star of the football team, and an all around good guy Tyler has a special background that blends with Mackenzie s disease His older sister died of a heart attack 3 years ago as a direct result of her eating disorder He and his sister were four years apart and extremely close before she started suffering from anorexia He watched her fade away in terms of health as well as the loving sister he once knew She became moody, secretive and angry When she died he lost a large part of himself, but he did something to help others in her memory He started a charity to help others like his sister beat the disease Kind2Me has given me and my parents a sense of peace We may have lost Kelly, but in her memory we aim to give others a fighting chance at beating the disease He has had his eye on Mackenzie for a while now Part of him sees a part of his sister in Mackenzie and can tell she is struggling with her disorder as well as some other deep rooted issue that is causing her to turn away from food He slowly starts to win her over by
