offer It is also a story about girl meets boy, and how they can affect each other s life The good part though, is the process I thought it was very original the way they met, I definitely loved that part.I really liked Riley, specially the fact that she was such a book worm She just seemed so real, even with her hypochondria and although she needs to learn to move on and cope with her grief, it felt like the tragic experience she had at age eleven, just made her want to be prepared for another emergency, so she took things in her hands and studied and learned, so she would never be vulnerable again I liked that about her, her willpower and resolution Nevertheless, sometimes I felt like she needed a bit of adventure and risk in her life, clearly she was very scarred by her dad s death, but that is what makes her so real, so human Her flaws On the other hand we had Cole, this sexy daredevil surfer skater boy He seemed like a lot of fun to be around You ll never get bored with him Plus, in spite of his love for adrenaline rushes, he was a mature boy who had a clear sense of what he wanted from life even though he didn t have a structured plan as Riley did I especially enjoyed the fact that although he was a daredevil, he was a good kid, very respectful and gentlemanly But what I liked the most was the mix between them They kept saying that they had nothing in common, but I thought they were perfect for each other because each had what the other needed, and together they could achieve a balance.The book is great Good amount of descriptions, character interaction was real, no irrelevant scenes The only disappointing part for me was the ending, for me it felt like something was missing, but apart from that it was an excellent book Note I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review, but my opinion was not biased in any way by this fact A story of hope, acceptable, struggle and love, and I really, really loved it A story of hope, acceptable, struggle and love, and I really, really loved it @DOWNLOAD KINDLE ⚣ Out of Nowhere ⚽ At eleven years old, Riley Tate witnessed the sudden death of her father Now, at sixteen, she still can t bring herself to step on the spot the section of kitchen floor on which her father landed after collapsing from a brain aneurysm For Riley, a borderline hypochondriac with anxiety issues, moving on seems impossible, taking risks is out of the question, and even the simplest things feel loaded with dangerWhen she meets Cole Boyer in an ER waiting room, Riley realizes immediately that he s far from the safe, predictable boy she usually goes for A fearless daredevil with mysterious scars and a thirst for all things dangerous, Cole is like an accident waiting to happen Still, despite their differences, they forge an unlikely friendship that eventually blossoms into something Dating someone who s so casual about death has its challenges, but as Riley soon

Out of Nowhere is a well written young adult contemporary book It was a perfect example of where readers can see the gradual transformation of the main character, Riley Tate, learning to deal with loss, moving on with life, and acceptance of new changes Riley Tate, is a 17 year old teenager, who tragically witness the death of her father when she was 11 years old The image of her father passing before her has been ingrained in her mind and has affected her life with the onset of panic attacks and hypochondria She doesn t like new changes in her life, is scared of the unknown and of getting sick or hurt, and afraid to move on Since the death of her father, Riley became fascinated with the medical world and plans to be a doctor so she can save lives She is smart, witty and passionate in absorbing and reading all the medical journals she can get her hands on When Riley meets Cole Boyer,he is the complete opposite of her He is unpredictable, enjoys life, a risk taker, and the complete opposite of Riley Cole challenges Riley to accept her fears and that being safe is not living life to the fullest.He makes her see that life is a gift and you should not be wasting it Cole and Riley s relationship from friends to a couple was beautifully well written He challenges Riley to step outside of her safe bubble With the help of her mom, friends, and Cole, Riley is learning to accept that changes can be a good thing and you can t stop living your life because of your fears I found this book to be a real page turner and loss track of time and didn t realized that I practically finished this book in one sitting Out of Nowhere is a perfect example of a book that was well written and delivers a strong message that changes are part of life and life is unpredictable and it moves on Memories of our loved ones are never erased or forgotten I loved all the characters of this book because they are all flawed and yet relatable I love how vulnerable, smart and witty Riley is I enjoyed the journey that Riley undertakes in stepping outside her safe bubble and entering a new world of possibilites and beginnings Rebecca Phillips I was given a copy by the author for an honest review I

