The Infinite Moment of Us by Lauren Myracle Book Review

The Infinite Moment of UsFor as long as she can remember, Wren Gray’s goal has been to please her parents. But as high school graduation nears, so does an uncomfortable realization: Pleasing her parents once overlapped with pleasing herself, but now... not so much. Wren needs to honor her own desires, but how can she if she doesn’t even know what they are?

Charlie Parker, on the othe
r hand, is painfully aware of his heart’s desire. A gentle boy with a troubled past, Charlie has loved Wren since the day he first saw her. But a girl like Wren would never fall for a guy like Charlie—at least not the sort of guy Charlie believes himself to be.

And yet certain things are written in the stars. And in the summer after high school, Wren and Charlie’s souls will collide. But souls are complicated, as are the bodies that house them...

Sexy, romantic, and oh-so-true to life, this is an unforgettable look at first love from one of young adult fiction’s greatest writers.

Lauren Myracle’s middle grade series was one of the first books I read, so I was super excited to read The Infinite Moment of Us. It has an amazing cover and an amazing summary. Although it wasn’t quite everything I hoped it would be, it still was a fun and engaging summer read.


The Infinite Moment of Us is told in the alternating povs of Wren and Charlie. I liked Wren at first, but as the book went on, she did some extremely selfish things. I feel like she just didn’t think about what others may be going through and really only thought about herself. At the same time, I thought Charlie was a lot more likable, but I did want him to confide in Wren more. I was definitely somewhat conflicted about what I thought about the characters.

The romance was sweet, but it still happened pretty fast. There is a physical part of the relationship, that there was a lot of detail about. I wish it had just skimmed over it more, rather than going super in depth. Also, I did feel that some of the things Charlie and Wren said to one another were really cheesy. They did make a cute couple, though.

The thing that really stood out to me with this book were the plot and the different relationships shown. The plot was awesome, and I thought that there was just the right amount of drama and realness infused it. I didn’t want to put this book down and the writing style was great! However, I didn’t like how abruptly things ended. The book ended right when something big was about to happen. 

The Infinite Moment of Us is a fun summer read, although there were some things I didn’t like about it. I’d give it 3 out of 5 flowers.

  1. I have heard only great things about this one and I was really curious about it. While it sounds cute and sweet I think things started too fast and ended that way and I don't like that. Great review :)

  3. I was really curious about this one. I loved the premise for this one, and it seems you had mixed feelings about this. I do like the sound of the characters and them as a couple, and despite their communication problems, I think I'd like them. I am really looking forward to the plot. Too bad about the fast ending! :( Although, I'm glad you still enjoyed this overall! Great review, Montana! :D
