This is my happy book. Seriously. And it's actually really sad. And angry. And lonely. But whenever I need a bit of a pick-me-up, I have opened this book (sometimes starting at just any page) and have always ALWAYS read through to the end. I can read this book forever. It's the characters. It's the writing. It's Ari's voice. It's how descriptions can be sparse but I can read so much more into every look and smile. It's how I can just get
what this author says in the most beautiful and poetic but simple prose. So yeah. I've read this book maybe a dozen times in the few months I've had it, but I don't think it will ever get old. I will always fall in love with the characters, feel all the feels, read into every quirk, and have a huge grin on my face at the end. And that's love.
My second novel by [a:Benjamin Alire Sáenz|4841310|Benjamin Alire Sáenz|http://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1310366104p2/4841310.jpg] and it's official, I'm completely in love with his writing style. Sáenz has a way of writing youthful and emotive yet insightful narration that is completely authentic.
I actually finished this book, realized I couldn't get it out of my head, decided to reread all over again and found myself loving the characters all the more the second time around.
