Written in he said/she said fashion, The Introduction draws a juvenile rendition of everlasting love, as if there is such a thing. I mean, we have these two kids taking one look at each other, suddenly knowing what love is and believing that this will last forever. I guess you could call this a condensed version of a Romeo and Juliet story with each intense look and every touch having some special meaning, not to mention all the dramatic theatrics of "why can't I be with you?" Oh brother.
Most of the book centers on the two battling to get close to each other while surrounded by teenage puffery. Loneliness, pain, joy, jealousy, betrayal, --you're basically reading the diaries of these two characters. It’s Shakespeare in Love.
Overall, this is quick and easy, sweet at times but a little banal.
My rating: 3 stars
