You Can Go Your Own Way
by Eric Smith
Published by Inkyard Press
Released on November 2nd, 2021
YOUNG ADULT FICTION—Coming-of-age, Contemporary, Romance

No one ever said love would be easy…but did they mention it would be freezing?

Adam Stillwater is in over his head. At least, that’s what his best friend would say. And his mom. And the guy who runs the hardware store down the street. But this pinball arcade is the only piece of his dad that Adam has left, and he’s determined to protect it from Philadelphia’s newest tech mogul, who wants to turn it into another one of his cold, lifeless gaming cafés.

Whitney Mitchell doesn’t know how she got here. Her parents split up. She lost all her friends. Her boyfriend dumped her. And now she’s spending her senior year running social media for her dad’s chain of super successful gaming cafés—which mostly consists of trading insults with that decrepit old pinball arcade across town.

But when a huge snowstorm hits, Adam and Whitney suddenly find themselves trapped inside the arcade. Cut off from their families, their worlds, and their responsibilities, the tension between them seems to melt away, leaving something else in its place. But what happens when the storm stops?

As a girl from Philly, after reading You Can Go Your Own Way, I needed to take a trip down to Old City and visit the Franklin Fountain for some ice cream! I just wish the pinball parlor was there to visit as well. Loved this enemies to lovers tale set in my favorite city!

I give this book 4 Sips
