What It’s About:

Edwin Green’s ex-girlfriend is famous. We’re talking cover-of-every-tabloid-in-the-grocery-store-line famous. She dumped Edwin one year ago on what he refers to as Black Saturday, and in hopes of winning her back, he’s spent the last twelve months trying to become famous himself. It hasn’t gone well.

But when a history class assignment pairs Edwin with Parker Haddaway, the mysterious new girl at school, she introduces him to Garland Lenox, a nursing-home-bound World War II veteran who will change Edwin’s life forever. 

The three escape to France, in search of the old man’s long-lost love, and as word of their adventure spreads, they become media darlings. But when things fall apart, they also become the focus of French authorities. In a race against time, who will find love, and who will only find more heartache?

My Thoughts:

Two Like Me and You is a wonderfully refreshing read.  Author Chad Alan Gibbs takes his readers along for a wild adventure.  The unlikely trio of a big-talking senior citizen in a nursing home and two unpopular high school students creates no end of hilarity.

The odd introduction of Edwin Green provides not just his backstory, but it gives readers a real feel for this glum character. Parker Haddaway, the enigmatic new girl at school, is suspected of being an undercover cop.  Naturally, that lead this reader to wondering about what sort of crazy antics she gets into.  Add one WWII vet in search of his lost soulmate–Garland Lenox–and you’ve got the magical ingredients for a zany, madcap, YA adventure.

I thoroughly enjoyed Mr. Gibb’s writing style.  I loved all his characters. Just like Garland’s “big fish” tales, there were many far-fetched scenarios; they are too much fun to care about the need for suspension of disbelief.  Two Like Me and You is a tale of self-discovery and adventure.  While there is a bit of puppy-love, this is not a romance novel.  Teen and ‘tween readers can expect so much  fun and laughs that they won’t even notice that Mr. Gibbs has slipped in a little history to the mix.

A wonderful, chaste road trip story that is suitable for all ages.  The charming, heartfelt ending might not be a typical HEA, but it is perfect.
