    Cute but poorly written

    It was a sweet story but it sounded like it was written by a fourth grader.

    Cute but very poor writing quality. Very generous 3 stars :(

    It was a cute story, but poorly written. The story was very slow and ther was no conflict or much of an ending. I think the author needs to take a writing class before he writes anything else. I'm sorry, but this was very disappointing!

    Other word for cute??

    Poorly written and very short. It didnt really explain anything besides the boy likes the girl. It was cute but sounded like it was written by a little kid.

    Sluggish and poorly written.

    Really strange and confusing format, a lot of grammar mistakes, misleading summary, and it seems to drag on forever.

    I definitely wouldn't recommend it.

    Its so romantic!

    I love it and i think you will too. Its perfect to read when you need a really good book to read and good for reading while traveling. What im trying to say is that this author is describing a lot of good detailsin this story.

    Not Bad

    This short story was not a bad read,but I was left wondering why the boys was "different". I kept expecting to find out he had some kind of personality quirk or was perhaps even autistic. The ending was a little abrupt but I actually got it. It's an okay read for a short story.

    aww

    I thought it was a really cute little story. When they describe the story they should let you know that it is a short story, compared to a novel that some readers whom downloaded this were probably expecting. Overall its a pretty sweet little story that many young people could relate to. I read another short story from this author and I like his work. I hope that he has written a full length novel because you cant always tell a good story in the short form. I'm looking forward to seeing more from this author.

    interesting

    It was written from the perspective of a teenager. In that case it was well done. Reading the story, it sounded like the main character was telling the story from the heart. Very nice.
