I LOVED this book! I can see where people draw the comparisons to TWILIGHT, but IMHO, this is a far superior story. I don't usually care for stories told from 2 view points, but this one was easy to follow. Grace & Sam's love story was warm & sweet and rang true for me. Stories dealing with teenagers, especially older teenagers, where the sexual tension runs high, but there's no consummation are not real to me. In my experience, that's not how it goes. This story was true to life. The other characters, including Grace's clueless parents, all seem to be people I've known. This is the best book I've read so far this year, and thought it's only 2 months into the year I'm sure it will make my top books of the year list. Grace & Sam just stick in my head and I'm looking forward to LINGER.
