An extraordinary portrait of true love that will move anyone who has a first love story of their own

Axi Moore is a “good girl”: She studies hard, stays out of the spotlight, and doesn’t tell anyone how all she really wants is to run away from it all. The only person she can tell is her best friend, Robinson—who she also happens to be madly in love with.

When Axi spontaneously invites Robinson to come with her on an impulsive cross-country road trip, she breaks the rules for the first time in her life. But the adventure quickly turns from carefree to out of control after the teens find themselves on the run from the police. And when Robinson suddenly collapses, Axi has to face the truth that this trip might be his last.

A remarkably moving tale very personal to James Patterson’s own past, First Love is testament to the power of first love—and how it can change the rest of your life.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Robinson is Axi Moore’s best friend, but he is also the great secret love of her life, so when he signs on to the on-the-road adventure she has impulsively suggested, this usually tame teenager is understandably delighted. Their cross-country drive leads them and readers unexpected places but reconfirms our abiding faith in first love.” Barnes&Noble.com, editorial review
“Grab a box of tissues before sitting down to read First Love. I smiled and chuckled more than I shed tears, but the bittersweet ending was very powerful.” Harlequinjunkie.com
“James Patterson doesn’t disappoint in this romantic audiobook about first love and the adventure it brings. Narrator Lauren Fortgang complements the touching story of young love with a youthful and enthusiastic tone. Axi and Robinson are close friends who end up going on a spontaneous cross-country trip to get away from it all. As Fortgang expresses each adventurous moment with excitement, the listener can fully appreciate the connection between the young lovers. Fortgang’s passionate, fluid expression ensures a sympathetic and relatable quality in both characters as the sorrow they ultimately encounter is hauntingly revealed. Finalist for the 2015 Audie Award.” AudioFile
