Best Read In A While

I'm actually excited to re-read and recommend this book to friends! Thanks to Joseph Birdsong of YouTube for recommending this book in one of his weekly vlogs. I read this with a loved one simultaneously and we had so much fun discussing the characters and plot. He'll be mad to know in the morning that I finished tonight when we agreed to stop before chapter 30. I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN!

A must read for those who have given up on love.
