BOOK REVIEW: In Real Life by Jessica Love


Hannah Cho and Nick Cooper have been best friends since 8th grade. They talk for hours on the phone, regularly shower each other with presents, and know everything there is to know about one another. 

There's just one problem: Hannah and Nick have never actually met.

Hannah has spent her entire life doing what she's supposed to, but when her senior year spring break plans get ruined by a rule-breaker, she decides to break a rule or two herself. She impulsively decides to road trip to Las Vegas, her older sister and BFF in tow, to surprise Nick and finally declare her more-than-friend feelings for him.

Hannah's surprise romantic gesture backfires when she gets to Vegas and finds out that Nick has been keeping some major secrets. Hannah knows the real Nick can't be that different from the online Nick she knows and loves, but now she only has night in Sin City to figure out what her feelings for Nick really are, all while discovering how life can change when you break the rules every now and then.

REVIEW BY: Arianna, age 12 years, 11 months


This book was wonderful!

My favorite character is Alex because even though he can be a horrible brother, he also helps Hannah. I think this is very sweet and shows just how much he loves his brother. 

My favorite part is when Hannah and Grace ride the roller coaster. Grace throws away her prized possession and Hannah finally faces her fears. They are in control of their lives and being brave. They let go of everything.

I recommend this book for anyone who likes romance, family, and the crazy city of Las Vegas.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 14 and up. 

This book's publishing date is March 1, 2016.
