Politically passionate 18 year old Meg meets a jaded 18 year old Colby through her job calling strangers to encourage voter registration. They're both dealing with family issues and decisions about their next steps and their problems are totally believable. This is YA so of course they develop a relationship, and you'll love their banter about the things that matter to them. ( )

Still coming to terms with her parents’ divorce, Meg makes sure to have everything else in her Philadelphia suburban life planned to perfection. Colby is stuck in rural Ohio grieving his late father, and has no plans other than avoiding more disappointment in life. But when Meg is connected to Colby at her voter registration call center job, Colby’s aloofness and Meg’s passion for politics spark some heated conversations that lead to a long-distance friendship that slowly leads to more.

You Say It First was pretty decent. Colby and Meg were two completely different people. I didn’t find either of them particularly likeable, but their differences made their friendship interesting. However, after a while it seemed like all they did was argue. Yes, they do challenge each other, but the arguments were kinda sloppy and immature. Most of the side characters weren’t exactly the voice of reason for either of them, so they both tend to look out for themselves and take out their frustrations on each other. And seeing as they’re both dealing with family hardships, it’s understandable that they’d need an outlet for that tension, but they were much too defensive of their own shortcomings.

I thought the plot was written well enough. I ended up reading about three quarters of the book in less than a day! It’s not your typical long distance relationship where they accidentally bump into each other at the worst possible moment. In fact, what I appreciated most about this story was that it didn’t have the cliche face-to-face meeting where one of them is unaware they’ve even met. It was refreshing to see such a casual first encounter. I also loved the details of Meg and Colby’s backstories. They both had past family troubles, and dealt with the repercussions in the present. Meg was seeing unpleasant changes in her mother and Colby was still having nightmares of his father’s suicide.

This was a book that I really had to take the time to remember what I had just read. In other words, I found it a bit forgettable. Basically it was just heated phone arguments that lead to affectionate but still heated phone arguments. There was character development, but it happened too quickly toward the end. Kinda like a snap-your-fingers-and-they-get-it type. So I gave it 3-3.5 stars. It’s good, but not great. A good teen romance to read when you’re bored. ( )

I buy a lot of books. Many come and I give them a quick look, planning to read them later. Others, I open, put the world on hold and dive in. This is one of those books. Meg and Colby have almost nothing in common...Until they start talking on the phone. Their meeting was one of those magical by chance things. She, calling from her job as a volunteer on a voter registration project, he, picking up the phone and reacting when she asks to speak to his dad, dead by suicide nearly a year before.
That could easily have been the end of their interaction, but her pushiness, coupled with his snark in response, ignites one of those sparks everyone hopes for in life. What ensues is rough, uneven and almost gets extinguished numerous times, but perseveres until both of them are jolted out of their ruts and toward each other. A very satisfying story and a book that met the expectation i had when I opened the cover. ( )
