    Love in a Big Bang sort of way

    How to describe The Big Crunch? Well, I'd liken it to a rather nice stroll through the park - nothing extraordinary or supernatural, but sometimes normal and sweet is a welcome change from all the vampires and zombies and smoldering eyes. The pacing seemed a little slow, especially at first when Wes and June go about their separate lives in the same high school bubble. They'd brush against each other every so often, but drift apart again without more than a backwards glance. When they finally "crunched" so to speak, it wasn't the usual fare of crazy-in-love-and-now-we-must-breathe-together. It was, yet it wasn't. There wasn't enough time to "crunch" before June had to leave Wes and distance became an obstacle in their newfound relationship. Not a whole lot of action in The Big Crunch except for one minor car-stealing incident. Even then, it was a big misunderstanding. No, The Big Crunch is a pretty low-key read if you are looking for a book on a normal high school romance between two normal, down-to-earth teens who weren't really searching for each other, but found each other anyway. What I particularly enjoyed was the personalities of Wes and June, but I think The Big Crunch showed most of Wes's story. Neither of them saw each other, but didn't really think the other was mind-boggling hot. Wes described June as a "sea creature pretending to be a human" in the opening paragraph - if that doesn't scream LOVE, I don't know what does :P
