Em and Dex; Dex and Em. One day, two friends, 20 years. Such a touching story of growing up and, just maybe, learning how to live. Soon to be a movie.

What a painfully slow moving book! Sick of the main character acting juvenile most of the time, evidentally for several years.

Share 20 years with friends Emma and Dex, who are shown on July 20 of each year. I absolutely adored this book and Nicholls’ extraordinary ability to show the struggles of young people over time in their careers, relationships and self-confidence. While neither of these individuals is always likeable, both are understandable and sympathetic on various levels. I came to care deeply about their story and what they meant to each other in a way I can’t think of with other books I’ve read recently. It’s disguised as a beach read, but there is so much more there as you delve in.
