    Such a great story! Lily and Abelard are such endearing characters. I am probably what you would call neurotypical, but I felt that I had a fascinating glimpse into what it must be like to live with severe ADHD and a tiny glimpse into the world of Asperger?s syndrome in our heroine a...

    I was lucky enough to read an ARC of this amazing story and I loved it. Lily is so raw and real and her struggles to make sense of her ADHD and her family and her love for Abelard made this book completely engrossing. ...

    This book was everything. I finished it in a day and a half because I couldn't stop reading. The characters are all fully formed and so real and relatable. The insights into ADHD were fantastic. Such a beautiful book. ...

    I don't know about the depiction of autism, and this is really not a book for people who hate instalove, but it was definitely interesting to read a YA with a female main character who has ADHD. That was my favorite aspect for sure. For me, it wasn't as successful with the romance or t...

    I never connected with Lily as a character and, consequently, didn't care all that much about her story. I liked Abelard and almost think I would have preferred the book told from his POV. ...

    I feel like I am being pulled in multiple directions. I adored the cuteness of this book. There was so much to like...and dislike.... All quotes are not final until actual publication. You are a fractured snowflake, a pattern repeated in infinite detail in a world full of salt cr...

    Lily Michaels-Ryan thinks of herself as She-Hulk. She's constantly breaking things, acting on impulses, and generally feeling more monster than human, as her ADHD makes her feel like her brain is broken. And being a monster is lonely. But then she starts dating Abelard, who not only...

    4.5 stars I loved this synopsis and was pretty eager to get into this story. Love love loved Lily and Abelard. I loved that they find each other and start the sweetest relationship. I loved being inside Lily?s head, but would have loved to get inside Abelard?s, even for just...

    Thank you, HMH Teen, for giving me an eARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. Love is about being broken beyond repair in the eyes of the world and finding someone who thinks you're just fine. I'm glad that I've found another meaningful contemporary novel that deals w...

    This was a one-sit read for me! Once I started, I couldn't stop. Come distractions and emotional upheavals, I couldn't put it down. Except for the occasions where the tenuous nature of first loves, what it means to have control over your life, and the question of what is broken and wha...

    Ohhh I have complicated feelings about this. On one side: I thought it's like the best ADHD (#ownvoices too!) rep I've read in a long time...plus it was a girl and girls with disabilities are totally underdone!! But on the other side: I felt it contradicted itself in some themes and ul...

    The description on Edelweiss originally included information stating that Lily had ADHD and Abelard had Aspergers. I immediately thought I have to read this book. I want to see inside the minds of these characters. Creedle didn't disappoint in her writing. Lily is a fully formed charac...

    What to say? All I can say is that I read this book over the course of two days, couldn't put it down and loved every word, every character and every moment that I spent with Lily and Abelard. Whew. I'm exhausted from all the emotions. ...

    4 ?Keep the #ownvoices books coming? Stars This book was so, so good. Cute. Heartbreaking, at times. Romantic. And above all, authentic. I?m not the best judge of ADHD or Asperger?s rep, but this sure felt like one of the most authentic representations of neurodiverge...

    I got to read this book as an ARC, and I must say it was wonderful! Lily is unique, but oh so familiar. There were many times where she would say or think something, and it was the same thing I had heard from my family members who are dyslexic or have ADHD. I felt like I was reading th...

    Overall, I enjoyed this book. It was a sweet love story and had good representation of people who aren't necessarily neurotypical. The Love Letters of Abelard and Lily by Laura Creedle follows the story of Lily Michaels-Ryan, a sixteen-year-old girl who suffers from ADHD and dysl...

    I loved so many things about this book, but mostly I loved Lily. Obviously, the hopeless romantic in me adored that Lily and Abelard found each other. These two people, who were considered "different" connected through the words of two long ago lovers, and from there, love flourished. ...

    En weer heeft Gottmer een succesnummer gekozen om uit te geven. Ze geven niet superveel YA uit, maar wat ze uitgeven vind ik over het algemeen echt supergoed. ZO ook dit boek. Ik leefde heel erg met het hoofdpersonage mee. Ze hebben ook iets bijzonders gedaan met hoe de wereld voor ...

    This was a very interesting, thought provoking, and emotional read. There was much more depth than I expected and I really liked that because it made the story seem more raw and real. In all elements with this novel it seemed similar to a John Green novel. That isn't an insult AT A...

    I finished an ARC of this in one sitting. Lily and Abelard's story is sweet and unique and made me smile and, okay, made me cry a bit too. Being in Lily's POV pulls you into her challenges and frustrations and you can't help but root for her from chapter 1. Loved it! ...
