discovery It s a book about making big choices, finding yourself, believing in love, and leaning on your friends These characters mean so much to me and Paige and Max stole my heart I was emotionally invested in their story I laughed, I cried, and I felt so much If you haven t read these books, you are missing out They re truly exceptional I really hope this book contain A LOT OF MAX. no one is allowed to talk to me for at least a week I m too fragile after finishing this book I m a big Emery Lord fan, and The Start of Me and You is my favorite of her novels So, I was experiencing a mix of anticipation and nerves when The Map From Here to There, which is the long awaited follow up story, was announced It didn t help that, upon picking up this sequel, I was coming off a reread of its predecessor that had left me perfectly content with that lovely ending I knew going into it that my beloved characters wouldn t be staying happy, simply because 1 this is a sequel and I m a big Emery Lord fan, and The Start of Me and You is my favorite of her novels So, I was experiencing a mix of anticipation and nerves when The Map From Here to There, which is the long awaited follow up story, was announced It didn t help that, upon picking up this sequel, I was coming off a reread of its predecessor that had left me perfectly content with that lovely ending I knew going into it that my beloved characters wouldn t be staying happy, simply because 1 this is a sequel and there would be no plot but plenty of fluff if everyone was still happy and 2 life isn t always that simple especially if you re a teen on the brink of a big life change True enough, Paige and her friends are all navigating their senior year experiences and the future that lies ahead of them The story highlights all the best parts and difficult bits of being a high school senior, as well as capturing the maelstrom of both nostalgia for the present and excitement or trepidation for the future And, in every aspect, it was entirely relatable It might have been years since I was in the same position as these teens, but man, did this story bring me right back to when I was a high school senior Lord s portrayal of this period in most of our lives felt realistic, as she does cover the highlights reel, the complicated growth relationships can get pushed into and the hard choices that need to be made sometimes with her storytelling Through the ups and the downs, I was thoroughly immersed in the outcome of this chapter in Paige s life I loved the authenticity that rang throughout this story, and I would highly recommend checking out The Map From Here To There You can technically read this without reading The Start of Me and You, but the emotional impact is much greater if you read the first part of Paige s story prior to checking this one out Blog Instagram YouTube Twitter THE START OF ME AND YOU was published back in 2015 but, unlike so many readers, I only read it a few months ago And I only picked it up after hearing that there was a much anticipated or was it unexpected sequel to be released I ll admit that it was a little rocky for me at times but everything that didn t quite work. eventually did It was such an interesting, and eventually enjoyable, evolution But the romance is where it didn t quite ever shine for me.This time, everything from before THE START OF ME

be released I ll admit that it was a little rocky for me at times but everything that didn t quite work. eventually did It was such an interesting, and eventually enjoyable, evolution But the romance is where it didn t quite ever shine for me.This time, everything from before is still in play, but different Things feel bigger in this final year of highschool transition into college, and futures, and being away from family, friends, and loved ones And particularly for Paige and Max who, in the final pages of book one, admit their feelings, only to then be facing a summer apart.It s in the early chapters of THE MAP FROM HERE TO THERE that they are reunited, and in the first real blush of in person boyfriend and girlfriend, post all the months where the heart grew fonder, everything is great Until it isn t.I actually so appreciated this approach It finally sold me on the romance, without making it seem like an excuse to a have a second book and b just drag out the real payoff, because I felt so much of what they were both going through to be completely reasonable But though the romance and angst does take a slightly bigger focus than it did in book one, this is still mainly about friendships And, wow, the friend group Amazing The dynamics are beautiful, the heartbreaks, even the fights, it s all so great Despite this praise, I wouldn t say this book ever really hit that wow factor moment for me, even though so much of it just. worked, and it moved me enough to make me weepy More than once But it s in the aftermath, the quiet, the pause for reflection, that I realize just how much I enjoyed this This really felt like such a great, healthy, realistic, and delightful, portrayal of this time period of one s life, while still being fun and grounded, and tackling very real emotional struggles and worries Everything you want for YA audiences and above.Would recommend I received an ARC from Edelweiss and the publisher thank you in exchange for an honest review This

