Review: So Much Closer
By: Susane Colasanti
Release Date: May 3, 2011
When Brooke's crush, Scott, moves from their suburban town to New York City, she decides to follow him there. Living with her formerly estranged dad and adapting to a new school are challenging, and things go from bad to worse when Brooke learns that Scott already has a girlfriend. But as she builds her new life, Brooke begins to discover a side of herself she never knew existed. And as she finds out, in the city that never sleeps, love can appear around any corner...
So who moves to a different location, leaves everything behind ... for a boy? Brooke did, and even though she did it for all the wrong reasons it turns out okay in the end. Brooke is in love with Scott and she just knows they belong together, but he's moving the summer before Senior year, she decides to follow him. Now this reminded me a lot of "Felicity", does anyone remember that TV show? I loved that show so much, such a great story (Felicity-Ben-Noel). Anyway, you know that saying, "be careful what you wish for" because once you get it, it may not be what you want. That's exactly how I felt about their relationship. It's a good thing that Brooke made some great friends with Sadie and John because without them she would have stayed lost. They really helped Brooke discover who she is and who she wants to be. This book was great and really a quick read. I have to say I really hope that in the literary future of the So Much Closer world, that John and Brooke really do get together and live happily every after. I've read every one of Susane Colasanti's book and this is another great one from her. Very adorable and happy warm fuzzy feelings. Can't wait for her next book which comes out next year "Keep Holding On".
