This true-to-life book captivated me from the first page. I savored it so much that I read it again, years later. Kaye has a wonderful gift. She can express everyday woes, idiosyncrasies, regrets, and love as if she lived it herself. The best, is that this book is not loaded with sugar, but is realistic, heart wrenching, and even insightful.

I read this book during the spring semester of my freshman year of college. I was reading it basically for a change from the usual biology and chemistry books that I had been reading. I ended up writing an eight page paper over this book for my World Lit. class, and I got an A. I am a student at the highest rated public school in my state. This novel told the story of an uncommon love between two very different people. The language is simple. Allowing Jack and Ruby to narrate the novel gives more depth to the characters, and makes understanding thier situation easier. I definitely recomend this book. This is the second of Gibbons' novels that I have read, and I plan to read her others.

Excellent book where the story is told from both points of view. Ruby's story is of her past. Jack's is both present and past. Sometimes you get the story from both points. Other times, it is only one view. I got into the story and could not put it down. I felt the pain of both Ruby and Jack. I cried I was so into their lives. It was hard to let go. Well done! A keeper.

This book was simply okay. It took me over a month to read, and I read most books in a couple of days. Very slow reading.

I especially enjoyed the narrative switching between the two characters. This gave the reader much more insight into each character.
