Welcome to Colsten Can’t Wait! This week, we’re highlighting Our Year of Maybe by Rachel Lynn Solomon!
Synopsis: Aspiring choreographer Sophie Orenstein would do anything for Peter Rosenthal-Porter, who’s been on the kidney transplant list as long as she’s known him. Peter, a gifted pianist, is everything to Sophie: best friend, musical collaborator, secret crush. When she learns she’s a match, donating a kidney is an easy, obvious choice. She can’t help wondering if after the transplant, he’ll love her back the way she’s always wanted. But Peter’s life post-transplant isn’t what either of them expected. Though he once had feelings for Sophie, too, he’s now drawn to Chase, the guitarist in a band that happens to be looking for a keyboardist. And while neglected parts of Sophie’s world are calling to her—dance opportunities, new friends, a sister and niece she barely knows—she longs for a now-distant Peter more than ever, growing increasingly bitter he doesn’t seem to feel the same connection. Peter fears he’ll forever be indebted to her. Sophie isn’t sure who she is without him. Then one heartbreaking night twists their relationship into something neither of them recognizes, leading them to question their past, their future, and whether their friendship is even worth fighting for.
This book sounds like it’s going to be heartbreaking, hopeful, and beautiful all at the same time. I”m usually not drawn to books like these, but for some reason, I’m entranced by this one. I’m so ready to read about complicated feelings and friendships and doing what is best for you. I think this book is going to be about hard subjects and doing hard things and hard relationships. I think it is going to be heartbreakingly real. I’m really excited to this one! And I can’t wait to see how dandelions tie into the book!
Thank you for reading!
