Editorial reviews

Editors Select, January 2014 - Inspired by James Patterson’s own young love story, First Love tells the tale of two star-crossed teenagers, Axi and Robinson, beginning in the small town of Klamath Falls, Oregon. Axi, the good girl dealt a bad hand in life, decides to leave it all behind and with the money she’s earned as top-babysitter, venture out on the road trip of a lifetime. She invites her best pal and bad boy, secret crush Robinson along for the ride, and before you know it the two become a real-life Bonnie and Clyde. As the truth behind the trip begins to emerge, the carefree pair quickly learn that even in a fast car, reality always has a way of catching up to you. Through the eyes of characters wise beyond their years, First Love hits on the awkward and tingly feelings of being young and in love, and is a refreshing reminder that life is best lived from the driver’s seat. Regina, Audible Editor

Publisher's summary

We thought we could run away from the world.

A mad adventure across the country

We thought we could escape time.

And for a while - we did....

Axi Moore is a "good girl": She studies hard, stays out of the spotlight, and doesn't tell anyone that what she really wants is to run away from it all. The only person she can tell is her best friend, Robinson - who she also happens to be madly in love with.

When Axi impulsively invites Robinson to come with her on an unplanned cross-country road trip, she breaks the rules for the first time in her life. But the adventure quickly turns from carefree to out-of-control....

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.
