Description

In this romantic dramedy from the author of Alex, Approximately, a teen girl's way-too-ordinary life is driven off the beaten path when she's abandoned in the wilderness with her worst adversary--the boy who broke her heart. Ever since last year's homecoming dance, best friends-turned-best enemies Zorie and Lennon have made an art of avoiding each other. It doesn't hurt that their families are the modern day, Californian version of the Montagues and Capulets. But when a group camping trip goes south, Zorie and Lennon find themselves stranded in the wilderness. Alone. Together. What could go wrong? With no one but each other for company, Zorie and Lennon have no choice but to hash out their issues via witty jabs and insults as they try to make their way to safety. But fighting each other while also fighting off the forces of nature makes getting out of the woods in one piece less and less likely. And as the two travel deeper into Northern California's rugged backcountry, secrets and hidden feelings surface. But can Zorie and Lennon's rekindled connection survive out in the real world? Or was it just a result of the fresh forest air and the magic of the twinkling stars?

Review quote

Once upon a time, Zorie and Lennon were best friends. Sure, things weren't great with their families--Lennon's two moms opened up a sex shop next door to Zorie's dad and stepmom's massage and acupuncture wellness clinic, and her dad is convinced that's why business is dropping--but that never used to matter. Now, for reasons neither one of them really understands, Zorie and Lennon are practically mortal enemies. There's no sign of things changing anytime soon, until a group camping trip gone wrong ends with Zorie and Lennon stranded in the Northern California wilderness together. Thankfully, Lennon has a few wilderness survival skills up his sleeve, but even here, secrets have a way of coming out--if Lennon and Zorie don't kill each other, they may just make it out of this alive. Bennett (Alex, Approximately, 2017) nails Lennon and Zorie's will-they-won't-they dynamic, and the California backcountry offers a striking, high-stakes backdrop. A layered adventure-love story that's as much about the families we have and the families we make ourselves as it is about romance. -- Maggie Reagan--Booklist "Feb 15, 2018 "
