What You Left Behind is the story of how falling in love, losing someone and becoming a teenage father will change your life forever. Ryden is a superstar soccer player when his love, Meg gets pregnant but the catch is, she is dying from cancer. When Meg dies giving birth to their daughter, Hope, Ryden falls apart trying to manage how to be a soccer player, father, student until one day at work he meets Joni, who will show him that it's ok to love again.
Meg left Ryden three journals to find but soon regrets finding the second one right before a game that will make or break him. After a night of falling apart and secrets out in the open, Ryden is finally given the third journal by someone he lest expected to have it. After realizing that he needs to move forward and give love a second change, everything falls together like it should!
I really liked this book and it just draws you in just wanting to know what happens next. I do think this book would be good for teenagers to read just for the fact that it shows what getting pregnant can do to someone at a young age. It would be kinda cool to see a sequel on how everyone is in ten years or so or maybe even have Hope as a main character either way, I'm definitely gonna be reading more Jessica Verdi's books in the future!
Thank You to Jessica Verdi for writing a book that has you captivated from the first page to the very last word!!
