“It was pity that first made Dannie speak to him. She had known Ryan since she was a kid, but he had always been the popular Golden Boy, and she had always been the tomboy that didn’t mind not having any friends. It was odd, she had thought, that all the popular kids who had once kissed the ground he walked on, didn’t so much spared him a glance anymore, and it was this that made her sit with him that one faithful day and begin something that would only end up causing her pain.”
So this is a story from a website I’m a member of called ‘Wattpad’ great site, loads and loads of books, seriously, millions.
This is the story of Dannie and Ryan, as in the blurb suggests, Ryan was suddenly dropped from the popular crowd, no one really knows why, he just was.
Dannie, being, well, Dannie, sits by him at lunch, while he’s a writing a list of things he wants to do over the summer.
The pair quickly become very good friends, and do everything on Ryan’s list over the summer of their Senior Year (Year 11/13). They share a story of friendships, love, illnesses and loss.
I love this book, a friend of mine recommended it to me, saying how she had read it and how amazing it was.
My favourite quote from this story is :
“Red roses symbolize love, and red roses – despite their alluring beauty – can definitely hurt you.”
I love this quote because it is so true, although I am young I’ve seen heartbreak and heartache, and the author explains how love can hurt in this quote.
I cannot really think of a criticism for this book, it’s a short story but that suits the story line, if it were extended it would become long-winded and potentially boring.
