From the New York Times bestselling author of Emergency Contact, which Rainbow Rowell called smart and funny, comes an unforgettable new romance about how social media influences relationships every day. After a year of college, Pablo is working at his local twenty-four-hour deli, selling overpriced snacks to brownstone yuppies. Hes dodging calls from the student loan office and he has no idea what his next move is. Leanna Smarts life so far has been nothing but success. Age eight: Disney Mouseketeer; Age fifteen: first #1 single on the US pop chart; Age seventeen, *tenth* #1 single; and now, at Age nineteenlife is a queasy blur of private planes, weird hotel rooms, and strangers asking for selfies on the street. When Leanna and Pab randomly meet at 4:00 a.m. in the middle of a snowstorm in Brooklyn, they both know they cant be together forever. So, they keep things on the down-low and off Instagram for as long as they can. But it takes about three seconds before the world finds out

Pablo, an aimless 20something killing time, meets a pop star at the hipster New York bodega where he works. Loved the multicultural friends and the devotion to snacks, but the romance never feels fully realized. I like how this book starts bridging the gap between YA and full-on A, because what 20 year old really knows what they‘re doing?

This book was... okay. Not great but not bad. I found a lot of complications with the main character, Pablo. The entire book he was clingy, borderline obsessive, negligent, and hypocritical. The love interest, Lee, was also hypocritical and self-obsessed.

The only character I really liked was Pablo's dad. The life lesson he gives in the end might just be a reason to read the book.

3 stars for Pablo's dad... -2 for the irritating characters.

I LOVED Emergency Contact so I couldn‘t wait to start Permanent Record. It‘s made for a great before bed read, being away from life and responsibilities has made getting some reading done a lot easier than usual. Pablo and Leanna are the cutest couple and I find myself rooting for them and their relationship. Might we get a happy ending? 💖

I met Mary HK Choi and Jonny Sun last night! They‘re both so sweet, and so cool to listen to! I didn‘t know Jonny Sun was going to be at the event so didn‘t have anything for him so sign (😭), but I was able to get both Emergency Contact and Permanent Record signed by Choi 😍

Choi‘s characterization is the perfect combination of complex and endearing. Pablo is an interesting, layered, and dynamic character with an affinity for creating unique pairings of junk food. With Lee, we get a glimpse of celebrity—how the public obsesses over them, the relentless machine of the paparazzi, and how image is everything no matter how fake. And in this artificial world, Pab and Lee's relationship is real and actually quite beautiful.

I finished my first book in a week and it feels so good!!! I have been in a little bit of a funk the last two weeks with not really wanting to read to much. But I did really enjoy this book. Next up The Testaments!
