purplejoys wrote:The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E. Smith
After reading several YA novels with whiny, entitled, childish characters, I was happy to get to know Lucy and Owen who are both smart,responsible, and kind of old-school with their choice of communication tool. Lucy’s rich but she’s not braggy; she’s actually simple and keeps to herself — an introvert like me. And Lucy and I share the same favorite city (Paris, although I haven’t been there) and same favorite spot in Paris (Point Zero in Notre Dame). Owen’s poor and broken (because of his mother’s death) but he’s resourceful, smart, and a very good son.
This book is about young love and travels, and the viability of long-distance relationships. It's a gem, something that doesn't just entertain but also touches your heart and mind.
