Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Allie Parker is dreading Christmas vacation in Thornhill. She'd rather stay at her boarding school than go home, where she'll have to watch her flaky twin sisters and their superficial friends earn their Ph.D.'s in flirting. So when Allie meets cute Ben Harrington on the way there, things begin to look up.

But Allie's hopes for a winter romance vanish when she discovers that Ben--who moved from Thornhill last year--is part of her sisters' crowd. He's a star basketball player who has dated the most popular girls at Thornhill High. Allie writes him off. There's no way he'd be interested in a serious girl like her, anyway. But the more Allie sees of Ben, the less he seems like a typical jock. Is there more to Ben than meets the eye?

The characters were realistic and it was written very well.

The first time I read this was when I was 12-years-old, and I'm now in my twenties.

It's starting to look a lot like Christmas and Allie Parker is heading home from her sucluded all-girls boarding school to spend the vacation with her parents and her two beautiful sisters. Allie has never delt with boys except as friends and so on the drive home on the New Jersey turnpike she runs into Ben and his little brother Tim at a rest stop. Ben is drop-dead gorgeous and is definately experienced in the flirting area as he offers to have pizza with her. She excepts - Hey, she's never gonna see this guy again right? Why not take a fling. She leaves thinking that, but later finds out that Ben and Tim are headed to Thornhill - the exact place Allie is headed!! It turns out that Ben is in the "in" crowed with her sisters group and is definately wanted when it comes to dating. Now she knows she's made a fool of herself the second she stepped off the grounds of her school. She decides to avoid him, but keeps running into him and his friends. She also can't resist his little brother Timmy who desperately needs to know he's loved and has friends. In helping Timmy out she gets to know Ben better and starts to wonder if he really is just a shallow flirt like lot's of the people in her sister's crowed. This book will make you laugh, wish, hurt, smile, and maybe even cry. If you read this book you'll fall right in love with Ben Harrington and I bet you'll wish you're name was Allie Parker and was friends with a little boy named Timmy.

I absolutely agree with all the other reviewers of this book. I have never read a better love story, including all the others in the Love Stories series. It's the type of book you can read over and over without getting tired of it, and feel completely content when you're done. Allie is a fantastic character, appealing yet still incredibly real. And Ben... If you haven't read it, get it now. Nuf said.

Before I read 'At First Sight',I know that it's gonna be worth reading because I had been reading Elizabeth Chandler's books before and I just love the stories.I was VERY right after I finished reading the book.I just adore the Allie character. I loved the fact that she could attracts guys by her own specialty.

This is one of the best books I have read Actually it is the best book I have ever read.It is about this girl Allie Parker who is going home for Christmas vacation she doesn't really want to go but she ends up going after all. When she goes to the rest stop on her way home she meets cute Ben Harrington and his little brother Tim.Later she finds out that they are going her way since by this time Tim has this huge crush on her he is really happy,but Ben isn't. Allie has two gorgeous twin sisters and soon finds out because of them and their superficial friends that Ben was a star jock when he went to school there. Well enough of this story if you want to know more you are just going to have to read the book The only thing I can tell you is that it's a wonderful book and it is really fun reading it. I know everyone who reads it will love it as much as I did maybe even more no I don't think anyone can like it more than I already do. Happy reading:))!!!!!!!!!

This is one of the best books I have ever read.The author is great I have read her other books and they are also cool.This book is about a girl Allie who meets this cool guy on a rest stop on her way to her house from school for the holidays.She later finds out that he and his little brother are going there too.Her popular twin sisters are part of Bens crowd(Ben is the guy she met at the rest stop)because he use to live there but his dad still does.She has set her mind as to not to see Ben in her two week stay but instead see's him almost everywhere she goes school,market,etc. You must read this book if you are in to romance books.

I have never been big on romance but I read this booka nd another out of the love stories series and they were great! These love stories aren't all about perfect/popular girls which is what you would assume from a love story. This book is very true in character. The characters let me believe that maybe there is still hope for us not-so-perfect girls.

This was an excellent book! I really enjoyed the characters. It shows you don't have to be "Miss Popular" to get the guys. I also love I Do by Elizabeth Chandler. Actually, all books by her are great! I just love the way she always has two love stories in one.
