‘Four Doors Down’ by Emma Doherty


Becca McKenzie is just trying to make it through her senior year of high school. She has good friends and a gorgeous boyfriend but Ryan Jackson, the bane of her existence, keeps popping up everywhere.

She doesn’t care that they were best friends for years. She doesn’t care that their moms are close and therefore she hears more about him that she’d ever care to know. She doesn’t care that their mutual friend, Jake, keeps pushing them all to hang out together, and she especially doesn’t care that the rest of the school bows down and worships him.

Becca decided years ago that he wasn’t worth her time and nothing, NOTHING, is going to change her mind.

              When deciding which books, I was going to read for Valentine’s day, this book was one of my first choices. I read this book when I was in middle school and I remembered staying up way to late just to finish this book. Now that I’ve reread it, I still love this book but I just have different perspective on it.

            One thing that is still the same for me is that the plot is entertaining. One of the reasons I loved reading this book is that I always wanted to know what happened next. Did Becca start be nicer to Ryan? Did Ryan finally admit to Becca that he loves her? There were just so many questions that I had while reading this book and I loved how interested I was in the book.

            There were moments where I would laugh out loud and I love the feeling of having a book make me laugh. All of Ryan’s friends were funny and there were even moments where Becca’s personality just made me laugh.

            When Becca and Ryan finally got together I couldn’t be happier. It was like seeing Ross and Rachel from Friends finally get together! It

Thorny Features

            Even though I did like Becca, there were moments where she was annoying. She was so boyfriend obsessed it was annoying.

Final Thoughts

            Overall, I rate this book a 3.5 out of 5. This book is still so sweet and I’m a sucker for childhood love! I definitely recommend reading this book, its perfect for Valentine’s day and its worth reading. There’s a second book but I don’t think I’m going to read it because I don’t want anything to mess up the perfect image I have of Becca and Ryan. I hope you’ve enjoyed this post, you’ve just been reviewed.
