that’s not the end of our story.
I met Sylvie Cranston when I was ten years old. Back then, she was the
annoying, weird girl who had moved next door and got me in trouble. But by
twelve, we became friends when I taught her how to bait a fishing line and she
showed me the value of a selfless act. At fourteen, she owned my heart.
At seventeen, she died.
Or so I was told. But I don’t believe it. Sylvie is part of my soul. I would
know if she was no more. I searched and prayed for her to come back to me.
Finally, I just waited for her.
Ten years later, she strolled into the English lit course I taught. Only this
girl claimed her name was Sophie Becker and she had no idea who I was. But I’m
not giving up. I’m going to get the girl I love back and protect her from the
danger that took her away all those years ago.
My name is Caleb Tanner and this is our story.
Julia’s 🎩🎩🎩🎩 hat review:
Girl By Any Other Name is a stunning story of innocent love, sweet passion, heartbreaking tragedy, and above all hope. I wasn’t sure what I was getting into, as I’ve never read MK Schiller, I just knew the blurb had me intrigued and I had to give it a try. I’m glad I did!
Cal and Sylvie met at the tender age of 10. One boy who thought she was weird and one girl who loved needling him. From that time on we fall into a beautiful love story that spans tragedy and time. I love Cal so much. Knowing he never gave up on his first love just adds more sweetness to him. He was more than determined, he was manic in his search for her. Sylvie has seen so much. She needed that touch of innocence Cal and his family gave her. Their story is tragically beautiful.
While I was blown away by the writing and the story, I will say the beginning was a bit hard to get through for me. Only because it was a bit slow, but once it picked up I couldn’t put it down! I’m looking forward to more from this author!
at the age of four from India. Since then, all she’s done is collect words.
After receiving the best gift ever from her parents—her very own library
card—she began reading everything she could get her greedy hands on. At
sixteen, a friend asked her to make up a story featuring the popular bad boy at
school. This wasn’t fan fiction…it was friend fiction. From that day on, she’s
known she wanted to be a writer. With the goal of making her readers both laugh
and cry, MK Schiller has penned more than a dozen books, each one filled with
misfit characters overcoming obstacles and finding true love.
