The Girl He Used to Know by Tracey Garvis Graves #bookReview

No photo description available.

I was in need of something new to read. You guys know me--I LOVE my paranormal and my horror novels, but every now and then I like to dip my toes into a fresh new love story. 
A lot of times, though, with these love stories, they end up being all the same. Luckily, this story was a bit more original.

It isn't a predictable story at all. Yes, it’s a love story, but not like what you’d expect. It’s written in a pretty unique manner. One main character is a high functioning autistic female and the love of her life is not. The story does go back and forth from both of their perspectives, through their timeline, while they were together and when they were apart.
Yes, they fall in love, but it’s not that simple. They do find ways to make it work, but then things get really tough, particularly for her to deal with. 
They lose touch, and then, of course, they reunite. 

Just when I thought things were going to go one way from there, drama ensues. You find out things from the past. Then, drama ensues yet again and the story goes a completely different direction. 
That was okay though! Now, was it my favorite love story? No. 
Was it a nice book to read? Yes. 
Like I was hinting at in the beginning of this post, I truly prefer to read books that stray from being just like every other book from the same genre. I like when I don’t know what’s going to happen next. Toss some surprises my way to keep me interested, ya know? 
 This book sure did that toward the last few chapters.

I won't spoil the book any more for you guys!



F.Y.I. This book has not been released yet, but it will be next month.
