Sadie and Sam first meet as children, and bond over video games.
Fast forward many years later, a chance encounter at the train station Sadie & Sam meet and rekindle their friendship and their love of video games.
If I were to describe this book with just three words it would be the following:
- Silicon Valley
Tomorrow, and Tomorrow and Tomorrow, is a love story, but not of the romantic kind. It is a love story of friendship.
From childhood friends to adulthood. From best friends to frenemies and everything in between. This book is so much more than just gaming, it is complex, and will make you think about the dynamics of your own friendships.
This book was all over my TikTok feed in the last few months of 2022.
I went into this book knowing that it was a friendship story but not much else.
Strangely when I picked up this book to read, I didn’t read the blurb to refresh my memory of what the book was about, I just dove into it, and I got lost quickly. For some reason, I thought this book was futuristic sci-fi. It is anything but.
Tomorrow is set from the late 1990s to the Mid 2000s, and the rise of the tech boom, start up’s and the rise of Silicon Valley.
This book will make you question your own friendships, both past and present.
It will also make you realise how important friendships are, especially major life events occur.
PS. You may want to have a dictionary on hand for this book cause there were words used that made me feel seriously dumb, and had to go look them up.
