This story was a cute idea poorly executed. Some passages of the writing were quite clever, while too many of them tried too hard with the cutsey/try..Show More »ing not to be cutsey New York too-clever-and-hip-for-you language. Also, I did not find it believable that the two main characters could be a couple: while the young man comes across as an intelligent and nice person (who may be open-minded to any number of possibilities) the girl just plain seems too young for him. Her maturity and (lack-of) experience just seems too far behind where he is in life. Through the notebook you do get the hint that they might indeed be compatible - only, in a few years after she's "grown up" a little more. To be more convincing, the female voice needed to sound just a little bit older. Also, I found the ending a bit anti-climactic. So, I regret to say this did not win me over.
