  • Five teens meet as strangers. Five different personalities. Five lives taking you to a journey of their four years in high school.I don't really mind books with multiple perspectives. It's just challenging to keep up with their stories because I can't connect with them. The premise is great and easy to read but nothing much happens to keep me interested. As for the characters, I do appreciate the diversity. Out of the five teenagers, Jake -- the boy who has a crush on his best friend, Ted and Zo [...]


  • Contemporary YA from the multiple perspectives of five teenagers-Jake, Gregor, Zoe, Mia, and Whitney as they navigate their way through the high school years. The group tackle belonging, sexual awakening, divorce, addiction, and the death of a parent. Quite simply, it's every teen show on the CW wrapped up in a book. I am giving this a 3 star because I neither hated it or loved it. I am just picking the neutral rating because I am not the target audience. However, I had two students who took thi [...]



  • I really liked this! This tied together the lives of five freshman's who enter their four years of high school. Five individuals whose lives inevitably get intertwined in both present and past. It was a little hard to follow because it came in the form of five voices and got pretty vague at times. But in the end it was a great read.



  • 3.5 rounding up!I was definitely excited to read this one and I wasn’t exactly disappointed, I just feel like maybe something was missing for me… OR it could be that I am just so far removed from High School that I just couldn’t connect as much as I normally like. Infinite In Between explores the lives of five teens who officially meet on the first day of high school, they don’t exactly become friends, but over the four years of school, their lives twist and turn and weave in and out of [...]


  • This book is the perfect example of a good premise that turns out to be really badly executed. So 5 teenagers meet on their freshman orientation day and pledge to meet again right after graduation. Supposedly, we should have been about to read all about their high school journeybut it's a massive undertaking and all get to see are bits and pieces of each of them, glimpses of what they do but with no real characterization. For the first hundred pages it was almost impossible to tell them apart. T [...]


  • I actually read 378 pages of this waiting for something to happen or some attachment to form, but it just didn't, and I had to put it down to travel somewhere and when I picked it back up, it was a couple of weeks later, I didn't remember who anyone was, and I didn't care. It's an ambitious thing to write a book with 5 POVs, and not an easy one, and this didn't do any of the things right for me that a book has to do to pull it off. I didn't care enough, I didn't think the characters had equal we [...]


  • I don't really know about this book. I was so into the concept. I LOVED the prologue, it held so much intrigue and I was so excited. But throughout the book, I couldn't bring myself to care for any of the characters and the book failed to provoke any sort of emotional reaction in me. On the other hand, I was glued to it and couldn't stop reading. It was a bit of a weird reading experience.


  • Infinite in Between follows five students throughout their high school experience. The group of students all met while at student orientation, while in their group they decided to write letters to their future selves and after graduation the group would meet back up and read the letters together.Honestly for myself when there are so many point of views, I usually get lost with the characters until about a quarter of the way through, sometimes more depending on the story. By that time the charact [...]


  • The narration put me to sleep and I could not relate to any of the characters. Yeah it was like The Breakfast Club but I just --- it was booooooring.


  • This story follows five different teenagers through their four years of high school. They all meet on the day before their freshman year starts because they are all in the same group at orientation day. They decide to write letters to their future selves and hide them in school. On graduation day they would come back and read those letters. And that's when the journey startsOh my, this was such a gorgeous book! I loved every single word of it. All of the five were great, they were so different i [...]


  • I was not as impressed by this story as I hoped I would be. I never connected to the characters because their POV chapters felt choppy, rushed, and under developed. :(


  • Tsk tsk tsk.As the rating says (two stars) it was just okay. Honestly, this was probably the worst book I've ever read. However, I DID finish it, but it felt forced. I didn't touch it for a couple of days and was itching to move on to a different book, but I made myself finish it as I was almost done. I'd say: skip it. It didn't really do anything for me. I would've been okay having never picked it up in the first place.Positives: 1) Short chapters. I. Love. Short. Chapters. 2) Sometimes (and on [...]


  • THIS BOOK IS SO GOOD!!! I've been wanting to be more social in high school and make more friends and go out and stuff like the kids in most books like this do but I feel as though since I'm already half way through sophomore year that I haven't had the full high-school experience and I'm not sure when I will. I can relate to the character Mia where she finds it hard to speak up and do things like going to social events. But if I really am anything like her (or any other character since I relate [...]


  • solid three stars!! I was really looking forward to this one, because I thought the premise sounded really amazing! I ended up flying through this, and I really enjoyed it! I thought the characters were relatable and the idea ended up working out really well. The one complaint I had, and the reason that this is only three stars, is that I felt like the chapters were too short. There are five POVS in this novel, and every time I would feel oriented to a new person, I felt like the chapter would c [...]


