TWO LIKE ME AND YOU is a laugh-out-loud, heartwarming story that fans of John Green will adore.

Edwin gets dumped and is having a hard time getting over his ex, but when he’s partnered in class with the new girl, Parker, they end up setting off on a wild adventure to France to reunite their elderly friend Garland with his long-lost love. I was immediately smitten with both Edwin and Parker, as their friendship blossomed in the sweetest of ways. Add a heartsick geriatric to the mix, and you end up with a buddy adventure you weren’t expecting.

In the interest of full disclosure, there were definitely hijinks and calamity throughout the book that were a bit hard to swallow, starting with a nursing home allowing two teens to take one of their patients on a trip across the Atlantic, but if you allow yourself to suspend reality for just a bit (and honestly, isn’t that exactly what reading’s all about?) you’ll find yourself cheering for this surprising trio all the way to the end.

The pace of the book is brisk, but there’s still plenty of time for each of the characters to grow within their own arcs and discover what their collective journey has to teach them. What I loved most about this book was the way Gibbs allowed each of his characters to grow in ways that were completely natural. All three learned as much about themselves as they did one another, leading to a most satisfying conclusion, full of so much hope.

Highly recommend to fans of heartwarming YA contemporary.
