Review of A Story of Now by Erin O’Beirne


I like the cover of this book. It got my attention as I was scrolling through NetGalley and then I read the description and had to request it. The characters are well done and I love the ease of their friendship and their fun banter. It sounds very authentic and natural.

Claire is a fun character. I like how she’s just trying to figure out her life while dealing with her over-bearing mother, new friendships and changes in her life. The author perfectly captures what it’s like to feel distant from your high school friends as your lives go in opposite directions, how you feel when you have a new crush and you’re trying to figure out what things mean and how fun it is to just be out with your friends. It was refreshing.

I really like that things between Claire and Mia aren’t rushed. It takes them awhile to figure things out and have some set backs along the way, but once they’re finally together they’re both much happier…if they can stop doubting themselves.

I will be reading the second book to see how things go with Claire and Mia. I’d recommend this to fans of young adult, coming of age stories and contemporary romances. I gave it 4/5 stars.

I love reading, listening to music, watching wrestling and spending time with my friends and family. I read mostly Young Adult books and I love paranormal books, especially vampire ones. I am originally from Connecticut, but I live in Maryland now. I have a book buying habit and I'm addicted to the book section of my local thrift shop.
