Summary: From the author of This Song Will Save Your Life comes a funny and relatable book about the hazards of falling for a person you haven't met yet.

Seventeen-year-old Arden Huntley is recklessly loyal. Taking care of her loved ones is what gives Arden purpose in her life and makes her feel like she matters. But she's tired of being loyal to people who don't appreciate her—including her needy best friend and her absent mom.

Arden finds comfort in a blog she stumbles upon called "Tonight the Streets Are Ours," the musings of a young New York City writer named Peter. When Peter is dumped by the girlfriend he blogs about, Arden decides to take a road trip to see him.

During one crazy night out in NYC filled with parties, dancing, and music—the type of night when anything can happen, and nearly everything does—Arden discovers that Peter isn't exactly who she thought he was. And maybe she isn't exactly who she thought she was, either.

My Thoughts: I wanted to love this one, I really did. But, I just liked it. It was just okay in my opinion.

We are introduced to Arden who has her whole life ahead of her. She’s not really sure what she wants to do yet. She has dreams and goals but she’s not 100% on anything yet. She has an amazing boyfriend who she adores but just doesn’t feel “right” for her. She also has a crazy best friend who seems to get her into trouble a lot.

Arden finds a blog about a boy named Peter. Peter seems sincere and caring and he seems like someone Arden can admire and be more like.

Well, one day Arden isn’t having the best day so she decides to go to NYC to meet said blogger Peter. She finds him pretty easy really. Yes, she knows the basic information I guess, but it was just tooo easy!!! haha! At first Peter seems so caring and realistic and sincere and everything she thought he would be. She spends the course of the night getting to really “know” him.

But things aren’t always what they seem and Arden realizes nobody is perfect.

I really liked Bianca for some reason. She at least seemed to tell mostly the truth and was upfront to Arden. And, I liked Arden but I feel as though she was easily blinded.

I loved that she just up and went to NYC. I loved that she got in her old beat up car and just drove.  But I never really connected to the story and the characters as much as I hoped. I didn’t really liked her boyfriend or Peter very much.

Overall: This one was still a cute fun read. It was light and a fun read for a summer day. It just wasn’t my favorite read of the summer! I’ll continue to read more by Sales and see if there is a book I like more!

Cover: Like it! Its so bright and colorful and I love it!
