Review: Surviving Adam Meade

February 18, 2021


Synopsis from Goodreads: 

Seventeen-year-old Claire Collins has a plan: get into college and leave North Carolina behind. What she doesn’t have is an idea for how to get rid of the local football star and womanizer extraordinaire — Adam Meade, who she can’t even avoid (despite many efforts), because Claire’s dad is the high school football coach.

Seventeen-year-old Adam Meade never fails. He always gets what he wants… until he meets Claire, the new girl who leaves him unnerved, pissed off, and confused. But there’s something about her that he just can’t resist…

With the bite of lemon meringue pie and the sugar of sweet tea, Surviving Adam Meade is a sexy and compelling young adult novel about two strong-willed people who think they know what they want but have no idea what they need.


Surviving Adam Meade was simultaneously the longest book and the shortest book that I have read in a long time. It's a very light-hearted story about a boy and a girl that fall in love in high school. And guess what, one of them happens to be the coach's daughter and the other is the star player. It is definitely a romance cliche that can be written well at times, but sometimes it is just too cliche. This book just so happens to be the latter. 

The growth within the relationship between the characters happened too fast for my liking. It seemed like the characters barely got to know each other before they were dating.  Not only that, but I felt like the main character seemed to be unhappy in any situation she was in. When you have a main character like this, it makes the book hard to read. Along with that, the characters also did not seem like they really connected at times. 

Even though there were some problems with the book, I still believe the book was a fun light read. It gave you a story of two teenagers who were in love. It was a book that you could read without too much thought in a day or two. So if you want a light-hearted and quick read, then this may be for you. 

I give it...
