Puddle Jumping

Book: Puddle Jumping
Author: Amber L. Johnson

When it comes to love there’s no such thing as conventional.

Everyone thinks Colton Neely is special.

Lilly Evans just thinks he’s fascinating.

Once friends when they were younger, their bond is cut short due to her accident prone nature and they go their separate ways. Years later, they meet again and Lilly learns that there is something special about the boy she once knew, but she has no idea what it all means. And she’s not sure if she’s ready to find out.

When he walks through the corridor of her school the first day of her senior year, she knows that it’s time to get to know the real Colton Neely. The more she learns, the deeper she falls.

Their friendship grows into love, even as Colton does not express it in words. But one decision threatens to break down the world that Lilly has tried so hard to integrate into and she must figure out if the relationship can survive if they are apart.-Goodreads

Review: This is a cute romance about Lilly, a teenage girl prone to accidents and Colton, an artistic genius with Aspergers. Lilly is a believable protagonist and Johnson nails her teenage narrative. I think adding Colton's narrative would have made this story stronger as well as some chapters highlighting them doing more things as a couple. It was too short and needed more 'meat' to the story. 

Overall, sweet story. 

Grade: 3/5
