You Always Have Me is a book that has been out for a little less than a month. It is very beautifully written and took me in right away. It starts off with a 17-year-old Kale right before the summer between her Jr and Sr year of high school.
Kale has led a tough life which is depicted in detail in the story so fair warning there is some beating triggers in the book. Even with her gruesome life I feel like this added well to the story and really brought in some raw emotions. About mid-way through there is also a flash-back rape scene so trigger there too.
With the beginning of the story being pretty heavy the second half of the book is more light-hearted and a love story between Kale and her childhood friend Wyatt. It’s a coming of age book for Kale who is stepping from a ruined childhood into a more carefree adulthood and trying everything out for the first time.
There is a scare between Kale and Wyatt’s love story, but what is a romance without some drama?
I would read this book again because I really loved the characters and how they interacted with each other. I feel like I’ve been getting pretty lucky with the amount of books I’ve been enjoying lately!
