What I liked most about this book is that it reminded me of my teenage. It brings to life the love and friendship that youngsters share in high school. The book imparts a sense of nostalgia that many of us will be able to relate to. The crux of the book is its passionate and exciting love story. The author has done a commendable job in describing the young forbidden romance between April and Mitchell. April’s feelings for Mitchell are both innocent and passionate. The magic of first love is well-described in this book. I could feel butterflies in my stomach while reading the book. The detailed way in which the author explains the feelings of teenagers is on the spot. I was totally in love with the character of April by the end of the book.
There is nothing I disliked about this book. The romance and the high school life portrayed in the book are like a breath of fresh air. The author has thoughtfully added links to songs that complement the story and enhance the experience of reading. I enjoyed listening to the songs while reading the book.
This book is well-written and professionally edited. The story is light-hearted and captivating. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and rate it 4 out of 4 stars. I recommend this book to all adults above the age of 18 years. This book will be loved by those who have been fortunate to fall in love.
