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 and Charlie’s souls will collide. But souls are complicated, as are the bodies that house them . . .
Sexy, romantic, and oh-so-true to life, this is an unforgettable look at first love from one of young adult fiction’s greatest writers.

Praise for The Infinite Moment of Us
STARRED REVIEW
"The scenes of sexual intimacy are described with innocently erotic frankness, offering an ideal (if not idealized) model for readers on the cusp; this is Forever for a new generation, offering character depth Cath and Michael never achieved. Summer love has never been so good."
—Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"In contrast to unhealthy depictions of sex and relationships that teenagers (and adults) are often exposed to in media and entertainment, Myracle offers up a passionate romance built on a bedrock of love, respect, and trust. And it’s difficult to see that as a bad thing."
—Publishers Weekly

"
Two mature recent high school graduates fall in love and bring out the best in each other in Lauren Myracle's thoughtful exploration of an intimate relationship...the relationship between Wren and Charlie always remains realistic and involving."
—Shelf Awareness

"This charming romance has multidimensional characters, straightforward sexuality, and a pace that lets readers fall in love with the main characters. Myracle expertly captures the intense connection of first love, from the need to spend every moment together to trying to figure out how to communicate with one another."
—School Library Journal

"The single-focus intensity of Wren and Charlie’s feelings is spot-on for the age group... chapters move between both their perspectives as they grow into the relationship, offering readers of both sexes a rather compelling example of the how-to’s of intimacy."
—The Bulletin of The Center for Children’s Books

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Review from This is the Story of My(Reading) Life I literally just finished this and I'm still rolling my eyes. I will mention that this should not be classified as YA. It is definitely NA based on the sex scenes and the words used. It's pretty juvenile NA though. I think this book tried to hard to be a more grown up version of Forever by Judy Blume(I didn't like that book either). You've got the coming of age, first love, young love going on which wasn't executed all that well. The writing was to simple. The characters one dimensional. I get what Myracle was trying for. But for me, that just didn't come through. In the end it was still an enjoyable read. And that cover, yo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME STORYLINE. Please, please, please DO NOT listen to the negative reviews. This book was seriously amazing and it touched my heart. I see Wren as a person like myself, we both like school and want to please others. But you know, Wren's had enough of all that and it's time for her to come out of her shell and do things beyond the boundary. It's beautiful to see the romance Lauren Myracle created. I knew it that I'd love this book because I've been reading Lauren Myracle's books since I was a tween. She is a special author that means a lot to me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Decent Read The Infinite Moment of Us by Lauren Myracle has a good storyline. The plot is something that would appeal to the average teenager looking for a relatable story – girls who are best friends, applying to post-secondary education and getting accepted, going to graduation, prom, and scoping out boys. That last sentence pretty much sums up my life for the next couple of months. I have already applied to university and am waiting to find out if I have been accepted, and prom and graduation are just around the corner. However, when reading, I found that things got repetitive very quickly. I loved the first couple of chapters then got a little bored as the same kind of thing began to happen in the rest of the novel. This could be because lately I have been reading more action-filled novels with twist and turns at every corner and this was more of an easy, slower-paced read. With that in mind, it wasn’t a bad book – it just did not compare to the ones I had read before it. I would recommend this novel to anyone who is like me and could see themselves as some of the main characters with what is going on in their lives. In addition to this, I would recommend it to anyone looking for a slower-paced read.
