Undeveloped by K Leigh

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Author K Leigh has such a wonderful way with words. Her stories continue to get better and better, and I am always on the lookout for her next book! Undeveloped was an absolutely beautifully written story with characters you fall in love with, wonderful revelations, and heartbreaking moments. It is well worth the read, and I hope everyone picks it up!

This is a dual-timeline story with Lia, our present-day teenager stumbling across her Aunt Natalie’s journals from her own youth. As Lia secretly reads more and more of Natalie’s entries, she becomes entranced by what looks like a love-lost in Natalie’s history.

The characters in this book were beautiful. Natalie was my favorite. I couldn’t stop reading her story. I fell in love with her attitude towards life. She had such a lovely free spirit, and I just wanted her part to never end. There is so much that happens in the book, and I don’t want to give away any spoilers, but it was a beautiful story.

The overall plot of Lia reading Natalie’s journals was mixed with some pretty impactful surprises as the story progressed. I laughed, I cried. . . I was emotionally invested in their stories. K Leigh has written a story that is sure to tug at your heartstrings, and take you on a wonderful journey!

Content Warning:

This story touches on infant loss which may be a trigger for some readers.

To Read or Not To Read:

I would recommend Undeveloped to readers that enjoy an emotional story of young love, family relationships, and life’s realities.

Lia Winegar and her aunt have always been thick as thieves, as close as a niece and aunt could be. Now, fresh out of high school, Lia plans to spend her last summer at home before going away to college.

But as one chapter of her life closes, another begins. When she stumbles upon one of her Aunt Natalie’s old journals-along with a faded photograph of a man she’s never seen before-Lia realizes her aunt’s life isn’t the open book she always thought it was.

Natalie isn’t the only one with a secret, though. Lia still hasn’t told her family just how far she plans to go; and while she unearths her aunt’s whirlwind story through a firsthand account, she discovers some truths of her own.

As the forgotten story of one summer unfolds, how much of each woman’s tale will remain undeveloped?
