    I have been saving this book. Just waiting for the right moment for us to come together and love one another. And this book is fine, I guess. It's okay. But I really don't see the magic that prompted so many five star ratings and literary awards. It's weird because I was sure we were meant for each ...

    This book was so so beautiful.In actuality, it doesn't have a "plot". Not a main story or event that the characters center around. It's about a boy.

    Oh gosh, my feelings are all over the place.It started in a very captivating way. I liked the narrator. Aristotle-nicknamed Ari-is a calm fifteen-year-old boy who prefers being alone...He doesn’t feel comfortable being around people his age but that doesn’t necessarily mean he’s a rec...

    “The summer sun was not meant for boys like me. Boys like me belonged to the rain.”I've heard so many good things about this novel and seen it all over tumblr. I wanted to read this so badly, which is why I finally, finally got my hands on a copy and started reading rightaway. I also finis...
