A Sense of the Infinite by Hilary T. Smith

Blurb (from Goodreads):
It’s senior year of high school, and Annabeth is ready—ready for everything she and her best friend, Noe, have been planning and dreaming. But there are some things Annabeth isn’t prepared for, like the constant presence of Noe’s new boyfriend. Like how her relationship with her mom is wearing and fraying. And like the way the secret she’s been keeping hidden deep inside her for years has started clawing at her insides, making it harder to eat or even breathe. But most especially, she isn’t prepared to lose Noe. For years, Noe has anchored Annabeth and set their joint path. Now Noe is drifting in another direction, making new plans and dreams that don’t involve Annabeth. Without Noe’s constant companionship, Annabeth’s world begins to crumble. But as a chain of events pulls Annabeth further and further away from Noe, she finds herself closer and closer to discovering who she’s really meant to be—with her best friend or without.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was a story about one girl’s last year of high-school, and her ups and downs as the year went along.

I felt quite sorry for Annabeth in this story; her relationship with Noe meant so much to her, and the way she was so easily discarded was awful.

The storyline in this basically covered Annabeth’s last year of high-school and all the things that happened to her, touching on some teenage problems such as eating disorders, teenage pregnancy, and falling out with her best friend. There were so many small storylines in this that it didn’t really feel like there was a main storyline to me, just loads of little things happening to Annabeth over a year of her life, which was okay, but felt a little disjointed at times.

There wasn’t really any romance in this one, other than seeing other people’s failed romances.

The ending to this was okay, and it was clear that Annabeth had been through a lot during the course of the book, I just felt like there was a little something missing for me though.
6 out of 10.
