Teen Fiction Tuesday: In Your Room

In Your Room, by Jordanna Fraiberg

Publisher: Razor Bill
Pages: 208
Reading Level: 13 and up
Enjoyment Level: medium

Another one of these random books I find while at Barnes and Noble. I wanted a quick book to read with a nice love story and I got it.

Molly and Charlie have fallen head over heels in love—even though they've never met Molly is a fashion-conscious city girl in L.A. Charlie is an earthy, mountain-biking dude from Boulder, Colorado. Each of them has big plans with their respective friends for the summer—until they discover that their parents decided to swap houses!

Luckily there's no amount of homesickness that a bit of snooping can't cure. Charlie and Molly begin crawling under beds and poking around in closets to find out a little more about each other—and they like what they find.

Can Charlie and Molly's long-distance romance survive jealousy, misunderstandings—and the thousand miles between them?

I liked that this was a different story. I hadn’t read any other books where two families switch houses and their kids fall in love. It wasn’t complicated or over-dressed; it was just cute. The author did a good job of making a weird scenario not so weird-I believed her. There were no surprises, just a simple love story and I appreciate that from time to time.

I would recommend this to anyone who likes a good love story!
