About The Book

All This Time by Mikki Daughtry, Rachael Lippincott
Published by Simon Schuster Books for Young Readers on September 29, 2020
Pages: 336

Kyle and Kimberly have been the perfect couple all through high school, but when Kimberly breaks up with him on the night of their graduation party, Kyle’s entire world upends—literally. Their car crashes and when he awakes, he has a brain injury. Kimberly is dead. And no one in his life could possibly understand.
Until Marley. Marley is suffering from her own loss, a loss she thinks was her fault. And when their paths cross, Kyle sees in her all the unspoken things he’s feeling.
As Kyle and Marley work to heal each other’s wounds, their feelings for each other grow stronger. But Kyle can’t shake the sense that he’s headed for another crashing moment that will blow up his life as soon as he’s started to put it back together.
And he’s right.

Our Thoughts

All This Time is a heavy hitting contemporary in a deceptively packaged as the cover is gorgeous while the story is messy, complex and real.

Now for me, its evocative prose and scenes were a plus in my book. As I have said in times past, I like books and stories that make me feel things, and there isn’t a steep learning curve where my wheelhouse is concerned. Some looking for happier reads might find it too heavy. You’ve been warned.

Our protagonist Kyle, former quarterback on his Varsity high school team, is so sure that he had life figured out. While at times he could be a little angsty- what YA male character isn’t- I found Kyle’s voice/author’s tone compelling and relatable. While there should be TWs for grief at the death of a loved one, survivor’s guilt, discussion of suicide, etc… the authors treat issues of grief and loss sensitively and honestly.

There were a handful of twists that I wasn’t expecting for a contemporary romance and there was even a point where I wondered what could possibly happen next.

Overall, we adored this book, gave it 5 stars and recommend to anyone who loves a solid social issue contemporary novel..
