Everything We Might Have Been by Megan Walker + Janci Patterson
Everything We Might Have Been by Megan Walker + Janci Patterson is a teenage romance novel. It is told from the alternating points of view of Felix Mays, a high school junior, and Jenna Rollins, a high school senior. Felix is a preppy, cello playing, orchestra nerd with rich parents. Jenna is a party girl who is up for anything. When the two are paired up for a health project and have to talk for the first time, they realize there’s more to the other than the reputations say. An unlikely duo and some dramatic teenage romance make for quite the story.
I have mixed feelings about this book. I enjoyed reading it. I was certainly sucked in and wanted to know what was going to happen next. The story just seems a little ridiculous. It’s very much like Romeo and Juliet in that two teenagers have an overly dramatic love affair in about a week’s time. It’s fast paced and cheesy, but the most unrealistic stories are often the most enjoyable.
Explicit Content Warning – There is vulgar language, references to drug use, scenes with alcohol use and a loosely described sex scene. Nothing overly explicit, just be warned if you’re not a fan of that type of content.
Even with my qualms about the timeline, Everything We Might Have Been is an enjoyable read if you want a break from real life (and who doesn’t). I would recommend this book if you like dramatic romance or teenage drama.
