A Novel by Hannah Bucchin 

Storyline: Mitchell Morrison and Josie Sedgwick have spent their whole lives at the Indian Paintbrush Community Village, a commune full of colorful characters tucked in the mountains of North Carolina, and they aren’t particularly close―at least, not anymore. Josie wishes she could spend all of her time at Paintbrush planting tomatoes, hiking the trails, or throwing giant communal birthday parties, while Mitchell can’t wait to escape the bizarre spiritual sharing and noisy community dinners. Luckily for both of them, high school graduation is just around the corner. But when Mitchell’s mother makes a scandalous announcement that rocks the close-knit Paintbrush community, and Josie’s younger sister starts to make some dangerously bad decisions, the two find themselves leaning on each other for support―and looking at each other in a whole new light. Their childhood friendship blossoms in to something more as they deal with their insane families, but as graduation approaches, so does life in the real world, forcing Josie and Mitchell to figure out what, exactly, their relationship is―and if it can survive their very different plans for the future.

Okay so the two main characters were so adorable and so fun something about them made me love them from the very first page! It switches between their POV throughout the book and I like the way it was done, a lot of books often switch without mentioning it and then you end up having to guess who’s POV you’re reading from. in this one it clearly tells you who’s POV each chapter is, And I loved that. The story itself isn’t a huge plot twisty type of story or anything it’s just a fun, sweet, light, feel good, contemporary book with real life problems, drama and real life scenarios that are completely relatable. It was so good! The feel of the community and the overall views and scenery described in this book just knocked my socks off. I could imagine them so vividly that it took my breath away a few times, and made me really want to find a place like paintbrush because that type of family and loving environment sounds delightful!! I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Ya’ll should really read this book!! 

I rate this book
