Ok. So. I went home, ignored my husband and plowed through the book. Tears streamed down my face, I slammed my fist into my pillow (more times than I can accurately remember). IT WAS PHENOMENAL. It's been awhile since I was that entranced in a story. It is pretty freakin powerful. Ok. Really powerful. It's a powerhouse of power. Callum and Harper have amazing spirits and strength and together create just about the best LOVE story ever.
This author is as real as it gets. Her writing is flawless and poetic, her characters are amazing, she is amazing, and the book is set in NY. Who doesn't love NY? But, it's a side of the big apple rarely seen, it's from the point of view of two down on their luck teenagers. But, it's so uplifting even throughout the drama. I could gush about it all day. It was a beautiful and moving story.
Callum is my new book boyfriend. He has pretty much dumped all of my previous book boyfriends on their butts, they don't hold a candle to his brilliant and funny attitude. Then there's Harper, who is extremely beautiful inside and out, but has the ability to be a doesn't-take-crap-from-anyone kind of girl. Love, love, love them.
The advice that I can give you right now is, don't wait and don't hesitate for even a second. Go run and buy this book (and Thomas and January) because they will forever change you. Seriously. Go.
Oh, and I love the fact that they.. do their laundry! ;)

What a waste of $2.99!
There was a lot of conflict between the characters Sam and Callum that was never resolved - on one page they were arguing and then there was nothing about them until the end, when I guess they were friends again because Sam was cheering for Callum at his graduation. Was part of the story missing from my ebook?
Note to the author: There are two words in the English language that sound similar but have different meanings - accept and except. Please look them both up and use them correctly from now on!

Please, please, please tell me there is a better edited of this
Please, please, please tell me there is a better edited of this somewhere. As an English teacher, I'd be more than happy to edit it for Ms. Amelie. The story and characters are great, but basic grammar errors and tense shifts (from past to present to past) are too much for me to get over. I'd really love to recommend this book to my students, but I can't suggest writing that confuses "your/you're" and "except/accept." I just can't.Was this review helpful?
