L is for Landslide by Jenn Cooksey

So my 'L' post is about a book that was good but I didn't find it great.

Landslide by Jenn Cooksey is about a girl named Erica whose life was forever changed by a boy she grew up with named Cole and his best friend Holden. Growing up Cole and Erica were very close. Out of every girl in his life she meant the most to him. When Erica begins dating Holden, Cole puts his feelings on the back burner but continues to be her best friend. When a tragic accident brings them closer together, not only does Cole have to reevaluate his feelings for Erica, but she has to reevaluate her feelings for Cole.

So I liked the book. I had a couple problems with it though.  One I hated how Erica treated Cole. She wasn't fair to him at all. There were a couple times in the book I wanted to slap her. I loved Cole, I liked his aloofness and the fact that he was so hot that people thought he was gay just because he never had a girlfriend.

I loved the ending! It was a great twist I didn't see coming.  I love when books have those kind of endings.  The writing was good, a little too much in some places with inner monologues and descriptions. But other than that I liked it.

For Erica and Cole, the bond of friendship was forged in childhood.

Now, torn and broken by grief, that bond will become paramount as two friends look to one another for comfort, strength, and hope in the aftermath of loss. On a journey taken both together and alone, Erica and Cole search for healing and life born anew. Although when mistakes, secrets and betrayal are revealed, the two must each learn to accept that even saints and some angels are human and people aren’t always who they appear to be.

But in the age old struggle to forget and forgive, realization dawns. And with it, so does the understanding that sometimes, the sturdiest foundation for the future lies buried in the dust of the past. Because, for some people…

…love is friendship caught on fire.
