Meet Vivi and Jonah: A girl and a boy whose love has the power save or destroy them.

Vivi and Jonah couldn't be more different. Vivi craves anything joyful or beautiful that life can offer. Jonah has been burdened by responsibility for his family ever since his father died. As summer begins, Jonah resigns himself to another season of getting by. Then Vivi arrives, and suddenly life seems brighter and better. Jonah is the perfect project for Vivi, and things finally feel right for Jonah. Their love is the answer to everything. But soon Vivi's zest for life falters, as her adventurousness becomes true danger-seeking. Jonah tries to keep her safe, but there's something important Vivi hasn't told him.
As most of you know neither of us are great fans of Contemporary YA but from time to time we do read them and we even have some cute favorites.

This book has a good average on Goodreads and reviews seem solid so we were wondering... did anyone read it? Did you like it? The synopsis seems a bit like The Last Song in terms of love component and I admit I loved that book (also the movie) xD

I believe the book was (maybe still is?) available on NetGalley. What do you think? Are you fans of Contemporary YA?

Are you excited about When We Collided?