  • This book made me think that I was about a year behind everyone else in high school. Like a lot of the characters I went through some major life events (Dad passing away at the end of my junior year) and feeling alone. The kids in this book seemed to be getting things together their senior year, but for me it was college where I had the most growth. This book also reminded me that you never know what is going on in others peoples lives. I liked how the book ends with the kids being open to conne [...]


  • Being a freshman in high school, this book really makes me think. Who have I started high school with? Who will I end high school with? What is important to me now? What will be important to me then? So many things could happen.I really loved this book because I can relate to the characters and I see some of this stuff in my everyday life. I like having the different characters and months go by very fast, never spending too much time on one thing.


  • A wonderful reminder of the ups and downs of high school. A note though: I think readers should go into this with the undestanding that there's no major character arcs and/or eureka! moments for any of them. It's more just a gradual understanding/evolution of people becoming who they're meant to be.


  • I literally have no words. This ultimately is one of my favorite contemporary YA novels I have ever read. It was that good. I'll write a proper, full review later, but right now I can't think straight and my heart is racing and aching at the same time from the AWESOMENESS of this book. I recommend this book to everyone.


  • Review courtesy of Dark Faerie TalesQuick & Dirty: A unique coming of age novel that I connected with.Opening Sentence: In the beginning the five of them made a promise.The Review:The Infinite In Between follow five characters: Zoe, Jake, Gregor, Mia, and Whitney. All live drastically different lives. Zoe is daughter of an alcoholic movie star. She doesn’t know her father and her mother’s PR problem is beginning to affect her. Jake is coming to terms with the fact that he’s gay and is [...]


  • Earlier this week I picked up The One Thing, a novel I had completely forgotten why I even owned, and fell in love. I decided to pick up another couple books I wasn’t sure why I had to see if I would have the same sort of experience.With Infinite in Between this was not the case. It’s an oddly large third person contemporary novel, and while it was an easy read I had a lot of issues with it. 2 ½ starsThe book follows a group of five high schoolers who are paired together for freshman orient [...]


  • This comes pretty darn close to a perfect YA novel, in my opinion. It's a hefty 462 pages long and I very nearly read it in one sitting—I might have if I'd started it before 10 PM, I might have. As it was I read until I fell asleep, then woke up and immediately picked it back up again to finish.The book attempts to present the four years of high school as a saga unto itself. It looks at five students and their lives from orientation to graduation. The students are assigned to the same orientat [...]


  • I like the idea of a novel that spans all four years of high school and the changing that takes place. Due to the number of characters who have their stories told and the fact that it covers 4 years you don't get a lot of depth into any particular character/story. It takes on a lot of different issues with these characters and mostly just skims the surface. As such, it will undoubtedly disappoint those who want a more in depth look into the characters or issues. I do think that teens reading thi [...]


  • Wasn’t a huge fan of this one. It was hard to even care about any of the characters because you got so little about them. The 5 also barely interact. The way the book is written is in small random chunks for each person. I didn’t like Mia at all. Just wasn’t the book for me.


  • This was a fun read, though nothing particularly profound or life-changing. Honestly, that's okay with me; not every book I read has to reduce me to a puddle of tears like The Fault In Our Stars. Sometimes it's nice to read a story that just feels honest and real, as opposed to thrilling me with fantasy romances and high adventure.The novel follows the high school experiences of five teenagers as they grapple with love, sexuality, tragedy, and a whole host of other problems. I was surprised to s [...]


  • *cringes*This book was both good and bad. It was good because there just seemed to be so much youth and energy in it. It definitely moved at an energizing pace where I could start and finish it in less than 24 hours. The problem with things moving so fast is that we weren't able to collect that much information in the characters. I don't really feel as if I know these characters all that well. While I do think the point of view from these four teenagers were all very fun to read, I feel like I m [...]


  • I got this book for free in exchange for an honest review.This is my first Mackler novel. It's easy to make parallels between Infinite in Between and the Breakfast Club, but being a fan of the 80's movie isn't a requirement for liking this Novel.Mackler does an amazing job introducing a varied and diverse set of students and showing their struggles and strengths throughout high school. This is not a book you want to pick up if you're looking for adventure and a Big Suspenseful Climax. There are [...]


  • *4.5 Stars*Mackler deftly weaves a multi-perspective novel of five high school students and the events that make them who they are. Diverse, detailed, and brutally honest, Mackler's characters feel more relatable than almost any other fictional characters I've ever read. Her use of sexual lingo, profanity, and cultural references present as genuine circumstances that solidify the authenticity of the young adults she follows. Touching on love, loss, sex, toxic friendships, and difficult families, [...]


  • I DNFed it around 2/3 of the way through. I like the concept and it was pleasant to read, but I just stopped caring enough to finish it. It definitely wasn't bad, though! Probably a 3.5 star book, but I rounded down for the rating.
