Nolan Parker and Clara Lawrence never saw eye to eye. In fact, if you asked Clara she would tell you that Nolan Parker hated every thing about her. They never shared any form of connection besides Alex Lawrence.
She was Alex’s bratty sister and he was Alex’s best friend, they never stood a chance.
Five years have passed and almost 12,000 miles have kept them separated, both living completely different lives. Unchanged perceptions and expectations should have kept them apart but when Nolan returns, the foundations of their ‘relationship’ is sure to change.
Their story was meant to end the day Nolan left for Stanford. But what if seeing each other after five years was the game changer? What if this was their one chance to rewrite their relationship or were they always destined to never be more?
Thirty-Eight Days begins when Nolan has to go stay with his best friend's littler sister for a few weeks, because his best friend is worried how she's doing after a horrible break up. Clara and Nolan haven't ever been very close, actually Nolan has always seemed to hate Clara at least to Clara's way of thinking. But when these two come together after not seeing each other for five years, Nolan is thrown for a loop when he sees how beautiful Clara has become, and what a wonderful person she is.. Now he's not sure at all what to do when it comes to her, and Clara is the same way.
I did not like this book at all. I thought in the beginning it was a little bit slow, but it would get better. But I was extremely wrong. I still gave hope though, but in the end it just wasn't for me. The writing was good, but it's just the plot line and the characters I didn't like at all.
A few of the main things I didn't like were:
1) Chapter Twelve. Nolan is a major a hole (Not the good kind of a hole either.) and I felt like he never really redeemed himself from it.
2) The end was just awful. Clara and Nolan were both being stupid and idiotic. I do not even want to read the next book, because that was just not good at all.
That's about all I can say about the book without giving anything away.
