GOODREADS SYNOPSIS:

Sophia has seven days left in Tokyo before she moves back to the States. Seven days to say good-bye to the electric city, her wild best friend, and the boy she’s harbored a semi-secret crush on for years. Seven perfect days…until Jamie Foster-Collins moves back to Japan and ruins everything.

Jamie and Sophia have a history of heartbreak, and the last thing Sophia wants is for him to steal her leaving thunder with his stupid arriving thunder. Yet as the week counts down, the relationships she thought were stable begin to explode around her. And Jamie is the one who helps her pick up the pieces. Sophia is forced to admit she may have misjudged Jamie, but can their seven short days of Tokyo adventures end in anything but good-bye?

MY THOUGHTS:

This book was an adorable contemporary read. I found it predictable, which I tend to find most contemporary books lately. It was cute and sweet, which is just why I wanted to read it. I like when I want to read a specific type of book and pick up just what I want. This was the case with this book. I enjoyed it the whole time I was reading it. I found all the descriptions of Tokyo making me want to be there now.

I liked all of the characters, they did a lot of growing up throughout the story. I enjoyed the drama that was going on between the friends, it really made each of them look at their friendships deeply. I thought Sophia was a wonderful main character. She was funny, confused, and just pretty normal. I liked how there were other topics touched on throughout the book and not just the love story. There were family issues, friendship drama, and also all of the issues surrounding moving to another country.

Overall I thought this book was wonderful. I really enjoyed it the whole time I was reading it. While I got annoyed at certain character’s actions and words, it was just what the story needed to come full circle. If you are a fan of Gayle Forman’s Just One Day, I would definitely pick this book up.

  1. Great review! I don’t know if this would be my kind of thing. I seem to like Contemporary a lot lately but before reading books in this genre, I’m never really sure, if I’m going to like it or not 🙂

  2. I love the cover of this book! It sounds like something I would probably really enjoy – there are certain times where I love just reading very cute, fairly non-eventful, predictable stories! Will definitely have to check this one out! I always love your book reviews!
