My Life Next Door – Huntley Fitzpatrick – REVIEW


I received this from NetGalley in return for an honest review. As always this will be a NON spoiler review, because who likes being spoiled? Not me!

This book follows Samantha Reed, the daughter of a Senator, who falls for the boy next door. Jase Garrett comes from the loud and messy family next door. The Garrett family are everything that the Reed family are not. This is kind of a Romeo and Juliet style story.

I’m not gonna lie, I had high hopes! HIGH hopes! I love contemporary and this cover is gorgeous so I assumed I would love it. But I didn’t. It kind of dragged and I’m not sure why. I LOVED the Garrett family. I was so glad to see a normal loving family in a YA novel. This book is not only about young love, its about family and friendship and I really enjoyed that.

However, I didn’t much care for the characters. Some of them were horrible! Nan, Samantha’s so called ‘best friend’ was horrible and Samantha’s mother was awful!

I’m just a bit disappointed really. This was a little too over hyped for me.

3/5 stars!
