The Geography of You and Me

The Geography of You and Me - Jennifer E. Smith

They were like a couple of asteroids that had collided, she and Owen, briefly sparking before ricocheting off again, a little chipped, maybe even a little scarred, but with miles and miles still to go.

As opposed to some of the types of books that I read this was a nice, light book that would make a good summer read. I was really drawn to this because the two main characters, Lucy and Owen, meet during a major power outage (which was clearly inspired by the blackout on the East coast in 2003).


Lucy and Owen were both easy to connect with but I felt like Owen had much more depth than Lucy. Even though they were both interesting characters, I often found myself more interested in the parts from Owen's point-of-view.


I liked the plot progression and the character growth. I just loved the relationship between Lucy and Owen and was happy to see where they were at the end. I would recommend this book to fans of the young adult genre.
