Who Do You Love by Jennifer Weiner

Rachel Blum and Andy Landis are eight years old when they meet late one night in an ER waiting room. Born with a congenital heart defect, Rachel is a veteran of hospitals, and she's intrigued by the boy who shows up all alone with a broken arm. He tells her his name. She tells him a story. After Andy's taken back to the emergency room and Rachel's sent back to her bed, they think they'll never see each other again.

Rachel, the beloved, popular, and protected daughter of two doting parents, grows up wanting for nothing in a fancy Florida suburb. Andy grows up poor in Philadelphia with a single mom and a rare talent that will let him become one of the best runners of his generation.

Over the course of three decades, through high school and college, marriages and divorces, from the pinnacles of victory and the heartbreak of defeat, Andy and Rachel will find each other again and again, until they are finally given a chance to decide whether love can surmount difference and distance and if they've been running toward each other all along.

With honesty, wit, and clear-eyed observations about men and women, love and fate, and the truth about happy endings, Jennifer Weiner delivers two of her most memorable characters, and a love story you'll never forget. @goodreads

What is with that ending!!! I'm just going to make up the ending that I want so there.


We all know from the blurb that Rachel and Andy meet in an ER waiting room when they are only 8 years-old. What you don't know is they keep in touch over many years. I mean from like 8 until their 30's they keep in touch and even briefly have a romance or just come together here and there and say how much they love each other and so forth and so on.

I felt bad for both of their stories growing up. Andy grows up poor with a not so nice mom and a dad who is presumed dead. Let me just say that all works out for the better later on.

Rachel grows up with a heart defect, she says her heart is broken, for real :( Her mom is always worried about her and doesn't let her do hardly anything.

I didn't like some of the parts of the book like when Andy comes to see Rachel at her sorority and she seems like this shallow person.

They both live together at one point for some time, but it didn't seem to work out as one seems to like another person and then has a one night stand. The other ends up getting married and having kids.

This whole book is a crazy, but mostly wonderful ride throughout the years and talking about each persons life. They go back and forth between Rachel's story and Andy's story.

They come back together at the end of the book when everything has fallen apart for both of them. Where will they go from there......
