Review: And We Call It Love
Clare and Zari are best friends. They write music together, go everywhere together, and they know everything about the other. At least they did before Zari started dating Dion. The more Zari falls for Dion, the less she has time for anything else. At first, Clare chalks it up to a new and exciting relationship, and she tries to be happy for her friend despite her loneliness. When Zari starts to show up to school with half-hidden bruises, Clare knows there's something darker about this relationship that has to be stopped.
I haven’t read a verse-novel in quite a while, so I was really pleased by it being a super quick, straight-to-the-point and easy read. It tackled issues of acceptance and friendship, abuse, not taking things for granted as well as the importance of all living things needing a support system in order to thrive. “It’s difficult for a tree to survive without its support system.”
I received this book through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
