Publisher's Summary

To survive where I live, you have two options. You can be a Normal - a cheerleader, jock, member of the debate team, or on the yearbook committee. You pretend everything is normal. Or you can be crew. You insult us? We hurt you. You hurt us? We really hurt you. And if you f--k with us, we will end you.

My name is Bren. I'm the only female in the Wolf Crew - the best, fiercest, and most dangerous crew there is - and we have a rule: There's no falling in love.

Well...too late.

This book contains mature young adult situations.

Full-length novel. First book in a series.

I tried to like it

I love reading Tijan books and this was my first audio I have listened from her. This book was boring and it was so repetitive of reminding us that the MC Bren is part of Crew. This whole; We are Crew, I am Crew, No one messes with us cuz we are Crew; business was getting old really quick. We do not need to be reminded of this every 15 seconds. I know it is a spin-off of Fallen Crest but it is basically the same story different day kind of thing. I tried to push through but I had to call it quits after 35 chapters.
On the bright side the narration was really good.

Loved it

Omg... I loved this story. Crew was fast paced, intriguing and riveting. I was hooked from the start. These characters were flawed and complex yet so well developed. I loved Bren, the only female in Crew. Her relationship amd budding romance with Cross was swoon worthy. Those two made a smile. The story was edgy and fierce. This novel was more than just a romance. It consumes you with everything that's ongoing. There was never a dull moment.
This novel was narrated by Therese Plummer. She did a fantastic job with the characters. Her voice was clear and understandable and she brought the story to life. I absolutely loved this novel. It was a phenomenal read amd I would highly recommend this to all lovers of Young Adult romance.

Soooooo disappointing. Worst yet from Tijan.

Soooooo disappointing. This was the absolute Worst yet from Tijan. And I'm a massive Tijan fan. The whole story was just way too over the top. Totally not believable at all and it just became annoying. Such a shame.

Hot Damn

So that ending man. Drake is kind of messed up in the brother sense but as far as the crews go I get it. But damn. Anyway. I really like Bren and I love Zee’s comic random relief throughout. Even Cross is cool but in a different brooding type of way.

What I didn’t know was that this was a spin off from Fallen Crest Series. Which I have a love hate relationship for. But I do really like this one and can’t wait to read the next one.

ok

Little slow developing story and the references to the crew and crew life were over used.

Not my favorite Tijan book

This isn't one of Tijan's best books. I actually found it to be very boring and I had to force myself to finish it. This book had no point, other to introduce us to the crew system and to introduce us to the Wolf Crew and set us up for more books in this series.

When the plot is character driven, you need a character that you can connect to and become invested in. I couldn't connect to Bren. Bren had locked up her emotions so tightly, she couldn't even address them in her internal monologues. Despite fact the whole book was from her point of view, you never get to really know her. For that reason, the romance between Cross and Been didn't work for me.

I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone except for Fallen Crest fans who are interested in glimpses of Heather and Channing. Those were the best parts of this book.

Story is generic "crew" violent crap.

The author tries to differentiate between "crew" and gang. It doesn't work when all your characters think about is beating people up.

Good book for teenagers

This book took me forever to listen to I'm guessing lack of real interest because I'm to old. it's written about high school kids and I'm sure my teenagers would love it.

This book nearly broke me. Literally.

At first, I had a love/hate relationship with it. I wasn’t sure how or if I would relate to Bren, having experienced her almost childish ways from Channing’s perspective. Then we meet her. I mean, we really meet her. We see what makes her tick, why she carries a knife, why she joined her crew, why her relationship with Channing is so fragile, why she relies on Cross, and why she became the Bren she is today. I cried for her when she couldn’t shed the tears herself. I wanted to fight with her, for the future she lost thanks to her father. And, I wanted to protect her, from herself and those intent on causing her harm.

This book really had it all. Yes, the crew life may not be everyone’s cup of tea, and yes, the whole book is set around Bren and her crew but it is so much more than just violence and scrapping. The story shows how four dysfunctional people became friends and why their loyalty to each other means more than life itself.

This book is poignant and heartbreaking in the way the story is portrayed. I was frustrated with the characters at times but that just made me more invested in the storyline. I really disagreed with Cross’s decision to put retribution before Bren towards the end of the story, and that point had me almost tearing my hair out but then I realised, these are young people shaped in a way that is different to most. They draw their strength from each other and could quite possibly fall apart without each other.

The boys are A-typical for their age group in the way they sleep around but that just makes them more loveable. That said, Cross and Bren’s connection was the complete opposite with them drawing comfort from each other’s presence way before their entanglement became romantic. The whole romance scene between them was extremely well written, thoughtful and tasteful, which I really appreciated.

I am sorry that some people didn’t connect with the story or the characters. For me, they are simply diamonds in the rough. Created from a force so great that makes them shine in their own special way.

This was an audiobook read for me and the narrator really did the story a huge justice in the way she portrayed the characters and brought the story to life. Maybe there’s a difference between the ebook and the audiobook, I don’t know. What I do know is that this story, although it started steadily, is one that will last with me for a very long time. I can’t wait to read/listen on in this series.

A full five star review - I loved it

You know the feeling. You start a book, and from that very first page you know. You just know that you’re gonna love it. Well that was me with ‘The Boy I Grew Up With’. I’ve not had that feeling for a while, but thank you Tijan. It’s back! I fecking loved Channing and Heather. I was expecting good, great even, what I got was even better, it blew all my preconceived notions out of the window. It literally blew me away! We got a glimpse of Heather and Channing in Fallen Crest, and then again in Crew, but nothing prepared me for all the feels, the emotions, the never wanting a book to finish feeling I haven’t had in what feels like forever. The book starts in the middle of their, oh so complicated relationship, whilst they are currently ‘not together’. The story takes us through their very tumultuous, yet emotional relationship from when they met in fifth grade to the present day. The synopsis says it all, so I won’t duplicate it in my review. I will tell you that this is one of my top reads this year, that the writing was perfect, and the story was full of passion, action, lots of drama, sexy times, and yes again, that word, emotion. I loved it. Also two different book covers, one for ebook, and one for paperback. I love them both. Oh, and that bonus scene! I almost missed it. Perfection. I couldn’t have asked for more in a romance novel. Excellent narration from Therese Plummer, she completely nailed Bren. A full five stars.
