it was amazing
Read from November 08 to 09, 2012

So if you dismiss the fact that I got up twice to use the bathroom, I did literally read this book all in one sitting. I started it in bed around 9:00 last night and finished it a little after 1:00 this morning. Brava, Ms Rowell!

While I enjoyed the author's previous book, Attachments, for the most part, it lacked the substance, nuance, and pacing that this book does. It lacks the current trend for snark that seems to dominate YA dialogue these days, which is refreshing, and it captures the magic, uncertainty, and explosion of the senses that accompany first love.
