Seven Days of You by Cecilia Vinesse
Expected publication: March 7th 2017
Sophia has seven days left in Tokyo before she moves back to the States. Seven days to say good-bye to the electric city, her wild best friend, and the boy she’s harbored a semi-secret crush on for years. Seven perfect days…until Jamie Foster-Collins moves back to Japan and ruins everything.
Jamie and Sophia have a history of heartbreak, and the last thing Sophia wants is for him to steal her leaving thunder with his stupid arriving thunder. Yet as the week counts down, the relationships she thought were stable begin to explode around her. And Jamie is the one who helps her pick up the pieces. Sophia is forced to admit she may have misjudged Jamie, but can their seven short days of Tokyo adventures end in anything but good-bye?
Seven Days of You sounded like a super cute book and I was so excited to read it. However, this book was a hot mess.
My biggest problem with this book is the main character. She’s in high school but she acts like she’s seven years old. Everything from the way she talks to how she handles situations is shockingly immature. Not to mention how her name is Sophia but her friends call her Sofa. I found that incredibly annoying and just weird. Her relationship with her best friend was messed up and very shallow. The guys in this book are all awful and I couldn’t stand them. To be honest, I couldn’t stand any of the characters.
I was so excited that this book took place in Tokyo but nothing about Seven Days of You said Tokyo. This book could have taken place anywhere in the world because it brought nothing Tokyo to the table. It was just another YA with a boring setting. I was expecting Japanese culture but I got none.
I wish I had loved this book, I really do, but I didn’t like it at all. It was poorly written with awful characters and a disappointing setting.
