    Release date: December 19, 20173.5 stars. I absolutely adored the first half of this book! It was hilariously endearing and I was laughing so much.Jesus Bjorn Gunderson (Zeus) is a "Mexiwegian" teen who gets uprooted from Chicago and stuck in a small town where he works at his mother's cafe for nothing but tip money. He meets Rose, a Filipina piano prodigy who's his age, and starts volunteering with her at the local nursing home. His little "Puer...

    (I received an advance copy of this book for free. Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss.)This was a YA contemporary romance story, about a boy from Chicago who had just moved to a small town.I liked Zeus, and it was sweet how he looked after his little brother all the time. The storyline in this was about Zeus and his mother and younger brother moving to a small town where his mother had set up a small café. Zeus was tasked with making deliveri...

    "As I drove back to town, the sun at our backs and the windows down, I looked over to Rose, whose hair flew wildly in the wind. She stared out her window watching the trees and houses whip by .... I'd never felt happier sitting next to someone." This book was so much better than I was expecting! I wasn't expecting it to be garbage by any means, but I thought it would be a pretty standard contemporary. And it was in some ways, but there was so mu...

    Omg! I really loved this book! What a short but cute read! I thoroughly enjoyed it. It talks about first loves, following ur dreams, friendships, family first, sacrifices, etc. It’s your basic yet perfect young adult contemporary. It makes you sad but also fills you up and teaches you an important life lesson. It’s about this boy Zeus who moves to this isolate town where nothing happens and he’s sad about it. His mom opens this vegan restau...

    3.5 starsThis book was a pleasant surprise. I'm not a huge contemporary reader, but there was something enduring about this story, and it's characters, I really liked. Loved the diversity of the characters too. FULL REVIEW https://mundiemoms.blogspot.com/2018/...

    This was such a sweet and adorable story of first love, but also about friends and family, nurturing those important relationships, living for today, and holding onto the good memories. I didn't realize the title of this book was based on the Beatles' song, Here, There, and Everywhere, but I have to say, it's appropriate. That song is a sweet and beautiful declaration of love, and encompasses many of the emotions Zeus was experiencing as he fell ...

    Moving from Chicago to Buffalo Falls with his mother and younger brother Grub has not been ideal for Jesus (Zeus) Gunderson, but working as the delivery boy for his mother’s cafe over the summer ends up opening some doors. While making a delivery to Hilltop, the local retirement home, Zeus meets a pianist named Rose whom he instantly falls for and Grub meets Blackjack, a WWII vet who is more than willing to indulge him in his soldier wargame fa...

    This book was...underwhelming. Don't get me wrong, it was well-written and featured some fun secondary characters (Grub, Blackjack, Letty), but the romance/main plot - for all that it was supposed to be cute and quirky - just felt meh.

    Durango's novel was very underwhelming, especially in terms of characters. I thought Zeus was lacking in any development, and Rose was such a Mary-Sue it was unreal. Every plot point was surface-level depth, and nothing dug deep into the characters, which would have been nice since almost nothing happens plot-wise. This novel is trying to be character-driven with lackluster and bland characters, which is ultimately an unsuccessful route to take. ...

    *Complimentary review copy provided by the publisher.Here, There, Everywhere is a sweet, feel-good wholesome read. It is also a slow and predictable read. A solid and safe read which I think will enhance its appeal to a wide audience. But it is also written without risk and includes a sprinkle of moral ‘preaching’.The characters are one-dimensional, stereotypical and forgettable, which is unfortunate as the story, having no plot, is very char...

    'Here, There, Everywhere' by Julia Durango and Tyler Terrones is a creative and enjoyable read about a spectrum of ideas, from friendship to family dynamics, finding inspiration in unlikely places to first loves. Main character Zeus finds himself stuck in small town Buffalo Falls after having lived in Chicago for most of his life. His mom has opened a hippie type of cafe and he deals with being her delivery boy for the first bit of summer. Nothin...

    I want her everywhereAnd if she's beside me I know I need never careBut to love her is to need her everywhereKnowing that love is to shareEach one believing that love never diesWatching their eyes and hoping I'm always there/The Beatles/ This novel earns 4 beautiful stars from me. I really liked it. It was full of light and happiness, caring and doing the right thing. First part of the book was hilarious with all the funny introductions, awkward ...

    This was an easy, quick read, but felt like it was meant for an audience younger than YA in many ways. I didn't dislike it at all, but there was something about it that felt off to me and I couldn't give myself over to the story as completely as I really wanted to.The main character is Zeus (short for Jesus), the only Mexiwegian in the new small town he's moved to. It's summer and he's tasked with looking after his little brother and doing food d...

    Given the wealth of YA literature out there, I found Here, There, Everywhere quite mediocre. There are a lot of issues briefly addressed in the novel, however, none are tackled head on by the authors. It's difficult, because I'm not necessarily a fan of the YA novel completely shaped by one issue as they can become a bit preachy, however, to not even address these issues sat oddly.The plot was a little wishy-washy too, which is a shame because th...

    Let's just start by saying this: Durango's voice and humor are quite simply marvelous. The way that Zeus decided to word things in his mind was continually original and funny. The characters were unique, separate, and satisfyingly colorful. Grub was one of the most adorable and lovable characters I've come across in a while.So why didn't I really love this book? As per my usual, it comes down to a character (these entities are magnanimously impor...

    I probably would have never read this phenomenal book if not for the free (with a purchase of 3 books) Advanced Readers’ Copies at Saturn Booksellers. Thank you so much!!This has gotta be one of my favorite books of all time. It was a beautiful mix of romance, realistic fiction, and comedy all smashed into one amazing book. It’s by far one of the best romances I’ve ever read. I have never laughed out loud, cried, or connected as emotionally...

    Bagian Zeus yang sayang adiknya itu lucu, haru. Bagian Zeus yang pacaran bikin mual tapi lucu juga. Haha reviewernya mulai mengalami krisis nilai. Bagian jadi relawan di panti wreda juga bikin haru.Ini termasuk buku yang bolak-balik googling untuk tahu jenis lagu yang disebut di sini. Akhirnya jadi ngeh sama lagu The Beatles yang jadi judul bukunya; Here, There and Everywhere. Jadi dengerin Chopin, dan jadi suka sama Gotye ft Kimbra: Somebody I U...

    Zeus and his brother must adjust to life in a small town after living in Chicago. They are being raised by their single mom, who owns a small cafe in the town. At first, he is resentful about leaving all his friends in Chicago. However, as he meets new people and, especially, a talented young musician, he begins to appreciate his new life.

    Inoffensively dull manic-pixie-dream-girl stuff. Nothing to complain about, but I finished it two hours ago and can already barely remember the plot. Not recommended.
