    Laugh and cry great YA debut

    "So hypothetically, if someone had an opportunity to win back the love of his life, an opportunity of, let’s call it, questionable legality, should he take it?” 📖Two Like Me and You 📖 🖋Chad Alan Gibbs Much thanks to NetGalley, Victory Editing, Borne Back Books and Chad Alan Gibbs for this complimentary copy. This review is voluntary and opinions are fully my own. 📚 Series: No. 📚 Genre: Young Adult (Fame/Adventure/Coming of Age) 📚 POV: First person. 📚 Cliffhanger: No. ⚠ Content Warnings: Use of guns. Kidnapping/Abduction. World War II Stories. ⚠ Read if: you are in need of a funny feel-good YA adventure. Think: John Green-ish. 🌹 Two Like Me and You is an amazing debut novel that will make you laugh out loud and then squeeze your heart in the end. Edwin Green, a highschool student got dumped when his girlfriend suddenly skyrocketed into fame. He definitely wants to win her back and keeps trying to make himself famous just so she will notice him again. A history class project got him partnered with Parker Haddaway, his high school's new girl with mysterious past. The project led him to meet Garland Lenox, a World War II veteran stuck in a nursing home whose only wish is to reunite with his long lost love... in France. This book was a rollercoaster of adventures of this unlikely trio. There's a lot of too-good-to-be-true but ridiculously funny scenes. There's a lot of law breaking reminiscent of a good old comedy film. But very cute and very sweet. It was so easy to read and I felt like it was unputdownable that I read it overnight! Though Parker fit the Manic Pixie Dream Girl formula that most readers hate, I still fell for her and loved her and it is quite sad to have finished reading this so quickly and not read about her anymore. I have to commend the very beautiful insights of this book. The connection between the characters were strong. I am sure Edwin grew up a lot from the adventures and all the lessons he learned are lessons that I will also keep close to my heart. Chad Alan Gibbs did a great job at this debut. Very interested to read his future works! ☁ THE CRITERIA ☁ 🌻 Blurb:⭐⭐⭐⭐ 🌻 Hero:⭐⭐⭐⭐ 🌻 Heroine:⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 🌻 Support Characters:⭐⭐⭐⭐ 🌻 Writing Style:⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 🌻 Character Development:⭐⭐⭐⭐ 🌻 Romance:⭐⭐⭐ 🌻 Pacing:⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 🌻 Ending:⭐⭐⭐ 🌻 Page Turner:⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 🌻 Book Cover:⭐⭐⭐ ☁FINAL VERDICT: 4.09/5 ☁

    Highly recommended!

    A very good, engaging and entertaining book. It's well written, the likable characters are fleshed out and the plot keeps you hooked till the last page. Even if it's classified as YA it can be fully appreciated by adults as it's a such a good book. I look forward to reading other books by this author. Highly recommended! Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine.

    Witty, funny and pulls at your heartstrings

    This book was so stinking cute. It was witty, hilarious and the main trio worked so well together. It was an adventure filled with so much randomness, but also history and love in the most unpredictible ways. It was a great summer read, I enjoyed sitting by the lake while reading. It felt lighthearted but it definitely was deeper than that. I think Chad Gibbs did an awesome job with his first novel. I am excited to read what he has in store next!

    Pick up this YA novel that is authentic and pure!

    Edwin Green. A young man whose heart was broken one year ago by Sadie Even, now one of the most famous teen stars in the world. Edwin now tries dodge any questions about his ex, but has a secret fantasy of becoming famous himself and winning her back. He has set up a YouTube channel and posts videos of his daily happenings; the problem is that he only has half a dozen followers, so far. Parker Haddaway. The new girl at school who keeps to herself. 7 schools in 4 years will do that to a kid. She's turned down countless "cool guys" for dates. Yet, when the history teacher announces a new assignment to interview someone who remembers WW2, she immediately chooses Edwin as her partner. Garland Lenox. A nonagenarian WW2 veteran who lives at the old folks home where Parker's aunt works. His stories are crazy... but there might be some truth in some of them. One that he keeps repeating is the story of getting shot down over France just before D-Day and being sheltered by a beautiful woman named Madeleine. They comprise the most unlikely crew and set out on a covert mission to fly over the Atlantic to find Garland's lost love. Let me tell you all the ways I loved this book: Three distinct voices that are funny, original, and heartfelt. "In which our hero complains about his assigned seat" -  an example of one of the witty chapter headlines that kept looking for clues. Hidden and not so hidden references to 90s hip hop, movie quotes, and all kinds of historical mishaps. A wild romp of a plot. Seventy years of feelings... An ode to rebirth, a new start, and a man's last wish. Pick up this YA novel that is authentic and pure! 5 out of 5 stars.

    My favorite read of the year so far

    Edwin Green teams up with new girl Parker Haddaway for a history assignment in which they have to interview someone who lived through World War II. That’s how he meets Garland Lennox and somehow agrees to help “a crazy girl bust a ninety-year-old man out of his nursing home so we can take him to France against his attorney’s wishes to find a woman he met during World War II, all in the hope of becoming famous and winning back my ex-girlfriend.” Let’s see how that goes! Our narrator Edwin is immediately engaging, with his fantastically sarcastic voice and love of lists. The way he weaves his story keeps you hooked, as do the outlandish chapter headings that give us a tantalizing taste of what is to come (ending in Chapter 66 with “In which—oh hell, just read it and find out.”). The book is full of laugh-out-loud moments, and the author’s humor is even evident in his Acknowledgments section, which is the funniest I have come across. Despite the levity, the book also contains some of the most heart-wrenching descriptions of the war and one of the most bittersweet young adult romances that I have read. This is a wonderfully romantic and wacky story that will leave you yearning for more. As Garland Lennox is fond of saying, “You can’t make this shit up.” Except that the author did. Or did he? My favorite read of the year so far. Even more amazing now I know it’s the author’s first novel. Warnings: coarse language, war, suicide, sexual references, violence. I received this book in return for an honest review. Full blog post (31 May): https://www.booksdirectonline.com/2019/05/two-like-me-and-you-by-chad-alan-gibbs.html
