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?

YA Review My Thoughts

Seven Days of You  by Cecilia Vinesse is a young adult contemporary romance that takes place in Tokyo, Japan. I loved the setting of this book. I bet Tokyo is such a vibrant and alive city. I thought it made the perfect place for a week of crazy adventures for these friends.

I loved the way the book was set up. Sofia, or Sofa to her friends (I hated her nickname!) lives in Tokyo and goes to an American academy there while her mom is teaching at a university. But the book starts out when she only has seven days left until she leaves, and the chapters start off with countdowns until her departure. It kind of reminded me of The Night we Said Yes  by Lauren Gibaldi. I really liked the flow of the book. It is about a group of friends that all have secrets and crushes and their own drama, but the romance was actually super cute. There were some light family issues thrown in to keep things interesting and plenty of teenage group of friends drama, but overall this was a light and quick read.

It made me want to visit Tokyo. That is for sure. I have one major holdup with Seven Days of You. It is the reason I didn’t rate this one higher, but it is a major spoiler. So read on at your own risk. View Spoiler » I believe Seven Days of You is a standalone contemporary novel, but I am really really hoping that there is another book in the works because this one felt unfinished to me. I want to see more.

Bottom Line: If you are looking for a realistic contemporary book in a really cool setting, you should pick up Seven Days of You. I enjoyed this one.

About Cecilia Vinesse

I’m Cecilia Vinesse, and I wrote a book about saying good-bye to high school friends and staying out all night and the dizziness of falling in love and the deliciousness of ramen.

I was born in France but then moved to Japan. And then to the States. And then back to Japan. And then back to the States. When I was 18, I moved to New York where I was homesick for nearly seven years. After that, I got a job in a cold, snowy city in northern Japan and, from there, I headed to Scotland where I got my master’s in creative writing and lived off tea, writer tears, and Hobnobs.

I still live in the U.K. and spend most of my time writing, reading, baking, and getting emotional over Tori Amos albums. Hobbies include pretending Buffy the Vampire Slayer is real, collecting a lipstick to match every Skittle flavor, and listening to a thousand podcasts a day.

A pup named Malfi and a Renaissancist named Rachel are my favorite things in the world. That, and books. I should probably mention the books again.

    Blah… I read the spoiler, because I can’t not read them. I have no self control! lol! I don’t think I would love that ending either. Bummer! That stinks because it seems like it was really going well for you up until that point. Great review!

    This one sounds promising, I’m looking forward to reading it. Thanks for sharing!

    I totally concur with you on your spoiler. This is the type of book that I should have gone gaga for. I liked it very much, don’t get me wrong, but it did that contemporary thing that I hate. Nonetheless, I enjoyed the journey, loved Jamie, and got a fantastic tour of Tokyo.
