Our Year in Love and Parties

By: Karen Hattrup

Two friends who have the potential to be something more.
Four nights that see them through the highest highs and the lowest lows.
One year that will change everything.


Tucker knows that relationships take work. Some are easier than others though. With his best friend, Bobby, and his mom, everything is simple and consistent. His dad, on the other hand, who is sick, still treats him like a nine-year-old. Then Erika Green comes back into his life, stirring up old feelings. A small part of him knows he shouldn’t get too attached during senior year. But a bigger part doesn’t want her to disappear again.

Erika from before the video liked to shock people with her words and bright-pink hair. Lately, she’s been holing herself up in college life and hoping that the past will stay where it belongs—in a dumpster fire. But then she reconnects with Tucker Campanelli. With him, she doesn’t have to pretend to be okay. And she can’t deny the unexplainable connection between them. And though it’s complicated, she really wants to hold on to that feeling for as long as possible.

It’s been years since Erika and Tucker worked together at the Fun Cave arcade, years since that awful senior year Erika had to endure after an inappropriate video of her with someone else’s boyfriend made the rounds.

After she and Tuc It’s been years since Erika and Tucker worked together at the Fun Cave arcade, years since that awful senior year Erika had to endure after an inappropriate video of her with someone else’s boyfriend made the rounds. She survived that year, and her freshman year of college, but feels like she is just going through the motions. After she and Tucker run into each other at an impromptu (slightly illegal) goodbye party for the Cave, the feelings they had for each other resurface. While there are sparks, nothing happens between them that night due to misunderstandings. Over the next year they run into each other again, grow closer, deal with family issues, have another misunderstanding, and then finally realize how much they care for one another, just as they have to part ways. The author nicely portrays these characters not as perfect, hip teens, but as complex, relatable individuals in whom many teens will see themselves reflected. The open ending of the novel feels realistic, yet may be disappointing for readers looking for an ending tied up neatly. There is sexual content, but it is not graphic, and is realistic for the ages of the characters. Contemporary romance readers will find much to enjoy in this novel of life, love, and the pursuit of one’s self.
