Book Description

“Whoso would be a man must be a nonconformist.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Of course, that’s easy for Emerson to say; he’s not in high school. Alexander Jones is, though— and life has taught him that being a nonconformist is pretty much the same thing as making yourself a target for harassment. Case in point: Park View High School’s most eccentric outcast, Christine Strayter. Where Alex kowtows to the fickle whims of his peers, Chris is boisterous, unyielding, and loud— living her life as freely as if there won't be a tomorrow. Because for her, there might not be.

Whether he likes it or not, Alex is about to embark on a journey with Christine: one of friendship, optimism, survival, and love. Through their interactions, he will learn what is important, who is important, and why. Through her courage, he will learn to find his own. And through her death, she will teach him how to live.



Though this is her first novel, Melissa Regan worked as a contributing writer and advice columnist for the nationally syndicated "Student Paths" newspaper between the years of 2008 and 2011, and has been published in Wittenberg University's "East Asian Studies Journal" (volume XXXV) and Gustavus Adolphus College's "Firethorne" (Fall 2011).

5.0 out of 5 stars touching, beautiful, bittersweet January 24, 2012
By Neneko
Not the average, boring, cliché fairytale that we're all so used to. This story will persuade you with its realistic and unique characters, its complexity and sensibility, its subtle and touching way of portraying situations, problems and characters...
I was laughing, cheering, smiling, and cooing when I read this. But there were parts which left me breathless, shocked and I admit, I was crying a few times.
A wonderful mixture of seriousness and lightheartedness, of romance and reality, of anxiety and hope.
A true piece of art, a story with both heart and soul.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet and Powerful March 6, 2012
By Rachel
Verified Purchase
When I first started reading this book, I did not know what to expect beyond a teenage love story. This goes so much farther than that. The characters are not static Mary Sues with overly exaggerated teenager troubles. The author handles them with such care that the reader has no choice but to care deeply for the characters and feel their pain and joy.

It was such a lovely read, but be warned, readers might have to reapply their mascara or grab a tissue afterwards. But the sweet happiness in the story is worth every tear.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book February 9, 2012
Verified Purchase
This book is beautifully written. The characters are real and believable. It's short enough to be read in a couple of sittings but long enough to capture what the story is trying to capture. It may not be an "epic" narrative in the traditional sense, but the emotions the characters are feeling are clearly real.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eat It Shakespeare! January 24, 2012
By Vick
How to even begin? Having read this cover to cover, I can officially say that this is in every way superior to Susan Napier's collected works (even if you have an insatiable appetite for nonsense). Why subject yourself to hundreds of pages of drivel about the use of phallic objects in anime when you can read "Dancing in the Rain" and actually enjoy life. Do it up, seriously.... much better than Napier.
