My Rating: 5 Stars
I fell in love with Ellie Carmichael in On Dublin Street. I loved her optimism, her cheerfulness, her romantic heart... everything. I was so excited when I saw that Samantha Young had written a novella that was to go into the back story of Ellie and Adam. How after all the years of knowing each other, being as close as brother and sister, the age difference... and through all the obstacles how did they finally get together? Well here is our chance to find out.
This novella is mostly told through the reading of Ellie's journals. She has been keeping them since she was little and starts when she was very young and her crush for Adam first started. Even though there is a pretty big age gap between Ellie and Adam, and her crush starts when she is quite young, it never felt weird or awkward. Nothing really happens between the two of them until Ellie is of age.
I loved seeing how through the years the protectiveness that Adam has over Ellie was turning into love and how he was doing his best to fight the feelings because he didn't want to hurt her or Braden. How Ellie struggled with her feelings when they were not always clearly returned.
But as much as I enjoyed getting this glimpse into their lives, I also enjoyed seeing some of the parts we all know and love from On Dublin Street from Ellie's point of view. It was great seeing a little bit more of Joss and Braden.
