It's always so much fun to read a book and go, "That character is me to a T!" Sara is that character.

She openly admits she overanalyzes everything. Me too. And she's a nerd with the same kind of likes and dislikes as me. How awesome is that? But I think the point is that Sara and Tobey can relate to so many people in so many different ways. And that's why you can't help but like them.

Sara and Tobey are looking for something real. Tobey likes Sara, but Sara likes Dave. Hmm. Love triangle, right? Not exactly. Sara's quick to realize she can't stop thinking about Tobey, ergo eliminating Dave from the picture. Beautiful.
