Imagine every important part of your life took place on the same day over a long period of time. Can’t imagine it right? It’s basically impossible, but Whitney G. made it possible in her standalone novel “On a Tuesday.”
Aside from reminding me of a famous song, this book was a little different than most. Yes, it includes the HOT quarterback who is super cocky (with reason) and the virgin tutor who is gorgeous but humble. When I begin reading the book, I guessed that the plot line was going to follow most others. But it didn’t. Grayson & Charlotte’s story is different. They are both honor students and missed crucial classes necessary for graduation. The solution, she tutors a student to make up the credits, and he decides to take a bunch of English classes which he pushed to the absolute last minute because he didn’t want to take it. He doesn’t really need a tutor but is giving one to help him out in whatever way the tutor can, and to keep him accountable. He meets Charlotte and makes it his mission to make her fall for him. A difficult mission indeed, because Charlotte doesn’t want anything to do with the player, cocky, manwhore that she believes Grayson to be. And although Grayson wasn’t that any longer, she didn’t want to be in his spotlight.
This story goes back and forth between the present and the past. It builds the relationship for you step by step in the past, and then brings you to a future where you start to wonder what happened. The pace is amazing, the story is one that I can’t quite capture into words without giving too much away. All you need to know is that there is a twist. There are a lot of surprises, and you will find yourself as hurt and confused as the characters. You will cheer for them, you will feel hurt for them, you might even shed a tear, but it will all be worth it. Charlotte & Grayson will show you that sometimes happily ever afters take time and that nothing is what it seems.
