“Lessening the misery of the past will lead to a brighter future.”
Resume: Zelda Rossi witnessed the unthinkable, and has spent the last ten years hardening her heart against the guilt and grief. She channels her pain into her art: a dystopian graphic novel where vigilantes travel back in time to stop heinous crimes—like child abduction—before they happen. Beckett Copeland spent two years in prison for armed robbery, and is now struggling to keep his head above water. A bike messenger by day, he speeds around New York City, riding fast and hard but going nowhere, his criminal record holding him back almost as much as the guilt of his crime. Zelda and Beckett form a grudging alliance of survival, and in between their stubborn clash of wills, they slowly begin to provide each other with the warmth of forgiveness, healing, and maybe even love.
“I once read that you fell in love like how you fell asleep: slowly at first and then all at once.”
I’m so in love with Zelda and Beckett. The author took her time to build their relationship and the characters are so rich, with so much story and hurtful past. Two lost sould that somehow finds each other and through friendship and love, they surpass the dark memories. It may take some time for people to connect to them but their suffering and guilty is so real that you feel what they are feeling. Beckett is such an amazing protagonist. He is tormented and so kindand he cares so much about others. He is the soul of this book. I also liked how there wasn’t a big drama in this book and the author kept our attention without needing a big twist or unnecessary drama.
I totally recommend this book for those looking for tormented characters, a good heroine and a fantatic hero.
