Penny and Sam have an interesting and purely technical relationship, in the way that they only ever text or communicate via a device. As they both weave through their difficult lives, they share their deepest fears, but will they ever have to see each other again?

I've heard a lot of hype around ‘Emergency Contact’ and in my mind, I compare it to John Green's ‘Turtles all the Way Down’ in the way that I expected a lot because of hype (either around the title or the author) and was pleasantly surprised. Although I found that ‘Emergency Contact’ did not make me implode with newfound realisation, I did really really enjoy this novel!

I encountered a few formatting problems on my kindle trying to read this, but have absolute faith that this will be ironed out when the official copy comes out. I found it rather difficult to empathise with the characters as I personally need to see or hear people gauge reactions even somewhat accurately, but ai was really entertained with the way that Sam and Penny interacted.  

I found that perhaps there were a few things I would have found difficult but this novel was most definitely a pleasure to read, one I can easily see myself rereading in the future. A read-a-long anyone?
