I need a heavy angsty read. Out of Breath is written, but now it's in the hands of my publisher and we have some crazy editing to do and new covers to design! It's out of my control, so sorry! Dec 28, OK so June is way too far away. Dec 15, Hi Rebecca tks for the add!

I'm dying to read Out of Breath, June will not come soon enough! Keep up the awesome work! So, let's talk about the books predictability. I have already got a good idea on what happened, right before the second half of the book started.

There were a lot of clues here and there which totally destroyed the whole mystery aspect for me. The pacing was a slow burn for me. Thumbs down for this one. For enjoyability , not really sure if I did. It was okay. I couldn't rate it higher than 2 stars though. For books that I have a problem with the plot, my rating actually gets raised because of the characters. They compesate for the obvious lack of plot development which wasn't the case here. There was a plot.

I just didn't enjoy the plot. I have to give the author props for trying to keep the mysteriousness althroughout the book. It really kept me reading, although I was getting a bit upset when it dragged too long.

Last Words This book wasn't for me. Usually, books that deal with real life issues, move me to tears. I cry easily over sad books, movies, stories, even songs. But this book, didn't do anything for me. It didn't make me cry. It didn't touch me. I felt bad for some of the characters, but wasn't sad about it. I didn't sympathize with a lot of stuff that went on.

Anyways, that's all for this review. For those of you who want to know the secret and is not in any way interested in reading this View all 3 comments. Hell yeah, Sign me up!! This is really a story of a group of four friends who grew up How perceived "slights" weren't slights at all. And what the heck? Why not throw in a love story too. This book had me hooked from the get go.

I fell for Cal hard especially because he is sooo taken by Nyelle. He just can't get enough! Nyelle is very intriguing But her activities were so interesting and fun!

I couldn't fault Cal for going This is really a story of a group of four friends who grew up I couldn't fault Cal for going along and looking forward to what crazy stuff she came up with next. It was sooo sweet and frustrating. Just like those fade to black steamy scenes! I loved getting Cal's POV and the story is told in the present but we get chapters from the past and in some of the other friend's POVs.

It really helped with shedding some light on things. I really enjoyed Rae and Richelle but some of the things were hard to read. We've all gone through friendships that haven't lasted and have done things when we were younger that we regretted. There are a couple of twists I think most people will catch what's going on.

It just takes a while to get any confirmation. I think it ended well and I loved the epilogue. I'm always wanting more but I do like that this is a standalone at least it is right now.

I like it. I blink quickly, trying to appear alert. And then… I fall backward. The girl I will forever regret if I let you go. View all 41 comments.

What a pleasant surprise, filled with many heartfelt and emotional moments Cal was a hero to swoon over and I absolutely loved his voice. I loved that he was the narrator most of this story and then we see a different pov from the past.

Wow, I'm astounded. It was nothing what I expected. It was so much more. I kept guessing what was the big reveal and then I wasn't sure. It definitely had me thinking and trying to solve the mystery behind this story. And when it was finally revealed, I was in tears. And it wasn't at all what I'd been guessing.

My heart broke for these characters. They each played roles that were important to the story. And I loved them all. I loved the snippets of their childhood and how it tied into the present. So good.

When I pick a book up by Rebecca Donovan, you can guarantee that my day will be cancelled. I Will do absolutely nothing but sit and not just read, but live the book. She manages to drain me of just about every emotion possible, just in the course of one novel. As much as I love reading her books, I hate when it comes time to review them because what could I possibly say that would even come close to explaining this authors talent?

Even the word "talent" itself doesn't seem enough. What If just ble When I pick a book up by Rebecca Donovan, you can guarantee that my day will be cancelled.

What If just blew me away. There was no way I could put it down, even if I tried. I Loved the mystery to it. I had constant theories running through my head. I loved experiencing the story from the multiple POVs, and getting a deeper understanding of the characters. I loved the friendships, the romance, the emotion I can honestly say that there wasn't anything that I didn't love. Before reading What If it had been so long since I'd cried at a book, I'd had friends questioning if I had a pulse.

But What If made it happen. Such a beautiful, cleverly told story. Rebecca Donovan takes my breath away with every novel, and this was no exception. Perfection, from beginning to end. Jan 22, Tahsin added it. View all 4 comments. She has created another emotional story with great characters and I'm sure her fans will love this novel. This is actually a really hard book to review though, not because I didn't enjoy it but because I would hate to spoil it for anyone so I'm going to keep this deliberately vague.

