About this deal

I will say, however, I was satisfied when Autumn and Finny finally realized their romantic love for each other. Never in my entire life would I forgive my best friend for hooking up with my boyfriend no matter how much she apologized. I started reading in the morning and didn't put it down until I was done crying because I had a feeling someone stabbed me in the heart even though the book started with the most unpleasant thing than can happen.

I felt like the story was a little predictable, but still hit me like a train-wreck when it all unfolded.Teen readers may relate to some of the characters' experiences, such as shifts in friend groups, cliques, and trying on various identities. I kept going back to the front of the book to make sure it wasn’t an Advanced Reader Copy but sure enough, it was read and approved by an editor. The book pulled at my heartstrings and left me grieving the characters as if I knew them personally, but also left me wanting to skip through some tedious plot lines.

As the story follows Autumn and Finny through their high school years, they rarely interact outside of their "family" gatherings.You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. If He Had Been With Me was on my 'can't wait' list for months and I couldn't resist and read it the moment I got my hands on it. Definitely take a chance on this story — allow yourselves to be caught up in Autumn and Finn’s lives and to root for two childhood best friends to fall in love.

I think it’s one of those things you don’t even really care about and you think, “oh whatever, it doesn't seem that bad” but then it comes and at first you’re like ? Junior year brings about a lot of change, most notably the securing of driver’s licenses among both Autumn and Finny’s friends. As selfish as it could've been the ending of the book left me with hope of a life save, a life continued and a second chance for all to find some piece of happiness. Autumn used to be friends with her first door neighbor, Finn but after middle school she becomes very popular and they grow apart.

I hated her "not like other girls" and "quirky" (that word makes me cringe every time I see it 🙄) attitude, and also how she just kept acting so weird around Jamie. So, is the reader supposed to believe that Autumn and Finny were just Meant To Be and Perfect For Each Other?
