Emmy and Oliver

By: Robin Benway
Location: Fic Ben
Genre: Young Adult Contemporary

John Green or Sarah Dessen Fans- this one is for you

The title screams a romance-dominated story, I would say it's anything but that. Sure, there is adorable romance... but at it's core, Benway's story is one about friendship, growing up, making your own path in life, and more importantly, family.  "Melanie"
"Sometimes love isn't something you say, it's something you do."

“Could you please stop dripping your sarcasm all over my car’s interior?”  

Oliver's absence split us wide open, dividing our neighborhood along a fault line strong enough to cause an earthquake. An earthquake would have been better. At least during an earthquake, you understand why you're shaking. 
Emmy and Oliver were going to be best friends forever, or maybe even more, before their futures were ripped apart. But now Oliver is back, and he's not the skinny boy-next-door that used to be Emmy's best friend. Now he's the boy who got kidnapped. A stranger - a totally hot stranger! - with a whole history that Emmy knows nothing about. 
But is their story still meant to be? Or are they like the pieces of two different puzzles - impossible to fit together?
