I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
A new swoon-worthy romance following a couple's love story on the same date over four years.
Every May 7, the students at Coffee County High School take a class trip. And every year, Lulu’s relationship with Alex Rouvelis gets a little more complicated. Freshman year, they went from sworn enemies to more than friends after a close encounter in an escape room. It’s been hard for Lulu to quit Alex ever since.
Through breakups, make ups, and dating other people, each year’s class trip brings the pair back together and forces them to confront their undeniable connection. From the science museum to an amusement park, from New York City to London, Lulu learns one thing is for sure: love is the biggest trip of all.
Four Days of You and Me is a fast-paced, fun, and nostalgic read. It’s the first book by Miranda Kenneally that I’ve read and after I finished it I immediately picked up another of her books.
I loved the way the story is told, with the focus on the same day, the same event, for each of the four years of high-school. We can really see the progression of the two main characters, Lulu and Alex, and how their enemies to something more evolves. As they navigate their would-be relationship, they experience many high and lows, falling in love, longing for each other, but not always being together. Both are very likable characters, but high school and hormones get in the way sometimes, and decision-making skills aren’t always well developed.
Kenneally does a wonderful job showing us who Lulu and Alex are. There is, of course, a great cast of secondary characters that drive the story along; friends and foes alike. I found myself reminiscing on my own exploits during “fair days”, and in general, thinking about a simpler time. This is a great read to share with the teenagers in your life with no worries about the content (it’s a clean read). If you are an adult who likes a good YA, I heartily recommend this! 4 Stars
