This life is new to Harper…
When you’re rejected from home, where do you go?
With a graze on his cheek, the answer was simple—to the hospital. But little did Harper realize that his trip to the Emergency Room would set in motion for his Christmas wishes to come true.
This was a sweet Christmas story about Harper who ends up needing to go to the emergency room after coming out to his dad. When he is in the emergency room he sees someone from his past who he had a crush on but never realized he was bi.
I honestly felt so bad for Harper after what his dad does and having everyone abandon him. So when he finds something special with someone he never thought he would have with I was so happy for him.
I loved the way this author wrote this story and these characters! You do get so much sweet with this story which made this a really good holiday story!
This story is about rekindling old friendships from youth and discovering first love. Both Harper and Cash are reeling from the rejection of their Fathers. Cash has been able to accept his sexuality because he has had the support of his Mother from a young age. Harper however, has to deal with a Father who blames him for the death of his Mother/wife. I’m a little confused with this part of the book. I’m not sure if the Father is so distraught with the loss of his wife that he blames Harper for not praying enough, or if the Father suspects early on that Harper is gay and blames Harper’s sexuality for her death. Cash’s mom Fay is able to step in and provide some support for Harper when he needs it.
