First Love – James Patterson & Emily Raymond ★★★★

Blurb; An extraordinary portrait of true love that will move anyone who has a first love story of their own. Axi Moore is a “good girl”: She studies hard, stays out of the spotlight, and doesn’t tell anyone how all she really wants is to run away from it all. The only person she can tell is her best friend, Robinson–who she also happens to be madly in love with.

When Axi spontaneously invites Robinson to come with her on an impulsive cross-country road trip, she breaks the rules for the first time in her life. But the adventure quickly turns from carefree to out of control after the teens find themselves on the run from the police. And when Robinson suddenly collapses, Axi has to face the truth that this trip might be his last.

A remarkably moving tale very personal to James Patterson’s own past, FIRST LOVE is testament to the power of first love–and how it can change the rest of your life.

My Review; As many of you know I love anything James Patterson. This is an adorable story of falling in love with your best friend. After they run away together and set out on an adventure to the unknown, no destination, no plans just to leave their town you can slowly see these two characters fall in love while causing chaos along the way. From stealing cars. Evading the cops. To running away from a hospital. To accidents. This story has it all. The old paperback has no illustrations but the ebook included the odd illustration. An easy read. The ending was sad, upsetting the whole story before the end just started to make sense and piece it all together. Tissues may be needed it made me tear up anyway. Perfect read for readers who enjoyed the fault in our stars. Emotional. Beautiful. Highly recommend. A well deserved four stars from me.
