Review: In Your Room

Title: In Your Room
Author: Jordanna Fraiberg

From GoodReads: Molly and Charlie have fallen head over heels in love— even though they've never met. Molly is a fashion-conscious city girl in L.A. Charlie is an earthy, mountain-biking dude from Boulder, Colorado. Each of them has big plans with their respective friends for the summer, —until they discover that their parents decided to swap houses!

Luckily there’s no amount of homesickness that a bit of snooping can’t cure. Charlie and Molly begin crawling under beds and poking around in closets to find out a little more about each other—, and they like what they find.

Can Charlie and Molly'’s long-distance romance survive jealousy, misunderstandings —and the thousand miles between them?

MTV’s Room Raiders meets You’ve Got Mail in this sweet, old-fashioned love story for the digital age. . . .

I picked this book up because I really liked the cover. I began reading it at a wrestling tournament in between matches. I was 3/4 of the way through by the time I left the tournament. It is one of those books that is hard to put down. I thought the characters were both believable and likable. It was an interesting premise for a book and one that I have never seen before. I liked how the characters were in two different locations with their families, but managed to be connected through what they found out about each other in their rooms and by chatting online. The love story part of the book was actually my favorite part because the characters fall in love with each other based on personality more than physicality. What made the book so believable was that the characters had both strengths and flaws and the dynamics between the two characters and their families and friends were realistic. This book is Jordanna Fraiberg's debut novel and with writing this impressive, outstanding character development, and a completely original plot line... I can't wait to see what she comes up with next.
