I loved this book! I was captivated from beginning to end. The side characters were interesting and even fleshed out. I wish I had Howies mother she was loving and flawed, which was great. Arthur was such a great character as well.Two notes:1. There is no sex, so if you are looking for a hot romance, this is not it. In many ways, it did not feel like a romance book, but rather a coming of age book. The characters are all under 30, so their issues and actions have a level of immaturity that is expected.2. I wish we could have had Arthur's perspective. Would write more, but I lack a computer this week!
