Goodreads Summary:

Ever since last year’s homecoming dance, best friends-turned-best enemies Zorie and Lennon have made an art of avoiding each other. It doesn’t hurt that their families are the modern day, Californian version of the Montagues and Capulets.

But when a group camping trip goes south, Zorie and Lennon find themselves stranded in the wilderness. Alone. Together.

What could go wrong?

With no one but each other for company, Zorie and Lennon have no choice but to hash out their issues via witty jabs and insults as they try to make their way to safety. But fighting each other while also fighting off the forces of nature makes getting out of the woods in one piece less and less likely.

And as the two travel deeper into Northern California’s rugged backcountry, secrets and hidden feelings surface. But can Zorie and Lennon’s rekindled connection survive out in the real world? Or was it just a result of the fresh forest air and the magic of the twinkling stars?

My Review:

I absolutely loved The Anatomical Shape of A Heart by Jenn Bennett, so when I saw this I was like oooooh I have to read it. I generally am let down by most YA contemporary with an exception of a few authors. This one was really good! Camping in the wilderness? Come on, that’s awesome!

So at first to be honest, I was pretty annoyed with the MC in the first couple of chapters. She eventually got on my good side as I delved deeper into the book. I also really liked her name—Zorie. Now, Lennon I loved from the first moment he appeared on the pages—funny and adorable!

There was just so much cuteness it’s insane! The writing was funny, beautiful, and addicting. I need to go ahead and read her other book Alex, Approximately because I still haven’t read that one! I know it’s early in the year but so far this is my favorite contemporary this year.
