Somehow or other, I ended up with two books by the same author in my stack. Even though I didn't care much for the first one I read ("West of Here" which I reviewed awhile back), I decided to read this one and I did like it a little better. This author will never make my list of favorites, though.
The novel concerns a hopeless love affair between two young people. Not exactly ground-breaking material, but there is a twist at the end which anybody but me could have spotted two miles away. I think I missed it because I was not really engaged with the story to start with, but it explained (sort of) the anguish and mystery and heartbreak, etc., etc.
This would be a good summer poolside book. Easy to read, easy to lay down. And a little more substance than many summer-time novels. About 3 1/2 stars.
