Sophia has seven days left in Tokyo before she moves back to the States. Seven days to say good-bye to the electric city, her wild best friend, and the boy she’s harbored a semi-secret crush on for years. Seven perfect days…until Jamie Foster-Collins moves back to Japan and ruins everything.

Jamie and Sophia have a history of heartbreak, and the last thing Sophia wants is for him to steal her leaving thunder with his stupid arriving thunder. Yet as the week counts down, the relationships she thought were stable begin to explode around her. And Jamie is the one who helps her pick up the pieces. Sophia is forced to admit she may have misjudged Jamie, but can their seven short days of Tokyo adventures end in anything but good-bye?

I have always been intrigued by Tokyo and this book brought the city to life, fantastic visual descriptions made all the sights and sounds of the book ring true to real life.

The simplistic details of each characters made them easier to identify with. Each was flawed in their own way, just as real people are. By the end of the book Sophia’s friends were ones that I could easily relate to, each on different levels. It is rare that an author crafts characters that each have redeeming qualities. This was the first time I experienced a love for each character and it was refreshing. None of the typical good vs. bad.

I loved the premise–only seven days left in Tokyo and Sophia must make every second count. A great exploration of city, culture and contemporary young adult emotions.

Great read.
