Myracle, L. (2013). The infinite moment of us. New York, NY: Amulet Books.
Eighteen year old Wren Gray has always played it safe and followed her parents’ rules. Having just graduated from high school, Wren decides that it is time to take her life into her own hands. She meets Charlie Parker and, for the first time, Wren falls in love.
Lauren Myracle has often been compared to Judy Blume, and, after reading this book, I know why. The Infinite Moment of Us is raw, emotional, and, most importantly, realistic. Myracle does not shy away from details, giving readers the good, the bad, and the ugly.
This book would appeal to anyone looking for a love story and the thrills and pain of first love. The story may be more appealing to an older teen audience, especially recent high school graduates.
I would give this book a 4.5. It is raw, realistic, and relatable and captures the feelings of first love.