so I left it for the morning I ve gotta say that it was a book that I couldn t put down, really captivating, easy dialogue, smart lines, nice characters, it had a bit of everything The drama was light but it was there In general we had to deal with the female s lead internal struggles Riley was so affected by the death of her father that she began living in a loop She made everything consciously or unconsciously revolve around that awful moment when she was 11 years old I loved that she was such a hard working student and that she had such a high goal in life Although this wasn t done for exactly the right reasons it was there and it was a big part of who she was I was riveted by her being unable to let go, by her constant grief This has come between her and all her social interactions either she realized it or not That being said, she has three awesome friends that are there for her no matter what and that accept her the way she is All four of them have their quirks and maybe that s what keeps them together Their non judgmental voices glues them through better or worse.That said I ve loved reading her snark, she is one though cookie You can barely one up her in the smart ass department She is funny without even meaning to be And she is so dedicated to everything she puts her mind to I loved that this book was spanned over several months and that Cole s and Riley s relationship had such a nice progressive curve I hate insta love kind of relationship and I will never tire of saying so This was so nice, all he did to gain her attention all the words, all the fun This is how a relationship should be.I really really loved Cole For an adrenaline junkie he is such a down to earth kind of guy He knows what he can and cannot do He knows his limitations, although they are very high for the average guy He just want to live and feel alive and know that even if today or tomorrow is his last day on this Earth that he has lived the fullest I just appreciate that about him because the majority of us just get caught up in our mundane lives that we forget to live Although they are so so so different for each other you can clearly see that they are perfect complements They complete the other like a jigsaw puzzle He brings life in Riley s existence and she grounds him.The only reason I gave this 4 stars is because it lacked an epilogue The ending was so open I know I can imagine everything I want about our two sweethearts but I really don t want to I want the real thing I want to know for sure that they will work out I need a perfect conclusion if this is a stand alone book.All in all it was a very nice read and I highly recommend it I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review Out of Nowhere is a wonderful reminder of why I

sentimentality What impressed me is that Rebecca Phillips creates such a good sense of the protagonist, Riley, as a raw and authentic character Her voice is self aware and real, which I love when reading contemporary YA She s strong yet vulnerable, and the first person narrative gives a fascinating glimpse into her anguish and trauma Out of Nowhere deals with serious issues such as death, family relationships, sex, love and acceptance, and trauma in an upfront and realistic way There was a good balance between the romance loved Cole , light hearted moments and the heavier issues This book deals uniquely with the issue of emotional trauma and grief from the perspective of a person who has witnessed it firsthand and is still experiencing it This is a hard issue to write about, and the author does so wonderfully For me one of the most interesting aspects was the portrayal of childhood trauma There wasn t a superficial exploration the author provided depth and insight into Riley s struggles with her family issues and the major loss in her life Riley s narration is engaging, and the story moves at a good pace with just the right amount of detail It s not all heavy though I definitely enjoyed the romance, and enjoyed it all thebecause it wasn t the only storyline I loved, loved, loved that family is also critical in Out of Nowhere view spoiler One minor quibble is the ending didn t quite give me the closure I was looking for I wantedresolution to the story because I became so invested in not only Riley, but also Cole and Riley s family However, this is my own preference and it didn t affect my enjoyment of the book Although the question of how Riley s family will move forward, and to a certain extent her relationship with Cole, is left open at the end, there s a strong sense they ll pull through hide spoiler This is a book I won t soon forget it was a pleasure to read intelligent and strong teenage characters Out of Nowhere is structured beautifully and has remarkable depths It s written with care and maturity, it s raw and moving, it s funny and honest, with unique and well developed characters Rebecca Phillips has reminded me how great YA fiction can be A free copy of this title was provided to me by the author in exchange for an honest review.I d say this story is a solid 4 for me The main character is likable, yet awkward and

