I thought this book was good The characters were easy to relate The relationship was sweet Althought, i do feel there were some parts where the pacing seemed fast One minute she s showing him around town, then he s asking her to be his girlfriend after one date It didn t feel like insta love It just felt like intense attraction from the beginning Overall, i loved the christmas and valentine moments between the couple that was sweet The jealousy part actually doesn t happen until the last 30 pages and then the ending The ending was unexpected I was surprised but at the same time it felt right for April to do something for herself and for Jamie I would put this as If I Stay meets The Fault In Our Stars. DNF at 30% and something, not for me This is first time reading this author, and I m happy that I ignored negative reviews and gave this story a chance.this is a story of April and Jaime April has a lot on her 17yo plate w having to wear a brace contraption that she believes is defining heruntil school starts w a new student, Jaime, who not only sees past the brace, but sees the real April The characters were well written and i believe they acted realistic in how typical high schoolers would react to the situations of teen love, facing fears, and even pettiness of cliques, parties and growing up i did not give full 5 star review bc sometimes I was upset with the immaturity of April and would have loved seeing things feelings of Jaime thru this relationship, but otherwise very good read Is the developing and growing love btwn April and Jaime truly a tragedy at their age I agree with April that it would be of a tragedy if she never took a chance in loving Jaime Just as, if I listened to negative reviews, it would be a tragedy to never have experienced the love of these two characters, or missed out on a wonderful YA romance by this author.
