Seven Days of YouSophia 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 daysuntil Jamie Foster Co. Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || || PinterestOkay so the idea of a bunch of white kids in Japan well one of them is Japanese had me rolling my eyes a bit But I'm a sucker for books set abroad and since I went on a trip to Japan myself a few years ago I was excited to relive my trip vicariously since you know with uarantine happening I ain't going nowhereI read in another review that this is a very loose retelling of PERSUASION by Jane Austen and I can kind of see that Heads up that the storyline is very dramatic and confusing so there are going to be lots of spoilers not just so you can keep everything straight but so I can too because there is a LOT going onSo Sophia's parents are both teachers but split when she was young Now her dad lives in Paris with his new family and her mom teaches as a professor in Japan but is about to move back to the states to teach at Rutgers This is Sophia's last week in Japan and she's kicking it with her Japanese friend Mika and their friend David who is the son of the Australian ambassadorBut plans sour when Sophia finds out that her childhood friend Jamie is returning Jamie who she stopped being friends with when he accidentally sent her a cruel text intended for Mika that was making fun of her for having a crush on David who's kind of a playboy with a cruel streak Sophia told him off and never wanted to have anything to do with him again after that so why is he HEREAs they club it up and go to karaoke bars alcohol makes the truth come out David and his girlfriend Caroline seem to be on the rocks which gives Sophia hope she hates Caroline But Jamie is way cuter than he was when he left and no longer seems to be as awkward or mean Mika on the other hand seems to be hiding something and David has actually gotten indiscriminately crueler or maybe she's just never taken the time to notice his character So it turns out that David and Mika have actually been hooking up despite David having a girlfriend and despite Mika and David knowing how Sophia feels about David and then Sophia finds out that her dad doesn't really want her to move with him to Paris and when Jamie makes his move he gets totally caught in the crossfireThis book was OH MY GOD SO MUCH DRAMA but I actually enjoyed it a lot Unlike ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS which made me want to slap all the bitches Sophia is respectful of Japanese culture for the most part and Tokyo exists than just as a backdrop I've been to the exact two story Starbucks in Shibuya that they went to I've seen the Hachiko statue and I've definitely made late night runs to konbini which if you've ever been to one of the Japanese ones will make you cry in shame when you compare them to what convenience stores are like hereSo part of my review is definitely biased by the fact that huge swaths of this book were a big old nostalgia rush But I also felt like all the drama felt realistic Teens are d r a m a t i c And one of my uotes is that I'm down with stupid decisions if it's a character flaw and not an author flaw I think people sometimes forget how stupid they were as teenagers and how incestuous friend groups can be when it comes to dating I was in band and there was always so much drama when couples broke up I remember on one of our trips people were sending envoys in one of our hotel to deliver messages to each other because they were too mad to talk in person post breakup #dramaAnd also this book really captures what it's like to be on the cusp of adulthood wanting change but fearing it; feeling nostalgic for childhood while anxious to leave it; making mistakes just to feel the rush It's a tumultuous time and I feel like SEVEN DAYS OF YOU really captures the yearning feeling that so many teens have even if they're not uite sure what they're yearning forI read this fully expecting to hate it and it ended up being exactly what I needed Even if you're side eying the white kid cultural tourism angle I feel like it's done pretty well and the author seems to have a passion for all elements of Japanese culture beyond the anime ones The descriptions of the food the shrines the karaoke parlors and even the convenience stores are all so lovingly done it makes me want to go back there asap even though the summers are hell and this book portrayed that uite well too and God help you if your AC craps out Definitely recommend this for anyone who wants to go to Japan has been and is feeling nostalgic or enjoys YA with older characters4 stars

S 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. Seven Days of You sounded like a super cute book and I was so excited to read it However this book was a hot mess My biggest problem with this book is the main character She's in high school but she acts like she's seven years old Everything from the way she talks to how she handles situations is shockingly immature Not to mention how her name is Sophia but her friends call her Sofa I found that incredibly annoying and just weird Her relationship with her best friend was messed up and very shallow The guys in this book are all awful and I couldn't stand them To be honest I couldn't stand any of the characters I was so excited that this book took place in Tokyo but nothing about Seven Days of You said Tokyo This book could have taken place anywhere in the world because it brought nothing Tokyo to the table It was just another YA with a boring setting I was expecting Japanese culture but I got noneI wish I had loved this book I really do but I didn't like it at all It was poorly written with awful characters and a disappointing setting

I received an advance copy of this book for free Thanks to Little Brown Books for Young Readers and NetGalleyThis was a YA contemporary romance about a relationship that develops over a weekSophia was an okay character and I felt uite sorry for her that she was being forced to leave her home and the way her father treated her wasn’t very nice eitherThe storyline was about a whirlwind romance between Sophia and a boy called Jamie who she originally claimed to dislike We got a couple of revelations from friend which were surprising but I did lose interest a bit as the book went onThe ending to this was okay although it wasn’t exactly a happily ever after6 out of 10
