Ciera Nelson wants what any other outcast wants, invisibility. If she can just make it through the rest of her year with minor incidents and a head held low she will be able to put the hell hole they call school in her rearview. Unfortunately, life has different plans for her. 
Topher Carlson is one of the biggest jocks on campus. All the guys want to be him, all the girls want to claim him. When secrets are uncovered, Topher’s life spins wildly out of control.
They are far from friends when the school year begins, but each will impact the other’s life in ways they never dreamed possible. Can Ciera help Topher realize that popularity and status mean nothing in the real world? Can Topher help Ciera learn the true meaning of living?
Sometimes you have to let go to really live. Sometimes being alive means taking risks.


Learning to Live is actually my first Kira Adams book, and to say my first, HELL! Definitely it wont be my last. When I was given a copy of this story, I was kinda "Oh the blurb". Might as well be prepared with Kleenex and a glass of wine or two. 
True to this, I needed more than wine or Kleenex for that matter. I wanted more. The story I thought started off easy became gut wrenching and will drain you emotionally. This is not your typical high school romance turned true love then TADA! Happily Ever After. No, it was far from it. This is where you experience an emotional topsy-turvy on two different people from two different worlds whom one taught the other to live while the other to let go. 

" In one year I felt every emotion imaginable: sadness, hopelessness, happiness, even guilt. In one year  I kissed a boy and fell in love. In one year I was able to realize the reason for living. It's love and it's you. Hold on to that. you did that for me. You were selfless."

Read the book. Savor every moment of it. Then finally, realize,

"Sometimes you have to let go to really live. Sometimes being alive means taking risks."
