Publisher's summary

Lucy lives on the 24th 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?

Smartly observed and wonderfully romantic, Jennifer E. Smith's new novel shows that the center of the world isn't necessarily a place. Sometimes, it can be a person.

It was okay

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I'd recommend they go into this cautiously. It's not great but not horrible either.

Would you recommend The Geography of You and Me to your friends? Why or why not?

If I know we have different taste in books maybe. (i.e.- I watch a booktuber who I notice we read similar books but books she tends to love, I think are just OK or don't like at all)

What aspect of Leslie Bellair and Corey Bradberry ’s performance would you have changed?

Not have Corey Bradberry read it. His voice just didn't fit well with any of the characters. They just didn't sound how I'd picture them while reading. Leslie was wonderful though.

Was The Geography of You and Me worth the listening time?

Outside of my not enjoying the male narrator, yes.

Cutsie Fluff

This book was very light and fluffy. It was predictable to a fault at points, but certain themes have to tug at your heartstrings unless you're dead, so I will give it points there. It was basically like watching a family film on the Hallmark Channel. I recommend it for ages 13-18 in particular. Perhaps older if you just want something surface level and quick to make you smile.
