Review: The Leaving Season by Cat Jordan

The Leaving Season by Cat Jordan
Notes: Review copy received via Amazon Vine.
Young Adult, Romance, Social Issues
Digital/Print (352 pages, HARPERTEEN)
Middie Daniels calls it the leaving season: the time of year when everyone graduates high school, packs up their brand-new suitcases, and leaves home for the first time.
This year Middie's boyfriend, Nate, is the one leaving, heading to Central America for a year of volunteering after graduation. And once he returns, it'll be time for Middie to leave, too. With him. But when tragedy strikes, Middie's whole world is set spinning. No one seems to understand just how lost she is . . . except for Nate's slacker best friend, Lee. Middie and Lee have never gotten along. But with the ground ripped out from under her, Middie is finding that up is down—and that Lee Ryan might be just what she needs to find her footing once more.
Cat Jordan's heartbreaking story proves that no matter the season, no matter the obstacles, love can help you find yourself in the most unexpected of places.

Ruined by the twist! (2 stars)

This is a difficult book to review without spoilers so it's gonna be a little short. I don't recall where I heard about this book but the premise seemed promising. Two people recovering from the loss of someone they cared deeply about falling in love. The blurb hides the twist that really is obvious if you've seen any movie where someone is presumed dead and that ultimately killed this book for me. After the twist the whole thing just felt tedious and uncomfortable, which unfortunately was almost a third of the book.

If you liked the films Brothers or Pearl Harbor maybe you'll enjoy it more than I did.
