This book reminds me of a modern day When Harry Met Sally. We meet the main characters Emma and Dexter when they "hook up" on graduation night from the university. Subsequent chapters follow Emma and Dex over the course of the next 20 years always peeking in on their lives on July 15. Emma and Dex begin as newly graduated students and stumble into adulthood never quite letting go of each other and never quite pulling it together.
This book allows us to think about what happens to the ideals we each have at age 20? What happens to those who didn't have any plans at all? Where will we be in 10 years, or 20? Will your best friend always be your best friend? This book follows Emma and Dexter tackling these questions both individually and through their friendship.
Sometimes I loved the characters of Em and Dex and sometimes I disliked these characters. Some of the situations throughout the book seemed plausible and sometimes the situations seemed too far fetched. The ending was a dissapointment but no spoilers here. This book was still well worth the read and a lot of fun.
