Evan and Frankie Leigh's story has ALL THE FEELS!
October 27, 2019
From the time we first met Hope Masterson and her adorable son Evan in Follow Me Back, I have held a very special place in my heart for the little boy who would become best friends with little Frankie Leigh who we met in Show Me the Way. I just knew that these two kids were going to have that magical, one of a kind friendship that would last a lifetime. And that was before my mind started traveling through the years and hoping and praying that they would grow into more than just best friends, that one day that friendship would evolve into a magical, one of a kind love.
Amy has truly outdone herself in bringing the readers a very grown up Evan. Evan, who Frankie Leigh has been in love with all her life. The boy she thought she would share her future with, but who suddenly left town three years ago and shattered all her hopes and dreams. Now he's back, and her heart is once again caught up in a storm of feelings. Relief that he is okay, but at the same time devastated at the thought that her love was not enough to keep him grounded.
I was a riot of emotions while reading this story. I loved how Amy gave us past chapters that compliment the events happening in the present. And slowly as each chapter rolls out, we get the story of why Evan left, what took place while he was gone, and what has brought him back home to Gingham Lakes. We get to see his parents, Hope and Kale, and all the characters we fell in love with in the Fight For Me series, along with the new additions who were born along the way.
This story has a bit of a suspense element to it, events happening that are running parallel to the reason that Evan has come home seeking help from his family. Add to that a huge secret Frankie Leigh has been keeping that she needs to reveal to Evan. Yeah, this story has ALL THE FEELS and as much as some things broke my heart, I couldn't help but fall in love all over again with Evan and Frankie Leigh and the unshakeable love they have always shared.
My heart is full and happy, and as much as I loved this book, I'm hoping Amy will gift us with little snippets of Evan and Frankie Leigh in future stories, just to give us a little more of Unicorn Girl and Froggy Boy. Gah....I love these crazy kids!!