What If is a story about friendships, it introduces readers to four 3. What If is a story about friendships, it introduces readers to four childhood friends who grew apart when one of them moved away and another started hanging out with a new group. The story is told from Cal's point of view in the present but we get to see flashbacks told from Nicole's, Richelle's and Rae's perspectives and it is through these flashbacks that we gradually learn what happened to them and why they started drifting apart.

The focus of the story is the friendships between the four main characters but it also has a lot of great themes about living life to the fullest and being the person you want to be rather than trying to live up to other people's expectations. It's about following your dreams and taking chances so that you're not looking back with regrets.

It's also about how childhood friendships can shape you and the importance of being true to both yourself and the people you love. I know this review is vague but if you like coming of age stories and you enjoy a good mystery then I'm sure you'll love What If.

I was already a fan of Rebecca Donovan but I'll definitely be keeping an eye on her to see what she comes up with next. Jun 30, Ad Rocks Socks rated it liked it Shelves: Jan 23, Patrycja rated it liked it.

Mar 21, Ana Dumitrache rated it liked it. What If e un roman de la care eu aveam alte asteptari si despre care nu pot spune ca mi-a placut, dar nici ca a fost o pierdere de vreme. A fost o lectura ok, mai mult pentru adolescenti, destul de scurta si usor de citit. Nu mi-am dorit sa o abandonez, mai ales ca a existat si putin suspans si chiar am fost curioasa in privinta finalului. Ce mi-a displacut insa cel mai tare a fost faptul ca autoarea a exagerat cu multe situatii, iar explicatiile au fost trase de par: Fiind o carte cu si despre adolescenti, a avut din plin clisee, insa a avut si putina profunzime, ceea ce a fost un plus pentru mine.

Nu mi-au placut personajele, nu ca ar fi fost construite prost, ci pentru ca nu le-am apreciat caracterul.

Rebecca Donovan

Poate un adolescent ar simti altfel povestea si chiar ar admira-o pe Nicole si l-ar iubi pe Cal. In fine, nu vreau sa mai critic ca poate ati vrea sa-l cititi si nu's eu contra. Povestea chiar e buna, intriga m-a facut si pe mine sa-i dau o sansa. E vorba de un grup de prieteni: Cal, Nicole, Rea si Richella, care, desi foarte apropiati cand erau mici, ajung sa se desparta din cauza imprejurarilor si sa ramana fiecare cu amintiri si resentimente.

Nicole pleaca la Harvard si nu mai da niciun semn de viata, Rea si Cal raman apropiati, iar Richella rupe brusc orice relatie si se muta. Ani mai tarziu, la facultate, Cal o recunoaste pe Nicole, insa descopera ca nu e ea, ci altcineva: Nyelle e identica Nicole, insa total schimbata ca personalitate, lucru care ii bulverseaza pe Cal si Rea si decid astfel sa descopere ce s-a intamplat de fapt in trecut, ce le-a stricat relatia si unde au disparut cele doua prietene.

Mi-a placut faptul ca am avut parte de mai multe perspective si ca am cunoscut varianta de poveste a fiecaruia si am apreciat faptul ca autoarea a dorit sa ii dea o nota profunda si sa abordeze o tema sensibila in randul adolescentilor.

A fost un roman construit ok, care a avut putin din toate, insa nu a excelat la ceva anume, din punctul meu de vedere. Sep 11, Jacqueline's Reads rated it really liked it Shelves: All I can say is that if you want a bumping ride, intense book, frustrating, pull-your-hair-out, just scream book, then THIS.

Where the girl meets a guy and changes his life upside down by just being fun and free spirited? Cal 4 Frustrating Stars What If was a very difficult read for me. Cal had a really loving childhood. He had a group of friends who he loved, but once they all reached high school, everything changed and Nicole, his closest friend, stopped talking to him. Cal is instantly drawn to her and needs to find out if Nyelle is Nicole.

You would want to be her friend. The girl volunteers at homeless shelters, visits sick kids and eats a lot of sugar. I liked him, but he frustrated me at times. Is Nyelle Nicole and why does Nyelle act the way she acts? I think my issue with books with secrets is that it drives me nuts while I read it, but it did get me to read it in two sittings, because I had to find out. So hence my mix feelings. You are screaming for someone to just talk it out.

