  • Paperback: 298 pages
  • Publisher: Borne Back Books (March 4, 2019)
  • ISBN: 9780985716530


Edwin Green's ex-girlfriend is famous. We're talking cover-of-every-tabloid-in-the-grocery-store-line famous. She dumped Edwin one year ago on what he refers to as Black Saturday, and in hopes of winning her back, he's spent the last twelve months trying to become famous himself. It hasn't gone well.

But when a history class assignment pairs Edwin with Parker Haddaway, the mysterious new girl at school, she introduces him to Garland Lenox, the nursing-home-bound World War II veteran who will change Edwin's life forever. 

The three escape to France, in search of the old man's long-lost love, and as word of their hilarious adventure spreads, they become media darlings. But when things fall apart, they also become the focus of French authorities. In a race against time, who will find love, and who will only find more heartache?



Chad Alan Gibbs lives in Alabama with his wife, two sons, two dogs, and an embarrassingly large collection of Star Wars action figures. Two Like Me and You is his first novel.


REVIEW:
This story took about 60-65 pages to get into, but then it really picked up speed.
In love all of the main characters, Garland, Parker and Edwin. Man, you can't help but root for them all along the way. The laws they break, comically, can't be helped. The experiences they have, all come around in the end for a much bigger picture.
It was pretty brilliant when I closed the last page.
And God, how I wanted more.
I need to know if Parker and Edwin turn out like Garland and Madeleine, or do they make it in the end....
*breathe*
I have to highlight Chapter 37. I hate dog-earring a page, but had to for this one. This whole chapter was the highlight of the book for me. I laughed so hard out loud that I literally ended up reading aloud the chapter to my hubby. He then laughed as hard as I did. It was epic!
You all reading this review must read this book. It's one of the best debuts I have ever have the delight of reading myself. I definitely recommend it!

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
