My Comments :
I agree fully with the description above. It is truly a deeply touching book
Do you remember your first love? Love during school days? Well, this is a story from school days to adult life. The wonders and the pain.
Guess, am moved by this book as it brought back a lot of old school days memories. I can still remember "dating" is prohibited and frown on. However, many "couples" still did that in school. Some couples got called up for "counselling" and even parents were notified.
"Dating" then was frown upon as the reason being it affect their studies and yet some couples did well in their studies. The same goes here in this book.
Aahhh...the joy of young love. Innocent, uncomplicated and untainted by anything else. But this is also a book about friendship and sacrifices.
Kudos to the author who managed to bring the characters to life. The scene and feeling were so real.
The author managed to bring me to tears with this book. Or was it because of all the cough syrup that I have been taking for the cough. No matter what, I love this book.
I love the ending and the song "Tell Laura I Love Her".
