Emma and Dexter meet for the first time on the night of their graduation. Tomorrow they must go their separate ways. So where will they be on this one day next year? And the year after that? And every year that follows?

Twenty years, two people, ONE DAY.

I admit that I only read this book because, I saw the film trailer and thought it looked good. I heard it was based on a book and I always prefer to read the books before seeing the film. I’d like to say I still have not got around to watching the film. I really liked this book.

I liked seeing Emma and Dexter’s relationship through the different years. At first I didn’t like Dexter very much. He was a bit too arrogant. He didn’t treat Emma very well and he thought that he was higher up the social hierarchy than her.

You will laugh and you will cry.(Oh how I sobbed.) There were parts of this book that were hilarious and parts that were so, so heart-breaking.

In the end I thought it was quite a realistic love story. This was definitely a marmite love it or hate it book.  I hate marmite but, boy did I love this book. Hopefully, I will get around to watching the film soon.
