First Love by James Patterson

Goodreads Summary

The New York Times bestseller First Love is now available in paperback, and illustrated with never-before-seen snapshots evoking the romantic trip of a lifetime.

Axi Moore is a "good girl". When Axi invites her best friend, Robinson--with whom she's secretly in love--to come with her on a cross-country road trip, she's finally breaking all the rules. But they soon find that, however far they run, they can't escape the heartbreaking troubles that brought them together in the first place.

In this madcap adventure full of love and loss, Axi realizes that her romance with Robinson might not have the happy ending she was hoping for....

My Thoughts

First of all, I bought this book with my nieces in mind.  We (my sister, my nieces, and I) had decided to do a book exchange for Christmas this year.  The plan was for all of us to bring a book, new or used, to exchange on Christmas Eve.

I didn't have any books that I wanted to give away (I like to keep my good books and I didn't want to give away a book that I didn't think was good) so I ran to the store to pick out a new book to exchange.  I found this one and it sounded so good that I wanted to read it before I gave it in the exchange.  I read the first two chapters the night I bought it and finished the rest of the book on the 5 1/2 hour drive to their house!  It was soooooo good!

I thought that it was going to be a cute, fun, little book about a girl and boy on an exciting adventure.  It was that in the beginning.... then it turned sad and heart wrenching!!!  It was still so good that I couldn't put it down.  If you enjoy tear jerkers then read this book!

Now, I didn't give it a full 5 stars on Goodreads.  There were a few parts in the book that I could have done without.  Maybe a few things I would change.  But still, I don't even give 4 stars away that often so for this to get a 4 means it's good!  First Love is definitely on my recommend list!
