So well written and so persuasive is this dream-like fantastic love story that the pages turn on their own until we reach the semi-end. Semi-end because we will not know the real power of love until we buy and read the second book.
Perfect scenario easy to relate to for the 16-17 age group driving their own car to high school (mobility = independence), being drowned into endless uninteresting educational school attendance, exams, peer pressure, rituals, made bearable with the love of family, the friendship of a handful of friends and a budding romance turning into the promise of a lifetime or possible forever love relationship.
The choice of vocabulary is perfect, humor sprinkled at just the right moments (and with such a title who would have doubted humor would have a big place in this book?)
Good story, great morality, an empathic approach to dying in the person of a beloved grandfather (the perfect role model for a teenager boy). A clean love story playing with emotions like a virtuoso, Ms. L.L. Muir provided us again with a few hours of fairy tale romance and hope.
And if you are interested in dwelling into the concept behind the Sommerset, here is a book that will enlighten you:
