about

Anna and the French Kiss meets To All the Boys I've Loved Before in this dazzling YA romance set in Tokyo.

Sophia has seven days left in Tokyo before she moves back to the States with her family. Seven days to say goodbye to the electric city, her wild best friend, and the boy she has harbored a crush on for the past four years. Seven perfect days...that is, until Jamie Foster-Collins moves back to Japan and ruins everything.

Jamie and Sophia have a history of heartbreak, and the last thing Sophia wants is for him to steal her leaving-thunder with his stupid arriving-thunder. Yet as the week counts down, Sophia is forced to admit she may have misjudged Jamie. But can their seven short days of Tokyo adventures end in anything but goodbye?

A funny and poignant debut novel filled with first kisses and second chances.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This beauty is like 2016's Anna and the French Kiss. I WANT TO GO TO JAPAN SO BADLY. After reading this precious thing by Cecilia Vinesse, I realized that like New York City, Tokyo is the city of dreams. Or in other words, the city of my dreams. It is a place that never sleeps, it's gorgeous, and the food described by Vinesse was just extraordinary. What else could we possibly want from this book? The only thing I would ask for is to have a sequel where we read this story from Jamie's perspective. Don't get me wrong, I adored Sophia's character and the class that she had—Jamie is just a heartthrob and I want to read more about him. Seven Days of You is a fast-paced story that tells the story of a girl who is about to leave everything she has ever known and move to the States. This was definitely one of my favourite reads of 2016 that I finished in a few hours because it was just THAT CAPTIVATING. I get so much wanderlust reading books because I want to travel around the whole world. One of the obvious reasons why Seven Days of You was so intriguing was because of the setting: Tokyo, Japan. It is quite rare to find YA that takes place in Asia, let alone Japan. It was so interesting reading about the city life and how the teenagers in Japan, specifically Sophia and Jamie, live. It was a huge culture shock for me, and I have come to realize that I want to be go there so badly. ANYWAY, excuse me for my excessive fangirling. I also want to be part of the book for Jamie, duh. You see, it has been like fifty years since I last put this beauty down. That was in California, six months ago. IMAGINE THAT. That's why you should expect a short review where I just am skimming over things; this was extremely delayed. As you can tell, I read this beauty while on vacation and I was so overwhelmed with how good it was. This is a short read that made me feel that I was wherever Sophia was. This is such a touching, descriptive book that made me believe in love. Occasionally, contemporary romances can be boring to the point that I felt that the objective of the author was to actually make his/her characters fall in love, though, in this case, Cecilia Vinesse mastered the art of love. This was a raw, moving story that made you feel the emotions Sophia was feeling; when she was afraid to leave the place she grew up in, you felt her fear. There is nothing better than an author writing a book like that. I loved Sophia's character for her originality. I often find chick-lit protagonists to be quite self-immersed and selfish, only for the reason that they do not want to give love a chance for various reasons. Then there are the protagonists who dealt with a difficult situation and a guy randomly pops up in the middle of their lives and they decide to leave everything and just go for the situation. Sophia was none of that; I cannot even describe her characters in words because she was just that unique. The concept too was especially unique; you will never find a book that is so beautiful and real, taking place in a matter of days. It made me feel rushed to get up and experience life to the fullest. THIS BOOK MADE ME FEEL PHILOSOPHICAL, OKAY? Little Brown made the best decision to publish this story. It's unlike anything I have ever read before.

Editorial Reviews

"Seven Days of You is a deliciously fizzy, neon-bright romance: a swoony tangle of past and future, love and friendship, and what exactly it means to be home."-Katie Cotugno, New York Times bestselling author of 99 Days
