This book was a quick read. I enjoyed the throw backs to the 80's and 90's but at the same time it made me feel like the story was written in the 90's. I don't think that teenagers talk the way the characters did in the book. I also found the story to be a lot like twilight, girl meets boy, girl instantly falls in love, boy leaves girl, boy comes back and wants to save girl. The ending was a little abrupt and very open, which leaves me wondering if there will be a second book.
