I loved it when she was with Kent. when he made hot chocolate...and was all lost...not knowing what to do and all...also when on the last day...they were in the car..and Sam says " yours was the best kiss I've ever had in my life"

@gali My favorite part was when Sam stayed home from school and let her sister stay with her together all day and going out to dinner with her family!

@ V_bansal2912 I completely forgot about those moments with her and Kent. They remind me of all the Twilight things with Bella and Edward!

It was one of mine as well. :)

I liked every scene involving Kent, as well :). Someone mentioned earlier about the hot chocolate scene, and I thought that was thoughtful and kind. I also liked the day Samantha spent with Izzy, and how much Izzy looks up to her big sister.

I loved when Sam gave Izzy her charm necklace and how Izzy ran immediately to her parents saying, "Look what Sam gave me!" She was so excited and happy that her sister had given her something that she'd cherished permanently.

Scenes involving Sam. She's a deep thinker, one of a kind. You see, in life, we doesn't really go around showing appreciation for the others. The way she cherishes little things, little stuff that seems worthless or not valued by ya, she treat it preciously, and living everyday as if it's her last. That's something that all of us should learn from.

“I think of Lindsay in the bathroom of Rosalita’s, and wonder how many people are clutching secrets like little fists, like rocks sitting in the pits of their stomachs. All of them, maybe.”

“This is pretty much the answer to every problem you encounter in suburbia: plant a tree, and hope you don't see anyone's privates.”

“I wonder if it’s ever really possible to know the truth about someone else, or if the best we can do is just stumble into each other, heads down, hoping to avoid collision.”

“I've never really had a party before."
"Why did you have one now?" I say, just to keep him talking.
He gives a half laugh. "I thought if I had a party, you would come.”
** Of course, I liked any quote that involved Kent speaking. :)
Excellent

Most of my favorite scenes included Kent, but I think my favorite was either when he said that he vowed to himself to be Sam's hero or when he made her hot chocolate and tucked her in bed.

I liked how they evolved what happened with cupid day and how it changed in Sam's thoughts. It was so important to her at the beginning and then became something she detested at the end.
Anyone who says they have only one life to live must not know how to read a book.
