Shelves: ya
I did enjoy this story, partly because it's interesting to see how YA has changed in the past 30 years.

First, I was struck by the slower pacing of it. Films are the same. Everything's got faster. The opening dialogue scene between Marianne and her teacher seemed way longer than anything similar I've seen in modern YA. "Are you still talking?" That's what I was thinking long after the idea had been conveyed: that Marianne was immature by her teacher's standards, and not as extroverted as she was

A teenage girl is annoyed that her mother is going to take in a lodger. An excellent book to help people see the positive sides of handicaps, and the kind of prejudice that is often suffered. Well-written and thought-provoking.

I first read this book a long time ago and I loved it just as much now as I did then. Not your typical YA book. Although very British, the romance is so sweet and actually appropriate for young people to be reading. Will be reading the sequel again soon.

It is a wonderful book and I enjoyed it as much today as I did as a teenager. It's a fantastic story and Abe is utterly delightful.
