Take Me Home Tonight

by Morgan Matson

Simon and Schuster Books for Young Readers, 2021

YA Contemporary Romance

Summary: Kat and Stevie go into New York City for her birthday and to see a teacher’s play. Unfortunately they lose their phones and then they lose each other.

Likes: I liked the focus on friendship. I was worried when they got seperated but even though they aren’t together their friendship still matters. But it was important for them to lose each other because there were things they needed to work out for themselves. I liked that they got to look at their own flaws and start to work through them. I also liked the romance.

Dislikes: There was a third friend going through a thriller simultaneously. It was a bit distracting and didn’t seem to add to the overall book. Although it was fun to debate whether or not the events actually happened.

Overall this is a similar sort of set up to Morgan Matson’s previous book, Save the Date, in the sense that everything that can go wrong will go wrong. (In Save the Date it was a wedding.) But I find that this one was executed better.
