I'm not ready to rate this book with stars. Its not that it wasn't good, just the opposite - it is truly excellent young adult literature that I wish I had read when I was fifteen (like our heroine in the book). The problem for me was that I went into reading it thinking that it was a light fluffy teen romance. I was having a really stressful week and I wanted to read something that would help me relax, unwind, and just generally get me out of my own head for a little while. This is not a book for that. It caused me to feel, well more, I guess, when I really needed something that just left me feeling dopey-happy/satisfied. The extended title probably should have given me a clue that it wasn't just another teen romance, and maybe next time I won't be as quick to judge a book by the cover art (which (in my opinion) contradicts the tone of the book).
