In Your Room


Molly and Charlie have fallen head over heels in love—even though they’ve never met Molly is a fashion-conscious city girl in L.A. Charlie is an earthy, mountain-biking dude from Boulder, Colorado. Each of them has big plans with their respective friends for the summer—until they discover that their parents decided to swap houses!

Luckily there’s no amount of homesickness that a bit of snooping can’t cure. Charlie and Molly begin crawling under beds and poking around in closets to find out a little more about each other—and they like what they find.

Can Charlie and Molly’s long-distance romance survive jealousy, misunderstandings—and the thousand miles between them?
I was excited to read this book. I hadn't heard much about it and I had just stumbled across the author's page one day, but I knew it was definitely my type of book. The summer romance, though not your typical one, is sweet, fun, and lighthearted with a few twists and turns. The idea that families switch homes for a summer was mind boggling to me but then the two teenagers from the family fall for each other, just too perfect!
I think you have all gotten by now I am a sucker for romance, and this book was no exception to that. Though this one wasn't typical in any way, which just drew me in even more. The characters, mainly Charlie and Molly, were so different yet so alike I just had to giggle aloud at some of the things that happened, were said, or were thought.
The book followed the typical layout, all is good and then it goes downhill for a bit and then ends with the butterflies all over again. But it worked for this book and made it an easy read that just left you with a smile. Jordanna Fraiberg did an excellent job weaving these two stories into one and I can not wait to read more from her.
