★★★★
Oliver Hurst has always been abnormally normal.

His grades are horrible, his best friend just left for Utah, and he’s depressed. His overly religious parents don’t help, especially since they control every facet of his life. One stupid sentence said in desperation gets Oliver tossed in an adolescent psych ward, where his depression and fears become even more of a reality.

When Oliver meets snide, tough girl Lacey Waters he doesn’t think his life could get any better, that is, until she becomes the ray of sunshine he has desperately needed on his cloudiest of days.

Is it possible to hate a book so much that you love it? So my usual genre is fantasy/paranormal but sometimes I just need to cleanse the pallet with a good old romance, well that’s what I was expecting. And, well, that’s what I got but it wasn’t one of those cookie cutter romances where it’s too perfect to be true. A Million Little Snowflakes was so much more than romance. It incorporated hard times that a person has to go through as well has the importance and impact of friends and family. But I don’t want to give too much away/

A Million Little Snowflakes was beautifully written. I wish I knew a better word because beautiful does not even do it justice. Every word seemed to be hand picked with thought and care. There was not a word out of place. The sentences were surprisingly witty, with little phrases and statements that connected the readers to the characters on a familiarity basis. Logan Bryne en-captured me and took me on a journey that wasn’t as clear as I thought it would be.

I fell in love alongside the characters. These may be the most perfectly developed characters I have read in a while with a romance that wasn’t too mushy, it was just right and… normal. This wasn’t just a book about depression or crazy people, it was honestly a huge eye opener in areas I didn’t expect.

I must admit, there is one tiny piece I want to confront. I was disappointed that the concept of “A million snowflakes” was not more incorporated.  It was obviously included, but I felt as if there were more things the author could have done with it, a missed opportunity.

The ending takes you on an emotional roller coaster. I hated it, but that just made me love it more. This book made me feel so many emotions, and I simply love that. I found it to be a wonderful, quick read. It would probably be especially interesting if you have an interest in psychology, as do I. I recommend this book with my entire heart!
