Review "Ten Below Zero by Whitney Barbetti"

“In here,” he said, pushing on the skin above my heart, “you're ten below zero. And you’re closer to death than I am.”

My name is Parker. My body is marked with scars from an attack I don’t remember. I don’t want to remember. I choose to live my life by observation, not through experience. While people are laughing and kissing and connecting, I’m in the corner. Watching them live. I’m indifferent to everything, everyone. The only emotion I feel with any kind of depth is annoyance, and I feel it often.

A text message sent to the wrong number proves to be my undoing.

His name is Everett, but I call him rude. He’s pushy, he’s arrogant, he crowds my personal space, and worst of all: he makes me feel.

He chooses to wear all black, all the time, as if he’s waiting to attend a funeral. Probably because he is.

Everett is dying. And he’s spending his final days living, truly living. In doing so, he’s forcing me to feel, to heal. To come face to face with the demons I suppressed in my memory.

He hurts me, he fulfills me, he completes me. And still, he's dying.

As four brits book fast is approaching faster I'm trying to read as many books as I can. Ten Below Zero is one of them. Wow what a book. It really tugs at you're hartstrings. This books is the epitome of teaching you to life your live to the fullest, we only get one live and we better make the most of it. 

What is this book about
This book is about 21 year old parker. After she was attacked three years ago that left her with some pretty nasty scars she wasn't the same anymore. she goes through live without feeling, without caring, without living. When she gets a text ment for another person from Everett she decide to do something she normally wouldn't do, and does to meet him. She immediately felt a bit unnerved by him. He seemed to read her well and makes her feel things she doesn't want to feel. Everret isn't you're typical guy. No he surely doesn't sugarcoat things. He is painfully rude and prefers people to just tell the truth. He is dead send on getting Parker to live her live again. After all she still has a live to live while Everret is dying.

What did I love about this book
Just book really got to me. It really got me thinking about live and living it to the fullest. It made me question if I myself was truly living. So yeah I'm not kidding when I say it got to me. 
I just loved these to characters together. Yeah they where frustrating sometimes but still. They were both so broken  in different ways. It was such a great read and I just wanted to see them find happiness and live their lives together. I know live doesn't work that way sometimes but they really deserve it. I just... I just don't know what else to say. Just go read to book and see for yourself.
