    One thought on “What Remains”

    1. Source I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read to review basis Thanks to Flux and NetGalley Everything changes, I whisper into her hair which smells a little like paint thinner It won t always be this hard This was an interesting YA contemporary story about a boy who loses his best friend.I felt quite sorry for Cal in this story it was easy to see why he felt guilty over Lizzie s death, even if it wasn t really his fault, and to then find out what he found out was even harder f [...]

    2. Bulgarian review bookishipster.wordpress 2At first when i started this book i thought it would be really sad, but i m glad i was wrong Yes, What Remains has its sad moments and thoughts but it gave me some happy feelings too I overall really enjoyed reading it, it was different in its own way and i m glad i got a chance to read it.

    3. A love story of three friends I wrote this book for all those who know their friends will always be with them, no matter what Follow your heart.

    4. Source Flux via Netgalley free of charge for honest review I wanted to read this one because I liked the sound of their friendship, and the story of loss of one of his best friends and the sport that was such a huge part of his life are ripped from him The promise of soul searching and figuring out his identity without what he had based so much of himself on I did like that it started in a place before his loss, and I got to see the depth of his friendship with Lizzie and Spencer Lizzie had a ro [...]

    5. It s official Helene Dunbar s books have become my go to reads if I ever want to read something extraordinarily touching, heart breaking and inspiring Just like with the first book I read of her, These Gentle Wounds, What Remains came into my life to beautifully ruin my happy state of mind It s been several days since I finished this book and I still cannot recover from it.There s no point of me explaining the book s plot since the summary does a good job of it, but I will tell you that even tho [...]

    6. eARC kindly provided by Flux via NetGalley This is a pretty spoilery one An emotional, and sometimes heartbreaking, journey told all in one boy s POV A guy who has two best friends but is ripped away from one of them forever A boy who has to come to terms, not just with Lizzie s death, but with the beat of her heart in his chest I found his journey to be full of growth and acceptance But I have to say, I was a wee bit disappointed with the romance I would have liked it if the author had explored [...]

    7. A very beautifully written story that can teach you how to love, to let go of things, be grateful for what you have and live life to the fullest Loved every single bit of this book

    8. The book What Remains is a story that is exciting, sad, and heartbreaking The main character, Calvin or Cal Ryan, is a junior in high school He has a promising career in baseball, and he could do anything he dreams of doing, even though his mom says sports are a hobby and not a good career The book mainly follows Cal, but his two best friends, Lizzie and Spencer are also very important characters to the story Spencer and Cal have spent their whole life taking care of Lizzie to make sure she s al [...]

    9. Reviewed on my blog readingawaythedaysI really enjoyed What Remains I didn t really know what I was expecting but the journey the characters went on was fantastic and I wanted of their story.The StoryI haven t read a story about a heart transplant before and the effects it has on the recipient But I found the concept really interesting and it really felt like the author has researched it really well But this story is also about true friendship and Grief I loved the friendship between, Lizzie, S [...]

    10. Thank you to NetGalley and Flux books for the advanced electronic copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.Cal, Spencer, and Lizzie have always been friends The three juniors have their own interests baseball, drama, and art but look out for and support one another Lizzie s home life isn t that great, with an apathetic mom and her creeper boyfriends, so Cal and Spencer are always available for late night rescues After taking their SATs, the trio set out on a weekend getaway with Cal at [...]

    11. Helene Dunbar is so good at writing different relationships In her previous novel, These Gentle Wounds , she was terrific at sibling relationships, and in this one she has a lovely portrayal of friendship between two boys and a girl, and also a sweet, quiet romance developing.I thought the story was slow moving to start with I like this if it pays off in the end , and the story truly grew on me The latter half of it flew by, in a good way, convincing me that this book is a gem The characters are [...]

    12. Again pleasantly surprised I wasn t going to pick this one up because I m not big on baseball books, but I couldn t stop thinking of how interesting the heart transplant thing could be I loved this one, especially the tension between Cal and Spencer after Lizzie s death The friendship between Cal, Spencer, and Lizzie was unique and awesome The ending tied up well and the closure was perfect after all of the emotions the reader experiences throughout the story.Thanks NetGalley for the opportunity [...]

    13. Lovely, poetic writing tell a heart wrenching story of loss and renewal I love that the author took her time exploring all of the depths of the characters and the complexity of their feelings around a very complex situation and for each other This was one of those books where I really had no idea where it was going to go next but felt like I was in very capable hands the whole time as the story unfolded.

    14. I loved this book The character I can relate the most to is Lizzie I had an alcoholic in my life growing up I am glad that Spencer and Cal were there for Lizzie to help her when she needed it Cal has been through loss in his life I am glad that Cal is talking to Ally I think she will be good for him This book is well written This book makes you wonder what will happen next Give this book a try I know I m glad I did.

    15. As usual, Helene Dunbar s storytelling leaves me breathless This surprisingly twisty tale is achingly sad, but it lifted me up first here, then again, before finally pulling me out of the dark completely Believable characters, humor, and a heart laid bare puts What Remains with my top picks for contemporary YA fiction.

    16. Helene Dunbar has written a beautiful and poignant love story with a literally heart wrenching twist Her deft touch graces every page Her characters are engaging and vibrant The story is an emotional roller coaster, and it made me cry It s a rich and captivating novel.

    17. But I guess what remains after someone you love dies aren t the things you can reach out and touch When you love someone, that love changes you for better or worse So in a way, maybe they re never truly gone Wow, it was only towards the end of this story that Dunbar s prose really swept me away I do truly enjoy her writing, but I can t say this one was quite as good as her first book, These Gentle Wounds, which was incredible I think my favourite thing about this book was being inside of Cal s h [...]

    18. Istyria book blog B s world of enchanted booksYou know that feeling when a book didn t blow your mind but you loved it nonetheless That s what I have now What Remains didn t blow my mind, it was nothing really new or original, but I still loved it quite a bit.What Remains is about Cal For as long as he remembers he s been friends with Spencer and Lizzie He figures that won t change anytime soon Until one day they get in a car accident Suddenly Cal s life is changed forever He has a new heart and [...]

    19. To say that this book didn t go quite the way I expected it would be an understatement but the journey that we are taken on with Lizzie, Spencer, Cal, and Ally is truly beautiful.This is a, I want to call it heart breaking and heart warming but you will see why those words sound a bit hollow when you read the book, I think a better way to say it is to say it is a soul warming and at times emotionally crushing book Cal is an all American teen with dreams of baseball stardom, a crush on a beautifu [...]
