synopsis

One kiss lasts a moment.

when Poppy fell silent. When he discovers the truth, he finds that the greatest
heartache is yet to come.

I don’t know if my review is gonna make sense because, I admit that I’m in an emotional, deeply affected state of mind. How can I describe this book? Unique and ethereal. Visceral and poetic. A high loaded shot of emotions straight to the heart! Tearjerking YA? Definitely!

I think no one will be prepared for this story, a love about two teens; Rune and Poppy, transcendent, poignant, defying time and space. And I’ve been warned by so many people, to get my box of tissues … They were right. And I sobbed more than once, swooned, smiled, I was moved and feeling all of it!

Rune and Poppy, has been friends since they were five, totally inseparable, the broody and angry boy found his soulmate, the sweet and so full of life Poppy.  Rune the blond, viking boy from Norway and Poppy the adventurer and so mature girl with green eyes and a bow in her hair.

When you read about these two you could feel how unconditionally they loved each other. Falling in love so hard, so young, they couldn’t stay away from each other.As their hearts beating as one. One EPIC love!

They went through so much, between love, separation, heartbreak and loss. My heart was overwhelmed by their story. True, passionate and kind.  I felt like I was holding my breath throughout the story, my heart was racing on full speed mode, trying to handle all these emotions.

But sometimes life got in the way and you learnt that you had to enjoy your life without regrets, to open your eyes, to enjoy each moment, like Poppy’s Jar of ‘A Thousand Boy Kisses’ given by her grandmother before she passed away. A memory of how each moment is precious, has to be treasured. This jar is the pillar of their story. I won’t reveal much because you really need to experience this.

It was written like a poetic tale, offering some perspective about life, at times very spiritual. Through their passion for music, photography and mostly their relationship, Rune and Poppy got me hooked until the end when I tried to hold the freaking tears.

I couldn’t write my review right away because I was too stunned by this book! How to write about it without revealing the plot and the incredible adventure Rune and Poppy shared?Just talking about emotions!  Even if I felt more than heartbroken in a huge part of the story, I felt at peace in the end, more heart lighted, and happy.

So Tillie Cole, from the bottom of my heart, thanks you for writing Rune and Poppy’s star crossed love story! I need more than a drink maybe a whole bottle after reading it. So open your eyes, open your minds and open your hearts.

Highly recommended!
