Oh my CUTE!!!
My cousin picked this for our book club this month after seeing the movie and finding out it was based on a book. (She says the movie follows the book REALLY well.)
What a cute story! Told in alternating viewpoints, we follow Bryce and Juli from when Bryce moves in at age 7 to 8th or 9th grade.
The alternating viewpoints are done beautifully. We get to see events from both characters and it's practically flawless in terms of flow.
The ending is great-- not too much but not too little. The reader is left with a sense of optimism and is able to fill in whatever else may happen themselves.
All in all, I loved this book. Cute, cute story. I would not call it a romance, but it's definitely a coming-of-age with a bit of a love story.
Counts for the Support Your Local Library Challenge and, of course, for my book club. :)
