After I read the book and look back at the book cover, I noticed that the book cover is very simple and straight to the point.

That makes book appealing to readers. The author called this story as short but in reality, it is not short, it has 25 chapters and another one for the epilogue. I can say that Laylaa Khan or known as “xThePineappleGirlx” as her pen name in wattpad is a good writer, her writings are very timely and it is non-fiction.

I usually like stories that describes the characters in details.

For example, in Anne’s Point of View (POV), Hunter is wearing this certain kind of clothes. Describing characters in details for me helps reader use their imagination on the setting of a part of a story. I’m really picturing scenery in America when I was reading the story. Because of gangs and Hunter being a party goer. This is one of the techniques used by Khan, reading this story takes you to another place with the use of your imagination.

I really recommend every people especially the millennials to read this story although it is a little SPG.

But it is cool. The story line is really good and it is so exciting reading every chapters of it.

When I saw the title of the story “It started with a converse” I didn’t think that it would be that interesting because the title is not that catchy but as I read the story once again I proved to myself that don’t judge the story by its title. Also, the story is relatable because I am also a teenager. This is definitely deserved its highest rank #1 in short story. Laylaa Khan also known as xThePineappleGrilx, the author of the story is a very talented person because at the age of 18 she already published many wattpad stories.

I can say that this story can definitely attract the reader’s attention and interest.

So, when you have extra time feel free to read this story because you’ll not regret it.

Overall Rating

Both of us would like to give the story a rating of 4.8 out of 5 because of the following reason it is in line in short stories but there were 26 chapters all in all and the writer said it herself that her stories supposedly short. Also, and we were expecting a creative ending. Those were the flaws we seen when we read the book. If we were to create another ending of the story it would probably like this. The both of them, Anne and Hunter changed. Hunter promised that he will only focus on Anne and stop being a womanizer. Anne promised that she will only focus on Hunter and stop flirty.
