The Impossible Vastness of Us
by Samantha Young
I am a huge Samantha Young fan, as well as a YA fan, so I was very excited to read this one.
India Maxwell hasn’t just moved across the country—she’s plummeted to the bottom rung of the social ladder. It’s taken years to cover the mess of her home life with a veneer of popularity. Now she’s living in one of Boston’s wealthiest neighborhoods with her mom’s fiancé and his daughter, Eloise. Thanks to her soon-to-be stepsister’s clique of friends, including Eloise’s gorgeous, arrogant boyfriend Finn, India feels like the one thing she hoped never to be seen as again: trash.
But India’s not alone in struggling to control the secrets of her past. Eloise and Finn, the school’s golden couple, aren’t all they seem to be. In fact, everyone’s life is infinitely more complex than it first appears. And as India grows closer to Finn and befriends Eloise, threatening the facades that hold them together, what’s left are truths that are brutal, beautiful, and big enough to change them forever…
I really enjoyed this story, and the characters were awesome. While there are some romance aspects in this story, it is really more about growing up and building relationships. This is a great coming of age story about deciding who you are and what you want to be.
I loved how the relationship developed between India, Eloise, and Finn. I also wanted a little more at the end. This was a great story, but it ended a little abruptly for me.
