Amberlyn staying friends with her ex and best friend isn't a normal reaction. I don't blame Aiden being upset. I really can't stand Skylar and Jonie and their blaise attitude.
Uh oh... you're going to HATE the next few chapters!
I like the way this is going, personally. High school kids need more literature that shows them how friendship and romance can and should mix.
All I'm going to say is I loved the music video at the end. Wow, that brings back memories. LOL!
I’m not a Skyler and Jonnie fan either so I hope we get a super good happily ever after chapter! 😉 Kids do need to know how to be friends, but that couple kind of threw her under the bus. I’m glad she’s getting closure but I hope she will also see what’s in front of her and embrace it.
I’m curious, you guys, did you read Pass Me the Ball? Because I’m wondering if it’s just THIS book that portrays Skyler and Jonnie in such a horrible light, or if you hated them in Pass Me the Ball also. I can still make changes. Jonnie and Skyler are two of my favorite characters; I don’t want people to hate them. Yet, this does make for great drama in the story. Do you honestly hate the characters? Or is this more like yelling at the damsel in the horror film, “Don’t walk into that dark alleyway alone you stupid woman!”
I honestly didn’t prefer Skyker and Jonnie even in Pass Me the Ball. I think I just didn’t feel like they were that good of friends with Amberlyn. I felt like Amberlyn was the giver and the other two were just taking. But I’m going to go back and reread it to see. It definitely does make for great drama I just didn’t connect with them like I did some of your other couples.
