How can I put into words how brilliant, heart-breaking. Jeez this book made me cry, halfway through is when the tears started, towards the end is when the ugly crying started, and that to me is the work of a fantastic storyteller, one who has you caring about the characters so much that you're left emotionally bereft at the end. I've never read a James Patterson book before, but after reading First Love that is definitely going to change, this book has rocketed up into my list of all-time favorites, a really great contemporary romance based around a road trip with two best friends Axi and Robinson, who will finally admit their feelings for one another in amidst their hijnks during their time on the road, while realising that sometimes life will take a turn that you would never anticipate.
I don't want to write too much and give the plot away, but all you contemporary romance fans need to pick this book up, it's amazing, a quick and fast read that's never boring and will keep you glued to the pages up till the very end. Loved it, loved it, loved it! Highly recommended. View all 6 comments. Feb 15, Jennifer Bloom rated it did not like it. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

Seriously, James?? OK, I can almost forgive the complete and total ripoff of Fault in our Stars, as I am sure we will be seeing a lot of those in the upcoming months, but, that aside, the utter implausibility of this book made me slightly insane. To begin The drove from Oregon to California, California to Vegas, Vegas to wherever the hell they were when they stopped in a hospital for a couple of days, hospital to New York, New York to Philly and, finally, Philly to some undisclosed location in the Carolinas.
Three weeks. With plenty of time to stop and camp in the Redwoods, explore Hollywood, hook up with a stripper in Vegas, land in the hospital But, let us not forget that at the end of three weeks Another rather glaring plot point Roughly two weeks before you are so weak you are dead?? You managed to turn his gun on him and lock him up in his trunk??
I can't. The hospital trip. We are really expected to believe two minors can stroll on into a hospital, one of them clearly dying of cancer and they just take the in, no questions asked.
Nobody is worried about insurance, parents, payment. And, clearly, this is the most ridiculous hospital in the worl Then, the 1, mile journey in a broken down truck seemed to happen overnight We just knocked that out in a night.
Apparently, gas is free in stolen vehicles. Again, fantastic. Then the very dramatic death. It read like a lot of time was passing. Nope, turned out to just be a couple of days. We went from holding up a cop at gun point to death in like 10 days. I get that cancer moves fast, but Then, the brat, I'm sorry Finally returns home and rather nobly turns herself into the police. And then has to go into remedial Physics because skipping three weeks of classes when you are at an AP level apparently just renders you completely stupid.
I truly thought this book was just awful. It was hard to root for whatever their names were because they were kind of just spoiled brats. I expect we are meant to feel bad for them since they both had cancer. I'm sorry, but I don't think that excuses a crime spree as they be-bop their way across America. Honestly, I hope she ends up stuck in that town forever. View all 17 comments. The only misfit in the whole affair is James Patterson. View 1 comment. Poor attempt at describing a first love. I was really surprised to see the authors glorifying two runaways and stealing a car.
Gee, we all had first loves but didn't do things like that. I think Patterson hardly even wrote this book and if he did, I may stop reading him altogether. And to think he co authored this book in memory of his first love who died young. What a shame this was the forum he used to express their time together.

A beautiful story which I have no hesitation in recommending.

As someone who loves reading road trip novels, this sounded like my cup of tea.
But after starting the book, I was finding the pacing incredibly fast which made the trip a little unrealistic in my view.

Overall, I was disappointed.
The story followed two characters called Axi and Robinson. Axi had a tough upbringing and she's secretly hidden a crush on Robinson from him for a while. She plans to reveal all on their road trip together. The story follows the road trip and the events that occur including stealing a motorbike.
I still love road trip novels though, my reading experience from them wasn't vanished because of this book so if you know any good road trip novels, feel free to recommend some.

Short yet sweet story about two young people who fall in love despite the challenges they hope to outrun. I came across First Love and for a couple of reasons it caught my attention. Putting these two elements together, I was sure First Love would capture my interest.
In this novel, Axi Moore and her best friend Robinson decide to throw caution to the wind and take an epic road tri Short yet sweet story about two young people who fall in love despite the challenges they hope to outrun. In this novel, Axi Moore and her best friend Robinson decide to throw caution to the wind and take an epic road trip while time is still on their side. This decision is huge because everyone knows that Axi is the straight and narrow girl who gets good grades and always does what is expected of her. Her best friend Robinson is the charming boy who can get away with murder and charm the pants off of anyone.
There were a few things that seemed a bit choppy with this story. I find it hard to believe that two teenagers can do so much in three weeks on such limited funds, as well as committing a few crimes along the way. If this novel were a bit longer and better developed, I think their story would have been more plausible and believable.
Overall, this was a quick and heartfelt story despite its flaws. Axi Moore had a big surprise for her best friend. Robinson was one she never seemed to be able to shock, but this time she hoped she could. But she wanted to put a dent in that title. Robinson would make it so much better - her nickname for him was Scalawag; he lived up to it daily with a mischievous smile to add to the tag.
And so their journey began — before dawn one morning she snuck out of her apartment, leaving her dad asleep on the couch, and met Robinson near the bus depot.
