This book had its ups and downs. It was sweet, and full of realistic experiences and stories. However, it was by no stretch of the imagination a literary classic. Just a fast read that can only be likened to sitting with a friend at a bar and hearing...more

A bit predictable, but good nonetheless.

A quirky girl writes a last goodbye to her ill-fit ex-boyfriend. A fun, quick read, patiently reminding me of my past loves, and my memory boxes full of seemingly meaningless trinkets, all tokens of some memory I cling to.
