Can You Start the Series in the Middle: You can. The author always gives a little context at the beginning so you can start with any installment. However, it has a great back-story, so I would recommend stating this series at book one.
This is such a fun series. It is one I always look forward to. Jules is a hard working, fun loving main character, but comes with a history and scars that make her very relatable. Ellie Alexander does a wonderful job of painting imagery with her words that have you glued to the pages. I always have to pace myself with these books because I read them so fast, but want to savor the experience at the same time!
It would be so easy for this series to follow the standard but it stands out mostly because the characters and their relationships are unique.
