Soulmates

10/10

 

Soulmates do exist. But not as you think.

Every so often two people are born who are the perfect match for one another. Soulmates. But what if meeting your soulmate is earth-shattering – literally?

 

This is the story of Poppy and Noah; they are on opposite ends of the spectrum. Poppy is a sweet, sensible, middle-class girl suffering with anxiety whereas Noah is a rich guitarist, living on his own with depression. It seems that it would be impossible for the two of them to meet considering their completely different lifestyles, however on that one fateful Big Band Night their lives change for ever and they begin a journey to discover a love that could quite literally end the world.

I don’t think it is possible for Holly Bourne to write a book which isn’t earth-shatteringly good! I mean, this book is seriously amazing. It hooked me in right from the beginning introducing a main character who is mind-bogglingly awesome!

At first I was a little confused with the changing plot lines as I didn’t see the relevance of monitoring Poppy and Noah’s love-life, however towards the end I started to realise and boy was it brilliant?!? It very cleverly interweaved together and made complete sense. I loved it. A highly recommended read for young adults.
