what i think

Let it Be Us is the follow up to a favorite summer read of mine, let it be me. I wanted to love Let it be Us as much, but it just didn’t really work for me. First, its REALLY angsty. Its drama, piled on top of drama, then add in some more drama. Every page was more drama. I found myself skimming quite a bit. The situation between Canyon and Brooke was predictable and led to the biggest drama creation in the book. Then throw in Arianna and Shelby’s mom returning and you get more drama. But, the worst? The ending! Something SUPER tragic happens, and you think its the end of the chapter but its not. Its the end of the book. Then you get an epilogue thats like 30 years in the future. Nothing is really explained! Ugh. Honestly, I think I would have been happier if I had just never picked this book up. I enjoyed Let it be Me, but now I’m not sure that I do any more because this book kind of ruined it for me.
