Everywhere We've Been Review

Everywhere We've Been
By: Sarah Everett

Addison Sullivan has been in an accident. In its aftermath, she has memory lapses and starts talking to a boy who keeps disappearing. She's afraid she's going crazy, and the worried looks on her family's and friends' faces aren't helping.
Addie takes drastic measures to fill in the blanks and visits the Overton Clinic. But there she unwittingly discovers it is not her first visit. And when she presses, she finds out that she had certain memories erased. 
Flooded with questions about the past, Addison confronts the choices she can't even remember and wonders if you can possibly know the person you're becoming if you don't know the person you've been.

Now, usually I am not a fan of books with lost memories, and the whole plot is them trying to figure them out but wow this story took that concept and twisted it up into a new obsession for me. 

Addison Sullivan is an average girl with a love for the viola (it is not a violin).  Insert a tragic accident resulting in some strange occurrences by a boy who nobody but she can see. Which is basically like me and every fictional boy ever to date. 

Meanwhile we get a flash back on what happened eighteen months ago and the adventures she goes on, mistakes she makes, and the things she does. Piece by piece, you start to put two-and-two together and things start to shift. But you won't be ready for the ending. Nope. Which I am dying to spill but for the sake of you, I won't. 

This book brought out so many emotions in me; I would sit up in my dorm bed and be reading for hours. My roommates literally made fun of me for how invested I got into the story. It's a typical love story but with a huge twists and cute unique dates that I hope my future boyfriend will do for me. 

The message behind the story will haunt you after you read and forever. It teaches us why the past is important, and we shouldn't try to escape the bad memories.  We should focus on the good. What happens before will shape us into our today, and we can't ignore that. 

Overall, this book was a win, and deserves a 4/5 stars.
