The Foundation series by Kira Adams – The real, the raw, the gritty.
This series is nothing if not completely real. It starts and ends at two different ends of the spectrum, but the journey in between is completely entrancing. Peyton is, like many of us, a girl lacking in self esteem and it is holding her back. Enter Jace. He is nothing she ever could have expected, even when he’s a disappointment. There’s nothing like falling in love, and nothing as heartbreaking as the ups and downs and downright terrible things it can make you do. I found myself rooting for people I’d originally cast off. And I found myself over and over again thinking, wow, this is what it’s like to be young and unsure of yourself and trying to navigate a serious relationship at the same time. It isn’t easy and it isn’t rainbows and unicorn farts, as Peyton might say.
We begin with Pieces of Me. A painful introduction, though it quickly becomes clear things will go one direction, wrenches get thrown in left and right. By the end of this novel I had so many feels I didn’t know what to do with them.
In The Fighter, we switch to Jace’s pov, an interesting change and one that shows us a different perspective on Peyton. Jace has more to deal with than one person can handle and it isn’t something he seems able to admit. I kept hoping things would get better, these poor kids have all these things getting in the way of their happily ever after. Can’t they catch a break?
Finally, or for now at least, we have The Road Back to Us. This book’s focus isn’t quite like the other two, because it seems as if Jayton are now going their separate ways, and they must find themselves before they can find out if they will be in each other’s lives ever again. We get dual pov to give us more insight into the two very different yet intertwining destinies these two seem to have. I don’t want to give away the ending, but after a great deal of controversy and heartache, I was hoping for some redemption. You’ll have to read it to find out if that’s what happens. But know that this is not your typical boy and girl fall in love and live happily ever after. This is real life. This is bumpy and gross and sometimes intolerable, but remains hopeful.
