The Autumn Leaf by Brittany Tarkington is a stand-alone coming of age story.
Autumn hasn’t had it easy. Making the decision to go from Texas to Washington state for college might have been the easiest thing Autumn has faced. Autumn plans to keep her head down, focus on school and do what she needs to do. That is until she meets Liam. Autumn keeps him at a distance at first but that just doesn’t work for Liam. He needs to spend more time with her and getting Autumn to tutor him might just be the way to do it. As Autumn spends more time with Liam, she realizes they have a lot in common. Appearances can be deceiving. Just because he seems to have it all together on the outside doesn’t make it a reality. Autumn and Liam keep each other’s secrets and Autumn realizes she might have something worth fighting for. Will she remember that just when Liam needs her to?
I absolutely loved this book! I read it in one sitting. I couldn’t put it down! The characters were great! Autumn definitely grew as a person throughout the story. I definitely recommend this book!
