Enter Will Cooper: The attractive, 21-year-old new neighbor with an intriguing passion for slam poetry and a unique sense of humor. Within days of their introduction, Will and Layken form an intense emotional connection, leaving Layken with a renewed sense of hope.
Not long after an intense, heart-stopping first date, they are slammed to the core when a shocking revelation forces their new relationship to a sudden halt. Daily interactions become impossibly painful as they struggle to find a balance between the feelings that pull them together, and the secret that keeps them apart.
Two for the enchanting characters
Three for making the story relate-able
And the fourth for the amazing "slams"....
I'd have given it another but I felt it was missing something
Maybe it was because it was too small?
I hope no one ran away because of the lame slam attempt :P
Ah I do love poetry.. And I loved how the author incorporated it into the book. Slammed is a beautifully written book. What I took away from the book (apart from the obvious) was this, WORDS ARE POWERFUL. They can make a statement, they can make you feel, they can make you laugh and they can break you down. Words are powerful and I believe that if used correctly and effectively it can bring a change in the world!
Maybe I'd post one of them here....
Till Later! Take Care!
