Description

Hugo and Mae want get their lives on track. What they're not expecting to find is each other. When Hugo's long-term girlfriend Margaret Campbell breaks up with him the summer before uni, she leaves him a parting gift: the US cross-country train trip they had planned to take together. The only problem is that all the tickets are in her name - Hugo needs to find another Margaret Campbell quickly. When New Yorker Mae Campbell doesn't get into film school, her friends and family tell her she needs to take more chances. Maybe this trip with an English boy looking for someone with her name is the answer, and maybe she will get a decent film out of it too. Jennifer E. Smith's YA novel Field Notes on Love is a heart-warming love story about grabbing opportunities and trusting your instincts.

Reviews

Told from the protagonists' alternating perspectives and offering a well-rounded cast of secondary characters (especially sextuplet Hugo's siblings and Mae's feisty grandmother), this novel by Smith (Windfall) gives a contemporary twist to the tried-and-true plot of two strangers falling in love on a train. A coming-of-age story as well as a romance, it offers authentic, complementary protagonists while capturing the thrill of exploring new territory. * Publisher's Weekly * Utterly romantic -- Jenny Han, author of To All the Boys I've Loved Before
