The Rules of You and Me

The Rules of You and Me by Shana Norris

4 stars
The Rules of You and Me is a cute YA summer read by Shana Norris.  I didn’t know that this was the sequel to The Boyfriend Thief.  I thought that book was better, but this book is not bad.  I just had no idea they were connected in any way until she confesses to Zac that she paid Avery to take him off her hands.  

This book follows Hannah Cohen in her struggle to find herself after her family falls apart.  She moves to Ashville, NC for the summer to live with her aunt where she makes new friends and maybe a love interest.  But can Hannah see pasgt her mother’s rules to be her own person?

I liked this book and thought it was a refreshing, fluffy, YA read.


Hannah Cohen has always lived her life by a set of carefully constructed rules to maintain the image of perfection. But now, the rules aren’t helping control the chaos that is quickly taking over.

Opting out of spending the summer in Paris with her mom, Hannah instead heads to the mountains of North Carolina to stay with her aunt. The Blue Ridge Mountains provide a barrier between Hannah and the rest of the world, a safe haven where her secrets can be forgotten.

When Hannah crosses paths with Jude Westmore, a guy who hangs a different shirt from the tree in his front yard every day, she finds herself breaking out of the comfort of her rules and doing things she had never dared before. As the summer passes, Hannah and Jude grow closer and make up their own rules for dealing with life.

But when the secret Hannah has tried to forget is finally revealed, even the new rules can’t save her from possibly losing everything–including Jude.

This young adult romance is a standalone companion novel to The Boyfriend Thief.
