      ~4.25~But Maps wasn't worried. Math came easily to him like girls to Adam Levine.You can't NOT love Maps. Mark my words. Maps, in all his 16-year-old geeky glory, will conquer the world. When Maps' bestie and side kick, Benji, moves a block away, Maps is devestated. He promises to ignore whomever moves in next door. But Maps isn't prepared for Lane, Mr. All-American Baseball, he of the gapped teeth, pear-green eyes, and sunny blonde hair, and his little sister, Princess Madame Sprinkle (aka, Bab [...]

      I have this weird habit of buying a book which I think is great and keeping it on my reading device unopened and unread until I feel like it’s the absolute right moment to read it. I’ve had Maps on my reading device since early this year. Today felt like the right moment to read it. And well, mostly because Diamonds is already out and I badly want to get my hands on it.Thank God I wasn’t wrong about this book. It really is beautiful! The perfect blend of light, sweet, and hilarious that le [...]

      Just. Too. Adorably. Freakin'. Cute. Mattie, aka "Maps," is a bit of a geeky, blurting drama queen, who's always been too involved with his scientific 'experiments' (term used very loosely) to ever notice either girls or boys.But when his world ends, i.e. his best friend moves an entire block down the street, a new family moves into Benji's old house and Maps begins to notice a lot.Namely the muscular, blond, baseball All-Star, Lane, with the pear-green eyes and gapped front teeth, who Maps vows [...]

      What a fun, quirky, sweet YA book! Maps is a teen boy, a junior in high-school who has so far had no interest in romance. What he has been fascinated with is, well, everything else. Maps is probably an Aspergers kid - bright, quirky, obsessive in his focus when performing an experiment, be it how ketchup dries on feathers, or observing two frogs in the bathtub. He sometimes feels younger than his chronological age, in ways that fit Aspergers. He has poor interpersonal skills, because his empathy [...]

      Nash Summers burst into my periphery last year. I love her writing, I love her characters, and I love the stories that she wants to tell readers. There is something fresh and unique and touching coming from her words that I couldn’t help making her one of my favorite new-to-me authors of 2014.Maps reminded me slightly of her other young adult work, Outshine the Stars, because it has similarity of how one person could learn and be better because of his feeling and being loved by another young m [...]

      I am so lucky! You know why? Because I waited so long to read this, I got to read the sequel immediately afterward. I didn't have to wait more than 5 seconds for it to load. In some aspects this is a fairly standard and adorable YA high school romance. Except for Maps. Maps isn't standard. Maps is one of the most refreshing and original MCs in M/M - maybe the most refreshing and original. It was an absolute delight to be inside his head. Thank you, Trix, for telling me I HAD TO READ THIS. You we [...]

      4+ stars*sigh* I'll be right over here in a puddle if anyone needs me. This adorable YA story just melted my heart and the rest of me in the process. Nash Summers has created a quirky character, Maps, that should annoy you to no end but instead you just want to wrap him up and take him home with you. He's a science geek and he's socially clueless but funny and adorable at the same time. Lane is just as lovable but he's the strong, mostly quiet, jock. He's also a big teddy bear with a romantic si [...]

      "If you ever get lost, just follow the lane, and you’ll find your way home."I shouldn't have liked this because:-Young Adult (very young).-No steam (not at all).-Tentative HFN (provided that a kiss counts as a HFN).I didn't just like it. I loved it!Life isn't going as planned for geeky, blurty, cute as hell, Maps. His best friend is leaving the house next door, and moves a whole block away!"Well, that’s it, then. My life is over. This is the end, the finale, the bittersweet conclusion. The c [...]

      Cute!Like any other young adult story? Maybe, but that doesn't mean I don't appreciate the laughs and the itching for pinching Maps' and Lane's cheeks.For now this is the only word I can find. And funny, of course. Let's not forget that. I liked his nonchalant behavior towards Lane, for whom he cares nothing about. Not at all. Right?Denial is one of the typical reactions, as we all know.Lane is showed as not a very bright guy but I don't think that's fair, I think he was more than okay and he is [...]

      DudeI might have to cheat on my cover lover: for this cover. I wonder how he feels about threesomes?

      Nash Summers has become one of my favorite authors (favorite people too!) so it's no surprise this story was fantabulous. Maps is hilariously fun. He embraces his awkwardness and is always looking for another rad experiment to try. He just didn't expect the cursed new neighbor to be his next research project. Lane is patient, kind, and the cute new boy next door.And together they create sparks. Loved the writing. Loved the secondary characters. Loved the sweet story. Double thumbs up! *4 ohhh-my [...]

      That was a funny, sweet read. Maps is a completely quirky boy and I found myself laughing quite a bit of the way through this, not only at the things he does but also at his observations.I loved Lane's little sister too - usually young kids are a bit hit and miss for me but I liked her - she would blurt things out at inappropriate times, which caused some embarrassment to everyone else (mainly Maps) and ran a bit wild.The "romance" was very sweet and innocent, and Maps was quite oblivious until [...]

