As I read the book, a piece of me trusted If Only You Stayed depended on a genuine story. Skye’s feelings came through idyllically, and Callie Ann Frey conveyed Skye’s misfortune more intensely than if the person had illustrated her sentiments in more organized composition. The titles over every sonnet gave the reader enough data without uncovering a lot about the substance, and the story moved along at a moderate speed. Flashbacks of the relationship Skye imparted to her beau connected with the reader in the romantic tale, and her sweetheart’s name isn’t referenced until the end, featuring the shortfall of his actual cognizance. I suggest the book for readers over the age of twelve, as a couple of exclamations are tracked down in the story, yet the sentiment and language are for the most part spotless and sweet.

Callie Ann Frey’s If Only You Stayed doesn’t offer this to a reader. What it offers, in any case, is a story told by the inward speech of the principal character. Each scaled down section, or free-refrain sonnet, centers around the following piece of the story, unfurling in the voice of the person, her considerations, responses, and requests composed for us to peruse. This makes the book exceptional in its show. While I wound up having close to zero familiarity with the world and environmental factors, I got serious areas of strength for an into the person and her battles. It was most certainly a fascinating perused that catches the considerations and cycles that can go through an individual’s psyche. In the event that you extravagant a simple read sentiment that wanderers from standard narrating, this might be exactly the thing you’re searching for.
