The Two of Us by Andy Jones Published: February 9, 2016 Publisher: Washington Square Press Format: via publisher Rating: 4/5 Add to Goodreads * Buy: Amazon Synopsis Anyone can fall in love. But not everyone can stay there. Fisher and Ivy have been an item for all of nineteen days. Both of them have been in relationships before, and, this time, around, they know something is different—they are meant to be together. The fact that they know little else about each other is a minor detail. But over the next year, a time in which their lives are irrevocably altered, Fisher and Ivy discover that falling in love is one thing—and staying there is an entirely different story. The Two of Us is a charming, honest, laugh-out-loud novel about life, love, and the importance of taking neither one for granted. My Thoughts I loved this unconventional love story of Fisher and Ivy who after only nineteen days together are thrown into a lifetime of emotions and circums
