Some love is infinite
"Don’t have a best friend that’s a girl" — this was the advice from my older cousin. I didn’t take it. Because he followed with, "friends don’t f*ck friends. And you’ll want to f*ck her."
It was terrible advice.
My cousin should’ve told me that being best friends with Baylee Wright — since she was twelve — would be the best and worst decision of my life.
He should have told me to protect her from what was coming.
He should have told me that when a darkness crawled towards us, there’d be no safety net.
Now I’ve signed back on to the same Vegas acrobatic show as Baylee, working together for the first time in years. And she tells me that she’s having trouble in a certain “area” of her life — because of our past.
“You can help me fix it,” she says.
And then she hands me a list.
Infini by Krista and Becca Ritchie is an epic young adult forbidden romance.
Lucka and Baylee are best friends turned teenage lovers. They are both members of a Cirque du Soleil style acrobatic circus, and unfortunately for them teenage cast members are forbidden to date. Breaking this firm rule results in pain and sets in motion serious repercussions that span nearly a decade.
My main issue is that I found the reasoning behind the rule to be flimsy and the solution to the crisis to be unbelievable. Also, the synopsis refers to Baylee’s list of things she needs Lucka’s help with. You all know we’re not talking about help moving furniture or anything. It’s rather deceptive since the list is a transparent ploy to get them together again, and it’s is quickly forgotten.
A huge strength of this book is its unflinching examination of mental illness. Overall, I enjoyed the story and the bond between the family members. The book features some really strong and interesting supporting characters, including an antagonist that you will absolutely hate. It’s a bit long for my taste, but the plot is engaging. I listened to the audio book version and was blown away by Jonathan McClain’s narration! I think this book would be a hit with YA fans.
