This book is wonderful, from the first lines, to the heartbreaking ending, I couldn't put it down. It is a sweetly sad love story set in the late 50's. I won't ruin it by saying what happens, I will just say this, read it, put it down for a while, and read it again, it is well worth it.

I read this book as a teenager and loved it (I'm 41 now). My 30-something co-worker had also read it and we both agree that it was worth reading again. My teenage daughter read it and gave a copy to her friend. It's impact crossd the generation gap.

i first read this book when i was a tender age of 13. i had never been impressed with a book enough to even be able to name the title of one that i had read, this was the first of few to impact me on a deep level. Now at the age of 24, not only do i remember the title,( and pick it up to reread often), but i have it stored away in a hope chest for a future daughter,( or myself) to read. Since the moment i first read this till the present day, a more tragically beautiful story has never been told. i still fold corners of my favorite pages for later rereading, and i still sob and grin my way like a young school girl through this breathtakingly honest story everytime...

It is a great story. The pages would fall out as I read.
