Can you have a soulmate, good question? What does a soulmate look like and what does the term really mean anyway? Are you best mates in your soul, or are you linked in a spiritual kind of way?
Every so often, two people are born who are the perfect matches for each other. Soulmates. But while the odds of this happening are about as likely as being struck by lightning, when these people do meet and fall in love…thunderstorms, lightning strikes and lashings of rain are only the beginning of their problems.
Enter Poppy, the 17-year-old cynic with a serious addiction to banana milk, and Noah, the heart-throb guitarist; residents of mediocre Middletown, sometime students, and…soulmates.
After a chance meeting at a local band night, Poppy and Noah find themselves swept up in a whirlwind romance unlike anything they’ve ever experienced before. But with a secret international agency preparing to separate them, a trail of destruction rumbling in their wake, (and a looming psychology coursework deadline), they are left with an impossible choice between the end of the world, or a life without love
Holly reviews it this way:
Soulmates was an awesome read that I cannot recommend enough! Don't be intimidated by the length - it's perfectly paced so that it while it flies by super quickly it isn't rushed, nor is it dragged out over too many pages. With a perfect mix of contemporary YA romance and the supernatural, it's definitely not one to be missed.
