The Infinite Moment of Us - Lauren Myracle
For as long as she can remember, Wren Gray’s goal has been to please her parents. But as high school graduation nears, so does an uncomfortable realization: pleasing her parents once overlapped with pleasing herself, but now . . . not so much. Wren needs to honor her own desires, but how can she if she doesn’t even know what they are?
Charlie Parker, on the other hand, is painfully aware of his heart’s desire. A gentle boy with a troubled past, Charlie has loved Wren since the day he first saw her. But a girl like Wren would never fall for a guy like Charlie—at least not the sort of guy Charlie believes himself to be.
And yet certain things are written in the stars. And in the summer after high school, Wren’s and Charlie’s souls will collide. But souls are complicated, as are the bodies that house them . . .
Steamy, romantic, and oh-so-true to life, this is an unforgettable look at first love from one of young adult fiction’s finest writers.
I really liked this book until the ending. It was a sweet romance with an emphasis on following oneself...and then the ending.

Normally I don't let my feelings about an ending affect the rest of my opinion of the book. But this ending was completely contrary to everything else the book advocated for. I feel like there had been some values built up and then they just got crushed. But to spare spoilers, I'll leave that there.

I thought the first part of the book was really sweet, and I really enjoyed reading about Charlie and Wren as they slowly fell in love. However, after this part, there wasn't much that really set this book apart from another typical romance.

Their love went from very sweet and cute to co-dependent and, in my opinion, unhealthy. I didn't enjoy how they seemed to abandon other friends and previously important relationships for each other, and how Wren was overly jealous. There was no trust between them.

I related a lot to Wren in feeling guilty about having had a good life, but this was probably about as deep as it got. Her dependence on her parents wasn't ultimately really resolved.

I did enjoy reading this, but there were too many things that irked me and that felt unhealthy about Wren and Charlie's relationship for me to really advocate for it.