However, with all that said, What If is written well and you are jumping page to page. Sometimes you want those crazy books, sometimes those crazy books that make you scream, rip your hair out and fuss are really good ones that leave you breathless and like me, reeling.

Aug 31, Rebecca rated it it was amazing Shelves: Often times you read books and love them but rarely do you read a book that touches your soul. For me, What If, is one of those unique books. I not only loved this story, but it left me pondering my own life and relationships with those around me.

This book unfolds like a symphony; there are multiple layers and in order to fully appreciate it, you must experience the entire piece. I had no idea of the direction it was headed throughout most of the book, and that is the beauty of it.

There are ma Often times you read books and love them but rarely do you read a book that touches your soul. What would my life be like. While I am not usually a fan of flashbacks, they work exceptionally well in this storyline. As a reader, the best way to deliver them is with the flashbacks. He is the kind of friend you want to have and eventually fall in love with. There is an outstanding supporting cast, including childhood friends and family.

While I immediately loved Cal, I could not say the same thing for Nyelle. She is a complete enigma and it took me most of the book to truly understand her. It was difficult not to form opinions about her until the story was complete. She has a beautiful soul and I truly loved her outlook on life.

They can take away your pain and distant, like a memory. My advice is to not even bother trying to unravel them because you will not! Just take a deep breath and enjoy the journey. View 2 comments. They used to be close but Nicole left him behind for a new set of friends.

Gone is the shy person and instead Nyelle is outgoing and strangely addictive. But unfortunately I was left disappointed.

What If is a mysterious story about four childhood friends who seem to lose touch of the years. During the story we have Cal telling the main part of the story but we also get flash backs from the other characters told from when their childhood days. I enjoyed how the story was told. Going back and forth from past to present but I struggled to connect to the childhood days.

The main issue for me were the characters. They were all so flat. She acted half-crazy most of the time and was really aloof. And eventually by the time I came to the end of the story and the big reveal happened, I had no excitement for it.

I was actually pretty disappointed with it. Thank you to Penguin for giving me the opportunity to review this book in exchange for an honest review. My heart, it bleeds. That was good. Need to process before review. The type of book that you need to go into blind.

The synopsis is vague but makes you want to know more. What you get instead is not anything what you expected. I know that What If will not be leaving me anytime soon. The whole time while reading I kept asking myself, what's going on? And why can't I make any guesses as to what will happen? The book is gorgeously written and takes My heart, it bleeds.

The book is gorgeously written and takes the reader into both past and present as we travel on this epic journey. It's more than just a novel. It's about finding yourself in a world that's really messed the hell up.

I know Donovan had me guessing until the very end and once I knew what I did, I had a complete sense of emptiness. These characters will lodge themselves in your heart and demand to stay there. I'll tell you one thing, What If wont be leaving me anytime soon. If you haven't already, pick this book up, and experience it for all its glory. Sep 16, Paz rated it liked it. I love me some mystery. Especially the ones where you can't flip the pages fast enough.

However, this book was just too slow for me that I almost did not finish it but I was determined to unravel the mystery hoping for the best. Unfortunately, the build up leading to the revelation was just mediocre.

The flashbacks were a bit of a let down and confusing as there were too many characters. Honestly, I ended up not caring too much about the flashbacks and the present story. I just wanted the big re I love me some mystery. I just wanted the big reveal. Thinking about it, why didn't I just read the spoilers???

Anyhow, this was just ok. Mar 19, i. This is a gripping story about friendship and love and how sometimes friends become much more important in our lives than our own families.

Believe it or not, even though we've worked on three books together, that's a first! I love, love, LOVE this story. I missed the characters when we finished the writing stage.

I fell in love with at least 4 of them. This story has it all: I think you're all going to love it too! Sep 17, Cissie rated it it was amazing. What an interesting story. It had a unique plot I don't recall ever reading before. This group of 4 friends were so endearing, I especially liked how the chapters switched from past to present. Aug 07, Jennifer rated it really liked it Shelves: She is one of my go-to authors, where I don't even have to read the synopsis or know what it's about before starting the book.

