Book Review - The Wonder of Us

About the Book
Riya and Abby are:
Best friends.
Complete opposites.
Living on different continents.
Currently mad at each other.
About to travel around Europe.

Riya moved to Berlin, Germany, with her family for junior year, while Abby stayed behind in their small California town. They thought it would be easy to keep up their friendship-it's only a year and they've been best friends since preschool. But instead, they ended up fighting and not being there for the other. So Riya proposes an epic adventure to fix their friendship. Two weeks, six countries, unimaginable fun. But two small catches:

They haven't talked in weeks.
They've both been keeping secrets.

Can Riya and Abby find their way back to each other among lush countrysides and dazzling cities, or does growing up mean growing apart?

My Take on the Book
This is definitely a coming of age story that I felt was very well written. I remember back to the ages that these characters are and the importance of friendship, but also at the challenges of life moving forward and people changing. This book captures this feeling for me and the author has done a wonderful job at making you want to continue to read from beginning to end to see what will happen to these characters and their relationship. The characters are down-to-earth and as a reader you can definitely relate to the journey that each is on. The book captures the magic of friendship and I am appreciative of that.
