Book review: First Love by James Patterson


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. (Goodreads synopsis) 

Definitely not your typical Patterson book but worth the read. James Patterson dives into the teen fiction arena and scores a win.  The story of Axi and Robinson is a story of romance that is both beautiful and heartbreaking.  Much like real life.  

I enjoyed and was very envious of Axi and Robinson's road trip.  I wish I ad the guts to just jump in the car and see the country.  All though I don't think i'd steal any cars.  

I gave this book four out of five stars.
