Both Elisha (Ellie) and Jeremiah (Miah) attend Percy Academy, a private school where neither quite fits in. Ellie is wrestling with family demons, and Miah is one of the few African American students. The two of them find each other, and fall in love — but they are hesitant to share their newfound happiness with their friends and families, who will not understand. At the end, life makes the brutal choice for them.
If You Come SoftlyIf You Come Softly by Jacqueline Woodson

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I read this one for the Life’s Library Book Club. I didn’t love it but I didn’t hate it. Perhaps I’m not the target demographic or can hold my attention enough to appreciate it. I’d recommend it to those that are more in the middle school age group.

The premise and tone were definitely there but the writing style, character development, and plot reveal were so incredibly slow for my style. It’s one of those books where you can read the first and last page and know the entire book.
