There once was a boy, and I loved him.Logan Francis Silverstone and I were complete opposites. I danced, and he stood still. He was quiet, while I ran my mouth. He struggled to find a smile, and I refused to frown.

The night I saw the darkness that truly lived inside of him, I couldn’t look away.

We were broken together, yet somehow whole. We were wrong together, but always right. We were the stars that burned across the night sky, searching for a wish, praying for better tomorrows.

Until the day I lost him. He threw us away with one hasty decision–a decision that changed us forever.

There once was a boy, and I loved him.

And for a few breaths, a few whispers, a few moments, I think he loved me, too.

 REVIEW:

Of course I cried. Brittainy has a way with words that scorch your insides and bring out all the feels. This book most definitely does that. It rolls emotions through you – from anger to flat out hatred to love; The Fire Between High & Lo put me into a state of emotional turmoil I was expecting.

Logan is not a character you’re going to stay in love with. At least he wasn’t for me. His flaws are big. His scars are deep. And his actions are reprehensible. The way that he treated Alyssa and the good pieces of his family was awful. I hated him for it. It’s very likely because I have personal experience with his particular affliction that taints my opinion of him. Makes him less redeemable. Makes me less sympathetic. Makes me colder to his journey.

But that doesn’t mean that the story isn’t beautiful. Logan grows as a character and does win you back over. He journey is long but it’s worth reading. I did wish that Alyssa had a little bit more fire in her. That she didn’t give in so easily and forgive so quickly. But then again, when a true love flashes through your life, do you give it up so quickly when there’s a chance for good again?

Cherry writes this book in a somewhat Ugly Love style – it was almost poetic in places, which nestles its way into your chest and makes a home. This book will definitely make you react: cry, laugh, scream, smile – it’s all there. It’s a beautiful story edged in darkness. It’s a story about how the good can win after all. 4.5 stars!
