Now in paperback with a new cover, Jennifer E. Smith’s breathtaking novel about finding out where you are going by discovering what you’ve left behind.Emma and her neighbor Peter are both lonely in a way that only bothers them on occasion. They both come from families they don’t quite understand. They both feel like something big is missing from their lives—and they’re both about to search for answers. When Emma makes a discovery that shakes the foundations of her identity, she convinces Peter to join her for a road trip. Each of them has something to find: For Emma, it is a grave—a grave that may be her only connection to her family. Peter is seeking something harder to define, but perhaps easier to navigate—a freedom, a sense of something more than what he has. Together, they take to the open road, engaging in a universal quest to make sense of who they are and where they come from…and learning a thing or two about love along the way.

After reading The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight I almost felt as if it were my duty to read You Are Here. It was a lovely novel, full of so many morals and virtues, but I found that, perhaps, it wasn't exactly my type of book. Emma Healy and Peter (last name forgotten) are neighbors...
I was scared going into this book. I hadn’t heard very good things and that is for very good reasons. Because honestly this book just wasn’t that good. I tried to keep an open mind, to think for myself, but everything I had heard had been right. Nothing happened until 90 pages in and even that wasn’...
review in a few... 2.5 :( (where have all the good YA contemps gone?)
