Oh, guys. Oh, man. I think I’m in love. I KNOW I’m in love. This book made me feel all warm and fuzzy and I just wanted to reread it the second I put it down.
I love, love, LOVE books with strong friendships. I honestly like reading about friendships more than romantic relationships sometimes. Paige has three of the best friends in the world. The four of them are a unit, and even when they fight, they never hesitate to act if one of them needs help. They’re best friends in every sense of the word and I adored their joking, heart-wrenching, supportive moments.
And even though they’re complete as is, they also form real, close friendships with Ryan and Max over the course of the novel. I loved how these two boys fit in with the girls, how natural it was for them to join the group.
And then there’s the romance between Paige and Max. It’s so adorable and geeky and wonderful that I’m smiling just thinking about it. I just want to watch them fall in love over and over again.
The Final Verdict:
The Start of Me and You is a contemporary novel you just can’t miss. Seriously…go out and buy it NOW.
