Letting Go

It is so hard to let go of the past. Sometimes the past can be a very heavy burden to carry around.

Letting Go is a story written from the perspective of 19 year-old sophomore-college student Cori Elliott. The story is situated at the college campus and all aspects of student life are well described (from lectures to parties). It was easy to enter the story, and the author managed to keep me interested the whole time. There is just enough drama to keep story interesting. The drama mainly concerns Cori and Luke’s relationship, and Cori’s relationship with her friend Amber. The conflicts, just like the dialogues, are well written and highly realistic. The combination of good dialogues and right dose of conflict is what makes this story flow nicely.

Both the main and secondary characters are very well written. Cori is a complex character, full of doubts and guilt, but on the other hand she is strong, very strong, and she does not need prince charming to get her out of the trouble. I like the way she grew by the end of the story and how she realized her faults and finally made herself let go of the past. Although the story is written from the first person POV, the author did good job in bringing to life other characters. I especially like Amber and Luke's friend Josh. They give special flavor to the story. But all the characters are three dimensional and they seem like fun crowd.

Letting go is nice story and I enjoyed reading it. It is an easy and satisfying read that I recommend for this hot summer days.

Cori Elliott cannot let go of tragic events that happened in the past. Her boyfriend committed suicide after they had fight. But without letting go of the past she cannot find happiness. Is she willing to sacrifice her new relationship because of the guilt she carries around?
