Here is what I loved about this book:
It actually tells the story it sets out to tell. I'm really starting to hate books -- love stories, especially -- that skim the surface of the story they're supposed to tell. They just say, "So these two fell passionately" in love, and you're supposed to believe it.
These characters actually talk to each other (which I loved) and get to know each other. They have friends and problems and a life that you feel like you understand.
A life at an American boarding school in Paris! Which is fascinating.
I keep thinking about certain scenes from this book, which I think means that I enjoyed it even more than I realized at the time.
