Jack and Yani Love Harry Potter

Author:  Mary E. Twomey
Year:  2013
Publisher:  Createspace
Pages:  172

Goodreads Summary:
Best friends Jack and Yani do everything together. After Yani's thirtieth birthday party, however, she decides to leave town on a spontaneous vacation to visit all the sites of the young adult fiction novels she loves, hoping that when she returns, she'll have buried the secret flame she has for Jack. Forced by his friends to go on a road trip to track down Yani, Jack learns a lot about his best friend by reading the novels she's been obsessed with. From vampire hunting in Forks to searching for wizards in Florida, Jack confronts his greatest fears -that he just might love Harry Potter...and perhaps, Yani.

This book was absolutely adorable and so, so, so much fun. I totally geeked out on it. I saw my friends and myself in Yani and 100% saw us making this road trip. As a matter of fact, I was thinking of the places we'd visit if we did this. But what was even  more fun was seeing the books (and the places) from Yani's friends point-of-view. I laughed and loved every minute of that because I know that most times when I do get one of my friends to read one of my lowly YA books they come away admitting that it's "really not that bad." 

I bought this book as an ebook but definitely will order a paper copy just so I can put it on my shelf and tell people that they have to read it when they ask me about it - which is the one advantage to have paper copies of books over ebooks on shelves. I highly recommend this fun, light and easy read to all fans of YA books - especially older fans that take some ribbing from your friends for still reading YA books.
