Why Because I read the epilogue of this book beforehand and it still broke my heart Can you imagine if I d been unprepared Because I don t even want to think about it Izzy Tristan is a contemporary retelling, based on the story of Iseult and Tristan of which I d never heard of before now I am an uncultured swine.The pair meet after Izzy and her family move into Tristan s neighbourhood, and while the relationship between them isinsta lovey than I usually like, Shannon Dunlap kind of makes it work Because while the two were quick to call it love, their initial meeting and their curiosity about each other were very sweet and believable What follows is a romance that is passionate and sweet and forbidden they sneak out to see each other after dark to avoid unwanted attention and devise innocent meetings spots Shannon Dunlap s writing is simply gorgeous it is emotive and pretty without coming across as pretentious, and I can t wait to see where she goes next Thank you to Orion

on quickly at the end left much to be desired and the mention of Black Lives Matter and the events surrounding the movement felt like it was thrown in to tick a box I thought the main storyline would end differently and it felt like half stepping to have things wrap up in the way they did AN INDIES INTRODUCE PICK WINTER SPRING Izzy, A Practical Minded Teen Who Intends To Become A Doctor, Isn T

this, my loves, was not the retelling I was talking about I had so, so, so many issues with this I did not care for the story or the characters I never connected to any part of it It was nothingthan MEH. Izzy Tristian is a romance following the lives of two kids living in Brooklyn that magically fall in love the first time they see each other I loved this book because I could tell how genuine the characters were and was able to imagine how difficult their lives were becoming With a heartbreaking ending, I wish it had been different, but I recognize that in any romance there has to be tragedy I would highly recommend this book to my friends.
