This book just makes you want to go "aww."

The buzz about this story is totally justified. So much about this book is downright adorable. I am such a sucker for the boy-meets-girl scenario all tied up in a new package. For that reason there's not much that I think needs to be said about it on the whole. The cover will "spoil" the majority of the book already. It's not so much a book about "what's going to happen" as it is "how are they going to get there."

As light as this novel is, I really enjoy the new flavor of the main character. He's not your standard knight in shining armor - it's endearing and energizing to see a new kind of protagonist, one with a "social handicap" so-to-speak. In that respect this story has some truly deeper ideas about love, how it manifests, as our expectations of ourselves AND others.

The moral of the story is not about being perfect individually, but perfect together, and it's a lot of fun to read a book that reminds us of that.
