About this deal

Anyway, this was definitely a perfect sequel to the most amazing, awe-inspiring story I've had the pleasure to experience! As I wrote for the first book, this is see life through big pink glasses type of story with every drama you can imagine mixed with it. There is a way to make your presence known, to remind someone of why they love you, without turning into Kathy Bates from misery and removing all their freedom from you.

and my personal favorite - that gloriously wonderful "punched in the gut" butterfly feeling that boy gives you! People would eventually start using the word ‘butterfly’ as an insult and to emphasize things in a negative way. In this book, we get more of Lake, Will and the awesome gang that we met in Slammed, but we get to meet a few other characters too. More challenges to face, more gripping and heart wrenching situations to bound through, a few more amazing slams to add to the mix, and more tears to be shed from this read. Now, we know that the whole female virginity preservation plotline is one I'm just weary of, especially when it's as random and unnecessary as it is in Point of Retreat.I have been in the biggest Avett Brothers mood all of March and after listening to them non-stop on Spotify, all I wanted to do was re-read the ‘Slammed’ series.

Point of Retreat continues to carry the concept of Slamming and never have I ever thought I would love poetry as much as I did - actually probably even more than I did in the first book. I wasn't aware of the switch in POV (from Slammed) before starting the book and it was such a happy surprise. He gets their 11 year old neighbor to knock on her door so that he can FORCE HIS WAY INTO HER HOUSE, Y'ALL! And until now I can't imagine how this book will replace all the romance books combine in the whole world ever.I know that this review was pretty ranty but I just can't BELIEVE how different this was from the first book. I really enjoyed that they all sort of formed this bond of family, and that Sherry was the untitled "mother hen" for them.

The only thing that's keeping this from being a straight one-star book for me is that I use my first one-star read, Wither, as the baseline for single star ratings and this didn't reach that level of absurdity. She’s managed to steal my concentration captive and render me worthless until I read her story of Layken and Will in Point of Retreat from eCover to eCover. I have come to love slam poetry (well, at least the ones from this book, I don't really have any other experience with it). Before Julia passed away, we made the mistake of taking things too far, too soon—a crucial mistake on my part.Layken and Will are both in the same situation: they're raising their respective siblings while trying to make the transition to adulthood. I bring our hands above her head and press them into the floor, then lean in as if I’m going to kiss her, but I don’t.
