it was amazing
bookshelves: romance, 2016-shelf

What began as a literary treasure hunt flirtation between a couple of cute kids quickly became...

A truly delightful and innocent romance. :)

Believe me, no one is more shocked than me how much I fell into and loved this little book. I mean, it wasn't just the literary side or the well-spoken Snarl or the impulsive Lily. It was the entire shape of the novel with all of the normal conventions: the shy flirtations, the near misses, the almost-meetings, and then, most dangerously, the other boys and girls. It was all delightful and sooooo innocent. :) Even the Crimson Alert and the Sweaty Santa, it evokes a different sensation in adults, still managed to come across as INNOCENT on the page.

And I liked it. I really really liked it.

It's like opening a door to an alternate dimension and discovering that everything is gentle and loyal and honorable and smart. *shiver* It's so odd! And pretty! :)

And of course, the writing is also quite beautiful, too. And charming. :)

Candace Happy holidays! This is a treasure of a book! My daughter introduced it to me when she was younger as she did so many great books- she is the one that taught me that Books have no age requirements! Only an open mind requirement!

Bradley To quote gangster movies: "The only kind of open mind I require is the kind with a bullet lodged in it."


And yes, it was delightful. :)
