Review: Map from Here to There

The Map from Here to There (The Start of Me and You, #2)
Paige's getting ready for her senior year in high school. She had a great time in New York City during her screenwriting course. She met great people, enjoyed living in the city, and has lots of thoughts about her future. Now she's back home waiting for Max to return from Italy while she works at the movie theater.

As senior year moves on, Paige's anxiety worsens. She's struggling to make the huge decision about college - knowing that she's talking about the rest of her life. When Max talks about applying to colleges in the same city, she freaks out. She doesn't want to be responsible for his future too.

As high school starts being about the last chances, Paige realizes that she wants everything to stay the same. She's not ready to say goodbye. She's not ready to make the big choices. Her worries and anxiety put strains on her relationships. Can she stop overthinking ever decision and start living in the moment?
My Thoughts: Another great read from Emery Lord. I was so happy to have more about these characters. I loved spending more time with these characters. I loved the writing. There were so many sentences that I re-read because they struck a chord with me. I felt terrible for Paige as she attempted to deal with her anxiety. I wanted to hug her and tell her everything was going to be ok. I loved her moments in the theater and her love for screenwriting. Big moments happen during senior year of high school and they capture big emotions.

Cover Thoughts: Adorable
