Meant To Be-Tiffany King.
Krista Miller feels like she has lived her entire life in a glass box with her every emotion on display. She can’t help feeling like a defect as her sensitivities have made her socially inept and without any real friends; the one exception being the boy that visits her each night in her dreams.
Krista’s emotions are put to the test when a move to California triggers a devastating change to her fantasy world. The nightly comfort that the boy provides has now become a recurring nightmare as he is taken from her by an unseen force.
Struggling to appear normal, Krista enrolls in a new school and finds it to be nothing like she thought. Her new life is sent spiraling out of control from a strange connection with a boy, Mark, who claims to know all her secrets.
As Krista begins to explore the emotions that Mark evokes in her, secrets about their mysterious past and their predestined purpose threatens to separate them just when they have found each other.
Can a dream become reality and why is Krista so inexplicably drawn to Santa Cruz?
After Krista’s Dad’s passing, her Mum, much to Krista’s surprise and joy, decides they should move to Santa Cruz and make a new start. On her first day at her new school, Krista be-friend’s Sam and realises they have so much in common that maybe there is more to it. Maybe they have some kind of connection but what? Soon after, she meets Mark and, Sam’s boyfriend, Shawn. They all share this freaky connection although Krista’s connection to Mark is much more intense.
I love the main character, Krista. She actually reminds me of myself. She loves chocolate and could quite happily spend hours in a book store. The relationship she has with her mum is just lovely. I felt so sad when they had their little “hiccup”. It’s pretty much how I feel when in The Gilmore Girls Rory and her mum have that big fall out. I just really felt for them and hoped that things would be ok.
The relationship between Krista and Mark is pretty intense but, because of certain things that have happened, you can understand why.
When I first started reading Meant To Be I actually thought it was just going to be a romance story but then it takes this sudden, exciting turn where it’s no longer focused on romance but on fighting for their lives against an unexpected villain.
Meant To Be is an incredibly sweet and suspenseful story with a very interesting turn of events. The story flows beautifully and the character development was great. A perfect summer read! I never wanted it to end. I have it as an eBook and just kept swiping the screen and saying, “Noooo but I don’t want it to end there!” and was extremely happy to discover there was to be a sequel as there is so much we have yet to learn about the characters, their past and why they are the way they are. I’m looking forward to the sequel, Forgotten Souls so much which will hopefully be released at the end of this month!
I rate this 5/5
