I found this book really engaging, much like 'Perfect Chemistry', but also a bit more realistic than that one. Maggie and Caleb felt like real people to a certain extent; I empathized with both their emotions and I cared about what happened to them. I liked the character of Mrs. Reynolds - I thought she was just what Maggie needed, and while it might have been an easy way out for Maggie and Caleb to get together, I think it worked. I heard there's going to be a sequel to this book coming out later in the year, which I am greatly looking forward to.