I know I'm going to love it! Cal is the only boy amongst the 3 girls, who each have their own special relationship with him. Rae is his best friend, the person he talks to every As a huge fan of the Breathing series, I was thrilled to see that Rebecca Donovan was releasing the novel What If. Rae is his best friend, the person he talks to every day, the person he can tell anything to, and the one that knows him best.

Richelle is the fun loving, free spirit who is his first kiss and first girlfriend. Nicole is the pretty, perfect, sweet and shy one who finds comfort in just spending quiet time with him. They are all inseparable until Richelle has to suddenly move before 8th grade. Although Cal and Rae continue to be the best of friends, Nicole has now joined the popular clique and treats them as if they don't exist.

What used to be the tightest friendship has now fallen apart. Cal doesn't know why it happened, but Richelle and Nicole are never far from his thoughts. Scrawny throughout his childhood and high school, Cal finally shoots up several inches and fills out nicely when he starts college in a small upstate NY college town. Crenshaw is a long way away from his hometown in California. He now has his pick of any girl on campus, but no matter how many girls he dates, he can never commit.

Everything changes though, the day he meets Nyelle. She looks just like his childhood friend Nicole but with a completely different personality. She is the not the flawless and reserved girl that he knew all his life. This version doesn't wear makeup, style her hair or care what she's wearing.

She's fun, free, wild, and happy. The story was intriguing and as it progressed I had multiple guesses and conclusions as to what was happening, but there was not a clear answer until the very end. The story takes place in both the present and the past, interchanging each chapter. The present is always in the point of view of Cal. The past is told in multiple points of view, amongst the four friends.

What If is a very clean and easy read which I really enjoyed. I could pick it up at any point and not have to worry about re-reading chapters or pages. It's sort of a New Adult novel but written as YA. The female characters in the story were very well written. In my opinion though, Cal was underdeveloped.

He came across as unenthusiastic and had a watered down personality. I don't think that he would be the type of guy most girls would flock to in real life. I really wanted him to talk more, feel more and verbalize his feelings. There were times when he did though and these were some of my favorite scenes. Although not an "ugly cry", it definitely left me teary eyed, feeling both sad and happy.

The book will make you think about your "what if" situation - what you would do if you could finally be the person you've always wanted to be. There are some important messages delivered in What If, that as a parent, I want to share with my children. Most importantly, don't live the life that others want for you, live the life that you want for yourself. It's a lesson I wish I had learned long ago An ARC was kindly provided by the Author for an honest review.

Che cosa sarebbe successo se una nostra decisione fosse stata diversa? Se avessi preso un altra strada? Se avessi fatto un altra scelta? Ma sicuramente non si puo' dire che sia una lettura fluida e scorrevole. Ti affezioni ai personaggi a poco a poco. Ma sei talmente curioso di sapere dove l'autrice vuole andare a parare che non puoi interrompere la lettura. Ma bisogna riconoscerle il merito di riuscire alla fine sempre a districarsi e a convincere.

Lo consiglierei??? Mamma mia una domanda difficilissima Aug 15, Mlpmom Book Reviewer rated it really liked it Shelves: The NA genre is a hard one for me. I use to love it and read every single thing released and then I think I got burned out on it and I found it harder and harder to really love what I was finding.

Very rarely and sadly do I pick one up anymore and expect to get a truly unique story and to be blown away by not only my love for the characters but the intricately woven plot line as well. Donovan managed to do just that. She blew me away. Not only was this well written by the mystery behind everyth The NA genre is a hard one for me.

Not only was this well written by the mystery behind everything was so well played out. So well concealed until that final moment it was unveiled. Not only that, but the boy rocked. So darn sweet and swoon worthy.

The flash backs from childhood memories to the now were so tender and emotional. I adored Nicole and Richelle and my heart went out to both of them. They were adorable and it was heartwarming to see them grow up through each other's eyes. All of the characters were extremely fleshed out which is also quite rare these days.

I felt like I truly knew each one and got to be in their head of sorts with each new thing revealed about them. Even though I guessed early on what was happening and had happened it didn't matter.

This was still such a great well written story that I was completely caught up in it until the very end. This will not be my last Donovan book, not by a long shot.

Another favorite from Rebecca Donovan! Cal Logan sees his childhood friend, Nicole Bentley, thousands of miles from home. Except this girl's name is Nyelle Preston. Is she Nicole or Nyelle? What happened to Nicole?
