Seventeen-year-old Scout Ramsey’s life is a mess. With a dead father and a junkie mom, she can’t imagine things can get worse.

Then her mother tries to sell her for a bag of meth.

After her mom’s arrest, Scout’s forced to switch schools in the middle of senior year. Scared and alone, she pours her heart into her journal and dreams of the day she turns eighteen.

For Wyatt Campbell, senior year is predictable purgatory. Then the new girl steals his seat in history class, and suddenly, school’s not so bad. They bond through their love of music, and Wyatt finds himself falling hard for the journal-loving girl with the sad blue eyes.

Wyatt’s heard the rumors. He knows Scout’s had it rough.

He’s determined to be the one thing in her life that’s easy.

In this captivating teen novel, Sydney Logan weaves a touching story that tackles the heartbreak of addiction, the power of forgiveness, and the wonders of first love.





Review:

Rating: 5++ out of 5 stars


Between the raindrops is not a book for everyone. It contains triggers such as drug use, human trafficking (though it doesn't dive too deep and no one is harmed), physical abuse and some mental. I felt so sorry for the characters and I cried for Scout. She goes through a lot of bad situations and she doesn't deserve any of it. I wanted to get into the book and promise her that everything was going to be ok. She matures a lot in this book and I loved how she stood up to the people who harmed her. I applaud what she did in the end. It was the best decision she could have made, but I kind of wished for a happier ending. The ending we got felt more realistic though. 

Wyatt goes through some issues on his own. His overprotectiveness could have been represented as an act of love in many romance novels and we would have been fine with it, but in this book, we see a more realistic side of the problem and he goes to therapy. He felt so responsible for not protecting Scout when she needed him, even though it wasn't his fault that it sent him over the edge. Over the course of the book, he is a great person and I fell for him. He is always there for Scout and I adored him for that. Gina, his mom, was also one of the best people in this book. She bonded with Scout and she gave her what she lost because of the drugs, a mother. Their bond gave me so many feels!

The reason why I needed an epilogue was that I needed to see that she and Wyatt are ok a few years after the events of the book. I really hope the author will grace us with a short story about them in the future. I also want to know what happened to Zoie and her boyfriend. Those plotlines are bugging me a lot. 

The book is a must read and you should go on this journey with Wyatt and Scout. Besides a recommendation, I am also giving it a nomination for my top books of 2018 and I don't see it not making it to the top 5.
