Four Days of You and Me
Every May 7th, 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 break-ups, 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 Six Flags; 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 perfect for those looking for books for young adults and character-driven romances!
The book primarily occurs during the class trips, but also includes flashbacks from the prior year. There are elements of enemies-to-dating and second chance romance that really make this a book that tugs at all the heartstrings. As the book covers so much time, I felt like we really delve into their relationship and the way that it evolves. I also loved seeing how they both followed their passions and ultimately supported each other.
This book gave me a lot of feels. It was so easy to empathize with Lulu and her emotions and thoughts become so real throughout the book. The characters are so three-dimensional, and I loved seeing them grow. I would recommend this to older YA readers with a note of some consensual sexual content and swearing.
This is such a compelling and engrossing YA contemporary romance. It is impossible to put down, so definitely save a whole afternoon to devour this fantastic read.
