A super sweet and charming coming of age novel.

This is not my typical book but I loved it anyway! The characters were charming and felt really genuine. I think it's a great fit for fans of Rainbow Rowell! As others have said, definitely do the audio!

I truly enjoyed this book. Being the mother of a son, I often felt the tears welling in my eyes at the amazing words the author wrote. Lin-Manuel Miranda does a fine job narrating this lovely book, although at times, I did lose sight of which character he was portraying when being Aristotle and Dante together, but I got past that and I'm sure you will too. I will definitely be suggesting this book to people!

This book is beautifully and genuinely narrated by Tony award winning actor, Lin Manuel Miranda! And that's only half of what makes this book so phenomenal.

This book will engage so many different types of readers. It will appeal to the teenager struggling with their sexual identity. It will appeal to anyone whose ever felt alone or misunderstood by the their friends and family. It will appeal to lovers of realistic teen fiction.

It's a romantic story, but it's also so much more than that. It's about friendship, family, hating school, loving school, and just LIFE!

Lin-Manuel Miranda, the Tony Award Winning actor who performs this book for audio, does a great job -- wonderful, warm, deeply felt work.
