Lucy and Owen come from two different worlds. Lucy comes from a wealthy family and live on the 24th floor of this upscale Manhattan apartment building. Owen's world shattered when his mom was killed in a car accident and forced his dad to take a job as the apartment building manager. Owen and Lucy meet in the elevator during a blackout. They spend the evening chatting the night away on the rooftop, but the electricity comes back on and the real world interrupts their fairy tale. Lucy moves with her family to Europe and Owen and his dad take off across the country in search of work, The only way they keep in touch is through postcards. From Edinburgh to Lake Tahoe to San Francisco and Paris. Lucy and Owen may meet other people, they may see other places, but in the end, there is only each other. Can their budding relationship survive the miles and geography that separates them?
The Geography of You and Me is a sweet and tender novel about the obstacles one young couple must overcome to keep their relationship going. I truly enjoyed the sweetness of Lucy and Owen. Their relationship was tentative, but pure. It was a quick read, just a couple of hours, but I really enjoyed the way the author laid out the story of Owen and Lucy. They were from two completely different backgrounds, but they didn't let it have any impact in their relationship. Well other than the distance thing. I was pleased with the way the story ended, not too gooey or unrealistic, but just enough to give you hope for the future.
Botton line, The Geography of You and Me is a sweet teen romance novel. Lucy and Owen are great characters and perfect for each other. It is a sweet and quick read and most definitely you can trust with your teen daughter.
