Wes & June are your typical teenagers. They aren't vampires, werewolves, angels or anything else beautiful & supernatural. They are just trying to survive high school & figure out who they are & where they belong. When they first meet, they don't even like each other very much. Wes thinks June is funny looking & June doesn't really even notice Wes, they just orbit one another’s worlds until they eventually collide (literally) and they fall in love. There is no love at first sight, no gushiness that often accompanies new relationships, and no dramatic moment when the boy and girl realize they are meant to be together forever and ever, the end. Wes & June's love is a very realistic first love, it's full of obstacles and not always easy. When June's father is offered a new job in a different state, their love is put to the ultimate test. They attempt to end things, knowing how hard a long distance relationship can be, but even thousands of miles apart they still feel drawn to one another. But time & distance make them start to question their relationship. This book was very funny & I liked the realness of the characters. It was a good representation of how first love can be.
