synopsis

Together is somewhere they long to be.

Ash Gupta has a life full of possibility. His senior year is going exactly as he’s always wanted– he’s admired by his peers, enjoying his classes and getting the kind of grades that his wealthy, immigrant parents expect. There’s only one obstacle in Ash’s path: Eden Moore—the senior most likely to become class valedictorian. How could this unpopular, sharp-tongued girl from the wrong side of the tracks stand in his way?

All Eden’s ever wanted was a way out. Her perfect GPA should be enough to guarantee her a free ride to college — and an exit from her trailer-park existence for good. The last thing she needs is a bitter rivalry with Ash, who wants a prized scholarship for his own selfish reasons. Or so she thinks. . . When Eden ends up working with Ash on a class project, she discovers that the two have more in common than either of them could have imagined. They’re both in pursuit of a dream — one that feels within reach thanks to their new connection. But what does the future hold for two passionate souls from totally different worlds?

thoughts

The Possibility of Somewhere just became one of my favorite reads this 2016. It also succeeded to be a part of my “books-that-I-could-not-put-down” I found it hard to set it aside even for a while.

The characters are of different race. Eden is white, and she’s a Christian, while Ash is black. The book has characters I found hard not to like, same as how difficult I’ve tried not to hate some of them. The kids in the book played huge parts, they’re really adorable.

The book is pragmatic. What attracted me most is the diversity. There were stereotyping, racisms, discriminations. Aside from those, motivational and emotional aspects weren’t missed. I just found the exact elements I’ve been looking for- they’re in this book.

TPOS is Julia Day’s debut novel, and I’m telling you this, the book is too great, terrific. I loved Julia’s writing style, her commendatory diction, and all. Hats off!

I recommend this book to everyone who’s up for diversity. I hope you’ll like it as much as I did!

Thank you St. Martin’s Press for the review copy of the book, in exchange of an honest review.
