The Infinite Moment of Us, by Lauren Myracle

The Infinite Moment of Us, By Lauren Myracle is a book I chose to review. In the book, there was a boy and a girl who were both seniors at high school in Atlanta. The girl, whose name was Wren Grey, had brown eyes and dark brown hair. She was an only child and because of that, her parents were overprotective. Wren Gray’s goal has been to please her parents but, as high school graduation nears, she realizes that she needs to honor her own desires instead of her parents. But how can she honor her own desires when she doesn't know what they are? 

Charlie Parker, on the other hand, is a gentle boy with auburn eyes and brown hair with a troubled past. Charlie has liked Wren since the day he first saw her. They both talk for the first time at the end of the school year and the rest is written in the stars. The Infinite Moment Of Us was a great book to read. I really liked this book because it was very fun to read and was one of the most interesting books that I have read in a long time. In comparison to other books that I have read, this keeps you reading until the end and you never want to put it down. Wren has always felt the pressure of her overwhelming parents. Her parents always pushed her to get good grades and go to a good college. Wren’s parents are overbearing and overprotective. Wren is on the fence as to whether or not she should please her parents about going to a local college as they wish, or go to a foreign college as she desires. 

Throughout the story you learn about the choices Wren has to make in order to be independent from her parents. From reading this book, we can all learn about how teens mature and become more independent. I would highly recommend this book to other young adults ranging from 12+ because other people that are under 12 might not enjoy this book or understand some of the literature in the book. Also, some kids that are under 12 would not enjoy reading a story that is at a higher reading level. -Ariana Bakalo
