This was beautiful and frightening and tender and devastating and a really, really, good read. I haven't rooted for a doomed couple this hard in a really long time. Rowell writes the kind of smart, funny teenagers that also manage to feel real, and I fell in love with these two. Warning - quite a bit of profanity, but it makes sense within the circumstances of the story. Definitely more appropriate for older teens, but a worthwhile read in every sense.
