Sophia has seven days left in Tokyo before she moves back to the States. Seven days to say good-bye to the electric city, her wild best friend, and the boy she’s harbored a semi-secret crush on for years. Seven perfect days…until Jamie Foster-Collins moves back to Japan and ruins everything.
Jamie and Sophia have a history of heartbreak, and the last thing Sophia wants is for him to steal her leaving thunder with his stupid arriving thunder. Yet as the week counts down, the relationships she thought were stable begin to explode around her. And Jamie is the one who helps her pick up the pieces. Sophia is forced to admit she may have misjudged Jamie, but can their seven short days of Tokyo adventures end in anything but good-bye?
This book is a story of love, family and friendship. Sophia lived in Tokyo but she has seven days before moving back to the USA. She must say goodbye to her friends, she is sad and angry, she feels alone but she loves Tokyo.
Seven days of you is a love story about Tokyo, Cecilia Vinesse give us a city tour, and you cannot fall in love with this city. It’s very interesting to see the city and I was part of the city during my reading.
Sophia is a very solitary girl, she has two best friends, Mika and David, and she cracks a little for the latter without ever having tried anything. They spend their evenings together going round the dancefloor or karakoes. I immediately felt the sickness of Sophia, she lives with her mother and sister but her father misses her and she’s sick of moving, she would like to have a stable life in a place she loves with her friends.
With the return of Jamie, Sophia realizes that the life changes and the friendships and loves are made and dismantled. I love Jamie, he’s adorable, sensitive and he knows what he wants. It doesn’t always do it in the best way but he tries at least. I had more difficulties with Sophia, I find she’s always angry, jealous and she is angry against the whole earth without ever admitting that she is a little guilty.
I liked this book for its discovery of Tokyo and also because the feelings of Jamie are so pure that it is endearing, and Sophia behaves better towards the middle of the book even if it still has moments when it irritates me . I understand her rage but I’m not sure she’s a smart way to get her out.
This book is a trip to Tokyo through the eyes of two young people who learn to love each other.
