The Geography of You and Me - Jennifer E Smith (Review)

Title : The Geography of You and Me
Author : Jennifer E Smith
Publisher : Headline
Pub Date : 15.4.14 
Format : Paperback 
Pages : 352

Synopsis :
Owen lives in the basement. Lucy lives on the 24th floor. But when the power goes out in the midst of a New York heatwave, they find themselves together for the first time: stuck in a lift between the 10th and 11th floors. As they await help, they start talking...
The brief time they spend together leaves a mark. And as their lives take them to Edinburgh and San Francisco, to Prague and to Portland they can't shake the memory of the time they shared. Postcards cross the globe when they themselves can't, as Owen and Lucy experience the joy - and pain - of first love.
And as they make their separate journeys in search of home, they discover that sometimes it is a person rather than a place that anchors you most in the world.

I received this book a while ago from Headline thanks to Bookbrigdr so thank you very much for that, and it had took me a very long time to review it so here it is, my review for Jennifer E Smith's The Geography of You and Me

The plot of the book centers around two teenagers; Own and Lucy, who meet when all the power of New York goes out and they are stuck in a lift (Elevator) and their friendship is born. They become quite close until the power comes back on, to when they must return to their normal lives and thus communicate by postcards. 

I love this book so much, especially since it is different to any other contemporary ya book I have read but it is brilliant. When I first of this book, I hadn't really read any Jennifer E Smith books I had only read This is What Happy Looks Like which I adored so of course I gave this a go, and it is truly amazing watching Lucy and Owen go on with their lives apart but still together is brilliant and the way Jennifer E Smith has made it work is magnificent, she is now definitely an author I love and I cannot wait to read her other books .

If you haven't read this yet, I highly recommend it, its cute, its sweet and above all, that its realistic which I adore. The writing is splendid as is the characters and the plot, so please read this, if you are a fan of contemporary you will not be disappointed.

Write again soon
