Hopeless

Hopeless (Hopeless, #1)Hopeless by Colleen Hoover
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hopeless is just one of those books that grabs a hold of your heart and leaves you with so many emotions. I have never loved a fictional couple so much before. Their relationship was so real and beautiful and I just wanted everything to work out for them the whole time

Sky was adopted when she was five, and has lived sheltered her whole life (this means home-schooled and without access to television, internet or phone). Her only link to the world outside her house is her best friend and neighbor, Six. They visit each other, have sleepovers and sneak boys into their rooms. But sky is immune to boys, and when they kiss and touch her, she becomes detached and disconnected with her body and what’s going on. Overall she is fairly happy and has a good relationship with her adoptive mother.

Her life changes when she finally convinces her mother to let her attend high school for her senior year, but when she gets her wish, Six decides to go to Italy, thus Sky must face her first time in school with her bad reputation as only company. So the first day people stare at her, call her a slut and ignore her, but at least she makes one friend, the token gay character.

On top of that, she meets brooding hunk, Holder, and for the first time in her life, she actually feels sexually attracted to someone. The guy has a reputation of being a violent homophobe who went to juvie for a hate crime. But it’s all a lie, because he only beat up a guy who insulted his sister who recently committed suicide, and the guy being gay had nothing to do with it. Besides, his violent tendencies are sporadic and not a steady part of his personality. So they fall in love, dry-hump and cook (not necessarily in that order).

When Sky's memory slowly comes back, things get complicated and outrageous.
