APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
In the first of this two-part series from YA author Lauren James, we encounter Katherine and Matthew and their heart-wrenching love story spanning four centuries. James skillfully dreams up dozens of different “sources” to take us from the 1700s to 2039, including diary entries, letters, text messages, newspaper clippings and fridge notes. Weaving together time travel, romance and historical fiction, The Next Together is an amazingly original take on the theme of first love.
