Opinion

From Library Staff

In the 1980s two misfits reluctantly meet on the dreaded school bus and slowly get to know one another. The main characters are interesting, unpredictable, and unforgettable.

Two misfits in love: it’s hard to find a book more sweet and funny than this.

Two misfits meet on the school bus (in the 80s) and are brought together by comic books and some of the music I loved in the 80s. Smart, wonderful dialogue, almost never too sappy.

A book that will cause you to sing, sigh and ache as you see these characters experience first love, true love- thorns and all. At the risk of sounding hyperbolic, this is destined to be a classic.

Rowell captures perfectly -- heartbreakingly -- what it is like to be an outsider, to fall in love for the first time, the challenges on the road to adulthood.
