Two Like Me and You Chad Gibbs

Description

Edwin Green's ex-girlfriend is famous. Like cover-of-every-tabloid-in-the-grocery-store-line famous. She dumped Edwin one year ago, and in hopes of winning her back he’s spent the last twelve months trying to become famous himself ... it hasn't gone well.

But when a history class assignment pairs Edwin with Parker Haddaway, the terrifying new girl at school, she introduces him to Garland Lenox, a nursing-home-bound World War II veteran who will change Edwin’s life forever.

The three escape to France, in search of Garland's long-lost love, and as word of their adventure spreads they become media darlings. But as things unravel, they also become the focus of French authorities. It’s a race against time. Who will find love, and who will only find more heartache?

This book had me hooked from the very start! The characters were so real (as a high school teacher I see versions of Edwin and Parker everyday), and their antics and adventures kept me enthralled. I also really appreciated all the research that went into the little details of the story, and Gibbs' voice is HILARIOUS - from the chapter titles to the dialogue. I'm so hoping for this to be a series - or at least a sequel - I need more Edwin and Parker in my life!! Also, this is definitely a book I could get my students to read, and that is saying a lot!

Wow, thanks so much for the kind review Kelsey! I think that's two requests for a sequel now ... *opens word document and types "Episode II: Sadie Strikes Back"* :-)

In the words of a famous Weasley, “Bloody brilliant!”
A page turning tale that ignites the imagination. Witty. Poignant. Insightful. A cracking read.

At ten percent through this book I got the bright idea to take note of the parts I loved so I could highlight them in a critique. At twenty percent I nixed that idea because I was highlighting the entire book. It’s hilarious and the wit refreshingly smart. I flipped out over all of the trivia and musical references, not only because they were there, but because they never seemed contrived. The characters are authentic and smart, they never become caricatures of teens which I see in a lot of ya. Just when you think the plot is outlandish, you’ve got Edwin green, being relatable and real. From Nate dogg to naughty by nature to new coke, I adored all of the pop culture references and ultimately the entire arc of today’s insta-fame social media trend. If the authors bio didn’t say so, I’d never think this was an unpublished first novel. It’s ridiculously well crafted, the pacing is perfect and there is real character growth. By the end, we come full circle, but our hero is changed because of this grand adventure. The author knows how to plot a solid book. As for the swoon? It touches on different forms of love and stays funny and utterly charming throughout. Two Like Me and You absolutely deserves to be published and enjoyed by many; whatever happens with it, I hope the author writes another book.

Kris and/or Jessie, I'm printing this comment so I can look at it on bad days, and good days, and every day really. Thanks so much for the very kind words. (oh, and I'm loving The Fever so far!)
