If fate sent you an email, would you answer?
When teenage movie star Graham Larkin accidentally sends small town girl Ellie O'Neill an email about his pet pig, the two seventeen-year-olds strike up a witty and unforgettable correspondence, discussing everything under the sun, except for their names or backgrounds.
Then Graham finds out that Ellie's Maine hometown is the perfect location for his latest film, and he decides to take their relationship from online to in-person. But can a star as famous as Graham really start a relationship with an ordinary girl like Ellie? And why does Ellie want to avoid the media's spotlight at all costs?
Graham accidentally emails Ellie one day and they kind of hit it off...they end up emailing for months, but when Graham suddenly shows up in Ellie's hometown for his job...What will happen when they meet? And will Ellie's past stop them from falling in love?
I absolutely loved this book! This was so much fun to read. I mean I know I say books are fun to read all the time, but this book was so funny and fresh! I loved how it changed perspectives every chapter and between each chapter it had a few of their emails that they sent to each other. I only wish that there were more emails between them, but it made up for it for not being an insta-love situation. They really did get to know each other before they "fell in love".
If you love: Morgan Matson and Jenny Han's books you will love Jennifer E. Smith's books!
My favorite character: Graham, he was super funny and really real.
This was a really cute read!
Until next time guys!
