The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E. Smith (4)

Lucy lives on the twenty-fourth floor. Owen lives in the basement. It's fitting, then, that they meet in the middle -- stuck between two floors of a New York City apartment building, on an elevator rendered useless by a citywide blackout. After they're rescued, Lucy and Owen spend the night wandering the darkened streets and marveling at the rare appearance of stars above Manhattan. But once the power is back, so is reality. Lucy soon moves abroad with her parents, while Owen heads out west with his father.

The brief time they spend together leaves a mark. And as their lives take them to Edinburgh and to San Francisco, to Prague and to Portland, Lucy and Owen stay in touch through postcards, occasional e-mails, and phone calls. But can they -- despite the odds -- find a way to reunite?


Jennifer E. Smith is the author of eight books for young adults, including Field Notes on Love, Windfall, and The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight. She earned a master’s degree in creative writing from the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, and her work has been translated into thirty-three languages. She currently lives in New York City.

REVIEW:
This has been on my TBR for a really long time. I'm in the mood for a rom com, so here we go!
It made me so happy in the end!
There were a couple of slight things about the story that bothered me, like how long it took for them to get together again. Geez. All-in-all it was a great romance. They characters were interesting and had great chemistry. I was glad to see the other two go, like bye. It was only ever about Lucy and Owen.
What a cute way to have a romance bud. I have to admit, the beginning was kind of scary with the pandemic stuff we're going through. When the lights went out all over the US and Canada, I was like, oh no, it's the apocolypse! It wasn't, but still. Way to get a chick going!
YA fans are gonna love this one if they haven't read it already. Now I need to read her other two books!


4.5/5

Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would
