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.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
It’s hard to hid the fact that I’m a huge fan of Miranda Kenneally. Since reading Catching Jordan in 2012 I have been hooked on her books. There is something so refreshing and fun about her stories. So when Four Days of You and Me was announced I was beyond excited. I loved the idea of two teens going through 4 years of high school and having something happen roughly the same time every May. It seems liked a fun idea and Miranda nailed it. Four Days of You and Me was exactly what I needed and when I needed it.
Four Days of You and Me is the story of Lulu and Alex. These two high school students start as rivals in their freshman year of high school. When they go on the school field trip they find themselves stuck together completely changing the course of their relationship. Over the next 4 years Lulu and Alex (and a handful of friends) navigate what it means to be a teen in a relationship and all the feelings and heartbreak that come with it. With every year and every May field trip Alex and Lulu deal with being together and being broken up and what comes with the in-between. In the end they have to figure out what is worth it and what isn’t.
I loved Lulu and Alex so much. Even in their terrible teenage angst there was something special about them. They had a natural chemistry and genuinely had feelings for one another even if they didn’t know how to deal with them. At times they were both immature and completely overwhelmed by teenage tendencies, but I loved them even with their imperfections. Even when they weren’t together they were their for each other and that was what I really loved about them. In the end they were just perfect together.
In the end, Four Days of You and Me was exactly what I expected to come from the mind of Kenneally. It was funny and charming and a fantastic story about teenage love and heartbreak. And it was completely worth the wait. Definitely pick this one up. Can’t wait to see what she has in store for us next!