constant push and pull with Max made me want to rip out my hair And don t get me started on the nearly entire book long implication of a love triangle I will say that Emery knows how to write a group of friends, especially female friends, and as always, she delivers in that aspect.Overall, it was perfectly messy slice of time I wantedanswers and sweetness and togetherness There was a quiet settling when I finished and I realized even though I didn t get them, it all worked beautifully.This review isn t even close to what I want to say and I feel like it s sort of perfect for this book There were loads of things I loved and several things I didn t care for And while, I wasn t ever captivated by the story, I did want to know how it all turned out Huge thanks to Bloomsbury for providing the arc free of charge I N E E D this book Like,ASAP I LOVED The Start of Me and You there d better be lots of Max in this I ve thought about this for a few hours, and I m dropping it down

in these characters from the first book, I honestly wouldn t have cared Paige seemed very whiny and was not good at all at standing up for herself which was supposed to be the entire lesson she learned in the first book She s s I ve thought about this for a few hours, and I m dropping it down to two stars I m super sad to do that This fell victim to the overplayed trope of after high school

Max seemed fine, but he kind of bugged me I feel like drama was made to have drama, and none of it felt actually worth it The ending was kind of just blah, and I m really sad that I expected muchI really loved The Start of Me and You, and I loved seeing Paige grow This feltlike a prequel to that because she was just as timid, if not , than she was from the very first introduction I received a copy of this title via NetGalley It does not impact my review.I noticed that I shelved The Map from Here to There as To Read on Goodreads back in September 2017 I was lucky enough to get an ARC and read this in September 2019 That is a long time to anticipate the book and hype it up I wish I could say it met my very high expectations, but, unfortunately, it did not Don t get me wrong, there were still plenty of enjoyable moments One of the things I loved about The Start of M I received a copy of this title via NetGalley It does not impact my review.I noticed that I shelved The Map from Here

met my very high expectations, but, unfortunately, it did not Don t get me wrong, there were still plenty of enjoyable moments One of the things I loved about The Start of Me and You were the strong friendships and they were still on display here Yes, there was some drama and fights, but they worked through them and were always there for each other There were several funny, bantery moments that I enjoyed, as well I also liked that Paige s parents were a strong presence in the book.There was a lot in this book that didn t work for me, though Paige had a lot of issues to work through in the first book and by the end she was starting to figure it out Instead of her continuing to progress, she had a major relapse back into anxiety and it kind of made all the lessons learned in the first book obsolete I did find the anxiety stuff relatable, but I would have rather seen Paige continue to grow, instead of spending the majority of yet another book as a mess and still not communicating it and then finally growing in the final couple chapters.Some of the problems I had with this book are probablymy fault than the books, though I wanted a cute book of Max and Paige being adorable together Yes, I knew there would have to be some strife, but I thought hoped it would be a small part of the plot Instead, we got very few scenes with them together, unless they were fighting Paige treated him so, so unfairly and it drove me crazy He was patient and understanding for awhile, but eventually reached a breaking point where he didn t handle things well There is a new character introduced Paige s co worker at the movie theater that Paige hung out with and talked to like she did Max in the first book He was also there to stir some jealousy and insecurity in Max And once that role was played out, we don t really hear anyabout him Which annoyed me because even though I didn t like his purpose in the story, he was sweet and funny and I liked him But back to my original point, the story was muchabout the anxiety about growing up and making hard decisions and dealing with change And this made me feel a little too old for the story As a cynical adult who has never had a job that utilized her college degree, nor is no longer friends with any of the people she was close to in high school and college, these major crises the characters faced felt a little trivial I do remember being in high school and thinking these decisions were life and death, so I get it, but I m just so far past that, that it was kind of hard to take so seriously I also am not a fan of open ended conclusions The biggest focus of the book is where Paige will go to college and the story ends without a definitive answer and that kind of pissed me off.Another thing that bugged me is that Tess and Ryan aren t together I felt it was very heavily implied in the first book that they would get together I thought her whole arc in the story was how she was all closed off due to her abandonment issues with her parents, but Ryan slowly won her over Instead, the author decided to fix the lack of LGBT diversity from the first book by giving Tessa a girlfriend instead Not only did I not even get a hint of this in the first book, but it basically skips over the whole coming out part of the book by referencing how it happened in the summer, conveniently between the end of book one and start of book two Don t misunderstand, I support adiverse cast of characters, but it annoyed me to see Tessa with anyone but Ryan.Overall, The Map from Here to There was just ok for me I enjoyed parts of it, but had a lot of issues with it, as well I liked the first book much , but I think people in the actual target audience age range will appreciate this book muchthan I did.Overall Rating out of 5 3 Stars
