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 adored this book so much! I read it in one day, even though I had only gotten to page 68 by dinner time and didn’t pick it up again until bedtime. However once I started reading, I was up all night finishing because I had to know how each day was going to go. Each day was the class field trip at the end of every year of high school. But mixed into the day’s story were flashbacks to how things had gone between Lulu and Alex throughout the rest of the school year, and in between each of the days as well.
The romance was sweet, and just made me smile. But it was so funny and totally made sense why they fought at times, and why they were apart at times. Even when they were apart, if it was seemingly a silly reason, it made sense for a teenager to feel that way. That part was so real there was even one of the characters, Ryan, who was so funny with his snarky, somewhat kiss-up comments to teacher. At one point he said something that I know I’d had students in the past say to me. It just cracked me up.
This is my first book by this author and I’m wondering why! I’ll be sure to look into her future books, as well as purchase them for my school library with future budget money.
