A friends to lovers with just enough miscommunication not to be too frustrating.

Let's face it: we love romantic comedies, but the idea that a couple of people can meet, blunder around for a few days, or even weeks, and come out soul mates is not terribly relatable. If you agree with me here, this might be the book you've been looking for. The big moments, though cinematic, are not sudden rushes of emotion, but instead a decade of emotions suddenly rushing in. And although I would definitely categorize it as a romcom, it is also very much a coming of age story. We grow up with main characters Alex and Poppy, even as they grow up with each other. People We Meet on Vacation balances the relatable with the aspirational, the authentic with the dramatic, and it all makes you fall in love.
This book is recommended for readers 15 and older who liked the Netflix original movies Always Be My Maybe and Eurovision, or books like Fangs (Sarah Anderson) and An Abundance of Katherines (John Green).
