Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bookshelf Staple Very cute friendship to romance story. I love the voice that all the characters have despite having one POV character. Very good for people growing up thinking that their weird for not knowing who they are yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I need a sequel to this. I can't even explain how good this book is. It's almost like poetry. It's beautiful... the words, the characters, and even the angst. I think I might have fallen in love with Ari and Dante.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Discover the Universe with these Kids, You Won't Be Sorry I'm not exactly sure why, or when it happened, but about halfway through reading this book I decided I never wanted it to end. I didn't notice the moment when the characters became not only real to me but beloved --I can't really remember loving every single character in a book quite this much-- or when the writing became a way I wanted to see my own world, but both happened. Subtle, poetic, touching, beautiful, this is a fantastic book that continues to live inside me like a friend weeks after I've read it. I didn't even want to write a review because I wasn't sure how to do justice to Ari and Dante; finally, I just decided to say exactly what I felt. Worth reading and rereading.
