Edit: Sooo... I'm knocking this down from for stars to three stars, because I just didn't like the writing style. It was still good, but I just got too swept up in the hype... I loved the characters, but I just wasn't feeling it.

I'd heard nothing but good things about this book, so I was pretty exited to read it. And while I did really enjoy it, I was just a tiny bit disappointed.

I really liked the characters. They were amazing! Their relationship was so wonderful, but honestly the characters were the only reason I enjoyed this book.

Other than their relationship there wasn't really a plot. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but also isn't exactly a good thing.

And I really didn't like the writing style. Really didn't like it. This was very much just me, but I had a really hard time getting into this because of the writing, and.. I don't know, it just wasn't very easy to read for me.

I still liked it quite a lot, but it just wasn't amazing for me.

Hahaha, my immediate reaction to this line was to think of my cousin, because she loves swimming, and my brain decided she was fifteen.
Then I remembered that I'm fifteen now, and she's two years older than me...
When did that happen?!"

Yeah me too. It was just... lacking something.
