Rated 4 out of 5 by from young adult, coming of age, life lessons BOYS LIKE YOU is a contemporary, young adult storyline that focuses on two teens who have experienced more heartache and pain than many adults. Sixteen and half year old New Yorker Monroe Blackwell is spending the summer with her Grandmother in Louisiana. Still grieving from a loss that will haunt her the rest of her life, Monroe will meet seventeen year old local bad boy Nathan Everets-a young man whose life took a sudden turn when a car accident left his best friend in a coma and near death. With the Nathan as the driver, the blame has been placed squarely on the shoulders of a teenager who thought he was okay to drive. Choices were made and consequences were delivered. Now two lost souls will find one another in a summer of romance, resolutions and love. Juliana Stone pulls the reader into a heartbreaking storyline about two teens who have had to experience loss and the startling realization that one mistake can snowball with fatal results. BOYS LIKE YOU is a story that is emotional in its’ presentation, traumatic in its’ content, and passionate in its’ ideals. Monroe and Nathan are your average teenagers, with families, friends and hobbies until one day each will experience the horrific loss that will result in two broken souls who have no hope of ever finding peace in their own little corner of the world. The characters are relatable, likeable and you can empathize with the pain and suffering for two families whose losses are different but no less traumatic. The storyline is fast paced, well structured and told from alternating first person points of view (Monroe and Nathan). The building summer romance between Nathan and Monroe will culminate with a Labor Day goodbye but one that will see promises made forever. Because this is a young adult storyline, there is no graphic sex but sex does happen behind the scenes and it is implied. And unlike many YA storylines there is NO love triangle to interfere with this reader’s enjoyment of the book. BOYS LIKE YOU by Juliana Stone is a tale taken from many of today’s headlines. Where choices are made without forethought or implication; and where guilt overrides any sense of self worth when the family left behind must face the ones who have survived every day of their life. This is a story of letting go and allowing a stranger to catch you when you fall.
