I'd never read any David Levithan books before, so this was my first and I will be looking for more! It was a quick, easy read. I managed it in a single afternoon. A great travel story about the reconnection between two brothers who have drifted apart, not because of any great rift or epic argument, but mostly just because of life and growing up. That really resonates with me, as it would for many people, I would imagine. My husband and I both have brothers (the age gap between my husband and his brother is large, similar to the gap between Danny and Elijah), and Levithan is spot-on when he writes about the evolution of the relationship between Elijah and Danny--the closeness in childhood, the tension during adolescence, the way life gets in the way as you age. I also loved the setting (Italy!). I would have liked the book to be longer, but that's just because I enjoyed the writing and the characters so much.
Read it! And then share it with your brother/sister/best friend!

Never did figure out where their lives started diverging or what helped them come back together. Not worth the time I spent on it I guess.

I had spent so long searching for this book because David Levithan is one of my favorite authors. Then finally Amazon was selling it so I jumped on the opportunity to purchase it! The book is a must read and really would appeal to a teenager with a close brother and those who love road-trip books (John Green fans especially). The only problems I had (and have had with Amazon in the past) is that the books are in a odd quality. They're a little dirty and maybe crinkled at the edges. Either terrible shipping quality or just lots of moving around in the warehouse. The physical book may not be appealing but it's what's in the content, right?

Brilliant writing, engrossing story. Highly recommended.
Kieel
This book had all of the characteristics of a Levithan novel; chracters that you could relate to, emotional problems that one could understand, and deeper thoughts that one might never have thought of before.
It wasn't funny like the summary of the book had claimed, but it was a book worth reading if only because it was one that made you think and one that will probably be remembered
Malaris
This is a great, light read! I thoroughly enjoyed it!

My David Levithan obsession continues! After reading and adoring Every Day, I went out and bought four more David Levithan books, Are We There Yet? being one that really intrigued me. Much is made of the relationships between sisters, but I've certainly not read many books about the relationships between brothers. And never having been a brother myself (but having three of them), I wasn't quite sure what to expect.

Born seven years apart, Danny and Elijah are complete opposites - Danny is a workaholic advertising guru and Elijah is a high school student who is more interested in chilling out and getting stoned than really being engaged with the world. And their relationship is incredibly strained - they have very little in common and are sent on holiday together by their parents but aren't really interested in spending any time together.

I found both of them frustrating, but Elijah in particular was quite likable, despite his pretty laid-back attitude towards life. I do wish there had been more about Julia's past as I found it quite hard to understand her behaviour, which wasn't really wierd but rather quite random. What I did like though was that there wasn't a huge focus on the relationships between Julie and the brothers, instead it was more of a hint of what could have been.

Although the relationship between the brothers changes during the course of their journey, I found it quite hard to pinpoint exactly when it evolved, which is both a positive and a negative - a positive because there's nothing worse than the blatant 'let's love each other now' moment, and a negative in that I didn't really understand why their relationship changed and they became closer.

The setting of Are We There Yet? immediately grabbed me - Italy is one of those countries that is right up there on my Must Travel list, and through the course of the book Danny and Elijah travel through Venice, Florence and Rome, and their experiences in the three cities are very different but also very similar.

Overall I did enjoy Are We There Yet? - it was a quick, fun read and although I didn't really get everything that I'd hoped for, I loved that it was about the relationship between brothers, and there was more than enough travel references to satisfy my travel bug.
A pair of brothers, one in high school and one in his early twenties, are tricked by their parents into taking an Italian vacation together. Elijah and Danny couldn’t be any more different, and it’s not just because there are seven years between them. Elijah, a dreamer who lives solely in the moment, is baffled by Danny, a straitlaced ad executive. As their travels progress, though, they are able to find a bit of common ground and end their trip accepting of their differences.

If you’re new here — or if you forgot — I love David Levithan. Love. Him. It’s not about the plot, or even about the characters…it’s about the language. I can’t seem to get enough of his poetic prose and find myself re-reading most of his books at least once. (The only exception so far is Love Is the Higher Law, which I found to be just average.) This wasn’t one of my favorites by him, but it’s still a beautiful, above-average YA novel. I’d say it’s worth checking out.
