My Review: (Spoiler alert… I talk about the mystery note sender)
This book is the perfect amount of adorableness. I loved reading it as much as I’ve loved reading every other Kasie West book.
First, I LOVED that they pass notes to each other. That’s such an almost-outdated thing that I used to do in my school days (I’m so old, I know). It brings back such fun memories that nostalgia takes over and I can’t stop reading. I totally know the joy of having a letter to read and that hollowness you feel when there isn’t a letter waiting. It was pure adorableness.
Second, I love Lilly and Cade. I loved their in person relationship, and loved their letter relationship even better. And there was no way they ever would have been kind enough to each other with out the notes. No matter how much time they spent together, it was always in anger. But because of the notes, and because she was able to see him in a different way, she started to understand him as a person with thoughts and feelings similar to her.
I think it’s a good lesson about not judging people. You never know what they are going through.
