Review: Emmy & Oliver
By Robin Benway
Genre YA Contemporary
Emmy and Oliver were best friends until Oliver's dad kidnapped him. Ten years later Oliver is back. Can Emmy and Oliver be friends again or will it be something more?
Oliver disappeared from school on a Friday afternoon, way back when we were in second grade, and small things seemed really important and important things seemed too small.
I feel like this book has been on my TBR shelf forever. As it was only released in 2015, it hasn't been nearly as long as it feels but still. I was needing a light romantic read and had heard good things so I picked this one up.
It fit the bill perfectly. With romance and just a touch of issues and hurdles to get through it was just what I was looking for.
My only real problem with the book was that I felt like I'd read it before. There was nothing new, special or unique in this one but since that wasn't what I was going for I didn't mind.
So, if you're looking for a romantic, fun read give this one a go. Just don't expect any thing super deep.
Should you read it
I'd recommend this one as exactly what it is. Fluff with a dash of drama to keep things interesting.
