I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)
So, this was good. Better actually than I exptected.
It had some sweetness, without being too sappy. What helped here was that the story was told without too much drama - some tragic events of the past were only hinted at, not taken into the main focus. And it worked here!
It helped also that both main characters were boys rather than men. Their drama and ardor was believable for teenagers.
It was a really enjoyable read with an interesting (if a bit unprobable) plot.
