This book. I don't even know where to start. Sigh. I'll attempt to get a real sentence out now. --- This is why I read, I love when books make me feel something. I was totally thinking of a bad breakup I had in HS. This whole book was a trip down memory lane for me. I guess I was just wondering; am I the only person who didn't want them to break up? Ed was very teenage boy to me, but I liked him. I knew where the plot was going from the beginning (and not because I read the title) but I hated, I mean hated the way the book ended.

I was all ready to send an email to goodreads and ask them if they could add more stars to the existing 5 but not after that ending. If he could have just written like 500 more words this would be a 5 star book for me.

It might be a little sexist of me, but I'm really surprised a guy wrote this book. I didn't read like it was written by a man. Well, except for the names of the characters: Ed, Al, and Min, those seem like names a guy would give characters.

Edited Review - I probably should not write reviews when my emotions are high. I bumped the book up another star. I still don't like the ending but it shouldn't take way from the whole book.
