    Rev, Rev, Rev! Rev Fletcher caught my eye in

    as Declan’s best friend and pillar of strength and patience. The reticent and magnetic cutie hidden underneath an ever present hoodie gets to tell his story now. I knew Rev would rip my heart to shreds, but I had to know. I had to know if he was going to be alright. Rev’s huge heart, patience, scars, and pain are on full display here so hold on to your heart. This boy gets his hooks in and pulls!

    More Than We Can Tell is divided into two points of view—Rev Fletcher and Emma Blue. Rev is the hooded enigma hidden behind a wall of silence and don’t-mess-with-me attitude around school. He keeps everyone at arm’s length because of his scars and pain from the abuse he suffered at the hands of his father growing up. Scars he keeps hidden with long sleeves and hoods and silence. Rev does have support though from Declan, who has a strong and crucial role in this book, along with his adoptive parents—Geoff and Kristin. All three ties serve as the heart and soul of this book for me. Declan and Rev’s friendship is portrayed with such realistic force and humor. Rev’s humor is so dry and quick and wicked that it catches me off guard every time! I loved watching these two friends support each other with advice, strength, and just being there day or night to listen. You just know they’ll always be there for each other no matter what. But Rev’s world gets all kinds of turned around and shook up when his father reaches out to him. What does he want from Rev? Does Rev want his father in his life? The emotion this story stirs up is dazzling! Guilt and shame and love and loyalty battle in Rev’s head every day. But when his father pops up again, the confusion and anger he feels begin to threaten the peace and safe place that Rev has carved out with Declan, Geoff, and Kristin. Does Rev have the strength to face his father? To face his past? He can’t hide forever.

    My favorite part of this journey was Rev’s struggle with his emotions, confidence, and faith. The power of it will quietly slip into your heart and soul. Rev’s father physically and mentally abused him for years in the name of God and religion. He used faith to hurt and manipulate Rev. So it completely bowls me over to see Rev’s faith intact. He uses the same words and faith his father did, but in a pure, soft, loving way. One of my favorite parts of this book was a talk he had with Declan about a particular Bible passage. The power and force of someone’s words can all come down to interpretation sometimes or how one wields the power. Rev’s father was an ugly man, who used the power of religion in ugly ways. Rev views the world with such compassion and you will feel it in his words. God and religion are big ingredients in Rev’s story, but they are not overwhelming subjects here either. It was done just right. The father and son issue felt a bit rushed at the end, but overall I was very happy at how it was addressed and resolved. Rev's courage and strength will leave you in awe.

    Now you might notice by now that I haven’t mentioned Emma at all. Ms. Kemmerer has a tendency to make her female characters a bit weepy for my tastes, but Emma takes the teary eyed cake for sure! The potential for greatness was there with Emma! But…she just didn’t work for me. Fearless was used to describe Emma at one point in this story, which I have to say I disagree with whole heartedly. There is a fine line with the word fearless—there is being brave and risky and then there is being stupid and dangerous. Emma crossed over the line for me. She came across as immature and stubborn. Her issues are important and need to be talked about in YA, but her character just did not work for me here alongside Rev. And in my opinion, this story is not a romance! This journey has a different beat and feel to it than a romance. I didn’t hate the chemistry between Emma and Rev, but I didn’t love it either. I was just happy he was talking! It made my heart happy to see Rev let his guard down and try to let someone new in.

    Matthew, on the other hand, fit right into Rev’s story. The interactions between Matthew and Rev were complicated and layered with so much pain and fear. I loved the energy Ms. Kemmerer laced into their scenes. I don’t want to give away too much about Matthew, but just know he added a whole new level of emotion here that pinged off of Rev perfectly. I hope we get even more time with Matthew and Rev. And Declan! Together they will teach you the power and true definition of family, friendship, and communication. I don’t want to spoil, so please just read this book. Rev, Declan, and Matthew have such powerful stories and lessons to share. Just open up your heart and listen.

    Highly recommended.

    I updated the summary/description to make it clear that while this book exists in the same universe as

    , it's a standalone title. You do

    need to read

    to understand anything in this book. Letters was Declan and Juliet's story, and MTWCT is Rev and Emma's story. :-)

    update: I got an earc and started screaming hysterically and my sister was so shocked by my sudden hysterics, she wants to read LTTL to see what I was mumbling all about!!!!!! (this is a sister who hasn’t picked up a book in years, despite the fact that every year I buy her a book for her birthday in an attempt to get her to read lol)

    I seriously am in love with Rev and the fact that he's getting his own book is healing my broken soul. But I'm also 100% debating hibernation until this is released. Sounds sensible tbh.
