Review : The Year I Met August by Renea Porter

***ARC provided by author in exchange for an honest review***

The Year I Met August by Renea Porter is a beautifully written story about first love , coming of age , and moving forward through life . Warning : this book does contain references to drugs and substance abuse . This may be a trigger for some .

We are introduced to Murphy who is a fast track student with her future mapped out . Her sister Melanie introduces her to August . They hit it off immediately . In 10 short days they fall in love . August is keeping a major secret from Murphy . Will his secret be too much and destroy the relationship they have ? Does Murphy have secrets of her own ? Will their love be able to overcome all the obstacles in their path ?

This was a book that has taken me days to process everything . It's one of those books that makes you feel , think and reflect . It is very well written and I would recommend it to everyone , just keep your Kleenex close .  You will need them . I look forward to reading more books by this author .
