"If ever a couple was 'meant to be,' it's Tess and Gus. This is such a witty, poignant, and uplifting story of two lives crisscrossing over the years, with near miss after near miss. . . . I couldn't put it down."--Sophie Kinsella

A wryly romantic debut novel with echoes of One Day that asks, what if you just walked by the love of your life, but didn't even know it?

"TODAY IS THE FIRST DAY OF THE REST OF YOUR LIFE." Tess can't get the motto from her mother's kitchen knickknack out of her head, even though she's in Florence on an idyllic vacation before starting university in London.

Gus is also visiting Florence, on a holiday with his parents seven months after tragedy shattered their lives. Headed to medical school in London, he's trying to be a dutiful son but longs to escape and discover who he really is.

A chance meeting brings these eighteen-year-olds together for a brief moment--the first of many times their paths will crisscross as time passes and their lives diverge from those they'd envisioned. Over the course of the next sixteen years, Tess and Gus will face very different challenges and choices. Separated by distance and circumstance, the possibility of these two connecting once more seems slight.

But while fate can separate two people, it can also bring them back together again. . . .

Definitely a romantic novel, but very much a down-to-earth depiction of the many griefs so many of us live through.

I loved "Miss You," it was such an amazing story and I quickly became invested in all of the characters. I thought the ending was perfect and I would definitely recommend reading this book.

This book was recommended to me since I loved One Day so much. I only wish that the two character's lives crossed over more, the story is more about their separate lives vs. "their" lives together.

I really enjoyed this novel, which spans over a decade, and is told from the alternating view points of Tess and Gus. If you're a fan of David Nicholls' novel 'One Day', you will probably enjoy 'Miss You'.

Not as good as I imagined it would be, but maybe it was because I'd envisioned something a lot different.
