Publisher's Summary

John Green meets Rainbow Rowell in this irresistible story of first love, broken hearts, and the golden seams that put them back together again.

Henry Page has never been in love. He fancies himself a hopeless romantic, but the slo-mo, heart palpitating, can't-eat-can't-sleep kind of love that he's been hoping for just hasn't been in the cards for him - at least not yet. Instead he's been happy to focus on his grades, on getting into a semi-decent college, and on finally becoming editor of his school newspaper. Then Grace Town walks into his first period class on the third Tuesday of senior year, and he knows everything's about to change.

Grace isn't whom Henry pictured as his dream girl - she walks with a cane, wears oversized boys' clothes, and rarely seems to shower. But when Grace and Henry are both chosen to edit the school paper, he quickly finds himself falling for her. It's obvious there's something broken about Grace, but it seems to make her even more beautiful to Henry, and he wants nothing more than to help her put the pieces back together again. And yet this isn't your average story of boy meets girl. Krystal Sutherland's brilliant debut is equal parts wit and heartbreak, a potent reminder of the bittersweet bliss that is first love.

No

I'm going to return this one. I totally didn't enjoy it. The bad love child of John Green and Jennifer Niven.

Ahh the infamous MPDG

I loved this book, honestly I did. Even though at times I started to get fed up with how stereotypically "teenager" the relationship between the main characters was, I still really liked it. **Mild Spoilers***It's a heartwarming, that really dives into what it's like after you lose someone you love, and how people deal with those feeling differently. Even though I'm all for stereotypical happy endings, I really appreciated how realistically this book ended.

Oh and side note, I'm literally in love with Robbie Daymond's voice 😂😂. He didn't have quite enough differentiation between characters, but he was great nonetheless. Definitely my favorite YA guy voice lol.

Sometimes it tries too hard, but then it hits you

It sometimes was such a mish mash of hipster culture and angst that it threatened to overtake the beautiful themes. It didn't, however, and by the end I was satisfied and introspective the way a good book usually leaves me.

Heartfelt

This was a refreshingly raw book. I enjoyed every minute of it. It's been a while since I've listened/read a book that really connects the reader with the characters.

Great story -authentic and awe-inspiring

I love how the author weaves you into a tale and uses beautiful language yet it still feels fresh and perfect for teenagers. The only drawback would be that the narrator doesn't distinguish his voice enough between characters as I sometimes got confused who was speaking. Recommend highly!
