*I received a digital copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.


My name is Holiday Sanchez. I carry a heavy burden.

But I’m not the only one.

There are others who know what it feels like to remember. Maybe they are the answer. Maybe we can help each other. Maybe I’ll finally get past it.

Maybe it just takes time—and a little bit of magic.


“But maybe you should allow yourself to question some“But maybe you should allow yourself to question some things. Life isn’t absolutes. You can question things and not question them.”

The synopsis doesn’t give much about the story so I honestly did not know what to expect when I started reading Me & Milo the Great, and it surprised me.

It is about the road to healing of a young lady, Holiday Sanchez, who has anxiety and experiences panic attacks due to a traumatic childhood experience. At present, she’s 24 years old and is trying to do things to heal. Then she meets Milo, a 22 year old magician, and she felt things that she never thought she would.

The story is narrated in flashbacks and in present times which made me understand better why Holiday turned out to be like that and what happened to her in the years following her traumatic experience. It is also fast-paced, you’ll be surprised that the next paragraph is a few days or even a week later, but I like it.

What I don’t like on this book is the insta-love, it was really instant. I think it would be better if there were more unexpected encounters between Holiday and Milo. But to be honest, I felt a bit elated with their insta-love.

Overall, I like the book and I recommend it to everyone who wants to understand what anxiety and having a traumatic experience feels like also those who are longing for healing.
