November 9th by Colleen Hoover
Hi, my name is Kate. I am in 11th grade. I enjoy hanging out with friends and playing soccer in my free time when I am not at school.
The book, November 9th, written by Colleen Hoover is about a girl named Fallon who gets caught in a fire at a young age and is reminded of it everyday when she looks in the mirror with a look of disgust on her face. Fallon and her father meet up at a restaurant for breakfast, the day before she is leaving to follow her dreams. While telling her father that she is pursuing her dream of acting, he doesn’t believe her or in her. In the restaurant she is surprised when a random boy adds to the conversation as her “boyfriend” telling her father how amazing she is, annoying her father even more. After her father leaves the restaurant Ben and Fallon spend the rest of the day together hitting it off after not even knowing each other an hour ago. An unfortunate goodbye comes and Ben and Fallon agree to follow the rules that they set up for each other (including, pursuing both of their dreams and dating other people) but also meeting up at the same place next year, November 9th. The next November 9th, Ben and Fallon meet up and become even closer learning how much they love each other. The same rules apply to their next visit. These visits continue every year, but with every year, their other lives continue as well, creating choices that they have to make to either continue their meetups and date after five years, or not.
I recommend November 9th if you are looking for a good romance book to read that is super fast paced. As a teenager I really enjoyed the romance because it was a young adult book. The plot of the book was super good and easy to follow. I really couldn’t put the book down, it was so good. I loved this book, I have read almost all of Colleen Hoover’s books and this one is by far my favorite.
