I too have chased after a girl, maybe not with such commitment as in this book. But in a way it seems we all fight the same struggle in our different ways.

This is a very interesting love story. All coming of age stories have trials and triumphs, and it is no different for Ethan and Amanda as they grow into young adults, but this raw look into young love, a love so pure and uncanny, is completely different. Amanda is very ill, and Ethan's undying devotion to her is extremely rare among young couples. I especially enjoyed this reversal of devotion in that it is the male lead character who bends over backwards for the girl. Most books I read tend to deal with female leads smitten with a male who could care less, and Tanha has created a nice change of pace in his novel. I enjoyed following Ethan and Amanda throughout their entire high school career and beyond, glimpsing them through ninth and tenth grade, and really getting to know them as they became juniors and seniors. Tanha certainly has a way with words, and All That Matters is a beautiful story. I must admit, the ending, though extremely real, left me somewhat aghast. I wasn't expecting it, and it did change my feelings for some of the characters, though, in reality, it is to be completely expected, and I can actually say that this novel truly couldn't have ended any other way, even though I may not be happy about it. Three stars.

I really liked this book. It is pack with an emotional rollercoaster they had me tearing up. I loved that the writing style, I can say is compared to Nicholas Sparks books. What I liked most about this book is the struggle, the fight for love that is once there, but for some reason fades away. As the reader, we are thrown in a chaotic event, where we see Ethan doing everything he can do. I love how the reader is introduced and how the books end. I adore the characters in this book. They were well written as well as the voices that were loud and clear. I loved them reading about the characters struggles. It gave the book a much more realistic fit to it since it is something that happens everyday. The love interest of this book is bittersweet, but so written good! I think I struggled towards the end with hiding my tears by then. After all that they went through...It's just a love that wasn't given the time it needed. Overall, this is great book about love found and loved not lost but....something to cherish. I can't find my exact words for it, but when you read it, you will understand. If you love Nicholas Sparks books and looking for a real emotional ride, read this book.
