3.5 stars
I really enjoyed this book, the story is utterly sweet.
I didn't give it more stars because I couldn't connect with Lola and/or Cricket as much as I would have liked.
I liked them, not loved them.

Also I didn't enjoy how in the first half of the book, Lola refers to Etienne as some kind of goofy slacker.

Anyway, the second half of the book gets a lot better and the story more interesting.
My favorite characters were Andy and Lindsey.

I liked the end and of course, Stephanie Perkins' writing is flawless so it makes the reading easy.
I'll be getting the next book ASAP.

hehe Thank you, I'm not putting much effort in my reviews lately, I don't even have much time to read, less to review but if I don't write something, then I forget why I chose that rating :D
