Blurb: Are they meant to be, or better apart?
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 trip class 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.
Alex and Lulu meet in Freshmen year and Lulu thinks there might be a spark between them, until he becomes an enemy instead. Miranda Kenneally’s Four Days of You and Me follows Lulu and Alex from Freshmen year to Senior year, four field trips, four different phases in their relationship.
Four Days of You and Me was a quick enjoyable read. I liked the character of Lulu and Alex as well as the secondary characters and I especially liked as we watched them grow through the years, become more mature and responsible. There are the typical angsty moments and fun ones, misunderstandings, and sweetness.
Like Defending Taylor, which I reviewed on this blog in 2016, Four Days of You and Me has a sexual element, that while not out of character for high school seniors, some readers might find objectionable.
As in the other Kenneally novels I’ve read, Four Days of You and Me does include sports as Alex is an excellent baseball player (I miss baseball!) so if you enjoy YA sports novels, you will be happy. Also, Lulu is a graphic novelist creating an apocalyptic story, which many readers might find intriguing.
If you’re a Miranda Kenneally fan, this is a must read!
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
