Into the Wild

Read The Wonder of Us Online Free - Riya and Abby are:
Best friends.
Complete opposites.
Living on different continents.
Currently mad at each other.
About to travel around Europe.

Riya moved to Berlin, Germany, with her family for junior year, while Abby stayed behind in their small California town. They thought it would be easy to keep up their friendship-it's only a year and they've been best friends since preschool. But instead, they ended up fighting and not being there for the other. So Riya proposes an epic adventure to fix their friendship. Two weeks, six countries, unimaginable fun. But two small catches:

They haven't talked in weeks.
They've both been keeping secrets.

Can Riya and Abby find their way back to each other among lush countrysides and dazzling cities, or does growing up mean growing apart?

This didn't really do anything for me. I didn't care for the characters, in fact I found it difficult to differentiate between the two in the dual perspectives so that was an unnecessary element. It was just meh, disappointing overall.

I really enjoyed this book! I'm a sucker for friendship stories, especially when they center around evolving friendships, and I think Culbertson did a good job with this one. There's also the added bonus of being set in some fun European cities to sweeten the deal!

Thank you, thank you, thank you Kim Culbertson for writing a book about friendship. The Wonder of Us is a beautiful, honest story of two friends at the beginning of the end of high school and what life might look like after graduation.

2.5 stars. This was a pretty frustrating novel. The two girls were squabbling most of the time and I felt that Abby's reason for running off was absurd. You're friends will not be in close proximity to you for forever but that doesn't mean they aren't your friends. Yeah, Abby dealt with some shit...

3.5 Stars. I read this for my Teachers as Readers book club. A really nice take on a friendship. At times the girls seemed their age (17), and at other times their conversations and dialogue seemed between two much older girls. Overall it was a nice story about how friendship changes and evolves....
