Callum & Harper By Fisher Amelie Review


"Life sucks for orphans Callum Tate and Harper Bailey.

Kicked out of their foster homes because they suffer the 'eighteen disease' with nothing but a hundred dollar check from the government and a pat on the back, they're forced to rely on a system that failed them miserably.

So they sit. They sit inside Social Services, waiting for their social workers to call their names and offer them the miracle they know will never come but they sit anyway because they have nowhere else to go, no other options on their very literal and figurative empty plates.

But as they sit, they notice the other. Although captivated, they each come to the conclusion that life is complicated enough without throwing in a boiling tension that can't ever be acted upon because they're both too busy thinking about where their next meal will come from but when their names are called and both are placed on a year long waiting list for permanent housing, suddenly relying on each other seems like a very viable plan B.

And, oh, how lovely Plan B's can be.

Well, except for the psycho from Harper's past that haunts her and, oh, yeah, there's the little issue that neither of them knows they're in love with the other.

Needless to say, Callum & Harper's life just got a bit more complicated.

“One day, you and I are gonna’ wake up and be alright. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow but one day. One day. I promise you.” - Callum Tate"

Words are not enough for me to describe how this story left me feeling in the end. I didnt expect to love this story as much as I do now. The way Harper needs Callum, and the way Callum NEEDS her to need him is so sweet… I felt my heart break a little with EACH PAGE. But, in that “Oh my GOD, I’m dying because this is so sweet…” way. This LOVE right here is what life is about. It's about taking leap of faith and being patient. It's about standing by one another in a loyal friendship, never letting the other fall down. And when they do, you take turns holding each other up. THAT is LOVE! You will fall in love Callum & Harper from the VERY first PAGE. I kow I did. You just know they are going to make it in the end. Through every single heartache, disappointment, and horrific things that happens to them- they have each other. Fisher Amelie MAKES you believe in them, they WILL make it because they just HAVE TO. Callum & Harper is TRUE love story. This is the kind of love truly worth waiting for! :)
