I don’t think that I’ve ever had my emotions flown so all over the place than when I was reading Together, Apart. Despite the stories being swoon-worthy and oh-so-magnetic, I just wanted each one to last forever. And there wasn’t a single story that I didn’t love. I do have a few favourites (of course) but I would ten-times over purchase a full-length book of each story that was woven in the novel. Each time that one of the stories would reach peak-cuteness, it ended and I was like OH NO, PLEASE CONTINUE! So, that was my first and most prominent clue that I pretty much would be rating this book very highly.
Erin’s story had me FLOORED. I adored Millie and Luka the most. Auriane had me flipping pages fast for the sweetest romance. Bill’s story involved dogs, and as an animal lover, I was sold, including on the romance that clutched at my heartstrings. Erin Hahn’s story just so happened to be one of my favourites, I was glued to the pages in those last moments for Gray and Jude. Sajni’s story had me enthralled from the get-go with the lost-shoe and guitar boy. Brittney’s story with a touch of plant-lover vibes was one of my favourites (of course, there was a cat and a dog in the novel, so it’s no surprise.) Jennifer’s part was one of my top-three for sure, I was hanging by a thread and partially feeling hungry with the mentions of food. Natasha’s story was golden – like, come on, they hang out in a tree, have that spark. I was in love. Rachael’s part was equally as sweet, filled with heart-clutching moments, leaving me not wanting it to end.
Overall, Together, Apart is easily one of the strongest, beautifully-written, honest and painfully-sweet YA novels I’ve read in such a long time. Even though most of the stories in the book involved a very distanced approach to love, centering around the COVID pandemic, there was still such a connection between the love interests, and THAT takes skill and sheer talent. I would highly recommend this book to literally anyone. This book, these characters, these authors, have my heart. Five stars for each and every one!
