First & Then By – Emma Mills


Goodreads Synopsis: Devon Tennyson wouldn’t change a thing. She’s happy watching Friday night games from the bleachers, silently crushing on best friend Cas, and blissfully ignoring the future after high school. But the universe has other plans. It delivers Devon’s cousin Foster, an unrepentant social outlier with a surprising talent for football, and the obnoxiously superior and maddeningly attractive star running back, Ezra, right where she doesn’t want them: first into her P.E. class and then into every other aspect of her life.

I went into the book not expecting the most from it but still interested enough to want the book to be good. Sadly this book was not for me.

Devon is the most boring character I’ve ever stumbled upon. Why you ask? Because she doesn’t care about anything. School? Nope. Life? Nope. Hobbies? Nope. She literally did not care. And then I stopped caring.  Look I get it, some people don’t want to go to college, some people don’t have huge goals in life. That’s okay. But everyone should care about something.  Everyone can give back to the world. Each in different ways. But Devon is not like that.  She’s just a body floating around, no soul, no nothing.

I gave this book till page 165 before quitting. Which is about 60% through the book. My advice, don’t read this book, it’s not worth the time. I gave it 1 star on Goodreads.
