H Nico’s crazy plan Ali sets off on a uniue adventure that is unlike anything she ever could have expectedAnd it’s through Ali’s travels through the strangers she meets and the things that they value and why they value them that Ali eventually comes to understand her father and how his life may not have been as easy and carefree as she previously thought Because just like the seemingly insignificant objects Ali collects not everything is exactly as it appears. I love road trips They are one of my favorite things to do Get your friends some snacks and some good tunes and off you go But I cannot imagine going on a road trip with an ex Life hasn t been kind to Ali lately Her and her mother are about to lose their home and her non existent father has passed away leaving them nothing but dept and an old car Ali makes the split second decision to sell the car to try to save her childhood home but she can t drive stick so she has no way to get the car up north Enter ex boyfriend Nico who offers his services for a measly 1 grand of her sale money Ali agrees because she just wants to be done with her father and the two set off What should have been an easy 5 hour trip there turns into something neither of them expected but maybe just what they neededDon t get me wrong the book was cute But it wasn t really until the end that I finally got the emotional connection that I wanted For a majority of the book I was frustrated with Ali because honestly she s not very likable and extremely irrational And for the most part Nico was kind of a dud I figured out his story early on and it was just waiting for him to finally reveal his secrets Both of them had trust issues so it was very easy to see why they didn t work out the first time The road trip itself was all right but it wasn t really what I was looking for And the whole plot with the trading up I don t know if this is a real thing because I ve never heard of it but it didn t really make sense to me but I guess it served its purpose This was my first contemporary by Brody I ve read a fantasy of hers and loved it and while it wasn t amazing I did enjoy it and would definitely read from her

Review The Geography of Lost Things

A buyer three hundred miles up the Pacific coast willing to pay enough Geography of Lost Kindle #211 money for the car to save her childhood home Ali can’t wait to get going Except Ali has no idea how to drive a stick shift But guess who doesAli’s ex boyfriend Nico And Nico has other plansHe persuades Ali that instead of selling the car they should “trade up” the items they collect on their trip to eventually reach the monetary amount Ali needs Agreeing wit. I received a digital arc from Netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewI absolutely LOVE this book It was enjoyable from beginning to end Ali is in financial trouble and is losing her childhood home if she can t come up with a hefty sum of money Her father recently passed away and has left her a 1968 firebird convertible She puts it up on Craigslist and a car collector offers than enough money for it There s just one problem She can t drive stick and her ex boyfriend can Thus begins an adventure of a lifetime which starts out at a 5 hour road trip and turns into so much I found so much of this story to be enthralling and I was zipping through the pages to see where Ali and Nico were headed next Ali is very hesitant to start the trip with her ex boyfriend because they left so much up in the air when they broke up You discover so much on their road trip including why they broke up and that they clearly still have feelings for each other Of course there s a lot to the story that could be fixed with better communication but I m not going to hold it against them There s a nice simmering tension that lasts through much of the book that doesn t disappoint Nico suggests that they begin trading up items to make the tip interesting and to see if they can get money This part is probably my favorite part of the story It s a uniue adventure and I loved seeing what they traded where they had to go and just how far it got them They run into big problems and you feel their pain right along with them The reveals make your heart crack just a little bit and you want to reach through the pages to comfort them Intertwined with the current story are flashbacks of Ali s time with her father He was not the greatest man and it s clear she was conflicted in her feelings for him with her memories It wasn t my favorite part of the story only because it detracts from the present adventure I did also find that while there was a deadline to needing money there wasn t as much of a sense of urgency as I had hoped We have one conversation from the mother in the beginning and we never hear from her again It seems odd that she never checks in on her daughter once throughout the story Ali has only one change of clothes and Nico has none but they never talk about needing other clothes They re on the road for a few days and I definitely would want to change This is nitpicking because I enjoyed everything else enough for it to earn 4 stars

    Anyone who follows my feed knows I don’t read a ton of ya books It takes a special kind of ya book to draw me in This one got my attention because it involves a road trip which I love It ended up being a cute story about two exes learning to forgive and trust each other with the big secrets in their lives I really enjoyed reading this one and hopefully I can find something similar that peeks my interest soon
