Gr 9 Up—This follow-up to 99 Days is the continuation of Molly Barlow's relationship saga. Picking up after her freshman year in college, this is an engaging novel that does not entirely stand alone. Molly has spent much of the past year with Ian, who has helped her to become a calmer, more stable version of herself. Now she and Ian are off on a romantic vacation together. While exploring London, they run into Molly's ex, Gabe, and his new girlfriend. Gabe is the reason for Molly's fractured relationship with her hometown, the reason for her heartache, and the reason for the abortion she had at the beginning of the school year. When Ian invites Gabe and Sadie to join them for their trip to Ireland, Molly and Gabe find themselves thrown together and trying to keep their past a secret. Cotugno admirably fills readers in on the events of the previous novel without simply providing a synopsis in chapter one, but teens who have read 99 Days will likely be more satisfied than those who are not familiar with the complex relationships among Molly, Gabe, and his family. Some humor makes the serious topics more easily digested. VERDICT With realistic depictions of complicated, imperfect personalities, this book will be enjoyed by fans of Cotugno's previous novels and by readers of Sarah Dessen and E. Lockhart.—Karen Brooks, Gig Harbor Pierce County Library, WA

Mainly, I think this book needed to be longer. The emotions didn't build realistically because the whole thing basically spans one week. It didn't have the intensity of the first book. I also think the book focused a lot on boring, mundane events that didn't add anything to the main storyline (the romance) and I guess that leads into my main complaint, that this book didn't have enough Gabe in it.
For a book that basically centers around a romance, we don't get a whole lot of the two of them together. I would bet that the main reason many people pick this up is to see the fate of Molly and Gabe as a couple, but then half the pages of an already short book are spent with characters that I frankly couldn't care less about. So my recommendation would be that this book is definitely worthwhile if you loved the first book, as I did, but will be disappointing if you expect too much romance. Because it focuses more on a wide range of characters.
Oh, and it used the word "emphatically" so many times that I wanted to scream.
I'm obsessed with Katie's writing style. 99 Days was the first book I ever read of hers and I loved it so much but I felt like something was missing, so when I heard she was finally writing the sequel, I was beyond happy. 9 Days and 9 Nights met my expectations and then some! I spent the entire book with so many questions, but by the end, everything is answered. There are no crumby cliffhangers and I am so thankful for that but also a little bummed because of the possibility of not getting to hear anymore of Molly and Gabe's story.
