Two friends. Ten summer trips. Their last chance to fall in love.
Twelve summers ago: Poppy and Alex meet. They hate each other and are pretty confident they'll never speak again.
Eleven summers ago: they're forced to share a ride home from college, and by the end of it, a friendship is formed. And a pact: every year, one vacation together.
Ten summers ago: Alex discovers his fear of flying on the way to Vancouver. Poppy holds his hand the whole way.
Seven summers ago: they get far too drunk and narrowly avoid getting matching tattoos in New Orleans.
Two summers ago: it all goes wrong.
This summer: Poppy asks Alex to join her on one last trip. A trip that will determine the rest of their lives.
You and Me on Vacation is a love story for fans of When Harry Met Sally and One Day. Get ready to travel the world, snort with laughter and - most of all - lose your heart to Poppy and Alex.

What happened, and why are people loving this ? There is nothing to love about these characters and I dreaded every time she went back in time to a nonexistent story. There is no plot. There is just a lot of mentioning of Alex’s puppy dog face, which sounds like the absolute opposite of attractive .
This was such a bummer.
Here are my issues:
1) The story is uninspired - it’s not creative and misses out on the premise of yearly vacations. There’s so much more that could have been built into those flashbacks, especially since the book is 361 pages long. It was actually quite a boring read.
2) There is not really any character development. There’s a lot of surface analyzing, but considering the span of over a decade, the characters feel static. And they’re not particularly likeable or memorable either.
3) While the writing flows easily, it’s not very elegant. There is a lot of dialogue, and you can tell the author spent a lot of time preparing witty exchanges between her characters. And she does pull it off. But there’s something inorganic and juvenile about it.
4) All elements considered, the book feels written for a teen audience and not adults. I cringed several times.
In summary, this book is just not inspired, doesn’t have an engaging storyline, and didn’t make me feel anything for either of the main characters. I’m just glad I’m done so I can move on to the next read.
And as a measure of comparison, I’m a millennial, and I don’t know a single female friend who would consider this book her favourite summer read or anything close to that.
