Full Description

Lea and Gabe are in the same creative writing class. They get the same pop culture references, order the same Chinese food, and hang out in the same places. Unfortunately, Lea is reserved, Gabe has issues, and despite their initial mutual crush, it looks like they are never going to work things out.

But somehow even when nothing is going on, something is happening between them, and everyone can see it. Their creative writing teacher pushes them together. The baristas at the local Starbucks watch their relationship like a TV show. Their bus driver tells his wife about them. The waitress at the diner automatically seats them together. Even the squirrel who lives on the college green believes in their relationship.

This is hands down one of the best books I have ever read. I recommended it to all my friends and all of us are now reminiscing about Gabe and Lea... and how much they are like us. It's sweet and fun and CLEAN and written in such an interesting way. I have fallen in love with this book <3

Loved how it switched between different perspectives, minus the main characters. Really well done. Thought it was an adorable story as well. Would love to read a sequel! ;)

I remember reading this! It was super adorable and the writing style was sweet. The writing method, though, was absolute genius.

I got this on Friday and finished it on Saturday, I only put it down so I could sleep! Such a heartwarming book, a really interesting and unique perspective on relationships. It's easy to get wrapped up in your own life and not even think about how the people around you see you and this reminded me that peoples' worlds overlap all the time. I completely fell in love with this story, can't wait to read more by Sandy Hall!

Your book was really amazing, Sandy. I loved it. Charlotte and the squirrel were my top favorites. Casey follows close behind them. And Inga....I dream of teachers like her!

I just finished reading it today and I loved every freaking minute of it. Casey, Charlotte and the squirrel were my top favorites. And Inga is the teacher I've always dreamed of! I've thought about doing something with multiple point of views but I didn't know how to go about it. Thanks to you, I'm breaking past that wall. You're an amazing author and I love you already! Can't wait to read your next book! <3

I was at Target and I saw this book on the shelf. It was the last one. I nearly had a heart attack! It was one of the cutest romances I have ever read. Gabe is such a cutie!

Start to finish with no break, add me to the group of people far too invested in Gabe and Lea's relationship! Such a great story, I couldn't help laughing far woo many times and I just love the way it's written, the perspective jumping is wonderful! And the squirrel and bench were just perfectly on the right side of wacky that you have to love their input! I loved it so much!

Thank you so much! I'm so happy to share this story with people so that I'm not alone with all of these fictional characters shipping the heck out of them anymore. I really appreciate you taking the time to read it.

Awesome! This just pulls you in from the start. Intriguing and well written, it's a very unique take on the classic "courtship with misunderstandings" story. You know it's a good read when you wish the characters were real so that you could be friends with them! And long live Buffy, bringing people together since '03 :)

Ahem, I believe you mean since '97. *stops being a know-it-all* Thanks a lot for reading and commenting, Laur, and for listening to me babble about this story for so long and for motivating me to finish it with all of your yelling. :)

I absolutely loved this story! All the different characters were fantastic, it was fun to see Gabe and Lea figure things out through the eyes of their friends and other peripheral characters. There was never a dull moment and I might have to come back and read it again!

I really fell in love with the idea of taking a love story and turning it into something ~else~, something more than just the two people involved. I'm just happy it turned into something enjoyable for others. Thanks so much for reading and for your kind words.

Such a wonderful story - I couldn't stop reading! You just fall in love with all of the characters, not just Gabe and Lea. (Especially the squirrel. I just love the squirrel.) The multiple POVs work really well and make this an exceptionally interesting and fun read. The dialogue is wonderfully written and realistic and each characters voice is so individual. This is fantastic. I'll definitely be re-reading it!