      Review very soon! Nash Summers - now there is an author to burst onto the scenes in 2014. With several short stories and one full length novel under her belt this is an author who is amazingly versatile. Managing to write both short fluff filled stories and novels full of grit, grime and guts and do both wonderfully well, this is an author not to be sneezed at.Maps - quirky, quirky characters and some really funny situations, this story had me chuckling like an idiot while I read it. Literally L [...]

He recognized and appreciated Maps' unique self, and knew how special he was.Maps and Benji, togetherwhat a sweet beginning to a beautiful love story.

    15. Elsa Bravante on said:

      Fantástico. La historia de cómo se conocen Maps y Lane, dos chicos de 16 años que empiezan a conocer su sexualidad, contada de forma muy divertida, sin sexo y sin la tristeza que algunas veces rodea a los libros de este tipo.Es muy difícil hacer reir y ha habido ocasiones que he llorado de la risa.Un buen rato asegurado.

    16. Makhda on said:

      OMG. This is so ADORABLE. I can't thank you enough to Nash Summers for giving me this opportunity. Thank you, Nash. :))Maps and Lane is what you called mismatched couple. Maps was a geek, a nerd. You name it. He had a lot of ideas running through his head. While Lane was a jock, gentle giant, bad at math, with his gapped teeth and ken-doll hair. They did had a wrong first impression. But don't worry, Maps did that all the time. They're so different. But they're perfect in their own way. *sigh* * [...]

      Lazy Sunday morning re-read! Ahh Maps and Lane, I couldn't adore you more. --------This is a perfect gem of a book!!! Quirky, kinda dorky 16-year old gets turned upside-down over the gap-toothed baseball-loving new boy next door. It's short, but it's sweet. For sure it goes to my re-read pile.

    18. Amy on said:

      Absolutely adorable! I loved Maps. Like seriously loved him and his quirky personality. This reminded me of a John Hughes movie loveable geek gets the handsome jock. So cute!

      Un YA cortito y absolutamente recomendable si te apetece pasar un buen rato. Maps es Maps, pero el que me ha robado el corazón ha sido Lane ♡

    20. Therese on said:

      *4.5*This was very easy to enjoy, despite being a bit chaste. Despite being very short, all characters felt real. Or “real”, heh, I’m not sure if that is the right word. They are all very special, to say the least. Most special of all is Maps, he is a strange, quirky specimen of a teenager. Kind of like a mix between Adrian Mole and Fielding Monroe. I loved the fact that he was so oblivious to everything except his own, internal world. Reading Lane’s signals through Maps’s thoughts was [...]

    21. Arch Bala on said:

      Thank goodness for feeds! This book just totally made my day!Maps is just beyond adorable! His character is perfection! There’s no way not to love Maps! Maps (the book and the character) came before Rust (Fawn) and their characterization resemble such charm that you’d most likely not forget for a long period of time. What a beautiful, fun and quirky character!I just loved the easy vibe of the story. I loved that Maps has Benji as his bestfriend. I loved that Maps’ parents are super-cool! [...]

    22. Anke on said:

      So, I started reading this quite some time ago and couldn't get into it. Didn't find it funny, Maps was such an absurd character, I barely made it up to the feather-in-ketchup-experiment :)Today finally I got back to it again and imagine my surprise - suddenly I couldn't stop reading. What an endearing guy, with his unusual view of the world around him! Yes, I liked it a lot.

    23. Suki Fleet on said:

      Loved it. I have a weakness for quirky characters and I smiled my way through this, loving all of Maps little idiosyncrasies.And Lane's last words were perfect <3Recommended!

    24. Adrienne -kocham czytać- on said:

      Well, shit. That started out with me unsure if I liked Maps, quickly transitioned to me totally into the story and how it evoked naive childhood memories, and then it ended with a sweet scene that tied it all together, and made me immediately think "Five stars!" with a smile on my face.Loved this little story about first love. Accurate, quirky, cute, and I highly recommend it :)I really, really, really want to see what happens to Maps when he grows up. He is a gem, and I want more of his story. [...]

    26. Sara on said:

      This was fun. I loved Maps. No I fucking adored the hell out of Maps. He was focused and yet all over the place. From his first conversation with his best friend Benji as he is moving the dreaded few blocks away to the most awkward meet cute ever with Lane, the new boy next door. The boy was a total mess but what genius isn't? Their minds are on hyper-drive 99% of the time that either you jump on for the ride or get left behind. It's a good thing Lane is a jock and has major endurance to keep up [...]

    27. Mercedes on said:

      4.5 starsMy only problem with this book is that it's not long enough! As I read the book all I knew is that I wanted to keep reading about Maps and about Lane. Why of why did it have to end.This is just the type of YA story I want: two boys learning about who they are, minimum amount of angst, perfect dash of sweetness.
