Book Review: With You All the Way

Genre: YA Contemporary Fiction Rating: ⭐⭐⭐

One of my favorite books from last year was The How and the Why by Cynthia Hand, so when I saw that she had another book coming out this year, I immediately added it to my TBR list. While With You All the Way wasn’t as good as The How and the Why in my opinion, it was still a cute and lighthearted read!

The book is about 16-year-old Ada, who finds her boyfriend cheating on her shortly before her family leaves for a vacation in Hawaii. Ada is convinced that her boyfriend cheated because she wasn’t ready to have sex with him, so when she catches her mother cheating on her stepdad with a work colleague, she is livid. Ada then uses her 16-year-old logic and decides that her best course of action is to have sex just to get it out of the way. Everyone else is doing it, so why shouldn’t she?

This book portrays Ada’s struggles and experiences in such a heartfelt and genuine way. While it tackles some intense themes, it is not really a dense or heavy read. It was fun reading about Ada’s life and watching her find her way back to her family. I would have liked some actual romance in the book, but it was not completely necessary.

Overall, reading about the ups and downs of a teen navigating family and relationship drama was actually pretty touching. Although there wasn’t necessarily anything in this book that made it particularly memorable, it was a cute story and a quick read. I definitely recommend it for anyone who is a fan of the YA or Contemporary genres!
