One of my friends recommended this book to me, and while I was a bit hesitant to read it, I really liked it!
Field Notes On Love follows Hugo, a boy who has been dumped by his longtime girlfriend. He’s pretty devastated but still wants to go on the train trip across America that they planned to take. There’s only one problem: most of the tickets are under the name of Margaret Campbell, his ex-girlfriend.
Across the ocean, another Margaret Campbell (Mae) reads Hugo’s post about needing a person to go across the country with. Disappointed in her rejection from film school, she could use a change of pace.
They travel together and Mae and Hugo learn more about themselves and their future.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. While the romance was very predictable, it was really sweet. Also the families of both Mae and Hugo were very interesting, and it included one of the best grandmothers that I’ve read in a while.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a sweet romance, but a warning: this book might make you cry too. If you like Jenny Han or Maurene Goo, I think you’ll like this book.
