I liked it. Not a fan of the ending, but I liked it. Not my first pick, though, and quick read.

If you liked Fault in Our Stars, you will like First Love. Two teens with tough home lives in small town American what to cut loose. I wasn't sure when I read the first few chapters, but then about halfway through it was Oh, Now I Get It. If you cry easily, you might need some tissues. Like Axi (like the name) I was kind of wondering where the Amber Alerts were and the where are my children? And how did they steal so many modes of trasnportation across the U. S. and not get caught? Where did the money come from because I'm pretty sure the amount they had didn't go very far. I don't want to give away anymore with my questions. A quick read. Literally, I finished it in a day.

Quick read...I always dreamt about going cross country...with the one you think you love...I could never.
I loved the statement "Okay cancer is scary, but love is terrifying...but also exhilarating and bewildering and miraculous". I feel that is what we are all looking for...but in the meantime enjoy your life.

It's a qiuick read but not one of his best. He's cranking them out too fast now. He also writes better alone.

I loved this book! Quick read. I knew it would end badly, however, it still got to me. A real tear jerker!

James Patterson is one of my favorite authors, I'm not a big fan of his romance novels but, this one was really great. I also recommend it to teens/tweens.

This was not the type of book that I expected from James Patterson. I prefer the ones that he writes on his own. This one was written with Emily Raymond.

The deceription of their journey was enjoyable but you knew how it was going to end so it was vey sad.