sexuality or adorkableness that make so many heroines near and dear to the hearts of readers She is painfully awkward at times and suffers from a very well portrayed anxiety disorder Some readers may not be able to relate to the main character, because they don t understand how the mind can take over the body during an anxiety attack or how a panic attack truly feels like a heart attack However, for those readers who suffer or who have suffered with an anxiety disorder, the feelings and coping strategies and adapted social behaviors will be familiar.I took interest in the patience of her friends in dealing with her occasional neuroses I loved them for their acceptance of her issues The representation of Riley s relationships with her family members is good It is realistic, mom doesn t just disappear as is all too common in so many YA books and they have a very real and well illustrated relationship.The love story isn t insta love I love that It was slow and steady it isn t a torrent of lurid emotion in which the female loses herself in passions and changes all of her goals to accommodate the absorption of the male into her life The main character retains her sense of self and considers her goals when making relationship choices.I enjoyed Out of Nowhere The female lead is a strong role model for young women even while exhibiting an anxiety disorder and learning to deal with loss and change, Riley learns how to be honest with herself and others in an attempt to heal She also learns that she has trustworthy people in her life and that she doesn t have to heal all on her own.Contains kissing and a little petting, but as mentioned in the book, there was nothing past second base Language is clean, for the most part Riley does get angry once and drops the F bomb, but that is the only curse word I remember.First read 11 7 13 one day Second read 6 29 14 6 30 14 This book was provided to me in exchange for an honest and unbiased review This book was easily a five

vaguely remembered it, I thought it d probably be a cute, quirky girl meeting a boy etc etc So I feel kind of blown away right now This book is not about a high school girl meeting a boy who she falls for despite their differences This is a book about fear, anxiety, control, love, family, bravery, trust, chance, death and most of all about living I feel privileged to have gone on this journey with Riley I literally sobbed though the last 20% which shows how well written Riley was Her voice was so authentic, I felt her pain and her heart trying to get through, and the struggle of it all I ached for her and just wanted to hold her and make it all better Cole was great too I m so pleased he wasn t some ridiculous perfect boyfriend but actually a person with his own mind and motivations and experiences He didn t fix her, he was right for her and provided the best kind of support, but she has to fix herself I love it when that s the direction a book takes A hot guy does not fix years of anxiety and grief in a few short months You can only fix yourself.Although I m going on about how much I cried and the anxiety etc I actually found this book lovely and heart warming The family dynamics were very realistic I smiled at the domesticity and at the end had faith in the love they shared I was pleased that the book finishes without some big red Happy Ever After bow, but with a quiet resolve, and a little bit of faith in putting your heart in someone else s hands This was a weepy for me, but not in that over dramatic way where dreadful things happen and shock a reader into tears I cried with Riley as she found a way to move on, I cried with her because I loved her and I felt every ounce of her struggle and I wanted nothingthan for her to be happy.This will not be the last time I read this book Copy kindly provided by author in exchange for an honest review Nowadays, I hardly read YA books, but on the occasion I do, they re usually well written, exceptional stories

flipped by so fast I didn t even know the story ended until I got to the last page I love Riley s character She witnesses her father s tragic death at a very young age, and that horrible image is constantly on replay in her head As a result, she suffers from panic attacks and hypochondria She likes stability, and any change terrifies her When Riley meets Cole, their two personalities clash immediately They couldn t bedifferent Cole s carefree lifestyle and risk taking personality really bug her It just amazes me how well Rebecca can bring together two so very different characters, and make a love story out of it Cole constantly challenges Riley s boundaries, and Riley teaches him a thing or two Despite the heavy content that sets the premise of this book, I found the story to be lighthearted in tone It was very easy to read and get sucked into their story.This book reminded me why I loved YA before, and I m glad I took a chance to read it 4.5 STARS 4.5 5 This book was given
