HOLY WOW I MIGHT CRY I'm not kidding this book is so so stressful It's also super character driven the messy and angsty and heartfelt and bursting with emotions types of characters And I knew from like page 2 that this book was going to be intense Did I mention sTReSSfUL I literally had my heart in my mouth for ages omg Although I admit that was good and bad I am ALL for torturing readers lmao this is what authors live for but I found some of Sean's actions really really annoying to the point of non enjoymentBut I mean ultimately I really loved this book and the tension was INCREDIBLE so just A for the writing UGHHHHH it was good but stressful So it's a missing child story but also with a twistSean really Michael had a really neglectful mother so he ran away at 12 and sort of got himself adopted by an old lovely couple in the woods HOWEVER That's super super shady m8 so as nice as his adoptive parents were it's STILL SHADY I love these morally grey story lines omg But Sean's mother always thought he was kidnappedso he shows up home after 5 years and like THAT'S awkward to learn he ran awayAnyway this was all SUPER well written and compelling and I justI loved it I loved the complications of loving people who've done wrong Holy heckkk the starlight of my life though Trip MarchetteHe's the boy next door and Sean's childhood crush buuuuut it's complicated It's messy and it's unnamed and sometimes they're downright poisonous for each other Trip's abused by his uncle CUE MY HEART BReaKINg and Sean gets so caught up in his own self righteousness that ugh Anyway I'm STILL mad at Sean and a lot of things he said to Trip This ship I swear I shipped them so hard and they fought SO MUCH This is why I aged 17 years reading this book I'm so sTREssED by these angsty boys Ok but there is a love triangleI won't spoil things but I hated it lmao Emery who Sean meets when he goes home IS lovely and her character was excellently done but it was just so freaking frustrating to read Sean seeing her and being all instalove So bad Sean so bad And his whole looking into her eyes felt like we'd already had sexI just threw up But ok It was just hard when he was still so emotionally entwined with Trip to see him instaloving a random girli JUST HATE TRIANGLES Also there is no Australianness in it with the boomerangsAs an Australian MY FEELINGS ARE HURT Lmao just kidding but vegemite and I are totally put out Also I really love how diverse it wasIt's ueer here there and everywhere No labels are used I'm actually pro labelling things because I think it's positive and helps you find your people but I think the non labels was done respectfully I assume that Sean is probably bi or pan and Trip gay Also Trip has dyslexia and I loved how it was done I have mild dyslexia so definitely not a solid voice on this matter but it was nice to see a character who couldn't tell left from right #relatable Like the details with his dyslexia felt excellently done I seriously couldn't put it downIt was compelling the pacing was A the characters were ALL dimensional and interesting too Like even the secondary ones How freaking well written was this book right It's very character driven and full of complex and twisted emotions and moral dilemas Also it's a book to make you thinkAbout conseuences and actions About what love means and how it can show itself About selfishness and selfless ness and holding on and letting go And how GOOD did it cover these ExcellentlyBasically put me out of my misery and reeeead this too so we can be emotional wrecks together I won't lie the triangle very very nearly ruined it for me but the writing was SO GOOD and the ending just about made me cry And it managed to talk about abuse and stolkholm syndrome and drugs and ueerness and brokeness ALL SO WELL without doing anything by halvesHOLY WOW I CAN'T STOP THINKING ABOUT THIS ONE

Er As his careful plans begin to crumble so does everything he’s believed about his idyllic other life Told in gorgeous prose Boomerang is an honest authentic exploration of coming to terms with who you are what you want and how vast the distance can be between the t. I can’t tell you exactly where the idea for BOOMERANG came from One day it didn't exist and the next I knew I wanted to tell the story of a boy who everyone assumed had been kidnapped but who really hadn’t been A boy who left a bad situation and ended up with something he thought was perfect Until it wasn’t because nothing really isThe story was originally told in two points of view until I realized that Sean’s story wasn’t the story of the friends and family he’d abruptly left and then just as abruptly returned to It was the story of a boy who sees things only in black and white even though his entire life is filled with greys A boy who loves and judges everything so deeply that he isn’t able to step back and determine whether or not that love or those judgements are well placedSomething about Sean’s story struck me at my core Long before the book was chiseled into its current form I knew it was the book of my heart I knew that something in Sean’s story wasn’t going to let me go Something in his difficult complicated love for Trip and his easy but no less complicated love for Emery had gotten into my bloodstream Something about the way that Sean so blindly wrestles to figure out what “home” means and to learn that loving people doesn't make either them or yourself perfect made me feel responsible for this story in a way I hadn’t felt before in much the same way that Sean feels responsibly for Trip actually I’m thrilled to finally be able to share them with you

I just finished this beautiful character driven story of finding oneself and the complex experiences of becoming an adult I am broken and rekindled all at once This book will definitely make my top 10 this year “You need to know” he started and I closed my eyes waiting for him to punch me or tell me that he never wanted to see me again “Even when we’re old like Maggie said every time I look at you I’m going to be thinking of doing that again”Sean is a character readers won't easily forget Throughout his life he's had to make some tough decisions some of which seem selfish and selfless at the same time He's dealt with trauma and loss and goes through much heartache before getting some answers Some answers he never gets and isn't that lifeI appreciate Helene following through on the ending and giving us a bit I had accepted a different path for Sean and was happy to get the best of both worlds Sometimes we can't save others we just have to save ourselves and hope it all comes together
