The foundation of Hollywood rom-coms formula is the meet-cute. It’s when the female protagonist and the male protagonist meet by accident, a so- called chance encounter. Anya didn’t believe in meet-cute. It never happened in real life, she said. That is until she met Ale on a fl ight from Jakarta to Sydney, as they were seated next to each other, and one silly incident led to seven hours of conversation between them. Seven hours of laughters and smiles, seven hours that soon changed them from strangers to lovers.

Now, five years have passed. Those laughters and smiles have become nothing but bitter pieces of memories as Anya and Ale faced a massive tragedy in their life, a devastating fate that leaves them questioning every decision that they took and wondering whether they have in fact turned from lovers to strangers.

Told through the perspectives of both Ale and Anya, every chapteris arranged like pieces of puzzle that invites the readers to experience every single emotion that they’re feeling, to love and to hate, and sometimes both at the same time.

The first few chapters, Ika Natassa has succeedingly made me want to read more and more.
